Auburn’s coaching staff thought Miller was one of the most improved hitters on the team last fall, and that seemed to be the case this spring in his standout season with the bat. After hitting .229/.333/.286 in 12 games during the shortened 2020 season, Miller hit .313/.354/.601 this spring, with 16 home runs and 10 doubles. Miller’s power went almost exclusively to the pull side this spring and it came with a strikeout rate close to 20%, but more concerning than those whiffs might be a lack of walks, as he took a free pass just 15 times in 231 plate appearances—a 6.5% walk rate that was towards the bottom for SEC hitters. Another potential concern is Miller’s ability to recognize and hit breaking stuff, as scouts noted that he struggled with those pitch types this spring and almost all of his impact came against fastballs. Miller has played a number of positions at Auburn, including third base, shortstop and both corner outfield spots, but spent almost all of his time at first this spring.
