When the Red Sox acquired Wade Miley from the Diamondbacks last offseason, they were looking for him to rebound from a lackluster 2014 campaign that produced a 4.34 ERA. Instead, Miley produced fewer strikeouts and ground balls and actually increased his ERA to 4.46. He did improve slightly in the second half but was still not a pitcher whom standard mixed league owners could trust, even with two starts. Now with the Mariners, he may prove to be a better streaming option in 2016, but Miley only needs to be drafted in AL-only formats and deeper mixed leagues.
Miley was traded to the Mariners on Monday in exchange for Roenis Elias and Carson Smith, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. Miley struggled in his lone year in Boston after being traded there last offseason to the tune of a 4.46 ERA, though he got better as the season went on. His strikeout numbers and ratios fell in his first season in the American League, but the 29-year-old should benefit from a move to the pitcher friendly environment of Safeco Field.
Red Sox starting pitcher Wade Miley gave up four runs on nine hits and four walks in five innings against the Yankees on Wednesday. He struck out three. The lefty was long gone by the time this game was decided in 11 innings. Miley appropriately ended yet another unimpressive campaign by giving up at least four runs for the 13th time in 32 outings. He also failed to reach the 200-inning mark after doing so in the last two seasons despite pitching at least six innings in 10 straight outings prior to Wednesday's game.
Red Sox starter Wade Miley (11-11) gave up four runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Thursday. He struck out three and walked one. After three consecutive quality starts, Miley returned to normality in this one, delivering the sort of mediocrity fantasy owners have come to expect from him. He's improved his control a bit this year, but it's come at the cost of strikeouts, and the lefty's high-WHIP ways don't do him any favors. If the Boston rotation stays on schedule, he'll make two more starts this season.
Red Sox starter Wade Miley allowed two runs on three hits and five walks while striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays. Miley fought with his control, but kept the game tied before leaving with two outs in the seventh. It was his third straight quality start.
Red Sox starter Wade Miley was solid in his outing against the Rays on Friday. The southpaw allowed three runs on seven hits and no walks over seven innings. He struck out five, throwing 72 of his 109 pitches for strikes. All of the runs Miley allowed came in the first inning, and he settled in after that, lowering his ERA a tick to 4.41. He left the game with a 4-3 lead. Unfortunately for him, the bullpen coughed up that lead and the Red Sox went on to lose the game 8-4.
