Randall Jai Miller is a professional baseball player from the United States of America and plays as a center fielder. Miller’s career started quite early as he was drafted at 113th overall, by the Florida Marlins, in the 2003 MLB Amateur Draft. Miller began playing with the Jamestown Jammers in the low Single-A league. Miller played 11 games in his debut season during which he batted at .233.

The following year, Miller was pushed up to the Single-A division where he played for the Greensboro Bats. In 113 games, Miller was quite stable and deserved a bump up after batting at .205 with 12 home runs. The team changed its name to Greensboro Grasshoppers in the 2005 season and in 115 appearances, he hit 13 home runs with a .207 batting average.

Natural progression took him into the Advanced A-League with the Jupiter Hammerheads in the 2006 season. Despite a .001 percent increase in his batting percentage, his home run count dropped to zero for the entire season. In 2007, Miller was promoted to the Double-A league with the Carolina Mudcats where he finally took off in his batting career. With a .261 batting average and 14 home runs, Miller showed better performance with 58 RBIs in 129 games with 26 doubles.

In 2007, the Florida Marlins decided to purchase his contract to prevent him from applying for the Rule 5 draft. Till date, he has just been part of one game for Marlins.
