The Texas A&M Aggies baseball team had a rough 2021 season. With a 9-21 record against Southeastern Conference opponents, hopes of a prosperous postseason were dashed.

The Aggies have seen plenty of players taken in the MLB Draft over the years, and despite the struggles, this year will be no different.

Starting pitcher Bryce Miller has taken the reins as the ace of the program in College Station, and he’s put up some impressive results.

The right-hander played at New Braunfels High School before starting his college baseball career at Blinn College. His time with the Aggies has taken his game to new heights and propelled his draft stock as well.

While playing at Blinn, Bryce Miller was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 38th round of the 2018 MLB Draft, but he couldn’t be dissuaded from his commitment to College Station.

He started in the Aggies’ bullpen in 2019 and was lights out. He struck out 43 batters in 28.2 IP to the tune of a 2.51 ERA. He struggled in a handful of games in 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic canceled the remainder of the NCAA college baseball season.

Despite his sterling reputation in the bullpen, former Aggies head coach Rob Childress wanted to see what Miller had as a starter. A positive COVID-19 test briefly paused his season, but the results were there.

In nearly 60 innings, Miller generated 70 strikeouts and only gave up eight home runs.

There are some things Miller can work on, such as control and command, but he held his own in the Southeastern Conference. Playing juggernauts such as Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, and Vanderbilt is never easy.

Bryce Miller won’t get the benefit of boosting his draft stock with an exceptional postseason, but he appears to be an early-round lock.

Texas A&M baseball has produced some great talent over the years, and the right-hander can be the latest success story. If he can’t handle a starter’s workload, he’ll undoubtedly make any bullpen better.
