Drafted in the 3rd round (84th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2018 (signed for $500,000)
College shortstops who are reliable defenders are in demand come draft day and Miller checks off those boxes, even if his below-average arm will almost assuredly force a move to second base in pro ball. Miller has good hands, above-average range and plus speed that work in the dirt and his track record of steady contact gives some comfort level that he will hit as well. Miller was hitting .387/.435/.427 as of late-May, with 20 extra-base hits and eight stolen bases. He's yet to show productive power, but he has some strength in his hands and a physical frame. That leads evaluators to believe he may bump up his well-below-average power and run into 5-to-10 home runs a year eventually.
