The Dodgers have signed their first-round pick, RHP Bobby Miller, to a deal that includes a $2.2 million signing bonus.
Miller was the 29th overall pick in this month's amateur draft. The slot value for that selection was $2.4 million, which means the Dodgers can allocate a bit of that money to the rest of their draft picks. Miller, a Louisville product, will begin his career as a starting pitcher. Spotty command could ultimately force him to the bullpen, however.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have selected Louisville RHP Bobby Miller with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.
Miller has a violent delivery and mainly relies on two pitches, a fastball and a slider, so many think that he'll wind up as a reliever. Developing a changeup as his third pitch will determine whether or not he can make it as a starter. His calling card is the velocity of his four-seam fastball.
