Wade Miley dazzled the home crowd with a complete-game shutout against the Royals on Saturday night, allowing just five hits and walking no one.
The lefty entered the game having allowed 18 earned runs in 23 innings through his first four starts, but he was brilliant on Saturday night. He didn't allow a Royals batter to reach second base after the third inning, and he retired the last eight batters that he faced. He lowered his ERA to 5.06 on the year. Miley now has two wins in a row and will take that winning streak on the road to Houston for his next scheduled start. May 1 - 1:15 AM

Wade Miley gave up four earned runs in 7 1/3 innings but picked up his first win of the 2016 season on Sunday afternoon against the Angels.

Miley was spotted a big 4-0 lead after the top of the first inning, then gave three of those runs right back in the bottom of the first on an Albert Pujols two-run homer and a Geovany Soto run-scoring double. The left-hander did settle in from there and managed to pitch into the bottom of the eighth inning, when Yunel Escobar launched a one-out solo shot. Miley will take a 7.04 ERA into his next start at home against the Royals.
Apr 24 - 6:56 PM

Wade Miley wasn't sharp Tuesday, yielding three runs over just 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians.

It could have been worse, as Miley permitted nine hits and walked four but was able to escape damage a few times with the help of three double-play balls. The left-hander holds a 16/4 K/BB ratio over his first 15 2/3 frames this season, but he also has an 8.04 ERA and 1.91 WHIP. Miley will try to get back on track this weekend in Anaheim.
Apr 19 - 9:25 PM

Wade Miley struggled in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers, surrendering five of the six runs on his line in the third inning.

Miley finished out tossing six innings while allowing six runs on 10 hits. He struck out seven without walking a batter, but despite the nice show of control, his pitches consistently caught too much of the plate and the Rangers made him pay. The big blow in that five-run third came courtesy of Adrian Beltre, who clocked a three-run home run to finish off the scoring in the frame. Miley has now allowed 11 runs in 12 innings. He will look to improve on that (as John Lennon once sang, can't get much worse) when he takes to the road against the Indians in his next start.
Apr 13 - 12:57 AM

Wade Miley gave up seven hits and five runs with seven strikeouts in six innings Wednesday against the Rangers.

Miley is coming off a very uninspiring year with the Red Sox and his first start of 2016 was more of the same. The strikeouts are nice but Miley really wasn’t fooling anyone on Wednesday. The Rangers bludgeoned him for three hits in the second inning and four more in the sixth, including a three-run homer by Prince Fielder. Miley will hope for better luck Tuesday in a rematch with Texas.
Apr 6 - 5:13 PM

Wade Miley allowed three earned runs in five innings Sunday in the Mariners' loss to the Indians.

Indians utility infielder Jose Ramirez tagged him for a pair of homes, one in the first and one in the third. Miley otherwise pitched fairly well, tallying three strikeouts against one walk. He's locked into a spot in the Mariners' Opening Day starting rotation and should improve upon the rough 4.46 ERA he registered his one year in Boston. That doesn't necessarily make him an attractive fantasy commodity in standard mixed leagues.
Mar 20 - 6:51 PM

Wade Miley surrendered three runs in three innings against the Cubs on Thursday.

All three runs scored in the second inning, including a solo homer by Jorge Soler. The southpaw gave up four hits in all while walking none and striking out one. Miley had a 4.46 ERA and 147/64 K/BB ratio over 193 2/3 innings with the Red Sox last season and should see some improvement with the move to Seattle.
Mar 10 - 7:04 PM

Wade Miley pitched two scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut against the Angels on Saturday.

Miley allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two in the outing. Acquired from the Red Sox in December, the southpaw should enjoy his new surroundings at Safeco Field. Miley posted a 4.46 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 147/64 K/BB ratio over 193 2/3 innings last season.
Mar 5 - 7:01 PM

Mariners acquired LHP Wade Miley and RHP Jonathan Aro from the Red Sox for RHP Carson Smith and LHP Roenis Elias.

Miley was put on the trading block almost immediately after Dave Dombrowski took over as the new Red Sox president, and the David Price signing made it even more certain that the 29-year-old left-hander would be heading out the door. Miley had a rough 4.46 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 147/64 K/BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings this summer with Boston, but there should be clearer skies ahead in pitcher-friendly Seattle. He's owed $15.08 million over the next two seasons and carries a $12 million club option for 2018.

Wade Miley has officially been traded to the Mariners, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says righty reliever Jonathan Aro is also on the move to the Mariners, with starter Roenis Elias and setup man Carson Smith heading to Boston in return. Miley produced an underwhelming 4.46 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 147/64 K/BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings this summer with the Red Sox, but he figures to improve with the change of scenery to pitcher-friendly Seattle. And he's only due a total of $15.08 million over the next two seasons. It's a nice buy-low move for the M's rotation, and the Sox will get a very good, cost-controlled bullpen arm in Smith.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 02:59:00 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners are "making progress" on a trade for Wade Miley.

Miami is also said to have some interest in Miley, who posted a disappointing 4.46 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 147/64 K/BB ratio across 193 2/3 innings with the Red Sox in 2015. He would probably fare much better from a fantasy perspective in pitcher-friendly Seattle than he did in Boston. Miley, 29, is owed $15.08 million over the next two seasons and he carries a $12 million club option for 2018.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 02:14:00 PM

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald says the Marlins have talked to the Red Sox about Wade Miley and Joe Kelly.

It sounds like there are several teams trying to "buy low" on Miley, who had a rough 4.46 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 147/64 K/BB ratio in 193 2/3 innings this past season with the Red Sox. Kelly is another buy-low type of trade target. Expect some action along this front during this week's Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 01:04:00 PM

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, teams have contacted the Red Sox regarding both Wade Miley and Joe Kelly.

If the Red Sox were to deal one of the hurlers away, Heyman notes that they would be seeking bullpen help in return. It appears as though new team president Dave Dombrowski has plans to completely overhaul a starting rotation that was among the worst in the league in 2015.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 07:03:00 PM

Wade Miley pitched five innings and allowed four runs Wednesday against the Yankees.

It seems like par for the course from Miley this year. He finishes his first year in the AL with an 11-11 record and a 4.46 ERA. Somewhat encouraging is that he went from posting a 73/37 K/BB ratio in 101 1/3 innings in the first half to a 74/27 K/BB ratio in 92 1/3 innings in the second half. The Red Sox still might seek to move him this winter, since they might figure younger pitchers are worthy of his spot.

Wade Miley limited the Blue Jays to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

Boston wound up winning with a late rally in the top of the ninth inning. Miley walked five, but yielded only three hits and operated smoothly in situations that required damage control. The 28-year-old left-hander is having an impressive September so far and has a favorable matchup next week against the Rays.
