RHP Bryce Miller, Seattle Mariners

Lastly, I wanted to end with another Seattle starter, as I just think the two clubs make way too much sense to pull off a deal. Bryce Miller is another intriguing arm that St. Louis could target in talks with the Mariners.

Before the season, Miller was the Mariners' second-best prospect and boasts a great fastball-slider combo. Miller has the kind of stuff to be a great pitcher for a long time, and at just age 24, he has a lot of time left to grow.

Miller is 5-3 with a 3.97 ERA and 55 SO in 59 innings this year. While his strikeout stuff hasn't been quite the same as it was in the minors (8.4 SO/9 in MLB compared to 10.8 SO/9 in MiLB), it does indicate there is room to grow for the right-hander. Miller will likely require a similar package as Gilbert, but again, he represents a long-term answer to one of the club's biggest problems.
