Bobby Miller: Midseason 2023
Bobby Miller is the No. 2 prospect in the Dodgers organization, and he is going to get to showcase his nasty stuff in front of his future home fans. This will not be the first time that Miller has pitched at Dodger Stadium, as he faced the Angels in Spring Training at Dodger Stadium.
And let’s just say that Miller was absolutely filthy in the three scoreless innings that he tossed against the Angels.
That success has not fully translated to Double-A this season, as Miller is currently sporting a 4.45 ERA with the Tulsa Drillers in 14 starts. However, it is his stuff that matters, and there is no denying that Miller has the stuff. The Dodgers will keep working with him, and when he is ready, he will be a difference-making arm at the MLB level.
You could make the case that Miller is a trade candidate with the other talented right-handed arms behind him, particularly Pepiot. However, there really is not a top-end trade target that makes a lot of sense for the Dodgers this deadline, so Miller should be safe from being moved.
With that being said, his big-league debut seems like it will most likely be at some point during the 2023 season. Injuries happen in baseball, particularly with the pitching staff, and there will be a moment midseason where Miller needs to come up and make a start (or a few) for the Dodgers.
That will set the table for Miller to potentially join the rotation on a full-time basis to start the 2024 season.
