    Though Louisiana-Monroe was just 27-26 during the regular season, the Indians unquestionably had the best collection of arms in the state. For sheer arm strength, Miller ranks with Thomas Diamond and Jason Quarles, pitching at 92-94 mph and scraping 95-96. Undrafted last year as a junior, mainly because he wanted to complete his degree in mathematics, Miller turned down free-agent offers after pitching at the National Baseball Congress World Series. A two-pitch guy who works out of the bullpen now and will continue to do so as a pro, he backs up his fastball with an average curve. When he throws strikes and works down in the zone, he's difficult to hit.
