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. 


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.


Mariners adjust lineup for A's LHP Drew Pomeranz


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is going with six right-handed hitters against the Athletics Friday night, according to MLB.com. 

With Athletics southpaw Drew Pomeranz on the mound, McClendon is giving Dustin Ackley and shortstop Brad Miller some rest. Both are left-handed hitters and McClendon has opted for outfielder Justin Ruggiano and shortstop Willie Bloomquist instead. 

Ruggiano is hitting sixth and Bloomquist ninth. The only left-handed hitters in the lineup are Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager and Logan Morrison.

Fractured wrist ends spring training for Mariners' Chris Taylor


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) An MRI on Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor's wrist revealed a fractured triquetrum bone in his right wrist, the team announced on Saturday. 

Taylor fouled a pitch off the wrist on Friday. 

The injury will keep Taylor out of action for four-to-six weeks, ending his spring training and giving Brad Miller the shortstop job to start the season. 


Mariners shortstop Brad Miller homers twice Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller blasted two home runs in Monday's 4-3 win over the Indians. So far this spring, Miller is 4 for 6 and gaining confidence at the plate, reports SeattlePI.com.

"I'll take them in singles, doubles, pairs, whatever," said Miller. "It was awesome, especially early. We know we're probably going to get a couple of at-bats, and you just want to make the most of them."

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
(1/22/2015) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Thursday there "is no favorite" between Chris Taylor and Brad Miller, who will compete this spring to become Seattle's starting shortstop.

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.
