Watched a few innings of Shelby Miller in Mineral Wells Saturday afternoon. He throws hard. His FB just overpowered the HS kids. Never saw a gun reading despite lots of scouts and radar guns there. He seldom threw below thigh high tho - kept the ball up mostly. The eye-high strike-out FB worked a few times. He threw a few curves. Sharp break but I don't recall any of them threatening the strike zone. A hanging change-up was tattooed on a line straight at the CF'er once. The next pitch was EXACTLY the same resulting in a fisted ducksnort over the SS's head for a hit. Next, he hit a kid in the middle of the back, but luckily it wasn't a FB. He threw a few pitches that just screamed MLB-quality ... you can see why he's a desired commodity. But not overwhelmed by his command - control is pretty solid tho. He got jobbed on a beautiful knee-high FB for ball 4 once - stupid ump. Miller questioned the call some but didn't obsess about it - good poise there. His delivery seemed very simple and repeatable to me. His warm-up pitches were impressive because he can probably throw casual FB's in the high 80's all day long - effortless gas. The heat coupled with some baserunning and a long inning seemed to tire him some midway thru the game - he allowed a run just after this impression crossed my mind. I read tonight that Brownwood won 3-1 with Miller hitting a decisive 2-run HR after I left. I don't know how long he pitched - if he went 9 then the kid's got some nice reserve tanks on him. Slideshow I got lots of pics, so if someone wants a different angle or delivery point let me know. He seems to have a very nice raw set of tools. Not a bad guy to draft at all - but overall I doubt he's a quick comer or anything.
