Seattle Mariner shortstop Brad Miller earned his 2nd award in his short career as he was named American League Player of the Week; it is the second time Miller has been earned player of the week honors. He also earned the award on July 22, 2013.
Miller joins fellow Mariner Nelson Cruz, who earned the Player of the Week and Player of the Month honors earlier this year.
Brad Miller, the Seattle Mariners shortstop-turned-outfielder-turned-explosive-hitter was rewarded for a recent hot streak by being named the American League's Player of the Week on Monday.
Despite not really agreeing with the team's decision to start using him as a 'super utility'-type player, he's excelled offensively over the past week. To wit:
While he may not agree with manager...
Mariners Rebounding But Many Think They’ll Deal
The Seattle Mariners are finally playing the kind of baseball we all expected they’d be playing way back in the first part of April. (Maybe not the last two games, but still) The starting pitching is better, the hitting has been tremendous and the bullpen is still a little shaky but has improved with the additions of Joe Beimel...
SEATTLE (AP) Brad Miller received no heads up that when he arrived at the park that he was about to make his first start in left field for the Seattle Mariners.
Good thing Miller has spent the last 10 days getting extra work in the outfield during pregame.
''Listen, you catch a popup at shortstop, you catch a popup in left forward. He can screw up at short, he can screw up in left...

Seattle Mariners infielder Brad Miller is considered a 'shortstop' - but the team is currently dabbling with thoughts of using him in the outfield. As Miller told Bob Dutton of the News Tribune before Tuesday's game with the Los Angeles Angels, he's not really a big fan of the change:
His manager, Lloyd McClendon, rationalized the team's position by vocalizing his vision for MIller...
Potentially some good news on the Chris Taylor front.
Reporting from the Winter Meetings in San Diego, sources have told Adam Rubin that the Mets have had discussions with the Seattle Mariners about both of their young shortstops — Taylor and Brad Miller. Some reports have suggested that Seattle may keep both of them, playing Taylor at short and Miller in the outfield, but I think...
Yesterday, Adam Rubin tweeted that the Mets and Mariners matched up well for a trade, according to a front office person and an agent. These two teams have reportedly been a good match for some time now, and we’ve reportedly scouted them a few times and they’ve scouted us. So this is nothing entirely new.
But who do they have that we would want?
We can throw away the earlier...
Struggling SS Equals Understatement
How in the world did the Seattle Mariners wind up with this problem? If you had asked me after spring training what the position to worry about on the Seattle Mariners roster I’m pretty sure I would not have said shortstop.
Who would have?
Less we forget that the M’s had an open competition at shortstop this spring between Nick Franklin...
The arrival of Robinson Cano suddenly left Brad Miller in the midst of a competition.
Throughout his first experience last season with the Seattle Mariners, Miller showed signs at the plate and in the field that he could be a long-term answer at shortstop.
And then the Mariners threw $240 million toward Cano, and Miller was left to enter spring training in a battle with teammate...
