Sure the Twins are in a heated pennant race, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take a little time out to check up on Corky Miller. Our favorite catcher was called up by Boston on August 6th and played the next day going 0 for 4 in a 7-6 loss to Tampa. The Cork Man was then sent down on August 15 without appearing in another game. He is now 1 for his last 55 (.018) in the big leagues.
At Triple A, the news was better. The International League fan favorite finished the season in Pawtucket, playing well. In 65 minor league games (2 with Tacoma), the Corkster hit .260/.346/.505 with 13 homers and 36 RBI. Here’s to hoping Corky has a great winter and gets a big league hit next season....
I love Corky Miller.
He might be the back up catcher in Atlanta this year, if not, we'll see him back in the IL.
Either way, Corky is my favorite guy to watch!
