Jai Miller Designated For Assignment

The Athletics designated outfielder Jai Miller for assignment, tweets John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle.  That's two DFAs this month for Miller, who was claimed off waivers by the A's from the Marlins on April 8th.

Miller, 25, hit .289/.360/.510 in his second Triple A stint for the Marlins last year, playing right and center field.  In his brief time with the Sacramento River Cats this year, Miller had four hits, three walks, and 19 strikeouts in 37 plate appearances.   Back in their '08 Handbook, Baseball America said his doubters wonder if "Miller isn't merely the next Reggie Abercrombie, a tools-laden player whose skills never fully transferred to the diamond."  Two years later, they wrote that "some in the organization still see him as a late bloomer with Mike Cameron characteristics."
