Wade Miley allowed three runs while striking out six over six innings of Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.
Miley walked four and gave up seven hits. His bend-but-don't break brand of pitching works against some, but it most certainly doesn't work against Clayton Kershaw. Miley has posted a 4.30 ERA, but his 1.34 WHIP and solid 163/62 K/BB ratio in 176 innings reveals a pitcher who's been a little more effective. Miley travels to San Diego on Tuesday.

Despite allowing eight hits and four walks, Wade Miley blanked the Nationals for 6 2/3 innings on Thursday.

Such a gritty performance, the kind that should keep him in Arizona for a long time. Miley has a disappointing 4.26 ERA at the moment, but his 1.32 WHIP is better than that and he has a solid 157/56 K/BB ratio in 170 innings.
Aug 21 - 7:11 PM

Wade Miley allowed just two runs (one earned) while striking out nine over seven innings on Saturday.

Miley lost to Henderson Alvarez, despite putting in one of his best starts of the season. Miley allowed only four hits over seven innings. The deciding run in this one came on a Cliff Pennington fielding error in the seventh inning that allowed Marcell Ozuna to score. The loss dropped Miley to 7-9 on the year. Miley's 4.46 ERA is a sign of his inconsistency, as he'll mix starts like Saturday's in with the occasional the occasional stinker (see his ten-run debacle against the Rays on August 6th).
Aug 16 - 9:46 PM

Wade Miley struck out eight while giving up three runs over six innings against the Rockies on Sunday.

Miley rebounded from a disastrous start his last time out to deliver a quality start Sunday. He did give up two home runs among his five hits allowed, giving him four homers surrendered in his last two starts, while walking two. The left-hander owns a 4.61 ERA through 25 starts, and he'll look to get back to the .500 mark Saturday at the Marlins.
Aug 10 - 10:57 PM

Wade Miley was destroyed by the Royals on Tuesday, allowing ten runs in just four and two-thirds innings.

All of the damage to Miley's line came in big third and fifth innings for the Royals. In the third, Salvador Perez launched a three-run homer off Miley. Then, in the fifth, Billy Butler smacked a three-run home run and Alex Gordon scored on a wild pitch. After Bo Schultz came in, Nori Aoki (of all people) hit a grand slam with three of the four runs tacked on Miley's line. When the dust of failure settled, Miley had allowed ten runs on nine hits. The debacle spiked Miley's season ERA from 4.14 to 4.61. He'll try to allow fewer runs next time out against the Rockies.
Aug 6 - 12:50 AM

Wade Miley threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win over the Reds.

Miley surrendered seven hits and walked four, but he was able to work out of multiple threats against the struggling Cincinnati offense despite recording only one strikeout. The left-hander moved to 7-7 on the season with a 4.14 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. Arizona has told teams that Miley is not available for trade, so his next start will be Tuesday against the Royals.
Jul 30 - 3:45 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears from a club official that the Diamondbacks aren't moving Wade Miley.

The Marlins are among the teams who have checked in about Miley, but the Diamondbacks are inclined to keep him. The 27-year-old southpaw owns a 4.34 ERA and 131/42 K/BB ratio over 139 innings this season. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is under team control through 2017.
Jul 29 - 2:04 PM

Wade Miley was hit hard in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday, surrendering six runs (five earned) on eight hits over his five innings.

Miley also issued three walks while punching out six on the night. The Phillies jumped on him for a pair of runs in the first inning, and added on in every inning against him except the fourth. The southpaw had been brilliant in his previous four starts, and will look to get back on track when he takes on the Reds in Cincinnati on Wednesday.
Jul 25 - 10:35 PM

Wade Miley hurled seven scoreless innings in the Diamondbacks' win over the Giants on Saturday.

Miley walked three but gave up only four hits in the impressive outing. He's been fantastic so far in July and will try to stay hot after the All-Star break. The Diamondbacks are expected to be sellers at this year's deadline but Miley is said to be unavailable.
Jul 12 - 6:59 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that teams checking with the Diamondbacks regarding Wade Miley have been told that he's unavailable.

Miley is under club control through 2017 and the D'Backs don't want to give him up. Arizona has also told teams that Paul Goldschmidt, Patrick Corbin, Chris Owings, A.J. Pollock, Archie Bradley, Brandon Shipley and probably Brad Ziegler and Mark Trumbo are also unavailable.
Jul 11 - 2:54 PM

Wade Miley struck out eight while allowing one run over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Braves on Sunday.

Miley allowed just five hits, all singles, while walking one in the start. Despite pitching well, it was his first win since May 10 as he's just 4-6 on the season. He's definitely NL-only worth given his recent performance, and his strikeouts -- he's fanned 122 in 126 2/3 innings this season -- make him a passable deep mixed league option as well. He'll carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into Saturday's start at the Giants.
Jul 6 - 4:26 PM

Wade Miley struck out 10 batters and allowed two runs over eight innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Miley allowed just two hits before the ninth inning, as the Pirates put two more on against him before he was removed. Closer Addison Reed allowed both inherited runners to score, depriving Miley of his fourth win. Still, he didn't walk a batter while striking out 10, the fifth time he's struck out at least eight batters in a game in his last seven starts. It all adds up to a 4.61 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and a surprising 106/34 K/BB ratio in 113 1/3 innings. Miley will try to keep it going Sunday at the Braves.
Jul 1 - 9:44 PM

Wade Miley was tagged for five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over four innings in Tuesday’s no-decision victory over the Indians.

Miley struck out three and walked two before his evening ended prematurely at 83 pitches. It was encouraging to see the southpaw keep the ball in the yard; he entered tied for second in the majors with 17 bombs allowed. Though he has a rotten 4.78 ERA, Miley has pitched far better than that with a 1.33 WHIP and 96/34 K/BB rate. He ranks fifth in the NL with 105 1/3 innings pitched and eighth in strikeouts. Miley will try to finally pitch up to his peripherals when he toes the rubber in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Jun 25 - 3:17 AM

Wade Miley held the Brewers to three runs over 7 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision.

The southpaw punched out eight and walked four. Miley was initially scheduled to start Tuesday, but the Snakes swapped his slot with Mike Bolsinger, who was recalled when Bronson Arroyo was placed on the disabled list. Entering tied for second-most homers allowed in the majors with 16, perhaps it was encouraging that Miley held the Brewers (ranked third in the NL with 74) to a solo long ball (Khris Davis). Miley hasn't won in his last seven starts, the longest futility stretch of his career. Miley (4.62 ERA) welcomes Cleveland to an NL venue when the Indians come to town on Tuesday.
Jun 19 - 12:25 AM

Wade Miley got the no-decision, allowing four runs over five innings as the D'Backs lost to the Astros 5-4 in 10 innings on Thursday.

Miley failed to make it into the sixth inning for the first time since April 23. He was bailed out of a loss by the Astros' bullpen. The lefty allowed seven hits -- including home runs to Jonathan Singleton and Carlos Corporan -- while walking two and striking out eight. Miley has had a rough go of it in 2014, now carrying a 4.71 ERA despite a 1.29 WHIP and an 85/28 K/BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings. He'll go up against the Brewers at home in his next outing.
