The Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly set to call up a top prospect to make his major-league debut. And it’s in a very intriguing matchup.

According to Russell Dorsey of Bally Sports and Stadium, the Dodgers are calling up Bobby Miller to be the starting pitcher on Tuesday night vs. the Atlanta Braves and second-year ace Spencer Strider.

As Dorsey notes, Miller is MLB Pipeline’s No. 19 overall prospect. FanGraphs’ recent update slots in Miller at No. 31 overall and second in the Dodgers’ system, behind only catcher Diego Cartaya (No. 20 overall).

Miller, 24, has a 5.65 ERA and 5.59 FIP over 14 1/3 innings pitched — four starts — at Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.

However, Miller is coming off easily his best performance of the season, in which he went six innings, gave up two hits, one run, one walk, and struck out six batters. He reached up to 101 mph on his fastball, and he got strikeouts on each the fastball, slider, curveball, and changeup.

The right-hander was selected by the Dodgers in the first round (29th overall) of the 2020 MLB Draft, and he’s shown why so far in the minors.

It will be fun to see Miller and Strider in a flamethrowing duel on Tuesday night. The Braves (28-17) and Dodgers (29-18) also feature the best records in the National League.
