Cubs fans didn’t a long look at outfielder Ian Miller, but they sure liked what they saw. Miller electrified camp with a spring training-high eight steals and displayed a little gap power to go with his speed. He was exactly the kind of difference-maker the Cubs typically seek out each September, but expanded rosters could mean he’s got a bigger role to play.
Miller joined The Rant to discuss his full-throttle style of play and how he ended up in Chicago after several years in the Mariners organization and a cup of coffee with the Twins. He also showed off his tattoos and explained how his unrelenting intensity resulted in an invitation to leave his local Little League program.
And if there was any doubt this guy was meant to be a Chicago Cub, he spells his name backwards.
