At 6-foot-7 and 210 pounds, Miller has an ideal frame with a clean delivery and easy arm action. His fastball registers consistently in the 93-95 mph range and can touch the upper 90s. Miller also has a major league offering with a mid-80s slider with a sharp bite.
He has everything going for him: Blazing fastball that sits at 94 mph and can touch the high 90s, and a ridiculous slider that appears to start behind a left-handed hitter’s knees before it breaks out over the plate. I’ve seen a few that actually end up on the outside corner that are still clocked in the mid-80s. That’s the definition of ‘nasty’.
