Miley allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out two across five innings Sunday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision. Both Miley and his defense were sloppy in the first inning with an error by Alex Bregman and wild pitch combining to allow an unearned run across the plate. Miley rebounded to allow only three singles in his next three innings, but was touched up in the fifth frame for two earned runs on a home run by Michael Chavis and RBI single by Xander Bogaerts. Overall, Miley managed to limit the damage in a tough matchup, though he fell short of six innings for only the second time in his last seven starts. He'll look to work deeper into the game in his next start, though he's currently scheduled to face Boston at home on Friday.
Miley will start Sunday against the Red Sox rather than Monday against the White Sox, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports. Miley was bumped up in the rotation thanks to an off day earlier in the week. It'll be his second start of the week as a result, though it's too late for owners in most formats to alter their plans. He'll lose his expected two-start week next week and will be forced to face a much tougher opponent.
Miley (4-2) allowed four runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and two walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Tigers on Tuesday. The veteran was a few outs away from a third straight quality start, but Miley tossed up a two-run homer in the sixth. It didn't cost him the victory, but it did mean his ERA jumped from 3.18 to 3.51 on the season. He is also 4-2 with a 1.15 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 51.1 innings over nine starts in 2019. His next outing is scheduled for Monday at home against the White Sox.
Miley (3-2) picked up the win against the Rangers on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on two hits over six innings, striking out seven and walking two as the Astros won 4-2. The left-hander was able to hurl a quality start and pick up his third win of the season while tying a season high with seven strikeouts. The 32-year-old hasn't posted lofty strikeout totals, with 30 in 45.1 innings, but he's provided solid ratios so far with a 3.18 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. He lines up to take the hill next on the road against the Tigers on Tuesday.
Miley (2-2) allowed two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Angels. Miley was provided with plenty of run support as the Astros scored at least one run in the first six innings of the game, pacing him to his second win of the season. While he struck out just two, Miley limited hard contact, holding the Angels to just one home run and one double. Though he won't be a strong source of strikeouts, Miley has a 3.20 ERA and 1.17 WHIP across 39.1 innings and seven starts this season. He'll likely draw his next start Thursday against the Rangers.
