Fantasy Tip: Miller ($3,200 FantasyScore, 6.4% of cap) is the Mariners starting shortstop for now, but watch his hitting before you decide to spend some money. Chris Taylor is beating his recovery time from a wrist injury, and if Miller falters the Mariners could make a change.

Seattle Mariners SS Brad Miller took ground balls at second base Thursday, Aug. 7, and he may also take some fly balls in the outfield.
Fantasy Tip: With Miller practicing at other positions, Chris Taylor could see an uptick in playing time and fantasy value. Taylor should be on your radar in deep leagues and AL-only formats, if not your roster. Miller is an option in AL-only formats, but this is another indication of how poorly he has hit this season.
