Rays trade Brad Miller to Brewers for 1B Ji-man Choi

Rays trade Brad Miller to Brewers for 1B Ji-man Choi

The Brew Crew made a move to try to stay on top in the National League Central.

Just one day after he hit Milwaukee's first grand slam of 2018, the Brewers traded the first baseman to Tampa Bay in exchange for infielder Brad Miller and cash, the team announced Sunday.

Miller will begin his time in the Milwaukee organization, however, at Triple-A Colorado Springs. He hit.201 last season with just nine home runs, and he was hitting.256 with five home runs before he was designated for assignment.

Miller hit 30 home runs for the Rays in 2016 but dipped to just nine past year. "He will head to Triple-A, and when we have a need, I'm sure he will be ready to contribute". Beyond those decent batting numbers, however, Miller brought little else to the table - he has continued his career-long struggles against left-handed pitching, and has posted below-average defensive numbers wherever he has played around the diamond.

Middle infield was a weak spot for a Brewers team that is fighting for a postseason berth, and the low-priced addition of Miller could mean that the club won't seek out more substantial second base or shortstop help at the trade deadline. Miller has started a game at every position except pitcher and catcher over his six years in the big leagues and owns a career.240/.314/.410 slash line.

The 28-year-old was drafted in the second round (#62 overall) by the Seattle Mariners out of Clemson in the 2011 MLB Draft.
