Owen Miller

12

I love how today's Daily Report slips this gem in 🙂

Shortstop Owen Miller had four hits to raise his average to .373

Yep....a little "ho hum" if you ask me.

This kid has done nothing but hit.

Do we assume he starts in LE next season?

 

We have so many middle infielders that I could see them trying to move Miller to 3B.  Arias pretty much has SS on lockdown (I'd assume)

Might see Miller at all three slots in LE next season. As I recall his main draft point was his advanced college bat and the thought was that he would move off SS. 2B was the thought but don't see why 3B is also not an option (not much power but if his bat plays that still works).

Given Arias' finishing flourish in FW ... likely he is the #1 SS in LE next season.

Pretty sure Owen played 3B last night.

Moving this from the "2018 Playoffs" thread ...

Owen Miller playing SS for San Antonio ... interesting!

... to which Commie sez ...

Maybe a signal that he is the AA SS next year with Arias at LE?

If Miller is in San Antonio next year, Arias  in LE, and I'm guessing Guerra in San Diego, will Tatis be recovered in time to start in El Paso? If not, how do the cards fall?

Stop gap AAAA player to bridge the gap?

Or do they throw Miller in at the deep end and see how he fares in AAA until Fernando is ready?

Tatis is expected to play winter league.

MadFriars’ Interview with Baseball America’s Kyle Glaser

Biggest sleeper in the system and maybe a really deep one.

Kyle Glaser: I’m not sure Owen Miller is a sleeper, but I think he will have a better big league career than some of the more high profile international signings. He can flat out hit and he’s moving fast.
