Miller went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, two runs and one walk in Sunday's 12-6 win over the Nationals. Miller had gone 0-for-12 with a walk and eight strikeouts across his last four games, but he bounced back with a dominant performance in Sunday's win. He's now slashing .276/.344/.474 with six home runs, 20 runs and 18 RBI this year.
Miller will start in right field and bat fifth Tuesday against the Reds, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Miller appears to have solidified a spot in Philadelphia's everyday lineup; he'll be making his 10th consecutive start Tuesday, including his third in a row in right field. The veteran owns a strong .834 OPS over 116 plate appearances on the season, and he should be a decent source of power production for fantasy managers while Bryce Harper (forearm) is on the injured list.
Miller went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rays. Miller was trapped in a tough 1-for-13 stretch before this game, but he managed to be one of the few contributors for the Phillies in this loss. The 31-year-old has four multi-hit games over his last eight contests, however, so he's still seeing the ball well even if he has lacked consistency of late.
Miller went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, two runs and two strikeouts in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Red Sox. Miller broke Sunday's game open with his three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning that proved to be the difference in the contest. The 31-year-old has now started three of the last four games and is hitting .317 with four homers, 15 runs and 12 RBI this season.
Miller is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Miller headed into the weekend having made four consecutive starts for the Phillies, but he'll be on the bench for the second time in three days as the team closes out the series in Atlanta. The recent returns of Jean Segura from the 10-day injured list and Bryce Harper from a minor wrist injury appear to have pushed Miller back into a reserve role.
