The Cardinals named Miller their Minor League Pitcher of the Year this week. The recently mentioned Matt Adams won their Minor League Player of the Year award.

Hopefully Miller's alcohol-related suspension this year was a one-off thing and he'll continue to make progress as he works on his consistency. One to keep an eye on, for sure.

Baseball America's No. 2 prospect in the Texas League

Age: 20. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-3. Wt.: 195. Drafted: HS—Brownwood, Texas, '09 (1).

If Trout was a cut above everyone, Miller was the clear-cut best pitching prospect in a league that had a good crop of arms. The only hiccup in his season was an alcohol-related suspension in August, but he returned after missing one start. Cardinals officials said he took responsibility for the mistake, which they consider an isolated incident.

Miller attacks hitters with a mid-90s fastball that touches 97 mph and has sinking and boring action. He relied on the fastball too much upon arrival in Double-A, and the Cardinals let him do so until hitters had some success against him, then turned him more to his secondary pitches. His mound presence is another asset.

Miller's curveball is also a potential plus pitch, while his changeup should be an effective third offering. His command is also solid but needs to get more consistent. When all of those things are working—as they were in his final start, when he allowed two hits and struck out nine in eight innings against Tulsa—Miller has all the ingredients to be a No. 1 starter.
