Miller pitched Cal Baptist to the Division II West regional final, pitching on three days' rest after winning the regional opener. The listed 6-foot-5, 200-pounder should become the highest-drafted player in school history, topping 2014 seventh-rounder Trevor Oaks (Dodgers). Miller, who struck out 29 in 25 Cape Cod League innings last summer, maintained his prospect status this season by throwing plenty of strikes with a 91-93 mph fastball that can reach 96. He's more of a groundball pitcher than a power guy, with an above-average low-80s slider that can miss bats but also induces weak groundball outs. His changeup needs fine-tuning to be an average pitch. Miller, who was throwing in the mid-80s in high school, has matured nicely and still could have a bit more left in the tank. He's expected to be picked in the first five rounds.
