Miller intrigued at McHenry (Ill.) High with a 93-94 mph fastball and a frame that indicated more in the tank. He turned down the Orioles as a 38th-round pick and made his way to Louisville, where he began to actualize that potential. Now standing 6-foot-5, 220 pounds, Miller's fastball is a power offering that reaches the upper-90s consistently with heavy, sinking life. He pairs that pitch with a hard slider in the upper 80s that can touch 90 mph and flashes plus potential. Miller also has a mid-80s changeup that is a solid offering and a fringy but usable curveball. While Miller has size and explosive stuff, there are still questions about his long-term role. He became a full-time starter for the first time in 2020, though he did log plenty of innings in hybrid roles in 2018 and 2019, and some scouts wonder what his dominant swing and miss offering will be. There’s some reliever risk because his delivery and arm action aren’t the smoothest or cleanest, although he holds his stuff deep into outings and improved his strike-throwing this season. Miller was trending in the right direction with a 2.31 ERA in four starts before the season shut down. His intimidating size and loud stuff fit somewhere at the back of the first or early second round.
