Baylor junior Aaron Miller will likely be swapping the green and gold for the blue and white later this year, as the 2009 All-Big 12 and Academic All-America selection was a first-round pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers in this year’s Major League Baseball draft.
Miller was the 36th overall pick, selected in the supplemental first round with the Dodgers’ first pick of the day. He is the 10th first-round pick in Baylor history; six of those have come in the last 12 years. The Channelview, Texas, native saw more action as a hitter than as a pitcher at Baylor, but will be developed as a pitcher by the Dodgers — a move Miller says he is fine with. The lefty compiled a 4-4 record with 73 strikeouts in 56 innings as a pitcher for the Bears.
Sic ’em, Aaron Miller and Baylor baseball!
