This great looking card of Cardinals pitching prospect Shelby Miller has been climbing the most watched charts the last few days. The desirable 2010 Bowman Chrome Red Refractor Autographs are serial numbered #/5 which will make the bidding hot and heavy toward the close of auction.
I'm a SF Giants fan, and although I've heard of Miller I had to go check out the stats to get a better idea what he brings to the table. When I look at young pitchers stats (Miller was born in 1990) I look at Strikeouts/Walks to Innings Pitched. The story checks out great for Miller who in his first full season in the minors had 140 SO in 104.1 IP with just 33 walks. What that tells me is he misses bats at a very high rate, even for the low levels of the minor leagues. Miller was a 1st round pick, #19, in 2009 by the Cardinals so he did nothing but help his stock going forward although it might be a couple years before he reaches the MLB even if he continues to light it up.
