    Player Outlook

    Wade Miley was traded to the Mariners before the 2016 season where he spent the majority of the year before being traded again, this time to the Orioles at the end of July. After logging over 190 innings in each of his previous four seasons, Miley was less durable during his age-29 campaign, and spent a few weeks on the disabled list with the Mariners. At the time he was traded to the Orioles, the veteran left-hander had posted a 4.98 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 112 innings. The move to the AL East wasn't kind to Miley, as he performed no better with the Orioles. In 11 starts with Baltimore, he posted a 6.17 ERA (3.79 FIP), 1.57 WHIP and a 55:15 K:BB over 54 innings. He also fell victim to a career-worst .328 BABIP and 69 percent left-on-base rate, which factor into his lower FIP. As the only lefty in the starting rotation, Miley will again be relied upon to eat innings for the Orioles in 2017, though his fantasy floor and ceiling are incredibly low.

    Player News
    • Miley says he's regained his command and believes a full spring training with the Orioles will allow him to have more success with the team in 2017, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. After spending half of 2016 searching for a lefty, the O's landed Miley in a trade with the Mariners. He went 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 11 starts with his newest club, but finished the campaign strong. Miley allowed just four runs over his last 18.2 innings while striking out 23 and only issuing two walks. "I didn't have very good command," he said. "My last few starts, I started commanding the baseball a little bit better and the results were more what I wanted. Command's a big thing." The 30-year-old played his first four seasons in Arizona, before moving through three organizations over the past two years. Miley said he feels settled and able to focus now on moving forward with a team that has confidence in him.

    • Orioles' Wade Miley: Solid in Saturday no-decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      Miley didn't factor into the decision against the Yankees on Saturday but struck out nine while also giving up three earned runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings. That's back-to-back encouraging outings for the veteran southpaw, whose 2016 has been a veritable rollercoaster. Miley closes out the regular season by surrendering only four earned runs over the 14.2 innings encompassing his last two starts, while mowing down an impressive 20 hitters over that span. Although his 9-13 record and 5.37 ERA this season leave much to be desired, he could play an important role in the postseason if given the opportunity, given his recent performances.

    • Miley (9-13) threw his longest outing since April, pitching 8.2 innings and allowing just one run on seven hits. He also struck out 11 and walked none in the victory against the Diamondbacks on Saturday. The left-hander didn't give up a run in his previous outing either, but taking that out of account, this near complete-game performance came out of nowhere. Before Saturday, Miley was 1-5 with a 7.55 ERA since coming over to Baltimore from Seattle at the trade deadline. He also had just seven strikeouts in his previous 10.1 frames. Miley is scheduled to pitch again next Saturday against the Yankees.

    • Miley (back) will start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports. It was unclear earlier in the week if Miley would be able to make a start before leaving the team to be with his expecting wife, but he will indeed take the ball Saturday and then head off to be with his family for a couple days. Part of the reason the Orioles rolled with Miley is that Kevin Gausman (intercostal) needed some extra rest. Miley was strong through four innings (one hit, zero runs) agains the Rays in his last start before leaving with the back issue, but he wasn't asked to turn that lineup over two full times, let alone three times. He remains a risky option Saturday.

    • Orioles' Wade Miley: Feeling better Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Miley (back) is feeling better Monday following his early exit from Sunday's game, Eddie Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports. Miley exited Sunday's game with a strained muscle in his back, but it's apparently nothing serious, as he went through a throwing session Monday afternoon. The left-hander's next start does not appear to be in much jeopardy, but he should still be considered day-to-day until the team officially confirms he's moved past the injury.
