The Royals claimed outfielder Jai Miller off waivers from the Athletics, according to a team press release. Miller was designated for assignment by the Marlins on April 3rd, claimed by the A's on the 8th, and designated again on the 22nd. The Royals transferred Josh Fields to the 60-day DL to clear a spot.
Miller, 25, hit .289/.360/.510 in his second Triple A stint for the Marlins last year, playing right and center field. The athletic outfielder could still be a late bloomer.
I noticed the last time Jai was available, quite a few people commented on mlbtrderumors hoping that he would get picked up by the Royals. I guess their dreams came true. Good luck Jai.
Holy crap, how many times is this guy gonna get shuffled around this year?
Maybe the Royals will be willing to give him a shot after Scotty Pods wakes up from his fantasy and realizes he still sucks
