Indians' Owen Miller: Sparks comeback attempt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 2-for-5 with a three-RBI double and a run scored in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to Toronto.

The infielder's bases-clearing double in the eighth inning finally got Cleveland on the board, and he came around to score on a Bradley Zimmer sacrifice fly. With Cesar Hernandez traded to the White Sox, Miller figures to split time with Ernie Clement at second base going forward. Miller has a lackluster .209 on-base percentage through 67 plate appearances.

Indians' Owen Miller: Gets third consecutive start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will start at first base and bat seventh Monday against the Blue Jays.

Miller will collect his third start in a row Monday, but he likely won't have a path to regular at-bats against right-handed pitching now that Bobby Bradley (personal) has been reinstated from the bereavement list. The lefty-hitting Bradley will sit Monday with a southpaw (Robbie Ray) on the hill for Toronto, but the righty-hitting Miller should fill the short side of a platoon at first base moving forward.

Indians' Owen Miller: Pockets first MLB homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 1-for-4 with his first career home run and a pair of runs scored Saturday against the White Sox.

Miller got the start at second base following the trade-deadline departure of veteran Cesar Hernandez and responded with a solo blast to center field in the fifth inning. It was just the second extra-base hit in 55 plate appearances this season for Miller, who also drew a walk, but he appears to have the first shot at replacing Hernandez at the keystone for Cleveland. Miller was hitting .297/.374/.489 with seven homers in 206 plate appearances this season at Triple-A.

Indians' Owen Miller: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Cesar Hernandez was shipped to the White Sox on Thursday, and Miller will take his place on Cleveland's roster for now. The 24-year-old received his first taste of the big leagues earlier this season and went 5-for-47 with 24 strikeouts in 28 games, but he could be in the mix for regular playing time at the keystone with Hernandez out of the picture. However Andres Gimenez, who isn't able to accompany the team for a four-game set in Toronto to begin next week while establishing his permanent residency in the U.S., could take Miller's roster spot when the team returns to Cleveland on Aug. 6.

Indians' Owen Miller: Promotion imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will be called up ahead of Cleveland's weekend series against the White Sox, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Miller could get a shot as the regular second baseman down the stretch after Cesar Hernandez was dealt to the White Sox on Thursday. He struggled to a .106/.160/.128 line in his 18-game debut earlier this season, but he owns a far better .297/.374/.489 line in 48 games for Triple-A Columbus.

Indians' Owen Miller: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

Miller served as the 27th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Rays, and he went 0-for-1 with a walk in the nightcap. He'll now head back to the minors, where he's slashed .317/.404/.496 with four homers, 20 runs and 15 RBI in 33 games this year.

Indians' Owen Miller: Back with Cleveland as 27th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to serve as the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Rays.

Miller joined the big club June 30 to serve as the extra man for the twin bill against Detroit and was retired in his lone at-bat as a pinch hitter. He'll return to majors Wednesday but will likely be sent back to Columbus once again following Game 2.

Indians' Owen Miller: Serving as 27th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to serve as the 27th man in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Miller was sent down in mid-June, and he hit .209 with a home run, two doubles, seven runs and three RBI in 13 games since returning to Triple-A Columbus. He'll be available for both games in Wednesday's twin bill but could return to the minors afterward.

Indians' Owen Miller: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland optioned Miller to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

The versatile infielder hit just .109 with the big-league club after being called up May 23. He also struck out 23 times and walked just twice. Pitcher Eli Morgan was recalled Tuesday to fill Miller's roster spot.

Indians' Owen Miller: Sits in favor of Bobby Bradley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Miller will be back on the bench after picking up starts in the first two games of the series and going 1-for-8 with five strikeouts. The newly recalled Bobby Bradley will crack the starting nine in the series finale, and he could end up bumping the struggling Miller from the lineup on a more regular basis. Since being promoted from Triple-A Columbus in late May, Miller is hitting .125 while striking out in 19 of his 41 plate appearances (46.3 percent).

Indians' Owen Miller: Sits in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Miller was also out of the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader, so he'll be on the bench for a second straight contest Tuesday. The rookie is slashing a measly .125/.152/.156 with a 42.4 percent strikeout rate in his first nine games in the big leagues, and a demotion to Triple-A Columbus could be in the cards if he fails to turn things around quickly.

Indians' Owen Miller: Sitting out Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is out of the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

For the first time since his May 23 call-up from Triple-A Columbus, Miller will head to the bench, ending a streak of nine consecutive starts. After a going 0-for-3 with a walk in Cleveland's 8-6 loss in Game 1 of the twin bill, Miller is sitting on a .125/.152/.156 slash line to begin his big-league career.

Indians' Owen Miller: Two hits in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 2-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Detroit.

Offense was at a premium Wednesday, with Miller recording half of Cleveland's four hits and the only one of the team's knocks to go for extra bases. It was Miller's first multi-hit game. The 24-year-old has taken on a bit of a utility role since he was called up -- that kind of usage should lead to fairly consistent playing time if he hits well.

Indians' Owen Miller: Scores twice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 1-for-4 with two runs scored in Monday's 6-5 win over Detroit.

Miller has played in both games since he was called up. The 24-year-old batted seventh and played third base Monday. He's expected to fill a utility role while Franmil Reyes (oblique) is sidelined into July. Miller has struck out five times in nine plate appearances so far -- something he'll need to cut back on to stick in the lineup.

Indians' Owen Miller: Gets first big-league call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland selected Miller's contract from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

He'll replace the injured Franmil Reyes (abdomen) on Cleveland's active roster, while Roberto Perez (finger) was transferred to the 60-day IL to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Miller, one of the key pieces the organization acquired in the August 2020 deal that sent Mike Clevinger to San Diego. Since being traded from San Diego, the 24-year-old has only further solidified himself as one of Cleveland's more intriguing higher-level prospects after he slashed .406/.457/.609 with seven extra-base hits in his first 16 games with Columbus. With Reyes on the 10-day IL and Cleveland struggling to get production from its other hitters aside from Jose Ramirez, Miller could be in store for a near-everyday role in the middle infield or in left field during his first stint in the big leagues.

Indians' Owen Miller: Included in Clevinger package
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was sent from San Diego to Cleveland as part of a six-player return for Mike Clevinger, Greg Allen and a player to be named later Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Miller was buried deep on the Padres' list of top prospects, though that says more about the Padres than it does about Miller. The 23-year-old infielder skipped High-A and went straight to Double-A in his second professional season last year and more than held his own, hitting .290/.355/.430 with 13 homers in 130 games for Amarillo. He doesn't have any standout tools, but his ability to handle shortstop while hitting for a decent average and at least a bit of power should give him a future as a utility infielder.

Padres' Owen Miller: Going to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will be part of the Padres' 60-man summer camp.

Miller would likely need some injuries ahead of him on the depth chart to see action at second base, third base or shortstop this season, but he is advanced enough that it's possible he could make his MLB debut in 2020. Known for his hit tool and control of the strike zone, Miller hit .290 with an 86:46 K:BB in 560 plate appearances at Double-A last year but hit just .176 with a 15:2 K:BB in 72 plate appearances in the Arizona Fall League.

Padres' Owen Miller: Likely to begin season in Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is expected to open the 2020 campaign with Triple-A El Paso and could be considered for a big-league callup at some point during the season, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Miller fared well at the Double-A level last season, slashing .290/.355/.430 with 13 home runs and 68 RBI in 560 plate appearances. That makes a promotion to Triple-A logical, with an opportunity to reach the big leagues within reach if Miller is able to continue his two-year run of minor-league success. While the 23-year-old is labeled as a shortstop, Sanders reports that he is seen as a "Swiss Army knife player," having complemented his work at shortstop with time at second and third base. He also began practicing at first base this spring. Miller's versatility is especially important since Fernando Tatis appears destined to be San Diego's starting shortstop for the foreseeable future.

Padres' Owen Miller: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was sent to minor-league camp Sunday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Miller went 1-for-7 with two RBI in Cactus League play. He hit .290 with 13 home runs and 68 RBI with Double-A Amarillo last season.

Padres' Owen Miller: Three hits in Arizona Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller went 3-for-5 with an RBI and scored twice for Peoria of the Arizona Fall League on Saturday.

Miller entered the contest having gone 2-for-16 over his first four AFL games but broke out with the three-hit performance Saturday. The shortstop hit .285 with 12 homers for Double-A Amarillo this season.
