Latest Update Mets have had trade discussions about Brad Miller and Chris Taylor Mon Dec, 08, 09:41 PM
An excellent contact hitter in the minors 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, especially in the bigs. Lacks consistency in all facets of the game. Struggles against big-league lefties.
Miller hit .221 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs in 2014. The Mets are looking for an upgrade at shortstop, but Miller will need to step it up offensively if he is going to be a serviceable fantasy option regardless of what uniform he is wearing in 2015.Analyst: Colby Conway
Miller is 7-for-17 (.412 BA) with three extra-base hits, five RBI and three runs scored over his last six games as he tries to finish the season on a high note. However, he continues to split time in the Mariners infield with Chris Taylor so unless he starts seeing more regular at-bats, he should remain on the waiver wire. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Not that he's been so good that people are falling all over themselves to get at him on the wire, but it is nice to see Miller getting back on-track again. He's 9-for-18 (.500) over his last six games with two home runs, three RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base. If he can maitain a decent level of play, the Mariners will be happy to use him at shortstop regularly. It's been a bit of a problem spot for them all year, so a little late-season stability would certainly be nice help.Analyst: Howard Bender
Miller has struggled in 2014, slashing .205/.279/.349, but has managed to connect on 10 home runs along the way. Those in deep leagues looking for middle infield help should give Miller a look, considering his power upside, that is as long as you can swallow that terrible batting average that hasn't bugged all season long.
