Year   Team       AB   AVG   OBP   SLG   XBH%   ISO   2B+3B   BB%   K%          
2006   Old Dominion       267   .348   .389   .494   29%   .146   23   5.9%   11.2%

Strengths:
Big things come in small packages. Miles is only 5-foot-9, but he sprays line drives around the park. He suffered a knee injury in Old Dominion’s season opener in 2007 and missed the entire season. When he returned, he added some pop. He’s hit three homers in 32 games after hitting four homers in 56 games in 2006. He’s the Monarchs’ fastest baserunner.

Weaknesses:
Miles is undersized and will have to prove himself at every level. He will be 23 before he plays his first pro game and will have to move through the minors quickly.

The Future:
Miles should be drafted in the first 20 rounds.
