After a year at Blinn (Texas) JC and two years in Texas A&M’s bullpen, Miller stepped into the Aggies rotation this year. At times, he looks like a potential mid-rotation stalwart. He held No. 1 Arkansas to one run in six innings. He dominated New Mexico State, fanning 15 in seven scoreless innings. But Miller struggles to string that dominance together for long, which explains why he finished the year 3-2, 4.45. It could be his inexperience in a starting role, but could also be more a result of issues with control and his delivery. Usually a few times each game he will completely lose a fastball, sometimes yanking it and sometimes flying open. Miller’s plus 93-94 mph fastball has real teeth. He’ll reach back for 96-97, and he can blow hitters away up in the zone. His breaking ball has morphed into two distinct pitches as he throws a bigger, slower, downward-breaking, mid-70s fringe-average curveball and a harder, tight, fringe-average slider that has modest break. His average low-80s changeup has more deception than movement, but it will flash some arm-side fade. Miller missed two starts this year because of Covid-19, but otherwise has been durable. He has more upside than most of the players who will be picked around him in the draft, but he also has work to do to improve his control.
