Rangers' Brad Miller: Pops Opening Day homer
Miller started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 11-7 win over the Phillies.
The lefty-hitting Miller slotted into the Opening Day lineup against Philadelphia righty Aaron Nola. The Rangers should rotate players through the DH spot this year as Miller shares the role with catchers Jonah Heim and Mitch Garver, as well as other starters who might need a partial rest day....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Launches third HR
Miller went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's spring game against the Padres.
Miller swatted his third spring home run and second in the last three games. As spring training winds down, Miller is in the mix for a bench spot, likely as a designated hitter and a backup at multiple positions. Joining Miller in the competition are Ezequiel Duran and Josh Smith (thumb), players that also have experience in the infield and outfield.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Role becomes clearer
After Texas manager Bruce Bochy named Robbie Grossman's the team's primary left fielder, Miller appears destined for a platoon at designated hitter, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The lefty-hitting Miller, who had an .831 OPS against right-handed pitching from 2018-21, looks like an ideal complement to the right-handed hitting Grossman (career .698 OPS against righties), but that will not materialize early on. That leaves Miller to pick up any spare at-bats in left field when Grossman isn't in the lineup or sharing DH with catchers Mitch Garver and Jonah Heim. Miller battled a hip injury in 2022, posting a career-worst .590 OPS in 81 games. He could also get squeezed for playing time from Josh Smith, who offers similar positional versatility....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Likely to play versus righties
Miller is likely to serve on the strong side of a platoon between left field and designated hitter, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Miller was dreadful in his first season with the Rangers, putting up a lowly .590 OPS over 81 games. He dealt with a nagging hip injury and also a neck issue which would seem to at least partly explain his struggles. Miller is healthy now and his track record suggests he should be a solid option against right-handed pitching. He's probably a better fit at DH, but the 33-year-old will be one of a host of competitors for playing time in left field for the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Officially done for season
The Rangers transferred Miller (hip) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
The transaction officially ends Miller's season, as the 32-year-old was initially placed on the 10-day IL on Sept. 9 with the right hip strain. Miller held down a large-side platoon role for a decent chunk of the 2022 campaign, but he contributed a meager .212/.270/.320 slash line in 241 plate appearances. Given his advancing age, poor offensive production this season and lack of defensive value, Miller will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal when he becomes a free agent this winter....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Lands on injured list
Miller was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hip strain Friday.
Miller has been sidelined since Aug. 31 due to his hip injury, so his move to the IL is likely backdated a few days. The transaction helps to make room on the active roster for Josh Jung, whose contract was officially selected Friday. It's not yet clear when Miller will be able to return to game action....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Likely moving to IL
Miller (hip), who is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Miller hasn't seen game action since Aug. 31 due to the hip injury, and it appears the Rangers are finally set to move him to the injured list. The transaction will make room on the major-league roster for the promotion of prospect Josh Jung, who should receive an extended look at third base down the stretch for Texas.... See More ...

Rangers' Brad Miller: Dealing with hip discomfort
Miller is dealing with right hip discomfort and could require a trip to the injured list, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
This explains why Miller has not seen game action since Aug. 31. Even once he is ready to return, the Rangers will likely spread out the playing time in order to develop their younger players.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Brad Miller: Remains on bench Wednesday

Rangers' Brad Miller: Heads to bench Tuesday
Miller is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

Rangers' Brad Miller: Plates three in Sunday's win
Miller went 2-for-3 with a walk, three RBI and a run in Sunday's 7-0 win over the Twins.
The three-RBI performance exceeded Miller's output (two) from his previous 24 games combined, a drought that extends back nearly two months. Even though he's holding down a mediocre .584 OPS for the season, the lefty-hitting Miller appears to have at least resolidified himself as a strong-side platoon player at designated hitter. He'll start at DH in Monday's series finale and will bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Sits against southpaw
Miller is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Athletics.
With lefty Zach Logue on the hill for Oakland, the lefty-hitting Miller will bow out of the starting nine. Mark Mathias, who came off the bench to deliver an RBI double in Wednesday's 7-2 loss, will be rewarded with the start at designated hitter in the series finale while Miller sits.... See More ...

Rangers' Brad Miller: Sits Tuesday, but playing time up
Miller is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics.
Though he'll be on the bench with southpaw JP Sears on the bump for Oakland, the lefty-hitting Miller may have recaptured a strong-side platoon role at designated hitter. He went 3-for-5 with a walk between the past two contests, while Ezequiel Duran and Josh Smith both picked up starts at third base. The hot-hitting Duran appears likely to serve as the Rangers' main option at the hot corner moving forward, while the slumping Smith could shift into more of a utility role.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Delivers two hits in win
Miller started at designated hitter and went 2-for-2 in Monday's 2-1 win over Oakland.
Miller started for the fifth time in the last seven games -- all against right-handers -- and seemingly holds onto a regular gig despite an average hovering around .200 and the promotion of several younger players during the course of the season. He was eventually lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth inning against lefty Sam Moll, so Miller remains a situational player under new Texas manager Tony Beasley.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Settles into reserve role
Miller is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
After returning from the injured list in Friday's 2-1 loss while going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, Miller looks like he'll serve as a bench bat for the Rangers moving forward. The lefty-hitting veteran will take a seat for the second straight game in the series with the White Sox, with both of his absences coming against right-handed starting pitchers (Michael Kopech and Lucas Giolito)....

Rangers' Brad Miller: Hitless in return
Miller went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's 2-1 loss to the White Sox.
Miller spent the last two weeks on the injured list with a neck strain and returns without an obvious home for consistent playing time. The lefty-hitter has been a regular against right-handers in left field, at third base or as a designated hitter, but a .591 OPS against them doesn't support his continued use as a platoon partner. The Rangers have recently called up younger talent, like Josh Smith, Elier Hernandez, Bubba Thompson and Ezequiel Duran, who could limit Miller to a utility bench role.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brad Miller: Back from IL, starting Friday
Miller (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will bat ninth as the designated hitter Friday versus the White Sox.
Miller has been sidelined the past few weeks by a strained neck but will rejoin the active roster Friday after a five-game rehab assignment in the minors. The 32-year-old had a miserable .357 OPS over his last 21 games before landing on the injured list and may not regain a regular spot in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
