Dodgers Officially Sign First-Round Pick Bobby Miller

Things in baseball may be moving slowly, but that hasn’t stopped the Dodgers from getting things done. Los Angeles has made things official by signing their first-round pick. 

The Dodgers took Bobby Miller out of the University of Louisville in the first round of the 2020 draft. The hard-throwing right-hander was one of just five draft picks during a shortened draft for Los Angeles.

The deal became official today when the Dodgers signed Miller to a $2.2 million. The 29th slot was estimated to be worth $2.4 million, meaning Los Angeles saves some bonus pool money for signing other picks. 

The move is sort of all the Dodgers are able to do right now, given that there is a transaction freeze across baseball. MLB and the player’s union are still trying to figure out a way to get baseball going, but until then, we’ll have to be satisfied with draft signings. 

Miller profiles as a relief pitcher long-term, given the high effort delivery that he possesses. But at his best, Miller can be an incredibly powerful arm, touching the high 90s with triple-digit potential. He could possibly slot into the bullpen before Brusdar Graterol in the future.
