Miller suddenly becomes the number one best pitching prospect in the Cardinals farm system.
After initially asking for 4 million to sign, Miller and the Cards settled in on 2.875 Million. Still a lot of money, but a lot better for the Cards than 4 mill!
Here’s a quick scouting report from the Post Dispatch’s Joe Strauss:
Miller consistently throws a 94 mile-per-hour fastball and possesses the frame, natural movement on his pitches and coachability that lead many to project him as a future ace.
We tried to track down his Facebook page, but we came up empty…well at least we think so. Here’s a sampling of our results, but we aren’t confident.
…apparently Shelby Miller is a popular name, for girls. Good thing the kid is good at sports.
We can’t wait to see how he preforms in the minors, along with a quick rise to the majors where a guy with nearly 3 million in his pocket could be lots of fun for a site like this!
