Cape Cod League: Top 30 Prospects

Cape Cod League opponents saw more than enough of Andrew Miller in
2004, but at least then they had a fighting chance. Miller was dominant
but not efficient, and earned just two decisions (both wins) in seven

Miller opted to return to Chatham rather than pitch for Team USA
this summer, and his performance established him as the early favorite
to go No. 1 overall in the 2005 draft. The big lefthander won six of
his seven starts with three times as many strikeouts (66 in 49 innings)
as hits allowed (22). The league’s co-pitcher of the year, he headlines
our Cape Top 30 Prospects list for the second straight summer.

“He’s the Randy Johnson of the Cape League,” Yarmouth-Dennis manager Scott Pickler said. “There’s a fear of facing Andrew Miller among the kids. There’s no one else like that in the league.”
