DES MOINES — Iowa Cubs centerfielder Ian Miller spent this past offseason preparing for life after baseball. The former Minnesota Twin spent nearly the entire 2020 season at the alternate site in South Bend after signing with the Cubs as a minor league free agent.
With no minor league stats from the 2020 season, Miller was not sure he would get signed by the Cubs for this season.
Miller says he went back to work on his degree and even started giving hitting lessons as a part time job.
After a brief trip to Chicago in 2020 Miller is trying to work his way back.
The I-Cubs open a six game series tonight at Triple-A newcomer St. Paul.
