Brad Miller – CF
The 25-year-old former shortstop had a great week for Seattle. Brad Miller posted a .500 batting average with 1 double, 5 RBI and 1 stolen base. He also walked twice, and registered a .524 on base percentage through 18 at bats. Crazy Legs is currently riding a 7-game hitting streak.
Miller has had a bit of a bounce back campaign offensively in 2015. The Clemson alum is hitting .253 on the season with 9 home runs, 41 RBI and 12 stolen bases. However, there have also been some tough moments. Miller entered the season as the M’s starting shortstop, but has since played in left field, right field, second base and third base before finally settling in as a center fielder.
There is no question playing in the outfield seems to help Brad Miller on offense. Reports suggest that playing center field is where Seattle envisions him moving forward. A strong finish to the season should give him an edge to be the Mariners’ starting center fielder in 2016.
