10/16/2019 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic
Miles continues to show as a prospect on the diamond. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.22 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft / sure and he sticks balls in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to widen body and work to get down sooner. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a team player, coachable, and plays the game hard.

In the OF, Miles has active feet, he reads the ball well off the bat, and he fields in a low position. He takes good routes to the ball, makes plays consistently, and throws with momentum from a loose arm action to his target.
