Miller has ace potential, but as he showed last year when he missed a good chunk of the season, he isn't a sure-thing prospect.

I like Week's upside over Miller. Rios isn't as clear...depends on the kinds of arms you have and the look of your league, choices you could make much more efficiently than anyone around here.

Weeks

Rios
Miller



Miller has ace stuff for sure, he just has to put it all together. In a keeper though, you have to go with Weeks easily over the other 2.

Adam Miller missed a huge chunk of time last year but, his stuff is that of a future "ace". His fastball is now between 92-98. He has a plus slider and a very good curveball. This year he has gotten his stuff back and his slider is back to were it was. He's rebounded nicely. Someone on here reported to me that he had to have surgery last year. According to BA Prospect Handbook 2006 (which I must add is a very good book) he never had to have surgery he just missed time. He's deffinatly a top 5 pitching prospect in my book. I took a chance on him and Cole Hamels in my dynasty league so far the gamble on Hamels is paying off I hope the same from Miller.

Keeper League I'd rank them Rickie Weeks (although a possible position move would change my opinion slightly), Adam Miller, and then Alex Rios. I am just not sold that the Rios from the first half of the year is the real Alex Rios.

Right now I think Miller is probably the 3rd or 4th best pitching prospect in the game. But his arm troubles are what derailed him from the elite prospects a few years ago. I think Rios and Weeks are much safer.
