    A shoulder impingement in his junior year made Miller tough for scouts to see last summer and fall, and his velocity has been up and down this spring. His injury history, slight build (he's generously listed at 6-foot-3) and a delivery that has some effort raise questions about his long-term durability, but at his best he's a top-three-rounds talent. Depending on what day you see him, Miller can show an average or better fastball in the low 90s that reaches 93-94, or he can work in the 86-90 range. The pitch is straight, though, and his arm slot is inconsistent. He flashes a plus hard slider and an average change. He is aggressive and has a good feel for pitching, though he still needs to refine his command. Unless a team makes a run at him in the first three rounds, Miller figures to wind up at North Carolina, where he should be a high-impact pitcher immediately.
