Once upon a time Indians right-hander Adam Miller was an elite pitching prospect, ranking as high as 16th on Baseball America‘s annual list in 2005 and cracking BA‘s top 100 in five different years.
Unfortunately he’s missed all of the past two seasons while undergoing four different surgeries on his right middle finger and Miller is now simply trying to get back on the Indians’ radar at age 26, with MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince writing that he was clocked as high as 94 miles per hour in a recent instructional league appearance.
If he can avoid another setback Castrovince speculates that Miller will be invited to the Indians’ big league camp in spring training and could even claim a spot on the Opening Day roster. He last pitched at Double-A in 2008, but the former first-round pick posted excellent numbers prior to the finger problems derailing his career and is definitely someone to root for.
