After going head-to-head with Shohei Ohtani, Bobby Miller demonstrates why he is a top pitching prospect

Bobby Miller, the top pitching prospect for the Los Angeles Dodgers, met Shoehei Ohtani for the first time in the big leagues. He got him out of the game.

Opening Day for the 2022 MLB season is set for April 7th. The Los Angeles Dodgers will play the Los Angeles Angels at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night to wrap up spring training. Bobby Miller, a notable pitching prospect for the Los Angeles Dodgers, will start the game.

For the first time in the batter’s box, Miller faced off against Angels star and reigning AL MVP Shohei Ohtani for the first time. The youngster lived up to the expectations by striking out Ohtani on six pitches, the last of which was a 100.2 mph fastball.

That’s a great way to make a point. Miller did so in front of his family in the Dodger Stadium stands.

Take a look at some of Miller’s other pitches during his head-to-head duel with Ohtani.

Miller is the Dodgers’ No. 2 overall prospect and the 57th-ranked prospect in all of Major League Baseball heading into the 2022 season. After pitching at the University of Louisville, the Dodgers selected him with the 29th overall choice in the 2020 MLB Draft.

In his first season in the minors, the right-hander pitched at Single-A+ and Double-A. In 56.1 innings over 17 games (14 starts), Miller had a 2.40 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, a 2-2 win-loss record, and 70 strikeouts in 56.1 innings.

Miller pitched three innings for the Dodgers, striking out two batters and walking two others while allowing only one hit.

Dodgers fans must be ecstatic to see what Miller can do on the mound in the big leagues. It’s not easy to create a good first impression when you strike out the AL MVP.
