Brewers signed LHP Wade Miley to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that Miley can earn $2.5 million if he makes the Brewers' roster, and a total of $5.7 million if he makes 29 starts for Milwaukee. The 31-year-old southpaw spent the last year-and-a-half with Baltimore and he went 8-15 with a 5.61 ERA in 32 starts for the Orioles in 2017. He also led the league in walks last year, putting 93 baserunners on via base-on-balls. Miley has a chance to win a spot in the back of the Brewers' rotation out of camp, but based on what we've seen lately, he probably won't be an effective starter if he does. Feb 14 - 10:34 PM

Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN reports that the Twins are "maintaining regular dialogue" with Wade Miley's agent.

Wolfson also notes that the club is talking to the agents for Yu Darvish, Lance Lynn, Alex Cobb, Chris Tillman and Mike Napoli, players that they had previously been connected to. Miley obviously wouldn't be the frontline starter the Twins are looking for, but he'd be a solid depth addition even though he's coming off a year when he posted a 5.61 ERA over 32 starts.

Orioles declined LHP Wade Miley's $12 million option for 2018.

He'll get a $500,000 buyout instead. Miley has posted a 5.48 ERA over the last two seasons, but he's durable and should be able to land a fifth starter job somewhere.

According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, the Orioles are expected to decline their $12 million option on Wade Miley.

Instead, they'll pay the veteran southpaw a $500,000 buyout. That certainly doesn't come as much of a surprise as Miley compiled a miserable 8-15 record, 5.61 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in what was a historically bad season for the Orioles' rotation as a whole. Kubatko also notes that Miley is hoping to return to the National League.

Wade Miley struggled in Friday's loss to the Rays, allowing four runs on five hits in his four-plus innings of work.

On the plus side, the left-hander fanned six on the night, though he also struggled with his command and issued five free passes. Evan Longoria's solo homer leading off the fifth inning was the final nail in the coffin. Miley finishes the season with a disappointing 8-15 record, 5.61 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 142/93 K/BB ratio in his 157 1/3 innings.

Wade Miley allowed six runs and was lifted before recording a second out in the first inning Thursday against the Yankees.

The Yanks jumped on him early, ripping off two singles and a double to start the game, and after a Matt Holliday run-scoring ground out the New York club notched two more singles and a three-run homer to end Miley's evening before it started. He's now lost three in a row while watching his ERA climb to 5.32 in the process. The Red Sox are the next team to get a chance at the southpaw, facing him Tuesday.

Wade Miley surrendered four runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

Miley put himself in an early hole by giving up a three-run homer to Edwin Encarnacion in the first inning. He limited the Indians to one run the rest of the way, but the Orioles’ offense couldn’t get anything going against Mike Clevinger. Miley fanned four and walked three in the loss and now stands at 8-12 with a 4.96 ERA on the year. He’ll face the Yankees next week.

Wade Miley allowed two runs over six innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Miley blanked the Jays over his first four innings but gave up a solo homer to Kevin Pillar in the fifth and yielded another run in the sixth before exiting. He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out six in total. The loss was just his second since July 25, dropping him to 8-11. The southpaw will carry a 4.91 ERA and 1.66 WHIP into a matchup with the Indians on Friday.

Wade Miley allowed just one run over five-plus innings Sunday in a win over the Red Sox.

Miley posted zeros until the bottom of the sixth, when he gave up a leadoff double to Xander Bogaerts and was lifted from the game. Mychal Givens then served up an RBI double to Rafael Devers for Boston's only run of the afternoon. Miley struck out four, walked three, and gave up seven total hits. He'll bring a 4.99 ERA and 1.68 WHIP into his next start at home against the Blue Jays.

Wade Miley held the Athletics to two earned runs over six-plus innings Monday for his seventh win of the season.

Miley again struggled with free passes, issuing four of them, but he easily out-dueled A's starter Chris Smith and the Orioles' offense backed the 30-year-old left-hander with seven runs of support. Miley yielded five hits and struck out six while working into the top of the seventh inning. He's now 7-10 on the year with a 5.11 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 118/76 K/BB ratio in 26 starts covering 132 frames.

Wade Miley allowed three earned runs, five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over just 4 2/3 innings in a loss Tuesday in Seattle.

Miley threw just 53 of his 95 pitches for strikes as his ERA inched up to 5.21. The left-hander was unable to build off of the momentum of his quality start last time out in Oakland, his only outing with three or fewer earned runs and six or more innings since June 1. He simply cannot be trusted outside of deeper AL-only play. His next scheduled start is set for Sunday at home against the Angels.

Wade Miley was brilliant in Thursday's win over the A's, surrendering just one run on three hits over seven innings.

Miley struck out seven and walked three on the evening. The lone run to score on his watch came in the very first inning, when Jed Lowrie lofted a sacrifice fly. He completely shut the A's down from that point onward. In 24 starts this season, Miley owns a still-rough 5.19 ERA and 1.69 WHIP. He will look for a repeat of Thursday's result in a road showdown with the Mariners next time out.
Fri, Aug 11, 2017 01:21:00 AM

Wade Miley allowed two runs in five innings and had to settle for a no-decision against the Tigers on Saturday.

He gave up a two-run shot to Justin Upton in the first inning but was quite good from there on. He surrendered four hits and three walks while fanning five in the contest. Miley owns a weak 5.51 ERA in 23 starts. His 1.74 WHIP is the highest in the majors.

Wade Miley surrendered two runs on four hits over five innings in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Miley struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. Outside of a two-run single surrendered to Rougned Odor in the fourth inning, he kept the scoreboard clean. The veteran southpaw will carry an unwieldy 5.60 ERA and 1.76 WHIP into a home start against the Tigers in his next scheduled outing.

Wade Miley struggled in Tuesday's loss to the Rays, allowing five runs on five hits over his six frames.

Miley punched out four on the night while issuing three free passes. All of the damage against him came during a five-run uprising in the second inning, capped off by a three-run homer from Tim Beckham. He settled in nicely after that, but the damage had already been done. He'll look to improve upon a troublesome 5.69 ERA and 1.79 WHIP when he takes on the Royals at home on Monday.
