Dodgers Ink Aaron Miller

FRIDAY, 9:00am: Adam Winkler of says Miller gets a bonus of about $900k.

THURSDAY, 9:16pm: According to a press release on the Baylor University athletics website, the Dodgers have agreed to terms with top pick Aaron Miller.

The exact financial terms are not yet available.  Miller, a left-hander, was taken 36th overall in June's first-year player draft.  He led the Big 12 with 11.47 strikeouts per nine innings this season and also hit .310 with 12 home runs and 47 RBI as the team's primary right fielder. The Dodgers plan to try him on the mound first.

Interesting side note:  Miller is the University of Baylor's highest draft selection since outfielder David Murphy (now with the Rangers) was taken 17th overall by the Red Sox in 2003.
