Cubs' Ian Miller: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season.

Miller doesn't do a ton with the bat, but he does give the Cubs some much-needed speed off the bench. The 28-year-old could see action this year as a pinch-runner, which is unlikely to translate to much fantasy value beyond a few scattered steals.

Cubs' Ian Miller: In the running for 26th roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is one of several candidates for the Cubs' final roster spot out of spring training, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

MLB has expanded rosters to 26 this season, giving Miller an extra opportunity to start the year in the majors. The 28-year-old hit just .176/.176/.235 in 12 games with the Twins last year, but he's known primarily for his speed, as he stole 37 bases across 123 games in the minors in 2019. Miller is likely battling fellow outfielder Steven Souza and catcher Josh Phegley for the roster spot.

Cubs' Ian Miller: Has two hits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Rangers.

Miller has been impressive so far this spring, going 6-for-12 with two doubles and five runs scored in six games. The 28-year-old is pushing for a reserve outfield spot, though he's more likely to begin the season with Triple-A Iowa and possibly get a look down the road.

Cubs' Ian Miller: Joins Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Miller was shipped from the Mariners to the Twins in August and ended up appearing in 12 major-league games, but he went 3-for-17 with two runs scored and a double in 17 plate appearances. The 27-year-old has a .704 OPS in 276 games at Triple-A, so he'll likely just provide organizational outfield depth for Chicago.

Twins' Ian Miller: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has been outrighted off the 40-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Miller will report to Triple-A Rochester as a result. Miller was called up in September to add depth to the outfield and add speed as a pinch runner. He hit just .176 in 12 games. The Twins traded for Miller in September to add Triple-A depth. While he hit just .263 with a .774 OPS between three clubs at Triple-A, he had 36 steals. His speed could make him relevant in many fantasy formats if he's able to win a reserve outfield role next spring.

Twins' Ian Miller: Headed to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twinsselected Miller's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

The Twins acquired Miller from the Mariners in August, with the outfielder churning out a .233/.319/.317 line in 15 games at Rochester following his acquisition. The 27-year-old logged 35 stolen bases between his two Triple-A stops this season, so he'll likely provide his most value to the Twins as a pinch runner and late-inning defensive replacement in September.

Twins' Ian Miller: Dealt to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was traded from the Mariners to the Twins on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners are expected to receive cash considerations in return for Miller. He's spent 105 games this season with Triple-A Tacoma, slashing .272/.354/.453 with 11 home runs, 54 RBI and 29 stolen bases.

Mariners' Ian Miller: Reinstated from temporary inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was reinstated from the temporary inactive list Saturday, Josh Kirshenbaum of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Miller was brought back to the roster after taking a brief leave for an undisclosed reason. The 26-year-old is slashing .290/.370/.353 with 19 stolen bases for Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners' Ian Miller: On temporary inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was placed on the temporary inactive list Wednesday, Josh Kirshenbaum of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The Rainiers didn't announce a reason as to why Miller was put on the inactive list but it's expected that he will be away from the club for a few days while dealing with a personal matter. Over 67 games for Triple-A Tacoma this season, Miller is slashing .290/.370/.353 with 28 RBI and 19 stolen bases.

Mariners' Ian Miller: Enjoying solid Triple-A season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is slashing .294/.376/.341 with five extra-base hits (three doubles, one triple, one home run) and 23 RBI over 199 plate appearances at Triple-A Tacoma.

The outfielder has bumped up all three components of his slash line from last season, his first with the Rainiers. The speedy Miller has also swiped 14 bases along the way, and he's encouragingly upped his walk rate to a career-best 10.6 percent. The one conundrum for Miller with respect to a potential ascension is that the outfield remains relatively well-stocked at the big-league level, and his dearth of power projects as an additional cap on his overall upside.

Mariners' Ian Miller: Assigned to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners reassigned Miller to their minor-league camp Sunday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Miller looks bound to open the campaign at Triple-A Tacoma after finishing the 2017 campaign at the highest level of the minors and slashing .268/.297/.315 over 177 plate appearances. The 26-year-old profiles as a fourth or fifth outfielder in the majors, given his paucity of power.
