Bobby Miller, RHP Los Angeles Dodgers

It’s only been a couple of days since Bobby Miller was promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City, but Miller is quickly moving through the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. In 20 games for Double-A Tulsa this year, Miller posted a 4.45 ERA and 117 strikeouts (a 30.5-percent rate) in 91 innings pitched.

I remember watching Miller at the Futures Game earlier this season and thinking to myself, “This kid is ready for the show.”

In the past seven games, Miller has elevated his game to an entire new level and is a huge reason he was promoted to Triple-A. In his past seven games, he produced a 3.67 ERA and 1.08 WHIP while striking out 54 batters and allowing just 10 walks.

It was just announced on Wednesday that Dodgers’ ace Walker Buehler will miss the remainder of the season due to injury. Obviously, the Dodgers’ have no concerns about losing their lead in the division race, but they want to clinch the No. 1 seed for the playoffs.

As rosters will be expanding here soon, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see the 23-year-old Miller get the quick call-up to the big leagues and make their playoff roster to fill that empty pitching rotation slot.
