Brad Miller Called Up to Mariners

Former Clemson shortstop Brad Miller has been called up to the majors by the Seattle Mariners and will join the team today. The shortstop was drafted by the Mariners in 2011, and has done well at every level of the minors.

Miller spent 26 games at the AAA level this season, and before last nights game he was hitting .350 and had reached base safely in all 26 games he played. In that span he also had 52 RBIs and 11 home runs. He also had a 22 game hitting streak through last night. He is still prone to defensive errors with 6 in his 26 games at shortstop, but from all accounts he seems to have improved over his 2 years in the minors. His career stats at the minor league level included a .334 average, a.403 on-base percentage, 27 home runs, and 125 RBIs

The Mariners are stuck in a rut and have been preparing for the future now. Assuming Miller gets the nod at shortstop, the middle of infield will be manned by two rookies at Safeco Field.

Miller joins several former Clemson players at the major league level, and with all the excitement about him from Mariners fans, it will be interesting to see how he performs.
