Brad Miller 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

He's a deep league dive currently, but there's a chance he becomes useful across many styles/formats.

28 yr old former high draft pick of SEA. Has eligibility at 1B, 2B, MI, CI in many leagues and seems to be the everyday 1B/DH and clean-up hitter for Tampa. Health has been an obstacle for Miller, costing him much of ST and then the early part of April. He's not far removed (2016) from being awfully useful in fantasy, when he played 152 games and stacked up 29 2B, 30 HRs and 6 steals in a pretty tough for power home park. Plenty of swing and miss to his game but in a short year last year he showed gains in patience. 

 

Just one to keep an eye on in 14+ teamers--if he starts to string together some good games.

Working on a very modest 6 game hit streak and went yard last night. Hits clean-up v RH and still starts and bats 6th against lefties thus far.

DEEP watch guy if he starts getting the power going...

Seems as if they are giving him a shot at the leadoff spot (v RH) after the Span trade.

The Tampa Bay Rays have traded Brad Miller and cash considerations to the Milwaukee Brewers for Ji-Man Choi.

He's got a solid chance to carve out the everyday SS or maybe even 2B role. It's a great spot for him at this point.

He's not a SS anymore.  As for 2b...villar, sogard...

 

I really don't get this deal for Milwaukee.

They are even more loaded at 1B.  Thames about to come off the DL, Aguilar, and Braun all as 1B options. Choi was fourth in line at best.

He has a 108 WRC+ on the year. He's a slightly above average league hitter who can play a lot of positions. Useful to a lot of teams.

This is like a tree falling in a remote forest.

Well it may be debatable if he can play it well anymore, but according to beat guy Adam McCalvy he will be playing SS and 2B in AAA. So it appears the crew think he can play it enough to be an option there soon...Sogard will be DFA'd for him soon and Arcia can't hit this year. There will be an opportunity if he proves he can help enough.

4 hits in first 5 ABs at AAA, though I can't see where he played. Villar left injured last night, but did not seem significant.

He's only deepest dive type material, but I held in my 20 teamers to see how he does with an opportunity...
