Cleveland Indians add Owen Miller as Franmil Reyes heads to injured list with abdominal strain
Miller was batting .406 at Triple-A Columbus in 16 games for the Clippers.
I wish I could strike out three times in the pros. I'm green with envy for him.Always loved seeing Birds in the pros. Not a great debut for Miller. 0-5 with three strikeouts (all swinging) a ground out, and a flyout.
Getting some nice media in Wisconsin since he's a "native son".
Owen Miller forcing himself onto the opening day roster with his batThe glove adds versatility and can help get Miller in the lineup, but Miller’s bat this spring may be what ultimately earns him a locker in the visiting clubhouse at Wrigley Field on opening day.
Miller entered camp as part of a crowded position player unit that had a large handful of players vying for limited spots. When the Brewers added Luke Voit and Tyler Naquin on non-roster deals in late February, it complicated things even further as they joined Miller, Abraham Toro, Keston Hiura and Brice Turang battling for effectively two spots.
All Miller has done since is hit. The 26-year-old was batting .444 with four doubles and a 1.141 OPS entering Saturday’s game against Kansas City.
