Tyson Miller entered the 2019 season ranked as the 19th best prospect in the Cubs organization.

The Chicago Cubs fourth round pick in the 2016 MLB Draft has come on strong this season but has moved up in the minors very slowly. After being drafted, Tyson Miller spent the remainder of the 2016 season split between short season Eugene and the Arizonal Fall League, tossing 28.2 innings with 17 strikeouts, seven walks, but allowed four home-runs.

Miller was assigned to Single-A South Bend in 2017 and was promoted to High-A Myrtle Beach for the 2018 season. He tossed over 120 innings with both squads and struck out 99 and 126 batters in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

He was assigned to Double-A Tennessee to start this season and in seven starts this season, Miller has 0.94 in 39.1 innings with 33 strikeouts and eight walks, while allowing an opponent’s batting average of just 0.152.

In his most recent start, Miller pitched 7.0 innings allowing his first home-run of the season and struck out three. Watch out for Miller to potentially get a promotion after the all-star break to Triple-A Iowa, which could potentially put him on track for the big leagues next year.
