Scouting Report

Scouting Grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 20 | Run: 70 | Arm: 50 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Miller amounted to little offensively during his first four pro seasons before revamping his swing and breaking out in 2017, when he was named as the organization's Ken Griffey Jr. Minor League Hitter of the Year. Opening the season back in the Double-A Texas League, Miller batted .326 to claim a share of the circuit's batting title while also ranking second in on-base percentage (.382) and stolen bases (30). While he didn't fare as well during his first Triple-A exposure after a July promotion, it didn't detract from a career-best year that saw Miller slash .307/.355/.393 with 43 steals and 85 runs across two levels.

Miller's speed is his carrying tool, receiving plus-plus grades from scouts, and he's long showed that he knows how to use it on the basepaths. Since the start of the 2015 season, he's posted annual stolen-base totals of 50, 49 and 43, respectively. The left-handed hitter offers little power but uses the entire field well and makes a lot of contact, though at times it can be weak or forced. He continues to draw his share of walks despite an overly aggressive approach that resulted in a career-high strikeout total (102) and rate (18.2 percent) in 2017.

Miller's wheels also aid him in the outfield, where he's an above-average defender with an average throwing arm that allows him to play all three spots. He profiles best as an extra outfielder who provides much of his value through his baserunning and defense.
