2021 Fantasy Outlook
Miller was one of six Padres shipped to Cleveland in the Mike Clevinger trade last August. The infielder wasn't the most hyped of San Diego's prospects who swapped jerseys but is viewed as a solid piece with legitimate big-league potential. After batting .336 in his first season of pro ball, Miller spent most of 2019 with Double-A Amarillo, for whom he slashed .290/.355/.430 over 560 plate appearances. He doesn't wow with power but slugged 13 long balls for the Sod Poodles and has enough pop to hit double-digit homers in the big leagues. In addition, Miller has posted a mid-80s contact rate as a minor-leaguer while striking out less than 15% of the time. Had Cleveland not received two shortstops back in the Francisco Lindor trade, Miller could have threatened for an Opening Day roster spot. He's likely to begin 2021 at Triple-A instead but should make his big-league debut at some point in the campaign. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The timing of the transaction ends Miller's season, as there are just three days remaining on the schedule. Miller will close his rookie campaign having hit .204/.243/.309 across 60 games. James Karinchak was called up to take his place on the roster.
