Ian Miller
27-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Chicago Cubs AAA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Miller was called up by the Twins in September to add depth to the outfield and add speed as a pinch runner. He hit just .176 in 12 games and mostly served as insurance for an injured outfield in September. While he hit just .264 with a .777 OPS between two clubs at Triple-A, he had 35 steals on 42 attempts. The Cubs signed him to a minor-league deal this offseason, so he could reprise his September role as a pinch runner and defensive replacement. His speed is tantalizing, but it's hard to envision how he would play enough to move the needle in most fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

December 18, 2019
Miller signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Miller was shipped from the Mariners to the Twins in August and ended up appearing in 12 major-league games, but he went 3-for-17 with two runs scored and a double in 17 plate appearances. The 27-year-old has a .704 OPS in 276 games at Triple-A, so he'll likely just provide organizational outfield depth for Chicago.
