PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - The arrival of Robinson Cano suddenly left Brad Miller in the midst of a competition.
Throughout his first experience last season with the Seattle Mariners, Miller showed signs at the plate and in the field that he could be a long-term answer at shortstop.
And then the Mariners threw $240 million toward Cano, and Miller was left to enter spring training in a battle with teammate Nick Franklin to be the Mariners' starting shortstop.
