Texas Rangers Outfielder Likely To Play Solely Versus Righties This Season

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, Texas Rangers outfielder Brad Miller is likely to serve as a platoon player in left field or as a designated hitter.

Also with his track record, Miller finds the most success against right-handed pitching, so he'll likely see the bulk, if not all, of his playing time versus righties.

Miller made his Rangers' debut last season and was brutal, slashing .212/.270/.320, with seven home runs, 32 RBIs, four stolen bases and 20 runs scored over 81 games. 

However, he also dealt with a persistent hip injury and some neck issues which could explain his struggles a bit.

Miller will be one of several players competing for playing time in left field this season for the Rangers. 

For his 10-year career, the thirty-three-year-old holds a .237/.314/.417 triple-slash line, with 122 home runs, 399 RBIs, 43 stolen bases and 389 runs scored over 1,028 games.

He is a former second-round pick by the Seattle Mariners in the 2011 MLB Draft.
