  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Picks up second steal

    Miller went 0-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-7 extra-innings win over the White Sox.

    Miller had sat out each of the last two games after playing both halves of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Twins. His 10-game hitting streak ended Tuesday, but he was able to get aboard twice with his first multi-walk game since June 26. The infielder is up to a .246/.302/.350 slash line with two steals, five home runs, 48 RBI and 51 runs scored through 123 contests. Still, he's been more of a part-time player in September, with Tyler Freeman seeing more time as a utility infielder lately.

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Sitting against righty again

    Miller is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The righty-hitting Miller will take a seat for the fourth time in six games, with each of his absences coming against right-handed starting pitchers. He looks as though he could begin to lose work versus righties to either Tyler Freeman or Will Benson.

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Riding pine against righty

    Miller is not in Saturday's lineup against the White Sox.

    He had started four of the last six games, three of those coming against same-handed pitching, but Miller will sit for the second day in a row against a veteran righty (Lance Lynn on Friday, Johnny Cueto on Saturday).

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Back on bench versus righty

    Miller will take a seat Thursday against the Astros and right-hander Justin Verlander.

    Miller had started the previous three games, going 2-for-12 with a home run and two RBI. Josh Naylor will get the starting nod at first base and should be the Guardians' preferred option against right-handed pitching moving forward, but Miller could see a slight uptick in opportunities versus righties while the team takes a committee approach to designated hitter following Franmil Reyes' recent demotion to Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Gets third straight start

    Miller will start at first base and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    He'll pick up his third consecutive start after going 1-for-8 with a home run, two RBI and an additional run in the first two contests of the series. Miller has typically been occupying a short-side platoon role at first base in recent weeks with Josh Naylor -- who is sitting Wednesday with lefty Tommy Henry on the hill for Arizona -- but manager Terry Francona could find room for both hitters to play more frequently against right-handers in the wake of top designated hitter Franmil Reyes being optioned to Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Homers in return

    Miller went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's 6-5 extra-innings win over the Diamondbacks.

    Miller missed one game with a right forearm bruise. He was able to play all 11 innings at first base Monday, and he supplied a homer in the second inning to give the Guardians their first two runs in the game. He's gone 17 games without a multi-hit effort, slashing .241/.311/.389 in that span. The infielder has a .247/.302/.375 slash line for the year while adding five homers, 42 RBI, 40 runs scored and a stolen base through 341 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Owen Miller: Scratched with forearm bruise

    Miller (forearm) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Miller had been included in the Guardians' initial lineup after starting at first base for Josh Naylor (ankle) in the previous two contests, but the forearm contusion that forced Miller's early exit from Saturday's 6-4 loss will ultimately keep him on the bench for the series finale. Naylor will also continue to sit Sunday, paving the way for utility man Ernie Clement to pick up the start at first base.

Prior to his departure, he went 1-for-2 with a run, an RBI and a strikeout. It's not yet clear whether Miller will be forced to miss additional time, but any potential absence will leave the Guardians depleted at first base.
