Willie Bloomquist gets his fourth appearance of the year, starting at short and batting seventh. Justin Ruggiano will play left and bat sixth. 


Mariners shortstop Brad Miller hits game-winning double Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 1 for 4 with one double and an RBI in Seattle's 5-4 win over the Athletics in 11 innings. Miller came up in the 11th with a runner on second and took the second pitch he saw from Fernando Abad to left field, driving in Logan Morrison.

"I've faced him a couple different times, and he's tough," Miller said to MLB.com. "He's been throwing well over the last couple days, too. He's got a fastball, slider, curve. He throws everything. But he left a slider up the other way, and I just tried to stay on it."

Miller is now hitting .333 in 15 at-bats this season.

Miller is battling with Chris Taylor to become the team's shortstop when the regular season begins and was given the start Monday. Taylor also played, but at second base, with Robinson Cano away from the team after a death in the family.


McClendon: Unlikely Mariners can keep Taylor and Miller on roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon indicated Thursday it is going to be tough to keep Chris Taylor and Brad Miller on the roster. The duo are competing for the starting shortstop job this spring.

“They both saw significant time last year and only one of them can play short as this team shapes up,” McClendon said, per MLB.com. “I like both guys. They both bring a lot to the table. I think Chris is probably a little bit ahead of the game defensively and Brad is probably ahead of the game offensively. It’s a nice combination and let’s see what happens. … If we don’t have injuries, I doubt that we can take them both.”


Brad Miller, Chris Taylor to compete for starting SS role with M's


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Manager Lloyd McClendon shared similar sentiments Thursday.

"We had two young men who performed well in spurts," McClendon said. "They’ll be given the opportunity to battle [this spring]."


Report: Mariners 'not looking' to trade Brad Miller


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) The Mariners are "not looking" to trade shortstop Brad Miller but remain open to the right deal, a club official told the Tacoma News Tribune.

"Look, there’s all sorts of speculation (about Miller)," the club official said, "and it’s easy to see why. The guy’s an athlete, and everybody — and I mean everybody — thinks he’s going to hit. That’s why lots of teams ask about him. But understand this: We’re not looking to trade him. I’m not saying it won’t happen, but it’s a lot less likely than some people seem to think."

Miller was in the Mariners' offer to the Dodgers when the team was looking to acquire Matt Kemp before he was traded to the Padres. If he remains on the team, Miller is expected to battle Chris Taylor for the starting shortstop role.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) The Nationals and Mariners have discussed shortstop Ian Desmond in trade discussions on "multiple occasions," FOXSports.com reports.

The Nationals have interest in Mariners shortstop Brad Miller, according to the report, but the talks have yet to turn serious. Desmond hit .255/.313/.430 with 24 home runs, 91 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 593 at-bats in 2014.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Mets search for shortstop upgrade, M's could be trade partner


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Mariners could end up as a trade partner for the Mets, who are in search of a shortstop, multiple insiders told ESPN. Even with the trade of Nick Franklin in July, the Mariners still have shortstops Chris Taylor and Brad Miller on the roster.

The Mets appear ready to finally make a move to acquire a shortstop after losing patience with Ruben Tejada, who started 105 times at shortstop in 2014.


Brad Miller, Chris Taylor to compete for Mariners' starting shortstop job


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) 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
(9/9/2014) 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) 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.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.

The shortstop has knocked four of his seven home runs in the month of June. He has hit .208/.280/.336 with 21 RBI and three stolen bases in 226 at-bats.


'Bad Miller' looking like Brad Miller again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/23/2014) I've made no secret that Brad Miller was one of my favorite breakout picks coming into the year, and even when I finally relented to dropping him in mid-May, I was careful to note that it wasn't goodbye forever, that you'd want to keep an eye out for when his fortunes eventually turned.

It may already be happening.

So far in June -- a span of 20 games -- he's batting .323 (21 for 65) with three home runs and an .883 OPS. His strikeout rate is still a little too high for comfort, but he's coming off his best week in terms of Head-to-Head scoring (25 points) and doing nothing that would have alarmed anyone if this was the way he started the season.

Miller hit .334 with a .925 OPS over his minor-league career and was the 10th-best shortstop in Head-to-Head leagues from the time he reached the big leagues last season. I still like Eugenio Suarez more among bargain-basement shortstops, but Miller himself is available in 64 percent of leagues. That number should shrink significantly between now and the All-Star break.
