Chris Taylor replaces Brad Miller at short for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller isn't in the starting lineup on Saturday, after starting 69 games at short this season. 

Chris Taylor gets his 24th start, and his second in the last three games. 


Mariners SS Brad Miller hits two-run home run on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 2 for 4 with a double and a two-run home run in the 9-5 win over the A's on Friday. Miller's home run came in the eighth inning and put the Mariners up 9-3.

It was Miller's eighth home run of the season, and he's batting .379 with two homers and five RBI over his last eight contests.


Taylor's recall won't change Miller's status as M's starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) Although Chris Taylor started at shortstop Thursday immediately following his recall from the minors, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Brad Miller will remain the starting shortstop, per MLB.com.

"Brad is in a pretty good groove right now," McClendon said. "There's still a lot of room for improvement, but he is improving every day. He has his moments [defensively], but most of the time it's just a mechanical thing where he doesn't move through the ball or he stands straight up. I would say the last 12-15 days, he's been a lot better at that."

Taylor will serve as a backup middle infielder and could get some playing time at other positions as well.

"It's still a progression, but I'm feeling a lot more comfortable and a lot better [at the plate]," Taylor said. "It was good to go down there and take some of the pressure off. I was able to stop pressing and just worry about going out there and having some fun again. I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm ready to go."


Brad Miller out of lineup Thursday after Mariners recall Chris Taylor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Athletics for the first time in 18 games and just the fourth time since May 24. Chris Taylor, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, replaced Miller in the starting lineup at shortstop.

Since June 1, Miller is batting .256 with one triple, two home runs, three doubles, eight RBI, eight runs, 10 walks, 19 strikeouts and three stolen bases in his last 27 games.

Prior to his two-hit game Tuesday, Miller was batting .211 with two doubles and three RBI in his last 11 games.


Brad Miller gets three hits in Mariners' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 3 for 4 in Friday's win over the Angels.

Miller now has 11 doubles on the year. 


Mariners SS Brad Miller hits sixth home run of season Tuesday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller connected off Tim Lincecum for his sixth home run of season during Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Giants.

The solo shot occurred in the fifth inning. He also drove in another run when he hit a single in the sixth inning, which drove in Kyle Seager. Miller finished the game 2 for 4.

"It felt pretty good," Miller said of his homer, per MLB.com. "I was just trying to get in there and be ready to go from the get-go and I put a good pass on it. He's a pitcher. That's what he does. He mixes, he can throw every pitch and he knows what he's doing up there. You just have to get in there and see something and try to hit it."

Prior to his two-hit game Tuesday, Miller was hitting .257 with one triple and one RBI in his last 11 games.


Mariners' Brad Miller in a funk at the plate


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) Mariners utility man Brad Miller is doing his best to avoid falling into a slump at the plate. Miller has exactly one hit in each of his last five games. Prior to that, he was held hitless in 10 of 11 games. 

Miller hasn't hit a home run since hitting three in two games in the middle of May. Over his current five-game hitting streak, Miller is batting just .263 with six strikeouts and no walks. 


Brad Miller returns to shortstop for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Brad Miller returns to the Mariners' lineup at shortstop for Friday's game against Cleveland. 

Miller will start his team-high 28th game at short, but it's just his second time there in the last 11 games. He replaces Chris Taylor.


Mariners 2B Robinson Cano gets first day of rest on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is out of the lineup for Thursday's series-opener against the Indians. Cano had started every game for the Mariners this season, but he's been mired in a bit of a funk lately.

Over his last 10 games, Cano is batting just .225 (9 for 40) with zero extra base hits. So manager Lloyd McClendon opted to finally give his star a breather.

Brad Miller will handle the keystone position on Thursday.


Mariners give SS Chris Taylor a rest on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) After starting eight games in a row, Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor will get the day off on Wednesday, as he is being held out of the lineup versus the Rays. In those eight games, the young Taylor has just six hits in 28 at-bats. So manager Lloyd McClendon has decided to give him a rest and clear his head a little.

Brad Miller will get the start at shortstop with Dustin Ackley entering the lineup in left field for the afternoon affair. 


Robinson Cano moves from second to DH for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Robinson Cano gets a day off from the field on Sunday for the first time this season. After starting the first 42 games for the Mariners at second base, Cano is in the lineup as DH. 

Brad Miller replaces Cano at second base, batting leadoff. 

"He played second in spring training quite a bit," McClendon said to The News Tribune. "If you can play short, you can play second. Is he the greatest second baseman in the world? No. But he'll make the plays. He'll be fine."

The Mariners also started Welington Castillo at catcher for the second time this year, giving Mike Zunino a rest. 


Mariners SS Brad Miller homers again Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller homered again on Sunday, now collecting three long balls in two games.

Miller's hitting, overall, has been heating up as he's nine for his last 21 (.429 avg.) with four homers and five RBI.

"I'm not trying to read too much into what's happening," Miller said to MLB.com. "If you are going to play baseball, you deal with situations. The way to play every day is to be consistent over the long-term. If you worry about things that are out of your control, it can take away from your performance."


Mariners' Brad Miller crushes two home runs in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Mariners designated hitter Brad Miller went 2 for 3 at the plate in Seattle's 4-2 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday. Miller crushed two solo home runs, one in the first inning and the second in the fifth. 

Miller is now hitting .264 with 13 RBI in 106 at-bats this season.


Brad Miller gets first start in left Thursday for Mariners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Brad Miller is set to make his debut in left field Thursday night for the Mariners against visiting Boston. He had only started at shortstop and designated hitter this season.

Miller, who has been honing his skills in left, has shown signs of emerging from a slump with four hits, including a home run, in the last two games. He began May on a 2-for-24 slide.


Mariners' Brad Miller continuing to learn new position


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/14/2015) Brad Miller is trying to adjust to life after shortstop for the Mariners. Miller, who has been transitioning from shortstop the outfield in recent weeks, slugged his second home run of the season on Wednesday as the team's designated hitter.

Miller was taking fly balls in left field prior to Wednesday's game against the Padres. But the 25-year-old is trying to get comfortable learning a new position.

"It's definitely different," Miller said Wednesday, per MLB.com. "But the main thing is, you've got to show up for work every day and bust your tail. So that's just meant keeping my head down and getting my work in and helping us any way I can."

And despite his .188 batting average over his last 10 games, manager Lloyd McClendon has liked what he has seen from the youngster.

"He's done a nice job," said McClendon. "He's swung the bat pretty decent. He's part of the reason we had a four-game winning streak. I've been pleased with him in that spot."


Mariners' Brad Miller slugs second home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Mariners designated hitter Brad Miller went 2 for 4 with a walk, a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 4-2 loss to the Padres Wednesday.

Miller wouldn't be denied Wednesday, smacking a solo home run in the fifth inning to cut his team's deficit to 2-1 and adding an RBI double in the ninth to make the game 4-2. However, the rest of the team was unable to find any scoring magic, leaving the Mariners with the loss.

Miller has hit .250/.318/.427 with two home runs, 11 RBI and three stolen bases in 96 at-bats, but he's 4 for 7 with three doubles and one home run in a pair of games against the Padres.


Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor back in the lineup on Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Mariners shorstop Chris Taylor is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday after missing Monday's game with a finger injury, the team announced.

Taylor will replace Brad Miller, who moves to designated hitter and pushes Rickie Weeks to the bench. Taylor is hitting .167 in 18 at-bats this season.

The Mariners are currently the favorites (-145) against San Diego.


Chris Taylor scratched from Mariners lineup with injury


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Mariners scratched shortstop Chris Taylor from Sunday's lineup. He's being given X-rays after being stepped on in Saturday's game, per Seattle's 710 AM radio.

Those X-rays showed that Taylor has a bruise above his pinky, but the injury should not keep the shortstop out for an extended period of time. 

Brad Miller will replace Taylor in the lineup. 


Mariners' McClendon not concerned with Brad Miller in the outfield


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is switching things up a bit with Brad Miller, who normally plays shortstop shifting to the outfield, according to The News Tribune.

McClendon isn't worried about the adjustment for Miller.

"I don't think you're going to see Miller doing a lot of DHing," McClendon said. "He will DH a little bit, but not a lot. I don't think he’s going to have a problem fielding a ground ball on the infield. He knows how to do that. The biggest challenge right now is the outfield."

Miller lost his starting role at shortstop when the team called up Chris Taylor.

"I'm not too concerned about sticking a first base mitt on him and saying, 'Field a ground ball at first base and toss it to the pitcher.' I think he has the ability to do that."


Seth Smith starts in LF, Dustin Ackley moves over to CF for Mariners


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Seth Smith will leadoff and make his second start of the year in left field for the Mariners on Friday against the Athletics, while Dustin Ackley will hit eighth and move over from left and make his second start in centerfield.

Shortstop Brad Miller, who lost his starting job when Chris Taylor was called up last week, will serve as the team’s designated hitter and bat second.


With centerfielder Austin Jackson on the disabled list, the Mariners continue to shuffle their outfield lineup.


Mariners' Brad Miller doesn't want a super sub role


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Mariners infielder Brad Miller won't be starting at shortstop every day, but he'll still be in the lineup. Manager Lloyd McClendon said he plans to use Miller at a variety of spots to rest regular starters. 

"My vision is to see him as a Ben Zobrist-type of player," he said, per the News Tribune. "We’ll see. This is not etched in stone. This is something we’re trying, and we’ll see how it goes."

Miller, for one, isn't happy about the experiment. 

"He’s a great player," Miller said of Zobrist, "and he’s invaluable, but I wouldn’t want to pigeonhole myself to anything. I’m 25 years old. I’m still young in my career. Yes, a player who can play a lot of positions is very valuable. But also, a player who is an All-Star shortstop is very valuable. That’s kind of how I look at it. I don’t think you can compare yourself to anybody."


With call up of Chris Taylor, M's may find other positions for Brad Miller


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that shortstop Brad Miller may move around in the defense and that he is "Not the forgotten man. He's certainly not the culprit in all of this," according to the Seattle Times.

Miller has started 23 of the Mariners' 25 games this year at shortstop but, with the call up of Chris Taylor, he's not in Monday's starting lineup.

Miller is hitting .250 this season with a .301 on-base percentage for the 10-15 Mariners.

Mariners' Brad Miller on shaky throws: 'Nothing too extreme'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller committed two errors earlier this week on wild throws and was perhaps saved by first baseman Logan Morrison by one or two more, but neither he nor manager Lloyd McClendon are too worried about the shortstop's shaky throws, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

"I just had two throws that were a little shaky," Miller said, "but that’s how it works. You’re not going to be perfect every time. It’s nothing too extreme. Obviously, you want to make accurate throws, but you’ve just go to keep making plays. I made every play the next day. You just kind of keep going. You can’t get too worked up."

McClendon didn't dismiss Miller's issues completely but didn't see any major reasons for concern.

"It’s just footwork," McClendon said. "He’s got a good arm. I think, at times, he just forgets his footwork. He’s got to continue to work on it. I think he’s going to be fine because everything is correctable."

Miller was able to make a fine defensive play in the seventh inning of Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Astros. He went 0 for 1 with two walks at the plate and has hit .277/.333/.400 with one home run, seven RBI and three stolen bases in 65 at-bats.


Mike Zunino, Brad Miller, Dustin Ackley out of Mariners' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) The Mariners will be without three regulars in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Texas. 

Catcher Mike Zunino, shortstop Brad Miller and left fielder Dustin Ackley are all out of the lineup, getting rest. 

Jesus Sucre gets the start at catcher, just his second appearance of the season. He'll hit ninth in the order. 

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