Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Brian Miller was drafted by the Miami Marlins with the 36th pick of the 2017 amateur draft, in the Competitive Balance Round A. He had spent the previous three seasons with the University of North Carolina where he had hit .345 and .343 in his last two seasons.

He started his professional career in 2017 with the Greensboro Grasshoppers of the South Atlantic League where he hit .322/.384/.416 in 57 games. He continued to hit very well when he started the 2018 season in the Florida State League with the Jupiter Hammerheads, to the tune of a .324 batting average in 62 games. He was a mid-season Al-Star in the FSL. That earned him a promotion to AA and the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. He cooled down a bit but still hit .267 in 66 games, good for a combined line of .295/.338/.355 with 57 runs and 40 stolen bases in 128 games. In 2019, he was back for a full season with Jacksonville, where he hit .265/.326/.354. He scored 52 runs, hit 24 doubles and stole 22 bases, getting caught 9 times. He was again a mid-season All-Star, and at the end of the year was named a Marlins organizational All-Star for the second straight year.

He made his major league debut with the Marlins on July 30, 2021, following a busy trading deadline that had seen Miami trade away two starting outfielders in Starling Marte and Adam Duvall. He was starting in left field against the New York Yankees while in right field was Bryan De La Cruz who was also making his debut after having been acquired in a trade with the Houston Astros the previous day.
