Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Doesn’t Plan on Pitching Bobby Miller This Spring

Adding the massive load of young talent the Los Angeles Dodgers have been farming and developing over the years, fans have been hoping to see more of Bobby Miller. He was the top pitching prospect for LA and had his moments in the minor leagues. Overall, in Triple-A, he posted a 3.38 ERA in the four games he suited up, much better than the 4.45 ERA in 20 Double-A matches.

Miller has been ready for an opportunity to hit the field with the rest of the Boys in Blue but team manager Dave Roberts confirmed to media, provided by Jack Harris of the LA Times, that the 23-year-old will likely not pitch in Spring Training games and will only continue to workout with the team. He wants to bring Miller along slowly and not impose too big of a workload on the young prospect.

Dodgers fans should definitely continue to be patient with the coaching staff’s plan for Miller, despite his potential. They have a ton of young pitchers that they are also trying to develop with Ryan Pepiot, Michael Grove, and Gavin Stone just to name a few. LA has always been known as a team that turns out excellent players on the mound and with this group, they have all they need to build on to that reputation.

All signs point to Miller going back to the minors after Spring Training concludes but being around the main guys for all this time should prove beneficial to him. As long as he stays ready when his number is called, he’ll have a shot at claiming a major league spot soon.

  1. One more reason the Dodgers should NOT have renewed Robert’s contract! He just wants older veterans so he doesn’t have to “coach”. Pathetic!


  2. This is stupid. What baby him. It’s not like he is 19. I watched a game when Clemens was 23 and throw like 130 pitches in his 20 strikeout game. It’s so wimpy. He was the same ago as Miller. He should be given a chance to make it this year. I hate it!!!
