Rays send Miller to Brewers

11 June 2018 01:35

Brad Miller is heading to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Tampa Bay Rays sent the 28-year-old infielder to Milwaukee in exchange for first baseman Choi Ji-man, the team announced on Sunday.

Choi will join the Rays' Triple-A affiliate in Durham.

Tampa Bay designated Miller for assignment on Thursday. Miller, who belted a career-high 30 home runs for the Rays in 2016, has a slash line of .256/.322/.429 this season.

The Rays promoted highly touted first baseman Jake Bauers to fill Miller's spot on the roster. The 22-year-old player is the number six prospect in Tampa Bay’s organisation, according to MLB Pipeline.

"Brad has done a lot of good things in his time here," Rays manager Kevin Cash said on Thursday (via the Tampa Bay Times).

"We're getting a good one [in Bauers], but we're also losing a good one."

Choi hit a go-ahead, pinch hit grand slam for the Brewers in their victory over the Phillies on Saturday. He has tallied a .233 batting average in 12 major-league games in 2018.
