The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to call leading pitching possibility Bobby Miller to begin Tuesday night’s video game, reports Russell Dorsey. It establishes a quite juicy match, as Miller is set to deal with the Braves with Spencer Strider on the mound on Tuesday in his MLB launching.

Miller, 24, is a 6-foot-5 righty and was the Dodgers’ first-round choose of the University of Louisville in 2020. He pitched in High-A and Double-A in 2021 prior to Double-A and Triple-A last season. 

CBS Sports possibility expert R.J. Anderson ranked Miller as baseball’s 31st-best possibility heading into the spring this year, stating the following: 

Another thing the Dodgers have actually regularly done is unearth gems late in the preliminary. Miller, the 29th choice in 2020 by method of Louisville, remains in line to be the next one. He’s all however specific to make his big-league launching at some point in 2023 after appearing 24 times throughout the upper minors last season, collecting a 4.25 age and a 3.92 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 112 innings. Miller has loud things, consisting of a triple-digits fastball and an appealing slider and changeup, and he’s taken well to a mechanical overhaul as an expert that truncated his arm stroke, to name a few modifications. Last season assisted reduce issues about his use as an expert, too: he dealt with 20 or more batters in 15 video games after he cleared that mark simply as soon as in 2021. The Dodgers have actually suffered a variety of losses to their rotation this offseason, and Miller appears as most likely as anybody to benefit next summertime from that advancement. 

In 4 starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, Miller has a 5.65 PERIOD, 1.19 WHIP and 12 strikeouts versus 6 strolls in 14 1/3 innings. Keep in mind, this remains in the infamously hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. The whole league has a 5.68 age this season, for instance. 

injuries have actually produced several holes in the Dodgers’ rotation today. Dustin May and Julio Urías were both put on the hurt list within the last couple of days. Walker Buehler is recuperating from Tommy John surgical treatment, Michael Grove has a stretched groin and Ryan Pepiot is still working back from an oblique injury. 

That leaves Clayton Kershaw, Tony Gonsolin and Noah Syndergaard in the rotation. Miller will join it, a minimum of on a short-lived basis, on Tuesday. It appears like right-hander Gavin Stone — who made his MLB launching on May 3 — will begin Monday.
