Wade Miley was absolutely pulverized by the Orioles on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.
All six of the earned runs came in a monster third inning for Baltimore, as Miley slowly and methodically melted down. After a pair of singles and a walk, he lost the strike zone against Adam Jones and forced in a run. The Orioles then proceeded to hit two RBI singles and an RBI double and Miley was pulled from the game. By the end of the inning, the score was 7-0 Orioles (they would go on to score 18 runs for the game). Miley has now allowed 13 earned runs in his last 10 1/3 innings and the 28-year-old lefty probably would do best to avoid looking at the stat sheet any time soon, as he currently holds an 8.62 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over just 15 2/3 innings. He'll have to do better than that when he faces the rival Yankees in his next start. Apr 26 - 4:53 PM

Wade Miley held the Rays scoreless over 5 2/3 innings as the Red Sox shut out the Rays 1-0 on Tuesday.

Miley worked around three hits and four walks on the evening, striking out three. It was a nice change from his last start in which he allowed seven runs over 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Nationals. The southpaw owns an ugly 6.07 ERA and 1.83 WHIP through three starts. He'll look to carry over Tuesday's success when he faces the Orioles at OPACY Sunday.

Wade Miley was shelled for seven earned runs in 2 1/3 innings Wednesday as the Red Sox fell to the Nationals.

Miley looked toast from the jump, yielding two runs in the first inning on a Bryce Harper RBI double and a Ryan Zimmerman RBI triple. Washington then exploded for six runs in the third. Miley had a decent debut for the Red Sox last Friday against the Yankees, but he's now carrying a grotesque 10.57 ERA through two outings with his new team. The 28-year-old left-hander will look to bounce back next week at Tampa Bay.
Apr 15 - 4:58 PM

Wade Miley was handed a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Yankees.

He fanned six and walked two in his debut with Boston. Miley held the Yankees scoreless until the sixth inning when he gave up an RBI single to Alex Rodriguez. The second run scored after he was pulled from the game. The southpaw was in line for the win until Edward Mujica blew the save in the ninth. Miley had a 4.34 ERA last season, but he saw an uptick in strikeouts and advanced metrics said that he deserved better. He also induces plenty of grounders, which is good news in a hitter-friendly ballpark. There's some upside here in fantasy leagues.
Apr 11 - 1:11 AM

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.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 09:40:00 PM

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.
