Miller is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates. The lefty-hitting Miller will sit for the third straight game against a right-handed pitcher, with Brewers manager Craig Counsell tabbing Hernan Perez for the start at second base against Pirates hurler Joe Musgrove. Though Milwaukee will have an opening at the keystone temporarily after Jonathan Villar (thumb) was moved to the disabled list Sunday, Miller may have fallen behind Perez in the pecking order after recording just two hits in 23 at-bats over his last nine games.
Miller is out of the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates. Miller will head to the bench after an 0-for-3, two-strikeout showing in the first game of the twin bill. Jonathan Villar will take over at second base.
Miller is not in the lineup Friday against the Pirates. Miller has moved into a fairly regular role for the Brewers, starting six of the last 10 games at second base, though he has just a pair of hits in his last 18 at-bats so that situation could be about to change. Jonathan Villar starts at second base Friday.
Miller is not in the lineup against Miami on Wednesday. Miller will take a seat after going 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over the first two games of this series. In his place, Hernan Perez will start at second base and bat seventh in the lineup.
Miller is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves. Tyler Saladino will draw his fourth straight start at shortstop Sunday and appears to have overtaken Miller as the primary option at that position, but the latter still may have a path to playing time at the other middle-infield spot. Jonathan Villar will get the nod at the keystone Sunday with lefty Sean Newcomb on the hill for Atlanta, but Miller boasts a .274/.348/.465 slash line and 123 wRC+ versus right-handers this season, a steep upgrade over Villar's .251/.297/.338 line and 70 wRC+ in those same matchups. That discrepancy might make Miller the preferred candidate to occupy the strong side of a platoon at second base.
