    The MLB Draft began on Wednesday night, with the Dodgers having the 29th selection in the Draft. With that selection, the Dodgers picked Bobby Miller a hard-throwing right-hander from the University of Louisville. Bobby Miller has a mid to high 90’s fastball with late life and in short bursts, he can touch 99 to 100 MPH. His secondary pitches need some work but his slider has shown real plus potential. He also throws a changeup/splitter combo like Tony Gonsolin just not as effective yet. Miller has a bit of a weird delivery but I’ve seen scouts say the Dodgers will clean that up immediately and he’d be a top 100 prospect as early as next year, Also have seen that because in short bursts he can touch 100 with that slider combo he could be an option in the bullpen as earlier as this season before going back to the minors to focus on Starting. A Minor League writer gave Bobby Miller the MLB comparison of Chris Carpenter the former St.Louis Cardinals pitcher who had great years in St Louis as well as winning the World Series. He has the upside of a number 2 starter and the floor of a future high-end reliever. Bobby Miller stated his favorite pitcher his Walker Buehler and you can definitely see that fire in Bobby when he pitches. It’s going to be fun to see what the Dodgers player development does with him to get this full potential. All in all a very solid high upside pick for the Dodgers in the late First Round.
