Latest Update Wade Miley allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over six innings in a no decision against the Rockies on Sunday. Sun Aug, 10, 08:03 PM
Is crafty and can deceive batters, and can rack up strikeouts in the process. Is also a strike-thrower with good command. Has become a durable workhorse, too.
Flaws: : Doesn't have ideal size for a pitcher, so injuries and stamina are always going to be a concern with him. Also, he has a tendency to leave some of pitches up in the zone.
He did get the quality start and the eight strikeouts were a huge bonus. His next start is vs the Marlins on Saturday and makes for a nice streaming option that will pile up the strikeouts with a good chance of producing a quality start. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Following the July 31 trade deadline, this type of move happens throughout baseball but rarely do any players end up on a new team if claimed. If a team puts a claim on Miley they will then have to work our a deal with the Diamondbacks to acquire him, or his current team will be able to pull him back and retain him. A move should not be expected from the Diamondbacks after this action as they are likely trying to see what type of value he may have at this point in the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Miley bounced back from a tough outing last week and now has thrown five quality starts in his last six outings. He's picked up four wins in that span, and while he's walked a few too many lately and only fanned one in this most-recent outing, he's seen a decent uptick in his strikeout rate as he improves those ratios. He's got a nice, favorable match-up against the Royals next week, so leave him active.Analyst: Howard Bender
After allowing just six runs over his last four starts, Miley matched that mark with one trip to the mound on Friday night as he fell one game below .500 on the year. He is now 6-7 with a 4.34 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 22 starts, while owning a solid 131:42 K:BB rate. Even if he doesn't get his act together as long as he keeps striking out batters at a high clip (8.48 K/9), he remains a decent fantasy option in deep leagues. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Reds next week. Analyst: Matthew Beck
