4.24.15 - Missouri State recruit, currently ranked No. 31 in Illinois’ 2016 class. Highly athletic switch-hitting catcher, athletic feet and moves well laterally; runs the bases aggressively and with confidence. 6-foot-1, 165 pounds, thin frame, narrow shoulders. Offensively, hit exclusively from the left side in game against all right-handers. Finished 2-for-5 with a pair of run-scoring singles.

2.18.15 Committed to Missouri State.

1.19.14 - 6-foot-1, 165-pound switch hitting catcher/shortstop. Defensively showed above average arm strength from the crouch (77 mph), occasional carry, loose arm action. Posted pop times at 2.19. Displayed quick feet on the infield with a 76 mph arm across the diamond. 7.28 runner in the 60. Offensively hits from both sides of the plate, balanced setup, slightly crouched. Solid balance through contact, flatter bat path, 75 mph exit velocity from the right side, 81 mph exit velocity from the left side.

6.19.13 - The 2016 grad showed some projection at the showcase.  Millas could gain more athleticism as he matures and gets accustomed to his tall, lanky 6-foot, 145-pound frame.  Ran a 7.19 60 and showed some quick and fluid footwork behind the plate.  Threw with long arm action from a ¾ slot at 74 mph from the crouch – recording pop times between 2.08-2.22.  Millas is a switch-hitter at the plate.  Seems more natural from the left side where he has pull-gap tendencies and recorded a 78 mph exit velocity – 75 mph from the right side. 

4/13/19:Athletic, switch-hitting catcher with strong defensive abilities. Strong and trim at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds and does it all well behind the dish with a polished and professional look to his actions. With a quiet setup, he's light on his feet and has good flexibility and agility for above average blocking skills. Sure hands, caught most balls in the pocket with quickness and enough softness in his hand strength to snatch the high pitch. Framing will likely be enhanced at the mid-levels of the minor leagues with pitchers who have greater command, making it easier to catch the outer half of the ball, bringing borderline pitches into the zone. Showed above average arm strength with low effort, but didn't let it go on this look. Likely plus to better raw arm strength. On-line carry to the bag for consistently accurate throws. Has some extra length to his takeback. Hit the umpire with his draw, resulting in umpire's interference on a throw to third. Agile with sneaky speed on the basepaths. Ran a "better double-check my stopwatch" time of 4.15 down the line from the left side and showed good body control on a pop-up slide into second base.Offensively, he did not swing it well on this look. Was well out front with his right-handed swing, around the ball and hooked everything both in batting practice and the game. Left-handed swing showed a little better balance from a wide open stance. Above average bat speed in BP, but it didn't play in the game as he pulled off ball with his barrel in/out of the zone quickly. Despite struggling so far this season with the bat (.254/.357/.407) compared to last spring (.321/.416/.500), Millas is one of the most athletic college backstops and possesses strong defensive abilities with a chance to hit enough with some power for an everyday role (110-120 games/season as a catcher). He will likely be considered early during Day Two. (Seifert)

8/20/18:Athletic catcher with a strong frame. Switch-hitter with athletic actions in the box from both sides. Level swing, good barrel path. Swing had less effort, more lift from left side. Average to above average raw power from both sides. Above average arm strength. Game POP time of 2.13. Receives and blocks well, likely above average defender in the future. Below average runner down the line, but moves well for a catcher. Despite his injury history and offensive underperformance (.261/.327/.293) in the Cape this summer, Millas is a switch-hitting catcher with an above average arm and a chance to hit at the next level. He led the Bears with a .321/.416/.500 last spring and will likely anchor their lineup from the three-hole again this spring. College backstops with his resume tend to do well on draft day. Expect Millas to be highly considered on Day Two this June. (D Jurik)
