LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The first Lexington native to play for the Lexington Legends is on his way out of town.
The Kansas City Royals, the Legends parent club, have promoted outfielder Anderson Miller to advanced-A Wilmington. Miller is a Lafayette High School graduate and played at Western Kentucky University.
“Anderson has been a great representative for the Legends on and off the field, and it’s been a pleasure to get to know him and his family during his time with the Legends,” said Legends president/CEO Andy Shea in a release issued by the team.
“He’s certainly deserving of this promotion, and we wish him the best. He’ll always have the support of his hometown team.”
Miller has been hot since returning to the Legends lineup after missing six weeks with a wrist injury. Since returning June 5, he has hit .307 in 32 games with nine doubles, three home runs and 14 RBI.
Miller was a third round pick of the Royals in the 2015 draft.
The Wilmington Blue Rocks play in the Carolina League.
