Orioles placed LHP Wade Miley on the paternity leave list.

He's expected to return to the club in a couple days and will either start Friday or Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Miley delivered 8 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his last start against the Diamondbacks, striking out 11. It was his best outing of the year, and one of the best outings of his career.
Sep 27 - 6:51 PM

Wade Miley struck out 11 and fell an out shy of a complete game Saturday, allowing a lone run in the Orioles' 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Miley gave up seven hits without allowing a walk, and the 11 strikeouts were a season high. An RBI double by Brandon Drury with two outs in the ninth ended Miley's night just shy of the complete game, but it was still an impressive turn for the 29-year-old. Miley is 9-13 with a 5.40 ERA in 29 starts overall, and he'll make his final start of the year Friday against the Yankees.
Sep 24 - 11:26 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Wade Miley (back) is feeling better.

Miley was forced to exit Sunday's start against the Rays after four innings due to upper back cramps, but it's a good sign that he was able to throw on Monday. It doesn't sound overly serious, but more should be known about his status in the next day or so.

Wade Miley was lifted from Sunday's start versus the Rays after four innings with upper back cramps.

It's a shame, as Miley was in the midst of his best start in a while with four shutout frames. The Orioles should have more on his status after the game.
Sep 18 - 3:17 PM

Wade Miley lasted just 1 1/3 innings against his former team Monday, yielding six runs in a loss to the Red Sox.

Miley didn't pitch well in his lone season in Boston and his return there Monday went poorly, as he gave up eight hits and walked one while retiring only four batters. The left-hander has a hideous 8.41 ERA over eight starts since joining the Orioles. He'll try for better results this weekend against the Rays at home.
Sep 12 - 10:16 PM

Wade Miley did not impress in Sunday's loss to the Yankees, allowing four runs on five hits over five innings.

Miley walked four on the afternoon, throwing 102 pitches (62 strikes) over his five innings of work. The southpaw has allowed at least four runs in four of his seven starts since moving over to the O's earlier this summer. Another start should not be assumed here, but if he does get the call, it would come against the Tigers in Detroit.
Sep 4 - 5:19 PM

Wade Miley has been tabbed to start Sunday's game against the Yankees.

The uncertainty as to whether Miley would start this weekend was not due to an injury, but rather pure ineffectiveness. In six starts since being traded over to the Orioles, the 29-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 7.14 ERA. His leash is growing shorter at this point.
Aug 31 - 11:36 PM

Wade Miley yielded three runs over seven innings Monday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Miley gave up five hits (including two homers) and walked two while tying a season-high with nine strikeouts. It was a solid outing under the circumstances, but not good enough with Marco Estrada dealing on the other side. The southpaw owns a 7.14 ERA over six starts with Baltimore and lines up for a start against the Yankees at home this weekend.
Aug 29 - 9:46 PM

Wade Miley earned a win against the Nationals by holding them to two runs over five innings on Wednesday.

He gave up seven hits, including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa. His six strikeouts helped quell some threats. It was a short outing but the Orioles will take it. Miley has not been good this year. Tonight's pleasant outing improves his record to 8-10 with an unsightly 5.51 ERA. His owners must soon decide if they are brave enough (or desperate enough) to use him in a two-start week against the Blue Jays and Yankees beginning on Monday.
Aug 25 - 12:07 AM

Wade Miley was hit hard in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing six runs on six hits in only 1 2/3 innings.

On the plus side, all five of the outs that he did record came via strikeouts and he didn't walk a batter. George Springer tagged him for a solo homer to lead off the game, then the Astros tacked on five runs before chasing the veteran southpaw in the second inning. He'll try to turn things around and improve upon a troublesome 5.58 ERA and 1.43 WHIP when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Aug 19 - 10:53 PM

Wade Miley yielded seven runs -- six earned -- over 4 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Giants.

Baltimore rallied for seven runs in the final three innings to steal the game from San Francisco. Miley gave up eight hits and walked two while registering only one strikeout. He has an unsightly 5.23 ERA on the year.
Aug 14 - 7:31 PM

Wade Miley was hit with a tough-luck loss against the A's on Tuesday, taking the defeat despite allowing just two runs over six innings.

Miley scattered six hits while striking out two and walking three on the evening. An RBI double by Danny Valencia and a sacrifice fly by Khris Davis in the third was all it took to spoil the southpaw's outing in the 2-1 loss. Despite the final result, this was an improvement on his first post-trade start with the O's -- he surrendered four runs in five innings against Texas in his Orioles debut. Miley will carry a 4.98 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants next time he takes the mound.
Aug 10 - 12:52 AM

Wade Miley said he's fine after taking a comebacker off his left calf Thursday against the Rangers.

Rougned Odor hit a liner right back at Miley to end the fifth inning. Miley didn't come out for the sixth but that had more to do with his pitch count (91) than the calf injury. The left-hander fully expects to make his next turn Tuesday against Oakland.
Aug 4 - 10:17 PM

Wade Miley allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.

Making his Orioles debut, Miley gave up a solo home run to Jonathan Lucroy among the eight hits allowed. He also struck out five without issuing a free pass. He'd actually been pretty good in his final three starts with the Mariners before the trade, posting quality starts in each, but he fell to 7-9 with a 5.08 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with the loss. A more favorable matchup with the Athletics in Oakland is on tap for Tuesday.
