In the 1961 MLB Expansion Draft held on October 10, 1961, the New York Mets picked Miller as one of three players they selected from the Cardinals, joining catcher Chris Cannizzaro and outfielder Jim Hickman. Miller was one of four players selected by the team from a premium pool of players at the top $125,000 draft price. One of two pitchers on the team's inaugural squad sharing the name Bob Miller, Mets manager Casey Stengel would call this Bob Miller by the name "Nelson", either out of confusion or in order to distinguish him from Bob G. Miller.

Paul Krichell, the former Brownie catcher and proprietor of a cafe in the Bronx here, bobbed up at the Hotel McAlpin with the announcement that he was a holdout. Not exactly that, but Krichell dislikes his transfer to the Kansas City (American association) team. Like all New Yorkers, Krichell wants to be able to "make" this town a few times each season. For that reason he is making an effort to be transferred to some International league team. Krichell threatens to be a café manager 12 months of the season unless he is shifted to this section of the country.
