CLEVELAND — Brad Miller had a few things to say after getting cut by the Cleveland Indians, according to ESPN.

Miller, 29, was designated to assignment to make room for the return of Jason Kipnis.

Miller said his main complaint was that he was hitting .250 while the team is the last in the league with a batting average of .194. He felt the team didn't want the best players.

He has previously played for the Mariners, Rays and Brewers.

"I'm a player," Miller said. "I really enjoyed playing for Tito [Terry Francona]. That's why I'm frustrated. I want to be here. I like this group. It's a good team and I was hoping I'd be a part of it, but they have other plans."
