While some fans thought Brad Miller may be the latest gem for the Los Angeles Dodgers, it appears that won’t be the case.

Miller used the opt-out clause in his minor-league deal and is now a free agent. It’s possible the utility man could return to the team at some point but it’s likely he joins another team.

The 29-year-old was enjoying some success this spring, slashing .348/.400/.609 with a pair of home runs in 11 games. He worked around the infield and even in the outfield.

What does this mean for the Dodgers? It pretty much cements that Alex Verdugo will be on the Opening Day roster. With that and the fact that the team already has Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez in utility roles, there’s simply too much ahead of Miller for him to have a spot on the roster.
