With the 36th overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, the Minnesota Twins have selected Noah Miller, a shortstop out of Ozaukee High School, Wisconsin.

Miller is a switch hitter has a solid arm and great instincts on the field. His accuracy is impressive of a prep shortstop, and he has the necessary agility and footwork to move around the infield. His speed is top tier, and he recorded a 6.94 60 yard dash time. While he does bat from both sides of the plate, he notably has more power on the right side, but can place the ball all across the field batting either.

Overall, Miller has a solid batting set up, consistency, and a good base for his shortstop skills to grow on. He currently stands at an even 6-feet, so given some time and training he can fill out his frame in the future and product even more power in the batter’s box. He’ll have an infinite amount of help from his brother, Owen, who currently plays for Cleveland. All and all, Miller is an exciting player with the potential to become elite given the right tools and growth.
