Red Sox acquired LHP Wade Miley from the Diamondbacks for RHP Rubby De La Rosa, RHP Allen Webster and INF Raymel Flores.
The 28-year-old southpaw will join a completely revamped Red Sox rotation that has added Rick Porcello and Justin Masterson in recent days. Miley has proven to be a very durable option, averaging over 199 innings over each of the last three seasons while compiling a 3.74 ERA and 474/178 K/BB ratio. He is prone to the long ball though, having surrendered at least 20 home runs in each of the past two seasons, and the move to Fenway Park is unlikely to alleviate that problem. Dec 12 - 8:03 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the trade sending Wade Miley to the Red Sox is done.

The deal isn't official yet, as the players likely still have to take physicals, but the two sides have finally agreed on the particulars. The Diamondbacks are expected to receive Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and an unnamed minor leaguer in exchange for the left-hander. The Red Sox have remade their rotation in a hurry, adding Rick Porcello and Justin Masterson in addition to Miley.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the trade sending Wade Miley to the Red Sox will be made official by Saturday.

Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and a minor leaguer will head to Arizona in the deal. Although the two sides are still haggling over who the prospect will be, it doesn't sound like it will be anything that could make the trade fall apart. Miley, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason, held a 4.34 ERA in 33 starts this past season for the Diamondbacks.
Dec 12 - 9:37 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports the Red Sox have an agreement in place to acquire Wade Miley from the Diamondbacks.

Per Rosenthal, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa and a minor leaguer will head to Arizona in the deal. A deal between the two clubs appeared to be imminent Wednesday afternoon but suddenly fizzled, opening the door for the Marlins and Rangers to get involved in talks for the 28-year-old. Miley immediately becomes one of the best starters on the Red Sox heading into 2015.
Dec 10 - 9:55 PM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today hears the Marlins and Rangers are in active trade talks with the Diamondbacks about Wade Miley.

Both clubs were believed to be out on the left-hander earlier Wednesday as a deal between the D'backs and Red Sox appeared to be close, but those talks have since derailed. The Marlins may ramp up their pursuit after dealing Andrew Heaney in the Dee Gordon trade. It appears a trade could once again be completed before the Winter Meetings come to a close, and we'll remain on Miley Watch accordingly.
Dec 10 - 9:40 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins and Rangers are "out" on Wade Miley.

And Bob Nightengale of USA Today has reported that the Red Sox are not currently involved in negotiations for the Arizona left-hander. Multiple previous reports said Miley was on the verge of being traded, but it sounds like that has all collapsed. Talks could of course reignite for the 28-year-old starter before teams depart the Winter Meetings in San Diego.
Dec 10 - 5:31 PM

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Red Sox are not involved in trade talks for Wade Miley.

This report from Nightengale conflicts what many others are saying -- including Sean McAdam of CSN New England and Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, both of whom tweeted that Miley is close to being dealt to Boston. Nightengale says the Marlins are still in the mix to get the 28-year-old left-hander from Arizona. Things are getting nutty at the Winter Meetings.
Dec 10 - 4:50 PM

Sean McAdam of CSN New England heard from an opposing-team source that the Red Sox are close to acquiring starter Wade Miley from the Diamondbacks.

That was quick. The Red Sox lost out on Jon Lester late Tuesday night, so they turned their attention to the trade block and are now preparing a trade package that will pluck the 28-year-old Miley out of Arizona. Miley had a 4.34 ERA in 33 starts this past season for the Diamondbacks, but Chase Field plays extremely hitter-friendly. He struck out 183 batters in 201 1/3 innings.
Dec 10 - 4:01 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports hears that the Diamondbacks are close to trading left-hander Wade Miley.

The D-Backs have gotten lots of calls on Miley, with the Red Sox and Marlins among the interested teams. The 28-year-old southpaw posted a 4.34 ERA and 183/75 K/BB ratio in 201 1/3 innings this past season and could benefit by getting out of Arizona. He's arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.
Dec 10 - 3:37 PM

FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Red Sox and Marlins are in active discussions regarding a Wade Miley deal.

The chances of a Miley trade are increasing, according to Rosenthal and Jon Morosi. Miley wasn't really any good last season, but he's young, cheap and still viewed as having some upside after his fine rookie season in 2012. It still wouldn't make sense to give up all that much for him.
Dec 10 - 1:09 AM

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Marlins have discussed the possibility of trading for LHP Wade Miley.

The Marlins are in the market for a veteran starter and could potentially trade Nathan Eovaldi (4.37 ERA in 199+ innings in 2014) or another pitching prospect. Last season with the Diamondbacks, Miley was 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA and a 183/75 K/BB ratio in 201+ innings.

Wade Miley held the Cardinals to two runs over five innings Saturday in a Diamondbacks victory.

Miley wasn't overly sharp, yielding six hits and three walks, but the Cardinals struggled to take advantage of multiple scoring chances with the National League Central title on the line. Miley will finish the 2014 regular season with an 8-12 record, 4.34 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 183/75 K/BB ratio in 201 1/3 innings.
Sep 27 - 11:13 PM

Wade Miley surrendered eight hits and six runs before exiting after 4 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Miley struggled all afternoon, walking four to go along with the eight hits allowed. The six runs were the most Miley had allowed in a start since August 5 -- in fact, he hadn't given up more than three runs in a single start in that span. Miley fell to 8-12 with a 4.35 ERA with the loss, and he'll look to get back in the win column in his final start of the season Saturday against the Cardinals.
Sep 21 - 8:54 PM

Wade Miley held the Giants at bay on Monday, allowing only one run on seven hits across seven innings of a 6-2 win.

Miley struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Miley entered play 0-4 in his previous seven outings, but toting a 2.86 ERA in his last six, so he must have been pretty pleased to receive six runs of support tonight. The left-hander had a shouting match with skipper Kirk Gibson in his last start against the Dodgers, but Miley indicated he was just blowing off steam from a less-than-stellar night. No frustration tonight in improving to 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA. Miley caps a two-week start by traveling to Coors Field on Sunday.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Wade Miley made it through just two innings, allowing three runs on four walks and five hits, in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

This epic dud came out of nowhere, and comes at a most inopportune time with fantasy playoffs beginning in head-to-head formats. Miley was 0-2 with a 1.69 ERA in his last four starts, but he received a grand total of only three runs during that time. He didn't receive any support this time either -- Arizona lost 5-1 -- but Miley wouldn't have been around for a decision even if his teammates had decided to lug their lumber to the yard. The left-hander hosts San Francisco this weekend looking to get back on track.
