Wade Miley (groin) is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

Miley was making a serious case for a rotation spot before suffering a mild tear of his left groin near the end of spring training. He's expected to make about 2-3 starts in the minors before being reevaluated.
Apr 16 - 3:54 PM

Wade Miley (groin) has begun playing catch and is hoping to throw off the mound starting next week.

Once Miley is able to throw off the mound, he should make a few bullpen sessions, and then could make some rehab starts at the minor league level. Once healthy, he'll either be activated to pitch in the Milwaukee rotation, or he'll become a free-agent if he exercises his opt-out.
Apr 4 - 7:16 PM

Wade Miley will remain with the Brewers while he rehabs his injured groin.

Miley's contract carried a March 22 opt-out but the Brewers have extended his opt-out deadline while he works back from a torn groin. The injury is expected to sideline Miley for at least 2-4 weeks. When healthy, the left-hander will have a chance to hold down one of the final spots in Milwaukee's starting rotation.
Mar 22 - 8:47 PM

Wade Miley has been diagnosed with a mild tear of his left groin.

Miley suffered the injury during his Cactus League start Wednesday night against the Athletics. It's unclear what his immediate future holds, as he has a March 22 opt-out clause in his minor league contract with the Brewers but has said publicly that he wants to remain with the organization. There's no timetable for when he might be able to resume pitching. The veteran left-hander had looked good this spring in the Cactus League and probably would have had a 25-man roster spot if not for this untimely groin injury.
Mar 22 - 11:28 AM

Wade Miley scattered three hits and two runs over four innings Wednesday in the Brewers’ Cactus League win over the Athletics.

He handed out three free passes while adding three punch-outs. Miley was cruising until the fifth when he loaded the bases by walking Jake Smolinski, giving up a single to Sheldon Neuse and allowing Dustin Fowler to reach on a sacrifice bunt. Matt Albers replaced the left-hander and promptly served up a two-run single to Franklin Barreto. Miley is hoping his 4.95 Cactus League ERA will be enough to earn him a spot in Milwaukee’s starting rotation.
Mar 21 - 7:40 PM

Updating a previous injury item, Wade Miley left Wednesday's start against the Athletics with a left groin strain.

Miley will undergo an MRI. He was pitching well prior to the injury, not allowing a run in his four-plus innings of work, although he did have two runs charged to him after he left. This could be devastating for his chances of making the Brewers rotation if the left-hander has to miss time to begin the 2018 season.
Mar 21 - 6:00 PM

Wade Miley (undisclosed) left Wednesday's start against the Athletics with an injury.

What exactly the injury is remains unknown at this time, but it occurred when Miley tried to field a bunt down the third base line. Miley is currently battling for the final spot in the Milwaukee rotation, so an significant injury could curtail his chances of making the roster. We'll have more when the Brewers update Miley's status.
Mar 21 - 5:26 PM

Wade Miley was decimated for seven runs in three innings but his team still won the game against the Reds on Friday.

He served up 10 base hits in the brief outing, including a home run by the opposing pitcher Michael Lorenzen. Miley had been having a strong spring before today and this could put a serious dent in the non-roster invitee's chances of making the team. He put up a poor 5.61 ERA in 32 starts for the Orioles last year and isn't likely to be a fantasy asset even if he does work his way into the Mariner rotation.
Mar 16 - 8:19 PM

Wade Miley went five innings against the Indians on Sunday, striking out four and allowing two runs.

Miley did walk three and allow three hits, but it was another solid start for the left-hander as he tries to earn a spot in the back of the Brewers' rotation. He has struggled mightily to throw strikes over the past few seasons, but he's limited the self-inflicted damage so far in Arizona.
Mar 11 - 5:37 PM

Wade Miley gave up three runs -- zero earned -- while notching four strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings Tuesday against the White Sox.

The second of two throwing errors by Orlando Arcia led to three unearned runs being charged to Miley's ledger in the fourth inning. All told, it was another successful outing for Miley, who has yet to give up an earned run this spring and boasts an 11/1 K/BB ratio over eight frames. If he keeps it up, he might have a good shot at a rotation spot.
Mar 6 - 5:01 PM

Wade Miley recorded five strikeouts over 2 1/3 scoreless innings Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Miley limited his former team to a couple singles and didn't walk anyone. He's now put up 4 1/3 scoreless innings with a 7/0 K/BB ratio in his first two Cactus League appearances. The left-hander is in camp as a non-roster invitee but could win a spot in the Brewers' rotation.
Mar 1 - 5:55 PM

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.
Jan 21 - 3:43 PM

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.
