Latest Update Mariners SS Brad Miller has shown some improvements at the plate recently Thu Jul, 17, 11:37 PM
An excellent contact hitter with more power than usual from the shortstop position, he is a natural at the dish. Uses the whole field and has very quick hands.
Flaws: : Isn't a great defender at shortstop and can be quite erratic with his throws. He's also quite lanky, and may eventually grow out of the position.
Miller had an extremely rough start to the 2014 season, but is finally living up to his sleeper hype. He could be in line for a strong showing in the second half.Analyst: David Kerr
Come on, Brad. We know you're frustrated by that .206 average, but you know you can't call the umpire that word. It's offensive to them. Damn funny to us, but offensive to them. Now we're stuck watching Willie Bloomquist at shortstop.Analyst: Howard Bender
Willie Bloomquist is getting the start in place of Brad Miller tonight. Miller is coming off a hot month of June which saw him hit .298 with five home runs and 12 RBI but is still just hitting .205 on the year.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Miller has actually shown a little bit of life this week as he's now hit safely in four of his last six games. Of course, that only pulls his average up to a whopping .179 so there's obviously a long way to go before we can put any semblance of a stamp of approval. He's got five home runs and 17 RBI on the season but ranks fairly low still as the world waits for him to re-emerge.Analyst: Howard Bender
