This evening, the Dodgers selected RHP Bobby Miller with the 29th pick to close out the first round of the MLB Draft. A dream come true for a guy who came into the short 2020 season more disciplined than ever before.
With only four starts this season, Bobby finished 2-0 striking out 34 batters over 23.1 innings. He had a career best 12 strikeouts at Valparaiso and a 2.31 ERA for the season, impressing the scouts with pitches touching 100mph. All of this coming after earning Freshman All-American honors in 2018, as well as earning a spot on the ACC All-Freshman Team. A more difficult 2019 led him to reaching a new level of hard work during the offseason. This allowed him to refocus and work his way into a first round pick. The Dodgers have certainly gained one of the most motivated players available this season. Good luck in L.A. Bobby!
