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.
The southpaw typically struggles when he walks batters. He pitched well in his last start and didn't walk a batter, and today was the opposite. He has been up-and-down all year and owners should view him as a deeper league streaming option at best.Analyst: Colby Conway
Miley has now allowed three runs or less in each of his last seven starts, while owning a 37:19 K:BB rate over that stretch. He is sitting 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA and 1.36 WHIP through 31 starts, but as long as he continues to support a solid 8.11 K/9 down the stretch he holds matchup play value at the very least. The Diamondbacks hurler will look to finish his season on a high note when he takes on the Rockies on Sunday in his next start. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Despite allowing three runs or less in each of his last six starts, Miley has gone 0-3 with three no-decisions in that stretch. He is now sitting on a 4.28 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 30 starts with his nothing special, but he has managed to support a 8.22 K/9 through 185.0 innings which gives him slight value moving forward. Miley will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Giants on Monday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Despite allowing just one run through seven innings Miley was forced to settle for his third no-decision over his last five trips to the mound as he now sits 7-10 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 29 starts this season. Both his earned-run average and his record certainly don't suggest he is worth owing down the stretch, but he has managed to support a 8.26 K/9 this season, so if you are looking for help in the strikeout category, he makes a nice add when heading into a favorable matchup. He will take on the Dodgers when he takes the mound for his next start on Sunday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
