Cardinals' Brad Miller: Spot appears secure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller projected for "ample playing time" all over the field in 2020 when spring training was suspended, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The veteran's ability to play multiple infield and outfield spots combined with the March 7 release of Yairo Munoz seemingly left Miller with solid job security when play was paused. His Grapefruit League play didn't exactly hurt his cause either, with the 30-year-old hitting .267 (4-for-15) with two doubles, three RBI, two walks and three runs across six games. Miller had a solid rebound season in 2019 while splitting time with the Indians and Phillies, slashing .260/.329/.565 with 20 extra-base hits (six doubles, one triple, 13 home runs) across 170 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Better shot at utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller, who returned to Grapefruit League action from a back injury against the Red Sox on Tuesday, appears to have the inside track to the utility role due to the recent release of Yairo Munoz, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

Miller is a veteran who's capable of playing up to a wide range of positions, so if it comes down to him and the promising but unproven Edmundo Sosa, the former could have the upper hand. Manager Mike Shildt commented Tuesday that in addition to seeing time at second base, third base and left field -- all positions Miller filled with the Indians and Phillies in 2019 -- the 30-year-old could also play shortstop on occasion this coming season if he nabs a roster spot.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Resumes playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (back) started at third base in Tuesday's exhibition game against the Red Sox and went 1-for-2 with two RBI.

Miller missed over a week of games due to his sore back, but he was able to get back on the field Tuesday. He will attempt to secure some sort of utility role with the Cardinals over the final couple weeks of spring training.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Ups activity level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (back) participated in a full workout Sunday and will be evaluated Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Miller was originally expected to return to action Saturday, but he continued to sit out for precautionary reasons. The veteran has reportedly been taking practice swings without issues, and manager Mike Shildt said Miller could be in the lineup Tuesday if all goes well with the evaluation.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Absence continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (back) remains sidelined, according to Jeff Jones of The News-Democrat.

It was thought that Miller would rejoin the lineup Saturday, but he is not ready to resume playing in games just yet, and it remains to be seen when he will be. However, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports Miller is taking practice swings and is simply being held out for precautionary reasons.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Likely returning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (back) is slated to return to Grapefruit League action Saturday against the Astros, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Miller, who's hitting .300 over his first four spring games, was scratched from Sunday's game against the Astros with back stiffness. Miller will remain out through the next two games Wednesday and Thursday, and he'll get an extra day of rest on Friday's team off day before jumping back into action.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Out with back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was scratched from Sunday's Grapefruit League lineup against the Astros with lower back stiffness, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Miller was slated to start at third base and bat fifth, but he was instead removed from the lineup with the back issue. The team labeled the veteran infielder as day-to-day, so it doesn't appear to be a serious concern.

Cardinals' Brad Miller: Gets majors deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller signed a one-year, major-league contract with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old's career appeared to be stalling out before his landed with the Phillies in the middle of last season and slashed .263/.331/.610 over 130 plate appearances to close the year. That display of power was quite a surprise for a player with a career .419 slugging percentage, but it evidently impressed the Cardinals enough that he was offered a big-league deal. Miller can play anywhere on the infield as well as the outfield corners, which should help him earn a bench spot, at minimum. He could even play a larger role if he hits well enough to wrest at-bats away from Tommy Edman or Kolten Wong.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Goes deep twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 4-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in a 4-3 loss against the Marlins on Sunday.

While he didn't reach base a lot, Miller posted a .305 ISO in limited opportunities during 2019. He's recorded 20 extra-base hits in just 154 at-bats this season, including seven home runs in his final nine contests. In three of those nine games, Miller had multiple homers. He finished the season hitting .260 with 13 home runs, 25 RBI, 26 runs and two steals in 79 games.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is not in the lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

Miller sits after starting nine of the last 10 games in left field. He hit .313 with five homers over that stretch. Phil Gosselin gets the start in his absence.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Clubs two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 3-for-7 with two home runs and four RBI across both games of the team's doubleheader Tuesday against the Nationals.

Miller started both games in left field but did his damage in the second game of the doubleheader. He took Max Scherzer deep in the first inning for a three-run homer and followed that up with a solo shot in the fourth frame. The effort marks his second multi-homer effort in his last four starts, bringing his homer total to 10 on the season.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is not in the lineup Monday against Washington.

Miller hits the bench after starting four straight games in left field. Jose Pirela starts there Monday with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound for the Nationals.

September 22, 2019 07:16 PM
Phillies' Brad Miller: Goes deep twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs Saturday against the Indians.

Miller went deep in the fourth and ninth innings to give him eight home runs on the season. He's struggled to get regular at-bats for much of the campaign, though he has now started three consecutive games and collected at least one hit in each. For the season, Miller is hitting just .233/.313/.481 across 71 games.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Blasts solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Miller got the Phillies on the board with a long ball to left field in the second inning. The multi-hit game was his first in over two months and marked a positive start to September after Miller hit just .149 (7-for-47) in June and July. He is slashing .233/.331/.476 with six homers and 15 RBI in 118 plate appearances between Cleveland and Philadelphia this season.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Miller had started the previous two games at third base but will cede the position to the recently recalled Maikel Franco in the series finale. Bryce Harper is expected to return from the paternity list ahead of Monday's game against the Pirates and should reclaim a spot in the outfield, which will likely result in Scott Kingery taking back over at the hot corner on a full-time basis.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Activated off injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (hip) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Miller landed on the shelf July 24 with a right hip flexor strain, but he was able to make a relatively quick return with no rehab assignment. The veteran infielder figures to resume his utility role for the Phillies but could see additional opportunities at third base with Maikel Franco optioned to Lehigh Valley.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Lands on IL with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies placed Miller on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right hip flexor strain.

Miller likely picked up the injury at some point during Tuesday's 15-inning win over the Tigers, when he came off the bench late in the contest and made a pivotal defensive play to wipe out a potential go-ahead run by Detroit. The Phillies activated Sean Rodriguez (abdomen) from the IL in a corresponding move, and he'll essentially fill the utility role that Miller had occupied prior to getting hurt.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Miller picked up a start at third base in both of the past two games, smacking a home run and driving in three runs between the contests. Now that Maikel Franco has recovered from his groin injury, he'll take back his usual duties at the hot corner while Miller returns to his normal bench role.

Phillies' Brad Miller: Acquired by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was traded from the Yankees to the Phillies on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Miller is expected to join the Phillies in Atlanta this weekend. The 29-year-old utility man was slashing .294/.399/.596 with 10 homers and a stolen base through 41 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before being acquired by Philadelphia. Miller figures to provide the Phillies with a left-handed bat off the bench.

Yankees' Brad Miller: Signs minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Monday.

The veteran infielder became a free agent after he was designated for assignment by the Indians on Wednesday, clearing the way for the Yankees to pick him up on a minor-league deal as a depth move with the team currently depleted by injuries. Miller slashed .250/.325/.417 in 13 games with Cleveland, and could get called up at some point in the event of another injury or if Tyler Wade continues to struggle at the plate.
