Miller expected to rejoin lineup Monday

ANAHEIM -- Mariners shortstop Brad Miller didn't start for the eighth straight game on Sunday as Carlos Triunfel got the nod for the series finale against the Angels. Miller is nearly fully recovered from a strained left hamstring, but manager Eric Wedge is taking the cautious route with just a week of games remaining.

Miller, 23, came off the bench with a pinch-hit single and scored a run in Saturday's 6-5 loss and is available again in reserve on Sunday.

"He's probably good to go, but we're going to play it safe and give him one more day," Wedge said prior to Sunday's contest. "I know he's anxious to get back in there, but I think to give him one more day is probably a good thing. We'll err on that side of things and get him back in there tomorrow."

Miller has hit .262 in 70 games since being promoted from Triple-A Tacoma in late June. Since the All-Star break, he's ranked second among all American League rookies in hits (59) and runs (28) and fourth in RBIs (24).
