Dodgers News: Bobby Miller Wants to Make Postseason Start for LA This Year

Trade season picks up its slack around this time of the year, and with the deadline approaching fast, there are no players safe from wearing a new uniform.

We are expecting the Dodgers to pick up at least one pitcher in the upcoming days, and that could mean both rookies and veterans could be on the trade block.

If you take a look at LA’s current starting rotation, it’s filled with youngsters like Emmett Sheehan, Michael Grove, and Bobby Miller.

That can be a lot of pressure for some younger players, and with all the speculation on the internet pouring around, it’s kind of hard to avoid it. Miller spoke with reporters including Bill Plunkett of the OC Register recently about how he avoids the noise.

“I don’t really listen to what outside people have to say…Each year I’ve been paying less attention to that. Turning off notifications on social media. Stay off it more than normal. Just use it for the right reasons.”

For Dodgers rookie pitcher Bobby Miller, Twitter fingers are nothing to him as he’s set his eyes past the August 1st trade deadline.

Miller is working hard, as he is aiming for a postseason start for the Dodgers this year.

“That’s my dream,” Miller said. “I’ve got to keep working harder to be able to do that. I think out of the second half I’m going in the right direction. I’m focusing on being better than I was the first half.”

If he’s deemed safe from a trade, his chances of starting a postseason game for the Dodgers will grow.

Miller shared a similar sentiment with Dodgers Nation’s Doug McKain this spring, expressing his desire to pitch in not only a postseason game but a World Series game. The rookie’s last two starts have solidified his spot in the starting rotation, so it’s just up to the rest of the team to help him make his dreams come through.
