Latest Update Red Sox and Diamondbacks are close to a deal for Wade Miley Wed Dec, 10, 04:37 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.
No word on which names have been bandied about on the Red Sox end, but the Diamondbacks probably have a pretty steep price tag at the moment. Miley has a career 3.79 ERA but posted a career-best 8.18 K/9 last season. Still, it's difficult to imagine the Sox parting with that great of a prospect for him.Analyst: Howard BenderMore Experts..

Ken Rosenthal reports that the D'Backs entered the offseason with no intention of trading Miley, who's under team control for three more years -- he's eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter. The potential returns, however, have apparently changed their minds. The Rangers have also been linked to Miley. Stay tuned. Analyst: Spencer Silva
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
