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.
It wasn't a terrible outing for Miley, but walks continue to be an issue for the southpaw.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Miley has now allowed three runs or less in four of his last five starts, but has just a 1-2 record in that span to show for it. He is sitting 7-9 with a 4.29 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 27 starts while owning a respectable 157:58 K:BB rate over 170.0 innings. Although he has yet to establish himself as a must-start in his third full season, Miley makes for a solid deep league add as long as he continues to support a high strikeout rate (8.43 K/9). He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Dodgers on Wednesday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
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
