The A's drafted Pepperdine right-hander Corey Miller with their 10th pick of the First-Year Player Draft and their final selection of the day Friday.

Miller has posted a 1.75 ERA in 15 starts this season, tossing three complete games along the way to help lead Pepperdine to a Super Regional appearance. He's walked just 29 batters in 113 innings.
