Dodgers released former top prospect


According to Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News, the Dodgers released lefty Greg Miller today. Jackson says the Dodgers may still re-sign him to a minor league deal.


Miller, 24, was drafted 31st overall by the Dodgers in 2002. He tossed 53.6 relief innings last year, walking 63. Miller's Baseball America Top 100 Prospect List rankings: 8th in 2004 and 100th in 2005. He was derailed by two shoulder surgeries.


I didn't know where to put it, so I thought I put here in minor league section. I remember Greg Miller along with Joel Guzman and Edwin Jackson was going to be THE guys for the Dodgers return to greatness, These three former top prospects remind me of the Mets trio of the 90s, (Isringhausen, Pulsipher and Wilson) in that there were extremely hyped, but ultimately never lived to their potential. Isringhausen was productive as a closer, but memory serves he was supposed to be an ace caliber starter.


So I take the Cubs don't hold the patent for disappointing former top prospects.
