FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that teams checking with the Diamondbacks regarding Wade Miley have been told that he's unavailable.

Miley is under club control through 2017 and the D'Backs don't want to give him up. Arizona has also told teams that Paul Goldschmidt, Patrick Corbin, Chris Owings, A.J. Pollock, Archie Bradley, Brandon Shipley and probably Brad Ziegler and Mark Trumbo are also unavailable.
Jul 11 - 2:54 PM

Wade Miley struck out eight while allowing one run over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Braves on Sunday.

Miley allowed just five hits, all singles, while walking one in the start. Despite pitching well, it was his first win since May 10 as he's just 4-6 on the season. He's definitely NL-only worth given his recent performance, and his strikeouts -- he's fanned 122 in 126 2/3 innings this season -- make him a passable deep mixed league option as well. He'll carry a 4.42 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into Saturday's start at the Giants.
Jul 6 - 4:26 PM

Wade Miley struck out 10 batters and allowed two runs over eight innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Miley allowed just two hits before the ninth inning, as the Pirates put two more on against him before he was removed. Closer Addison Reed allowed both inherited runners to score, depriving Miley of his fourth win. Still, he didn't walk a batter while striking out 10, the fifth time he's struck out at least eight batters in a game in his last seven starts. It all adds up to a 4.61 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and a surprising 106/34 K/BB ratio in 113 1/3 innings. Miley will try to keep it going Sunday at the Braves.
Jul 1 - 9:44 PM

Wade Miley was tagged for five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over four innings in Tuesday’s no-decision victory over the Indians.

Miley struck out three and walked two before his evening ended prematurely at 83 pitches. It was encouraging to see the southpaw keep the ball in the yard; he entered tied for second in the majors with 17 bombs allowed. Though he has a rotten 4.78 ERA, Miley has pitched far better than that with a 1.33 WHIP and 96/34 K/BB rate. He ranks fifth in the NL with 105 1/3 innings pitched and eighth in strikeouts. Miley will try to finally pitch up to his peripherals when he toes the rubber in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Jun 25 - 3:17 AM

Wade Miley held the Brewers to three runs over 7 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision.

The southpaw punched out eight and walked four. Miley was initially scheduled to start Tuesday, but the Snakes swapped his slot with Mike Bolsinger, who was recalled when Bronson Arroyo was placed on the disabled list. Entering tied for second-most homers allowed in the majors with 16, perhaps it was encouraging that Miley held the Brewers (ranked third in the NL with 74) to a solo long ball (Khris Davis). Miley hasn't won in his last seven starts, the longest futility stretch of his career. Miley (4.62 ERA) welcomes Cleveland to an NL venue when the Indians come to town on Tuesday.
Jun 19 - 12:25 AM

Wade Miley got the no-decision, allowing four runs over five innings as the D'Backs lost to the Astros 5-4 in 10 innings on Thursday.

Miley failed to make it into the sixth inning for the first time since April 23. He was bailed out of a loss by the Astros' bullpen. The lefty allowed seven hits -- including home runs to Jonathan Singleton and Carlos Corporan -- while walking two and striking out eight. Miley has had a rough go of it in 2014, now carrying a 4.71 ERA despite a 1.29 WHIP and an 85/28 K/BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings. He'll go up against the Brewers at home in his next outing.
Jun 13 - 12:09 AM

Wade Miley was tagged for four runs, all solo home runs, on eight hits over six innings in Sunday’s loss to the Reds.

On the plus side, Miley did manage to rack up nine strikeouts in the outing without issuing a free pass. Zack Cozart and Todd Frazier knocked balls over the boards to get the Reds on the board in the second inning, and Ryan Ludwick and Chris Heisey each added their own before Miley’s day was done. Now 3-6 on the season, he’ll carry a 4.85 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 72/26 K/BB ratio into Saturday’s matchup against the Braves.
Jun 1 - 7:14 PM

Wade Miley yielded three runs on eight hits over seven innings Tuesday in a no-decision loss to the Padres.

He struck out a season-high 11 and walked one. The lefty has given Arizona a little value this year by throwing 75 2/3 innings over 12 starts, but those haven't been inspiring frames. He's 3-5 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. Miley hosts Cincinnati on Sunday.
May 28 - 12:39 AM

Wade Miley fell to 3-5, allowing three runs in 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Miley was blanking the Cardinals through five, but ran into trouble in the sixth, ultimately allowing a game-tying two-run double to Shane Robinson. The lefty served up the go-ahead run in the seventh on Allen Craig's RBI single. Miley allowed seven hits, walked four, and struck out three. He will face the National League's worst offense when he matches up against the Padres at home in his next start.
May 22 - 10:08 PM

Wade Miley gave up four runs in six innings Friday in a home loss to the Dodgers.

Including his start in Australia, Miley is now 1-4 with a 7.14 ERA in his home starts this year, compared to 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in five starts on the road. It's partly a fluke, but it's also likely a function of pitching in a hitter friendly park. As disappointing as the Diamondbacks have been, he just doesn't seem like a very good play in mixed leagues right now.
May 17 - 1:13 AM

Wade Miley limited the White Sox to two earned runs over seven innings Saturday to earn his third win.

It was a sharp outing for Miley, who struck out six, issued no walks, and yielded only four hits. His only major hiccup was a two-run homer from Paul Konerko. Miley will carry a 3-3 record, 4.82 ERA, and 1.21 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Dodgers.
May 10 - 10:14 PM

Wade Miley allowed three runs on six hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday.

Miley rebounded from a tough outing his last start to turn in a quality start Sunday. He allowed six hits and a walk while striking out four in the game. He'll face the White Sox in a tough interleague matchup on Saturday.
May 4 - 8:42 PM

Wade Miley was torched for seven earned runs on 10 hits over six innings Monday as the Diamondbacks lost to the Rockies.

Despite being nowhere near his pitch limit, Miley ran out of steam in the sixth inning, allowing a solo homer to Troy Tulowitzki and a two-run round-tripper to Justin Morneau. He was yanked after 89 pitches having struck out two and walked one. Entering this start, Miley had a 4.50 ERA, which more or less made him the early-season ace of this atrocious Arizona staff. Miley, now 2-3 with a 5.36 ERA, will have an opportunity to shave that earned run average this weekend in San Diego.
Apr 29 - 12:45 AM

Wade Miley gave up five runs -- three earned -- over five innings Wednesday in a no-decision vs. the Cubs.

Miley looked decent in the early going and wound up striking out seven batters on the afternoon, but the Cubs got to him for three runs in the fifth inning and two runs in the sixth. He would have been handed the loss, but the Diamondbacks rallied for five runs in the top of the ninth inning. Miley gets the Rockies next.
