Wade Miley (oblique) is scheduled to throw a round of live batting practice on Sunday.

The veteran left-hander is making steady progress in his recovery from a strained oblique. He's not eligible to return from the disabled list until July 9, and if he continues on this path he may be ready right around that time.
Jun 16 - 2:25 PM

Wade Miley (oblique) resumed throwing Monday.

Miley suffered a right oblique strain on May 8 and was promptly placed on the 60-day disabled list. He's starting to make some progress, but he's not eligible to return until July.
May 28 - 12:29 PM

Brewers transferred LHP Wade Miley to the 60-day disabled list.

Miley is on the shelf with a strained oblique and expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. He pitched well over his first two starts with the Brewers, posting a 1.42 ERA. This was done as a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Alec Asher who joined the Brewers on Saturday.
May 12 - 3:36 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell expects Wade Miley (oblique) to miss 6-8 weeks.

Miley was originally expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a strained oblique but Counsell admitted on Thursday that 6-8 weeks is probably a more realistic timeline. The left-hander holds a 1.42 ERA in two big league starts this season.
May 10 - 7:17 PM

Wade Miley was told that he will likely miss 4-to-6 weeks with his right oblique strain.

That puts the left-hander back with Milwaukee at some point in the middle of June or possibly the beginning of July. The veteran southpaw was pitching well before the injury, posting a 1.42 ERA before being removed with the injury.
May 9 - 4:36 PM

Brewers placed LHP Wade Miley on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Miley suffered the injury in the first inning of his start Tuesday night against the Indians and figures to miss around 3-4 weeks. The 31-year-old left-hander has a strong 1.42 ERA in 6 1/3 innings (two starts) this season with the Brewers. Once he's healthy, he should move right back into the Milwaukee rotation.
May 9 - 10:51 AM

Wade Miley has been diagnosed with a right oblique strain.

Miley suffered the injury in the first inning of his start Tuesday night against the Indians. He is probably going to be placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday and could miss up to four weeks. The 31-year-old left-hander holds a 1.42 ERA in 6 1/3 innings (two starts) this season with Milwaukee.
May 8 - 8:24 PM

Wade Miley left his start Tuesday night against the Indians with an apparent injury.

Miley faced four batters in the top of the first inning before walking off the mound in pain, holding his right side. There should be an update soon from Miller Park. Miley worked six innings of one-run ball in his Brewers debut last Wednesday against the Reds.
May 8 - 7:52 PM

Wade Miley allowed one run on three hits in six innings to earn a win over the Reds on Wednesday.

The journeyman left-hander was making his first start of the season and made a great impression on his new team. He struck out four batters, walked three and yielded just three knocks in the gem outing. The only run he allowed came on a Devin Mesoraco RBI-double in the fourth inning. Miley was a non-roster invitee to Brewers spring training and spent the first month of the regular season rehabbing a groin injury. Last year he turned in an 8-15 record and 5.61 ERA in 32 starts with the Orioles.
May 2 - 10:30 PM

Brewers purchased the contract of LHP Wade Miley from Double-A Biloxi.

Miley will join the Brewers' starting rotation on Wednesday in Cincinnati. He posted nice numbers this spring and was dominant in his one start last week at Double-A Biloxi, so there might be some NL-only or mixed-league streaming appeal here. But it should be noted that the 31-year-old southpaw holds a 5.48 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over his last 323 1/3 major league innings.
May 1 - 10:59 PM

Wade Miley will start for the Brewers on Wednesday in Cincinnati.

The Brewers had to call Miley up or he would have opted out of his minor league contract. Having him replace Brent Suter -- who will be moved to the bullpen -- is the path of least resistance here. Miley has pitched well in the minors this year but holds a 5.48 ERA over 62 starts across the last two seasons in the majors.
Apr 29 - 12:16 PM

The Brewers must decide by May 1 whether to call up or release Wade Miley.

Miley is over his groin injury and struck out 11 over six scoreless innings for Double-A Biloxi last Friday. The Brewers seem likely to promote Miley in order to protect some rotation depth, although it's possible they could stick him in the bullpen. Junior Guerra has been excellent since joining the rotation and will probably stick, leaving Brent Suter (5.34 ERA) the most vulnerable among the starters and Brandon Woodruff on the chopping block among relievers.
Apr 29 - 11:03 AM

Wade Miley (groin) threw 37 pitches in a minor league rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

Miley allowed two unearned runs on four hits. He struck out two and walked none. The 31-year-old left-hander figures to be stretched beyond 60 pitches in his next minor league rehab outing, and's Adam McCalvy writes that the 31-year-old left-hander will likely be called up as soon as he's healthy. Miley could in the Brewers' rotation by the first week of May.
Apr 18 - 12:36 PM

Wade Miley (groin) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

Miley was making a serious case for a rotation spot before suffering a mild tear of his left groin near the end of spring training. He's expected to make about 2-3 starts in the minors before being reevaluated.
