Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 210 lbs

Drafted in the 20th round (606th overall) by the Cleveland Guardians in 2021 (signed for $300,000)
Miller ranked No. 484 on the BA 500 out of high school and spent two seasons as the Friday night starter at San Diego. While many of the expected top college pitchers in the West struggled this spring, Miller was steady throughout the year and went 6-2, 2.52 with 77 strikeouts and 17 walks in 60.2 innings. Miller is a physical righthander who stands 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and has an advanced feel for pitching. His fastball sits at 90-91 and touches 94-95 mph with four-seam ride that helps it play up in the zone. Miller attacks with his fastball and effectively mixes his secondary pitches to keep batters guessing. His average changeup keeps hitters off-balance, although he’ll occasionally fall in love with it and throw it too often. His slurvy breaking ball is a fringy, but usable, third offering he can land for strikes. Miller pitches more than he overpowers hitters, but he’s consistent and effective. He does have some effort in his delivery and has had control issues in the past, so some teams believe he will ultimately end up in relief. Others see the pitchability to remain a starter and are interested in taking him on the draft’s second day.
