Jacob Miller, RHP

The Miami Marlins 2nd round pick Jacob Miller was drafted out of high school, playing for Liberty Union High School in Ohio. Last year Miller started four games in the minor leagues, three of which were for rookie ball. Miller had a rough start to rookie ball, which is understandable, and pitched 3.2 innings and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits, including one home run. His final start of the year came in Jupiter where he went 5.2 innings, giving up 5 hits and 3 earned runs while striking out 6 batters.

This year for low A Jupiter, Miller has 9 total starts with a total of 40.2 innings pitched. His ERA sits at 4.65 with a WHIP of 1.156 while averaging 7.1 strikeouts per 9 innings. Overall he seems to be pitching well, giving up only 2 home runs this year, but his control could improve as he is averaging 4.1 walks per 9 innings.
