  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Sits against lefty

    Miller is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros.

    The Rangers are facing off against lefty Framber Valdez in the series opener, so the lefty-hitting Miller will head to the bench so Texas can get an extra right-handed bat in the lineup. Miller has made two of his last three starts as a designated hitter, but he may see his pathway to playing time at that spot become more blocked against right-handed pitching following the Rangers' activation of Mitch Garver (elbow) from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Though Garver opened the season as the Rangers' top catcher, he has yet to resume throwing since initially suffering the elbow injury earlier this month, so he'll be limited to a DH-only role in the short term. If Garver ends up clogging up the DH spot against right-handed pitching, the Rangers may have to send third baseman Andy Ibanez or outfielder Eli White to the bench more frequently if they want to keep a spot in the lineup open for Miller.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Homers in win

    Miller went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    Miller launched his sixth homer of the season during the seventh inning to give Texas a lead that Matt Bush was unable to protect later in the game. His leadoff single to start the game for Texas snapped an 0-for-12 skid, as Miller continues to battle at the plate. He's batting just .213 (19-for-89) but has 18 RBI over 31 games, which ties him for second on the team.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: On bench against lefty

    Miller will hit the bench Tuesday against the Angels.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Walks, steals in loss

    Miller went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Red Sox.

    Miller swiped his fourth bag of the season, surpassing his total over 140 games with the Phillies in 2021. The 32-year-old's stolen double-digit bags just once during his career -- 13 for the Mariners in 2015 -- but he's part of a runnin' Rangers squad that is tied for third in MLB with 22 thefts.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Sits against southpaw

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Provides game-winning hit

    Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Royals.

    Miller's seventh-inning flyball down the right field line clanged off the foul pole 326 feet away and provided the game-winning run. It was his fifth homer of the season and second in as many nights. The utility player, who started at third base Thursday, has heated up over the past week, going 7-for-18 (.389) with three home runs and seven RBI. Miller is emerging from a 6-for-43 (.140) stretch when it looked like he might lose playing time.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Fighting out of slump

    Miller went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Royals.

    As is custom, Miller did not start against a left-hander, Gabe Speier, but equally customary he entered as a pinch hitter when a righty entered the game. He pinch hit for Charlie Culberson and remained in the game at third base. Miller corner outfielder/infielder has hits in six of the last 10 games, going 7-for-27 with two home runs and eight RBI during that stretch as he fights out of a slump. While the 32-year-old's line of .217/.236/.406 is unappealing, his situational hitting is another story. He's 4-for-9 with two homers as a pinch hitter and is batting .471 with runners in scoring position, placing him second on the club with 16 RBI.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Producing runs

    Miller started at third base and went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 win over Kansas City.

    Miller's fighting a slumping bat, but he continues to deliver with runners in scoring position (8-for-16, 13 RBI). A two-out RBI in the fourth inning knocked in Texas' fifth run and was the 15th RBI of the season for Miller despite his .209 average. He continues to sit against lefties and was pinch hit for by Charlie Culberson in the sixth inning against lefty reliever Amir Garrett.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Steals base in loss

    Miller entered Monday's game as a pinch runner and stole a base in a 1-0 loss to the Yankees.

    Miller ran for Jonah Heim in the ninth inning and put himself in scoring position with his third steal of the season, but he was stranded there after Nick Solak flied out. Miller continues to hold the strong side of a platoon, starting in left field or at third base against right-handers, despite a paltry .553 OPS over 67 plate appearances. On a positive note, the 32-year-old is second on the team with 14 RBI, has three home runs and is batting .471 with runners in scoring position.

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Delivers clutch hit

    Miller started at third base and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and two RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning win over Philadelphia.

    Miller delivered a two-out, two-run single in the top of the 10th inning, giving Texas the runs it needed for a fourth straight win. He's been locked in an extended slump, which recently cost him at-bats in left field to Zach Reks, but the 32-year-old, multi-positional player got the start at third base in place of Andy Ibanez on Wednesday. While the game-winning knock was nice, it was just Miller's seventh base hit over his last 47 at-bats (.149).

  • Rangers' Brad Miller: Dropped to ninth

    Miller started at third base, batted ninth, and went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Astros.

    As usual, Miller was in the starting lineup against a right-hander, but he was dropped to last in the order after previous working from the leadoff spot. The demotion is not surprising given that Miller is just 5-for-35 over the last 13 games and is hitting .196 overall. Paradoxically, Miller has driven in 10 runs, second-most on the team behind Adolis Garcia's 11, though five of those RBI came within the first three games of the season.
