The Minor League Baseball season is set to kick off this week. As the talk continues to spread about the future crop of players for the Chicago Cubs, there is one guy who isn’t too well known quite yet however it is only a matter of time before that changes.

While credence can be given to Theo Epstein and the top-notch job he has done each year with the MLB Amateur Player Draft,  the 2016 draft class for the Cubs is one which stands out, despite a relatively mediocre list of names. To clarify, there is not a single name of this class which catches fans’ eyes, like that of the 2013 class, for instance, which brought in Kris Bryant.

Nonetheless, the Cubs still have many new faces who they hope one day soon can help shape the franchise as the next big-time group of players to make an impact. One such player is Tyson Miller, a right-handed starting pitcher out of California Baptist University.

Currently, Miller ranks as the clubs No.19 overall prospect and brought it last season. As someone who is still relatively unknown to a high percentage of Cubs fans, Miller is looking to build on the success of last season to keep pushing forward.
