Miller is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

After J.T. Realmuto sat out Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Cubs with right shoulder inflammation, the Phillies are easing their top backstop back into action by deploying him at first base, leaving no spot available for Miller. Assuming Realmuto's shoulder issue doesn't prevent him from resuming catching duties in short order, Miller should reclaim a near-everyday role at first base before long. He started five of the previous six games and went 3-for-18 with a home run and four walks.
