Brad Miller, Chris Taylor to compete for Mariners' starting shortstop job
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/2/14) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Brad Miller's strong finish to the season means there is no clear-cut favorite for the starting shortstop job heading into spring training, according to MLB.com. Miller is expected to compete with Chris Taylor for the starting job next season.
"That's a great question and I don't know if I really have the answer right now," McClendon said. "I thought Taylor played extremely well defensively. I'm still intrigued about what Miller is capable of doing from an offensive standpoint. I guess to answer your question, yeah, it's probably wide open."
Brad Miller drives in two with late triple
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) Mariners infielder Brad Miller had another solid game Monday against the Rangers, his second multi-hit effort in the last three games.
Miller played a big part in the 4-1 win, as he broke a 1-1 tie in the eighth inning with a two-run triple. He finished the game 2 for 4 with two RBI and one run scored.
Miller is now 8 for 20 with four extra-base hits and six RBI in seven games in September, raising his season line to .217/.289/.366 in 336 at-bats.
Brad Miller slugs ninth home run Monday

|(9/1/14) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 6-1 loss to the A's Monday.
Miller followed up a 3-for-3 performance Sunday with his first blast in more than two months, but his playing time could continue to be spotty with rookie Chris Taylor posting a .378 OBP. Miller has hit .207/.281/.345 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 319 at-bats.
Chris Taylor making third straight start ahead of Brad Miller
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/2/14) It appears that Chris Taylor has earned the starting shortstop job with the Mariners. He is set to make his third straight start Saturday at that position with Brad Miller sitting out again.
Taylor has six hits in his last 16 at-bats with two RBI. Miller, meanwhile, is 6 for 40 since July 7.
Chris Taylor in, Brad Miller out of Monday lineup
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/14) Chris Taylor could be wresting at-bats away from disappointing Brad Miller at shortstop for the Mariners. The former is in the lineup Tuesday against the host Indians. Taylor is starting for the second time in the last three games.
Taylor is 3 for 8 since his promotion. Miller has four hits in his last 25 at-bats and his batting average has sunk to .203. He is also tied for the American League lead in errors at that position with 14.
|Though Brad Miller lacks the pedigree of a top prospect, he showed in his first half-season in the majors that he can be a plus contributor at a weak position, performing at about a 15-homer, 10-steal pace. Some Fantasy owners were already hot on his trail because of his performance in the minors, where he hit .334 with a .925 OPS in parts of three seasons. Of course, that included stops in the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues, which no doubt hurt him in the prospect rankings, but to be fair, he was awesome at every stop. Will he be at this final one? Well, from the time he arrived June 28 to the end of the season, he was the 10th-best shortstop in Head-to-Head leagues and the eighth-best in Rotisserie, so he doesn't necessarily need to be awesome to pull his weight in Fantasy. Miller still has something to prove -- keep in mind Dustin Ackley, with his superior pedigree, had an impressive first season as well -- so you wouldn't want to completely sell out for his potential. But provided he holds off Nick Franklin this spring, maybe he edges out players like Jed Lowrie and J.J. Hardy because of the possibility for improvement.
