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.


Report: Nationals, Mariners discuss SS Ian Desmond


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.


Report: Mets have talked to Mariners about Chris Taylor, Brad Miller


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The Mets have had trade discussions with the Mariners about shortstops Brad Miller and Chris Taylor, sources told ESPN. However, the Mets are expected to wait until January to see how the shortstop market develops.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday the "likelihood" of Wilmer Flores being the starting shortstop at the start of the season is increasing.


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.  


Brad Miller slugs ninth home run Monday


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.


Chris Taylor making third straight start ahead of Brad Miller


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) 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
(7/29/2014) 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.


Hitters to sit in Week 17


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) If you're planning to start Derek Norris, Michael Morse, Aaron Hill, Nolan Arenado, Brad Miller or Desmond Jennings in Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27), you might want to read the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

All are considered "sits" for the upcoming scoring period.


Brad Miller gets tossed for arguing balls and strikes


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller was ejected from Saturday's game against the Athletics for arguing balls and strikes.

Miller was tossed by home plate umpire Bob Davidson after arguing following a strikeout in the bottom of the fourth inning. He owns a .206/.276/.333 with eight homers and 24 RBI in 267 at-bats.

Brad Miller caps June with fourth HR in last 13 games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller continued his recent surge with a solo home run during a 10-4 win Monday at Houston. It was Miller's fourth home run in his last 13 games.

Miller hit .349 (15 for 43) with a .417 on-base percentage, .628 slugging percentage and 1.045 OPS over his last 13 starts in June. For the month, he hit .298 with a .355 on-base percentage, .512 slugging percentage, .867 OPS, five home runs, 12 RBI and 15 runs in 26 games.


Hitters to start in Week 14


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/29/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 14 (June 30-July 6)? Mike Zunino, Eric Hosmer, Neil Walker, Brock Holt, Brad Miller and Steve Pearce might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Brad Miller knocks seventh home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox Wednesday.

Miller's eighth-inning home run closed his team's gap to one run, but the offense was unable to come up with an equalizing run before running out of chances. 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.


Brad Miller slugs fifth home run Monday vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-1 win over the Padres Monday.

Miller had hit just one home run since April 11 before knocking his second homer of June Monday. While he's been better at the plate this month, Miller still owns a .179/.250/.296 line with five home runs, 17 RBI and three stolen bases in 196 at-bats.


Injury in minors possibly keeping Brad Miller up


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller has struggled to open the season, leading some to call for him to be sent to the minors, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

Miller has hit just .154 over 136 at-bats. There's a sense a minor-league stint could kick-start his bat, but the Mariners haven't made the move. That's possibly because infield prospect Chris Taylor fractured a finger recently. 

Taylor had gotten off to a nice start at Triple-A, hitting .372 over 145 at-bats. He would have been the most likely replacement for Miller in the majors. With Taylor hurt, Miller isn't likely to be shipped out.


Brad Miller on slump: 'I'm one swing away'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller doesn't believe he requires an overhaul to escape a massive, extended slump that has lowered his batting average to .154.

"One swing away," he told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "One little thing. Baseball is such a feel game, and it's right there. I always feel like I'm right there. Nothing too crazy."

Miller, who was the talk of baseball during a torrid spring, has just two hits in 36 at-bats since his last multi-hit game on May 2. But his struggles extend back to mid-April. He has just seven hits in his last 71 at-bats.


Brad Miller's stock remains on the decline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) There are many Fantasy owners out there wondering what to do with Mariners shortstop Brad Miller? Should you keep him in your lineup, stash him on your bench or drop him onto waivers?

Most Fantasy owners have been taking the last option, as Miller's Fantasy ownership has dropped from 97 percent as of Week 2 to 48 percent as of Thursday. Ouch.

I must admit, I'm part of the less than 50 percent of Fantasy owners still holding out hope for Miller to turn it around. The potential is there. He's just chasing a lot of pitches outside the strike zone and it appears he doesn't have a lot of confidence at the plate. I went more in depth about Miller's Fantasy value in a blog I wrote Thursday.

I can't blame Fantasy owners for needing to make a move with Miller, especially if you are in a shallow league and can't avoid a roster spot. But if you are in a deeper format and can afford to keep Miller on your bench, then I support that decision. If you have kept him this long, why not hold onto him a little longer.


Manager indicates patience running thin on Brad Miller


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Spring training phenom Brad Miller will get a chance to recapture that magic despite his woes in the regular season, per MLB.com. The Mariners are sticking with him as their starter, though perhaps not for long.

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned," said Lloyd McClendon. "He's struggling right now and I'm trying to get him out of it. I've said a few times you either play 'em or you bench 'em. We're trying to play him and see if he can come out of it. I don't have any answers."

Apparently, neither does Miller. He has just one hit since May 5 and his average has fallen to .156 on the season. He hit two home runs in the season opener and just one since.


Brad Miller swipes two bases vs. A's Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 1 for 3 with a walk, an RBI and two stolen bases in his team's 4-2 win over the A's Monday.

After smacking an RBI single in the sixth inning, Miller stole both second and third base off Oakland starter Scott Kazmir. They were his first two steals of the season. Miller has hit .192/.238/.323 with three home runs and nine RBI in 99 at-bats.


Struggling Brad Miller benched again Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) A massive slump that followed a mild one has Mariners shortstop Brad Miller out of the lineup Friday for the second time in five games. He is set to sit against the Rangers.

Miller, who started the season hot after a torrid spring, has just one hit in his last 18 at-bats and owns a poor stat line of .183/.221/.341.


Brad Miller back in second spot despite slump


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) The flip-flop of Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller in the Wednesday lineup got the Mariners was intended to reinstate the latter into the second spot despite his slump.

Miller doubled in the eighth inning Tuesday for his first hit since April 17. But Lloyd McClendon claims optimism that he can regain the form that made him one of the hottest hitters in the game in spring training.

"Hopefully he's over the hump and back on course again," McClendon told MLB.com.


Brad Miller dropped to bottom of batting order


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller was dropped to ninth in the order prior to Monday's game against the Astros, MLB.com reports. Miller has three home runs and seven RBI over his first 72 at-bats, but is slashing .194/.237/.361 over that span.

Brad Miller smacks home run Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Mariners shortstop Brad Miller went 2 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 6-4 win over the A's Friday.

Miller shook off an 0-for-8 performance in his previous two games to hit his third home run of the season Friday. He opened the season with a nice 5-for-15, two-homer performance in a series against the Angels, but he's struggled at the plate since, hitting .220/.238/.488 with a 14:1 K:BB ratio in 41 at-bats this season.
