One of the most exciting things about watching baseball, or any sport, is seeing young players make their mark on the big stage.
Watching a player rise through the ranks and achieve success at the highest level is one of the things that keeps the game exciting for fans – especially if that player is on your favorite team.
1. Brad Miller, SS, Mariners
Having signed Robinson Cano to man 2B, Miller will probably spend 2014 (and years to come) playing in the shadow of his superstar double-play partner.
However, Miller has considerable skills in his own right. With an aggressive approach from the left side of the plate and good speed on the bases, Miller offers leadoff hitter potential to go with a solid glove in the field.
Bradley Austin Miller, born October 18, 1989 played college baseball for the Clemson Tigers, as an amateur, and it was pretty clear that he’s going to be a great player.
He also won the Brooks Wallace Award as the top shortstop in college baseball.
Miller was drafted by the Mariners in the second round (62nd overall) of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft, and made his MLB debut on June 28, 2013.
He hit his first grand slam in the game against the Oakland As hitting 2 home runs.
