Wade Miley hurled a strong start in a 6-1 win over the Angels on Sunday, tossing eight innings of one-run ball and allowing just four hits.
Miley cruised through this one. Outside of an RBI double by Mike Trout in the sixth inning, the Angels were unable to touch him. He allowed just four hits while striking out two and walking one. After a rough go of it early, Miley's now won three straight starts and has dropped his ERA to 4.47 to pair with a 1.31 WHIP and a 31/19 K/BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings pitched. He'll gun for a fourth straight win in a showdown with the Rangers next Friday. May 24 - 4:52 PM

Date:

Wade Miley held the Rangers to two runs over seven innings in a win Tuesday.

Miley allowed seven hits and a walk, striking out seven in the victory. His first go-round with the Red Sox has been largely positive, but a few bumps in the road have his ERA at 5.10 after eight starts. Miley is 3-4 on the year, but he's won two straight and will attempt to even his record Sunday against the Angels.
May 19 - 10:40 PM

Wade Miley delivered 6 2/3 innings of shutout ball Wednesday in Boston's 2-0 blanking of Oakland.

Miley walked four, gave up five hits, and struck out just one Oakland batter, but he was able to work out of multiple jams with a little luck and guile. Boston will be hoping for more of that from its rotation going forward. Miley is now 2-4 with a 5.60 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 22/16 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings this season. He'll get the Rangers at home next time out.
May 13 - 6:25 PM

Wade Miley picked up his fourth loss of the season on Friday, giving up four runs on eight hits over six innings against the Blue Jays.

On the plus side, he was able to punch out eight on the night while walking just one. The Jays got to him early in this one, with Josh Donaldson and Chris Colabello each blasting solo home runs in the first two innings. Through 28 2/3 innings, Miley owns a troublesome 6.91 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 21/12 K/BB ratio with the Red Sox. He'll look to turn things around when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Wednesday.
May 8 - 9:54 PM

Wade Miley posted a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, allowing three runs on seven hits over seven strong innings.

Miley punched out three on the afternoon without issuing a walk. All of the damage against him was inflicted by Brett Gardner, who delivered a two-run double in the third inning and added on an RBI single in the fifth. Even with this solid outing, Miley will still bring an unsightly 7.15 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into Friday's start against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
May 2 - 4:23 PM

Wade Miley was absolutely pulverized by the Orioles on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.

All six of the earned runs came in a monster third inning for Baltimore, as Miley slowly and methodically melted down. After a pair of singles and a walk, he lost the strike zone against Adam Jones and forced in a run. The Orioles then proceeded to hit two RBI singles and an RBI double and Miley was pulled from the game. By the end of the inning, the score was 7-0 Orioles (they would go on to score 18 runs for the game). Miley has now allowed 13 earned runs in his last 10 1/3 innings and the 28-year-old lefty probably would do best to avoid looking at the stat sheet any time soon, as he currently holds an 8.62 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over just 15 2/3 innings. He'll have to do better than that when he faces the rival Yankees in his next start.
Apr 26 - 4:53 PM

Wade Miley held the Rays scoreless over 5 2/3 innings as the Red Sox shut out the Rays 1-0 on Tuesday.

Miley worked around three hits and four walks on the evening, striking out three. It was a nice change from his last start in which he allowed seven runs over 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Nationals. The southpaw owns an ugly 6.07 ERA and 1.83 WHIP through three starts. He'll look to carry over Tuesday's success when he faces the Orioles at OPACY Sunday.
Apr 21 - 10:15 PM

Wade Miley was shelled for seven earned runs in 2 1/3 innings Wednesday as the Red Sox fell to the Nationals.

Miley looked toast from the jump, yielding two runs in the first inning on a Bryce Harper RBI double and a Ryan Zimmerman RBI triple. Washington then exploded for six runs in the third. Miley had a decent debut for the Red Sox last Friday against the Yankees, but he's now carrying a grotesque 10.57 ERA through two outings with his new team. The 28-year-old left-hander will look to bounce back next week at Tampa Bay.
Apr 15 - 4:58 PM

Wade Miley was handed a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Yankees.

He fanned six and walked two in his debut with Boston. Miley held the Yankees scoreless until the sixth inning when he gave up an RBI single to Alex Rodriguez. The second run scored after he was pulled from the game. The southpaw was in line for the win until Edward Mujica blew the save in the ninth. Miley had a 4.34 ERA last season, but he saw an uptick in strikeouts and advanced metrics said that he deserved better. He also induces plenty of grounders, which is good news in a hitter-friendly ballpark. There's some upside here in fantasy leagues.
Apr 11 - 1:11 AM

Wade Miley cruised through five scoreless innings against the Pirates on Saturday, striking out five.

After four very efficient innings, Miley got himself into a little jam with a walk and a HBP in the fifth, but he was able to work out of it. After giving up four runs in his first official outing of the spring, he's pitched eight scoreless innings his last two times out.
Mar 21 - 4:29 PM

Wade Miley blanked the Cardinals for three innings Monday in Boston's 3-0 victory.

Miley allowed three hits and walked two, but St. Louis couldn't push a run across against him. The left-hander seems lined up to serve as Boston's No. 3 starter behind Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello. He's about as good of a bet as any of Boston's pitchers in AL-only leagues, though Buchholz and Porcello may offer more upside for mixed leaguers.
Mar 9 - 3:54 PM

Wade Miley started and pitched two scoreless innings in Boston's 1-0 defeat of Boston College on Tuesday.

It seems the Red Sox's pitching is plenty good enough to compete in Division 1, having allowed five hits and one unearned run over 18 innings versus Northeastern and B.C. today. The offense, though, isn't quite in midseason form of yet. The Red Sox used backups in this one after going with starters in the first game, and the group combined for six hits, including two from Jemile Weeks.
Mar 3 - 7:00 PM

Red Sox and LHP Wade Miley avoided arbitration by agreeing to a three-year, $19.25 million contract extension with a $12 million club option for 2018.

The deal covers all three of Miley's arbitration years and it'll cover his first year of free agency if the option gets picked up. Boston acquired the 28-year-old left-hander from Arizona back in mid-December and will hope he's able to make a smooth transition to the American League. Miley had a good-but-not-great 3.79 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 7.0 K/9 in 638 2/3 total innings with the Diamondbacks.
Feb 5 - 3:26 PM

Wade Miley requested $4.3 million and was offered $3.4 million from the Red Sox when arbitration figures were exchanged Friday.

The two sides are expected to meet somewhere in the middle, shy of the $4 million mark. The 28-year-old hurler may have a difficult time transitioning to the American League and the cozy confines of Fenway Park due to his propensity to serve up the long ball.
Jan 16 - 6:51 PM

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.
