Here we are taking a deeper look at one of the top left-handed pitchers in the country in High School baseball in the 2020 MLB Draft class.

He has some of the best upside for left-handed pitchers coming out of an always loaded state of Florida for high school prospects in this years MLB Draft class. 

In Miller's sophomore season on varsity in 2018 at JW Mitchell, he made only 4 appearances as a spot reliever throwing 5.2 innings having a 6.18 ERA with 14 big strike outs and holding opponents to a .143 batting average. After this season, Miller was selected to the Prep Baseball Report Futures Games to represent team Florida in an invite only event for the best uncommitted sophomores and freshman in the country for college coaches to get their eyes on. 

In his junior season on varsity in 2019, Miller made 7 appearances going 2-1 with one save in 16.1 innings of work with a 2.14 ERA, 30 strikeouts and holding opponents to a .115 batting average. This led to him having a unbelievable summer season with the Top Tier Roos where he proceeded to throw a no-hit shut out in the WWBA Perfect Game event in Atlanta, GA striking out 12 hitters in 6 innings of work. This summer playing for Top Tier Roos helped him make the 2019 PG Pre-Season All-American Team. 

With all the accolades Mason was starting to rack up in that summer with the Top Tier Roos, led him to commit to Florida Gulf Coast University. Miller was then asked by numerous Pro Scout teams to play for them in the Fall of 2019 in some premier events. Miller pitched in the PBR ProCase, the East Coast Pro, the Prospect World Series, the Diamond Club, States Play and the WWBA in Jupiter for the Yankees Scout teams and the Blue Jays Scout teams respectively. 

This year his 2020 senior season Miller was 2-0 in 3 appearances throwing 10.1 innings with a 2.03 ERA with 21 strikeouts and held opponents to a .147 batting average before the COVID-19 pandemic ended the season. In his career at JW Mitchell High School he had a 4-1 record with a 2.81 ERA in 32.1 innings pitched with a staggering 65 strikeouts and held opponents to a .131 batting average. Miller also hit .352 for his career in 41 games with 4 homers, a triple, 6 doubles and 33 RBI's.

Prep Baseball Report has Miller ranked as the 21st best pitcher in the country in the 2020 class and have him ranked the 193rd overall best player in the country.

His fastball range is 88-93 mph, his curveball is 73-76 mph, his slider is 68-72 mph and his change-up is 82-85 mph. Miller's ceiling is extremely high as he produces really good spin rates on his breaking ball at 2900 to 3200 rpm in the East Coast Pro Showcase.
