Podcast: Q&A With San Francisco Giants Prospect, Jalen Miller
By Daniel Sperry
The San Francisco Giants are notably getting a lot better performances out of some of their prospects in 2018. Jalen Miller is one of them. We sat down and had a Q&A with the bright young man.
Jalen Miller was the San Francisco Giants 3rd round draft pick in 2015. A high-schooler at the time, Miller took some time to find his right big league approach. That has now paid off as he’s enjoyed a fantastic start to his 2018 campaign. He is currently with the San jose Giants in the High-A level.
Within the first weeks of the season, he and teammate, Gio Brusa combined to hit a cycle each, one of the first times in minor league history it’s been done. In the interview he discusses what it’s like to hit for a cycle, when he realized he needed his final hit, and what it’s like to know that the scorecard is in Cooperstown now.
We also discussed his improved approach and mentality at the plate and how it’s manifested into success this year.
One of the best talking points is for sure he and his teammate’s Fortnite habits. He lays out his squad, how often he and his squad play, and how many wins a night they’re cranking out.

I will have to say that Jalen Miller is definitely one of my favorite prospect interviews. The young man has a bright future ahead of him if he keeps the mindset he has right now. He enjoys every second of what he does, doesn’t take it for granted, and brings a positive outlook on a lot of things. He’s easily been one of the best professional athletes I’ve interviewed, and to me, that says a lot about the maturity of the young man. We should look forward to his continued success, and hopefully we’ll see him at the big league level someday!
