Scouting Report / Bio: After a monster season in 2005 with Asheville, Miller turned in an unimpressive effort in 2006, hitting just 13 homeruns across three levels.  Miller's 30-homerun power he displayed in 2005 appears to be the result of Asheville's short porch, rather than true ability.  Nonetheless, Miller made some progress in 2006, as he improved his contact rates and plate discipline while hitting .307 with an .819 OPS. Miller is capable of playing all three outfield positions and has a below-average arm.  He's a below average base-runner and has trouble reading pitchers.  Miller made some additional progress in the Arizona Fall League, hitting .322 with 4 homeruns before his season was cut short by a shoulder injury.

Future Outlook: 4th Outfielder at higher levels.
