Futures Game Running Diary: Top 7

Shelby Miller on the mound for Team USA. He was 92-96mph in high school and has recently hit 98, all with a plus curve and improving changeup, and his command this year has been a pleasant surprise. He's emerging as perhaps the highest-ceiling starter in the minors. He was an all state tight end and punter in high school (Texas 3A). He is just 19. All of this is all the more impressive when you realize he has overcome his parents' name/gender confusion.
