With the regular season coming to a close, now it’s time to look ahead to the postseason for the Dodgers. While we don’t know who exactly LA will be playing, we do know who will be taking the mound in games one and two.
Manager Dave Roberts announced that veteran pitcher Clayton Kershaw would get the ball in game one, and that rookie sensation Bobby Miller would take the mound in game two. For Miller to be starting a playoff game in his rookie season, it’s an incredible opportunity for the young pitcher, but one he has earned.
As he gets ready for his first career playoff game, Miller gave his thoughts about the upcoming game, and that he is feeling very confident heading into the postseason.
“I feel like I’m very ready for the postseason. I’m super excited for it. I’ve learned a lot this year and really thankful to be a part of this team.”Per Bobby Miller via SNLA
Miller finished his rookie season with an ERA of 3.76 and a WHIP of 1.10. He appeared in 22 games, striking out 119 in 124.1 innings of work.
Miller says that he isn’t going to change how he approaches games, just because it’s the postseason. He keeps an even keel at all times and includes in his playoff preparation.
“Same approach every time. Just be myself, keep on mixing it up. Just depends on the hitters I’m facing and I’ll game plan from there.”Per Bobby Miller via SNLA
He has the look of a future ace for the Dodgers, and it’s going to be fun to watch what he can do in the postseason. This is when he makes his legacy known and can write his name into the history books for LA.
