Nick Neidert Throws Strikes With Good Stuff

Mariners Final Report

Best Player: OF Ian Miller

Miller wasn't even cited among the organization's Top 30 Prospects prior to the season. Even within the organization, he was seen as a speedy defensive outfielder with a suspect bat.

That has changed.

The 25-year-old Miller enjoyed a breakout offensive season in which he batted .307/.355/.393 at Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Tacoma while continuing to show plus speed and defense. With Jarrod Dyson a pending free agent, the lefthanded-batting Miller could have a chance next spring to win a big league job.

“Ian continues to develop each part of his game," farm director Andy McKay said. "2017 was a great year for him, (nearly) winning the Texas League batting title, being promoted to and competing well at the Triple-A level."
