The Los Angeles Dodgers called up No. 2 prospect Bobby Miller mostly out of sheer necessity after injuries to both Dustin May and Walker Buehler. Miller has not disappointed, largely dominating in his first three starts this year.

His fourth came on Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies, where he yet again showed why he will be a name to remember in the big leagues.

Miller shut down the Phillies’ offense all day, but he did have to battle through some adversity, which he did flawlessly.

The Phillies loaded the bases in the bottom of the second inning. Miller proceeded to strand the runners after forcing Phillies third baseman Edmundo Sosa to ground out to end the inning.

Aside from that, it was smooth sailing for the Miller. He got through six innings of scoreless baseball, only allowing three hits while striking out seven batters.

The Dodgers offense held up their end of the bargain, putting up nine runs to cruise to a shutout victory.

Miller has had one of the more impressive starts to his career in recent memory. This latest shutout for him marks the second consecutive outing that he did not allow an earned run. It also marks 16 consecutive scoreless innings for the promising 24-year-old pitcher.

Many took to social media to share their excitement for Miller’s future.

As the Dodgers get healthier, it will certainly be interesting to see who they end up having in their rotation. Unless Miller tails off as the season progresses, he figures to be a key member of the Dodgers’ pitching staff.
