Latest Update Wade Miley blanks Reds over 6.2 innings Thu Jul, 31, 05:38 AM
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.
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
Miley won his third consecutive start despite some early struggles Saturday. He is now 3-0 with a 1.89 ERA and 29 strikeouts to just five walks over four starts (28.2 innings) this month and thus should be owned in 12 team or deeper mixed leagues already. His next start will be on Friday in Philly.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Miley has turned the corner, it seems, as he improved to 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA, 33 strikeouts, and just one home run over his last five starts (33.1 IP). The lefty is on a nice roll, and while believing in him on a consistent basis may be burn you more times than not, he appears to have proven that he is at least worth utilizing as a spot starter in leagues that allow you to stream players in-and-out going forward.Analyst: Michael Pichan
