The Oakland Athletics DFA Jai Miller

The A’s have designated 25-year old righty swinging outfielder Jai Miller for assignment. Miller played in 10 games in AAA-ball this year and he was 4 for 34 (.118 avg, .307 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 RBI and 3 stolen bases. Miller was clearly overmatched in AAA as he whiffed 19 times this season which caused the A’s to give up on him. The A’s didn’t give up anything to take a chance on Miller so they won’t lose any sleep watching him leave for nothing. The A’s needed Miller’s roster spot for outfielder Matt Carson who was brought up from AAA to replace Travis Buck who was placed on the D.L. today.

UPDATE: (4/26/2010) – The Royals have claimed Jai Miller off waivers.
