RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

One of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball, Miller struggled at times with Triple-A Memphis last year, but he had a nice stint with the Cardinals late in the year, including a six-inning scoreless gem on the season's last day. Miller will be given every opportunity to win a job in the rotation this season, and given his stuff, he could be at the top of that rotation within a few years. You might look at his 4.74 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with Memphis and wonder what the big deal is, but check out the 160:50 K:BB ratio in just 136.2 innings. It might already be too late to get him at a good price.

2012

St. Louis may inexplicably give the ball to Kyle Lohse every fifth day, but they have a pitcher down in Springfield that is probably better than Lohse right now. Miller, the top prospect in the St. Louis system, and arguably the top pitching prospect in all of baseball, may get a shot at making the rotation out of spring training, but he's far more likely to pitch in the minors at least for a few more months. His walk rate could use a little work, as it increased a little when he advanced last year, but everything else is already major-league ready. Buy him now before it's too late.

2011

The Cardinals are clearly being cautious about their top draft pick in 2009, but at 19 he put up a dominating 140:33 K:BB ratio in 104.1 IP for Low-A Quad Cities last year, so it won't be long before they start feeling the pressure to bring him up. A .367 BABIP contributed to his not-so-noteworthy ERA and WHIP, so his numbers could improve this year even if he doesn't. He's going to advance quickly, so pick him up in keeper formats while you still can.

2010

Miller was the Cardinals' first-round pick out of high school last year. He's big and throws very hard, but at just 19, he has a long way to go before he reaches the majors. He'll probably spend all of 2010 in Low-A, working on his command.
