Then & Now: Louisville’s Bobby Miller


We continue our Then & Now series with a look at some of the top prospects for this summer’s MLB Draft. What did they look like before heading off to college and developing into premier prospects? Last week we looked at NC State’s Patrick Bailey and earlier this week, Minnesota’s electric righty Max Meyer.

Today we head to the Bluegrass State for Louisville’s Bobby Miller.

THEN 2015
: Miller sat 87-88 from the windup touching 90 mph from a long, loose, 3/4 arm slot with heavy arm side run on fastball and late action. Tall/fall delivery, smooth rhythm throughout, up to balance point, lands in line with home plate, slight recoil at finish. Fastball sat 86-88 mph from the stretch. 68-72 mph breaking ball had 10/4 slurvy shape and some late action, thrown for strikes. Down the road due to arm angle could have a lethal sinker/slider combination. Also showed feel for 76-78 mph changeup thrown aggressively with same heavy finish as fastball. Miller is committed to Louisville and shows legitimate two-way potential, although his ceiling on the mound may be higher thanks to his potential for two plus pitches.
