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. Mon, Dec 7, 2015 04:13:00 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Wade Miley logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits over seven strong frames.

Miley punched out five on the night and didn't issue a free pass. All of the damage against him came in the first inning, but he was able to settle down beautifully afterwards and keep the Rays at bay the rest of his night. He left in line to earn his 12th victory of the season, but the Red Sox bullpen couldn't protect his lead. The inconsistent 28-year-old will bring a 4.41 ERA and 1.34 WHIP into Wednesday's matchup against the Orioles in Baltimore.

Wade Miley pitched his first career complete game Saturday in Boston's 9-2 rout of the Phillies.

Miley scattered five hits and two earned runs over his nine tremendous frames. He walked none and struck out eight. The 28-year-old left-hander has mostly been a disappointment in his first season with the Red Sox, but there have been some promising outings mixed in and he looked very sharp against the cellar-dwelling Phillies on Saturday. Miley will carry a 4.43 ERA into his next start on the road against the Rays.

Wade Miley took a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Mets, giving up four runs over six innings.

Miley held the Mets to one run over five innings, but faltered in the sixth, allowing a two-run double to Juan Uribe and an RBI single to Anthony Recker. The lefty served up nine hits and a walk while striking out six overall on the afternoon. Miley carries a disappointing 4.57 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and a 121/54 K/BB ratio in 159 2/3 innings. He'll look for better results in a home start versus the Phillies next.

Wade Miley allowed 13 hits and five runs over 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox on Tuesday.

Miley did his best to limit the damage through six innings, yielding just two runs despite a number of baserunners, but the White Sox pushed across three more runs in the seventh. Miley walked one while striking out three in the outing. The start was the third in his last six appearances that Miley has allowed nine hits or more. The left-hander is now 10-10 with a 4.51 ERA and 1.39 WHIP ahead of Monday's start against the Yankees.

Wade Miley pitched 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball to defeat the Royals on Thursday.

Miley struck out six and walked none. He has a 3.35 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings since the All-Star break. While he hasn't been great at any point, he's recovered from an ugly April to closely resemble the pitcher the Red Sox figured they were getting in their winter trade with the Diamondbacks.

Wade Miley delivered one of his finest starts of the season on Saturday, allowing just two runs on four hits over seven strong innings.

Miley punched out eight on the afternoon while walking three. He was staked to a massive lead early in the ballgame and simply needed to avoid a meltdown in order to secure his ninth victory. He'll bring a 4.58 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Royals.

Wade Miley struggled in a Saturday no-decision against the Tigers, allowing five runs on nine hits over six innings.

All five runs scored in Miley's last two innings on the mound, as he allowed two runs in the fifth inning and three more in the sixth. He struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. The owner of a 4.68 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, the 28-year-old southpaw has been intermittently effective this season, though there's nothing to love here. He'll tango with the Mariners at Fenway next Saturday afternoon.

Wade Miley put together a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Rays on Sunday, tossing 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

Miley's strong start comes on the heels of a seven-run debacle versus the White Sox. Against the Rays on Sunday, he bounced back nicely and scattered five hits while striking out four and walking one over 6 2/3 innings. Brandon Guyer burned him for a solo home run in the first inning and James Loney notched an RBI double in the fourth, but the 28-year-old southpaw otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. Miley's quietly allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts and holds a 4.55 ERA and 1.39 WHIP overall. He'll take to the road to face the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
