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.

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.

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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 09:55:00 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.

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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 05:31:00 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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 04:50:00 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.

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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 03:37:00 PM'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.
