Although the Dodgers lost key pitcher Tyler Anderson, they acquired Noah Syndergaard and can expect No. 2 LA prospect Bobby Miller to perform on the mound this year.
The 29th overall pick after being drafted by the Dodgers in 2020, he continued to dominate as he spent the next two years in the minor league system.
In his most recent season, he split time between Double-A and Triple-A, posting a 4.25 cumulative ERA and a 7-7 record. He also struck out 145 different batsmen in 112.2 innings and all year he gave up only 59 runs.
In a recent article, an MLB writer shared that Bobby Miller is someone everyone should be watching this upcoming season.
“The Dodgers relied on Miller, who posted a 4.25 ERA, a .222 opposition average, and a 145/37 K/BB ratio in 112 1/3 innings, and made up for some of the lost innings with free agents Tyler Anderson and Andrews.

Miller is the MLB’s 26th-best prospect and is likely to get his first major league start this coming season, just like Ryan Pepiot got last year.
Selected 102nd overall in the 2019 draft, Pepiot started nine games and appeared in seven. He had three wins with a 3.47 ERA in 36.1 innings.
The Dodgers have already proven they’ll be in the youth movement for the upcoming season, so there’s little chance they’ll sign more rookies. It means they are most likely to post a rotation of Yulias, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May and Syndergaard, and get a few young players like Miller and Peppiot.
