Outfielder Anderson Miller has returned to the Lexington Legends following his recovery from surgery to remove the hamate bone from his right wrist. He will be on the active roster as the Legends open a three-game series Monday night at Lakewood.

Miller has not played since April 19. A graduate of Lafayette High School, he is the first Lexington native to play for the Legends in their 16-year history. He played in college at Western Kentucky University before being chosen by the Kansas City Royals in the third round of the June 2015 draft.

Following the series in Lakewood, the Legends will play four games at Hagerstown before returning home Monday, June 13 for a three-game series with West Virginia.

Miller was batting .220 with four RBI through 11 games this season at the time of his injury.
