Rangers' Brad Miller: Gets rare start
Miller served as the designated hitter and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to Seattle.
Miller entered Tuesday's game with just two plate appearances since his previous start April 26. He's part of a rotation in left field and DH that includes Ezequiel Duran, Robbie Grossman, Travis Jankowski (hamstring, IL) and Josh Smith. Duran and Smith have been getting at-bats at shortstop while Corey Seager (hamstring) is on the IL, but Seager starts a rehab assignment this week and could be re-evaluated early next week. That means the two fill-ins at short could become part of the left field/DH mix as early as next Monday.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Held out against righty
Miller was held out of Thursday's lineup against right-hander Gerrit Cole of the Yankees.
Even with players unavailable at two positions he can handle defensively -- Josh Jung (hand) at third base and Travis Jankowski (hip) in left field -- Miller could not crack the starting nine against Cole. The veteran has taken 44 of his 45 plate appearances this season against righties, but even with the platoon advantage, Miller has one hit over his last 14 at-bats and is batting .184 through 13 games....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Losing work versus righties
Miller is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.
The lefty-hitting Miller has now started just once in the Rangers' last five games, with three of those four absences from the lineup coming versus right-handed pitchers. The veteran appears to have been displaced as the team's primary designated hitter, with the Rangers instead rotating a number of players between that spot in the lineup while opening up more time in the outfield for the likes of Ezequiel Duran, Josh Smith and Bubba Thompson....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Not in Saturday's lineup
Miller is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Rangers' Brad Miller: Sitting Wednesday
Miller will take a seat Wednesday as the Rangers wrap up their series with the Orioles.

Rangers' Brad Miller: Resting versus lefty
Miller is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Rangers' Brad Miller: In Saturday's lineup
Miller will serve as the designated hitter and bat eighth Saturday against the Phillies.
Miller, who started at DH in Thursday's opener against Aaron Nola, slots in against another right-hander, Zack Wheeler. The lefty-hitting Miller popped a home run Thursday off reliever Connor Brogdon and should be a lineup regular against right-handers.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Pops Opening Day homer
Miller started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 11-7 win over the Phillies.
The lefty-hitting Miller slotted into the Opening Day lineup against Philadelphia righty Aaron Nola. The Rangers should rotate players through the DH spot this year as Miller shares the role with catchers Jonah Heim and Mitch Garver, as well as other starters who might need a partial rest day....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Launches third HR
Miller went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's spring game against the Padres.
Miller swatted his third spring home run and second in the last three games. As spring training winds down, Miller is in the mix for a bench spot, likely as a designated hitter and a backup at multiple positions. Joining Miller in the competition are Ezequiel Duran and Josh Smith (thumb), players that also have experience in the infield and outfield.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Role becomes clearer
After Texas manager Bruce Bochy named Robbie Grossman's the team's primary left fielder, Miller appears destined for a platoon at designated hitter, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The lefty-hitting Miller, who had an .831 OPS against right-handed pitching from 2018-21, looks like an ideal complement to the right-handed hitting Grossman (career .698 OPS against righties), but that will not materialize early on. That leaves Miller to pick up any spare at-bats in left field when Grossman isn't in the lineup or sharing DH with catchers Mitch Garver and Jonah Heim. Miller battled a hip injury in 2022, posting a career-worst .590 OPS in 81 games. He could also get squeezed for playing time from Josh Smith, who offers similar positional versatility....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Likely to play versus righties
Miller is likely to serve on the strong side of a platoon between left field and designated hitter, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Miller was dreadful in his first season with the Rangers, putting up a lowly .590 OPS over 81 games. He dealt with a nagging hip injury and also a neck issue which would seem to at least partly explain his struggles. Miller is healthy now and his track record suggests he should be a solid option against right-handed pitching. He's probably a better fit at DH, but the 33-year-old will be one of a host of competitors for playing time in left field for the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Officially done for season
The Rangers transferred Miller (hip) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
The transaction officially ends Miller's season, as the 32-year-old was initially placed on the 10-day IL on Sept. 9 with the right hip strain. Miller held down a large-side platoon role for a decent chunk of the 2022 campaign, but he contributed a meager .212/.270/.320 slash line in 241 plate appearances. Given his advancing age, poor offensive production this season and lack of defensive value, Miller will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal when he becomes a free agent this winter....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Lands on injured list
Miller was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hip strain Friday.
Miller has been sidelined since Aug. 31 due to his hip injury, so his move to the IL is likely backdated a few days. The transaction helps to make room on the active roster for Josh Jung, whose contract was officially selected Friday. It's not yet clear when Miller will be able to return to game action....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Likely moving to IL
Miller (hip), who is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Miller hasn't seen game action since Aug. 31 due to the hip injury, and it appears the Rangers are finally set to move him to the injured list. The transaction will make room on the major-league roster for the promotion of prospect Josh Jung, who should receive an extended look at third base down the stretch for Texas.... See More ...

Rangers' Brad Miller: Dealing with hip discomfort
Miller is dealing with right hip discomfort and could require a trip to the injured list, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
This explains why Miller has not seen game action since Aug. 31. Even once he is ready to return, the Rangers will likely spread out the playing time in order to develop their younger players.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Brad Miller: Heads to bench Tuesday
Miller is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

Rangers' Brad Miller: Plates three in Sunday's win
Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk, three RBI and a run in Sunday's 7-0 win over the Twins.
The three-RBI performance exceeded Miller's output (two) from his previous 24 games combined, a drought that extends back nearly two months. Even though he's holding down a mediocre .584 OPS for the season, the lefty-hitting Miller appears to have at least resolidified himself as a strong-side platoon player at designated hitter. He'll start at DH in Monday's series finale and will bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
