Cubs' Wade Miley: To IL with shoulder strain
Miley was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a left shoulder strain, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

Cubs' Wade Miley: Set for re-examination Monday
Miley (shoulder) will be re-examined Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miley exited Friday's game against the Yankees after three innings due to left shoulder soreness after he spent time on the injured list with a similar issue prior to the matchup. The southpaw said after the game that he didn't want to predict whether he'd require another IL stint, but more information will likely be known after he's re-examined Monday. If he's cleared to make his next start, he tentatively lines up to take the mound at home against the Padres on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Exits with trainer
Miley was removed from Friday's game against the Yankees prior to the bottom of the fourth inning due to left shoulder soreness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miley was effective early in Friday's matchup, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out two in three scoreless innings. He threw 30 of his 42 pitches for strikes but was removed from the game after he was visited by a trainer while warming up in the middle of the fourth inning. The southpaw was activated from the injured list prior to Friday's start after missing nearly three weeks with a left shoulder strain, so it's concerning to see the issue pop up during his return to the mound. It's not yet clear whether Miley will require another trip to the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Reinstated for Friday's start
Miley (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start against the Yankees on Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Miley was sidelined for nearly three weeks with a strained left shoulder, but he'll rejoin the rotation Friday without requiring a minor-league rehab assignment. Miley may face some workload restrictions since he hasn't seen game action since May 22.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Returning from injured list Friday
Miley (shoulder) will be activated off the 15-day injured list to start Friday against the Yankees, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The left-hander missed the first month of the season with an elbow issue and made only three starts before heading back to the injured list with a shoulder strain, but he's poised to rejoin Chicago's rotation Friday. Miley didn't make any rehab starts this time around and hasn't pitched in a game since May 22, so he could face some workload limitations in his first game back from the injury.... See More ...

Cubs' Wade Miley: In consideration for weekend return
Manager David Ross said Wednesday that Miley (shoulder) is "definitely an option" to return during the Cubs' weekend series against the Yankees, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The Cubs haven't yet announced their rotation for their three-game series in New York, but Miley is eligible to return from the injured list Friday and will be in the mix to rejoin the rotation at Yankee Stadium. The southpaw has made three starts this season and has posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 16 innings.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Slated for another bullpen
Miley (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Sunday's throwing session will mark the second time Miley has thrown off a mound since landing on the injured list May 29, signaling that his shoulder strain doesn't seem to be a long-term concern. The southpaw apparently felt good following Thursday's bullpen session, and he'll likely progress to facing live hitters at next week as long as Sunday's bullpen goes smoothly.... See More ...

Cubs' Wade Miley: Gets back on mound
Miley (shoulder) was scheduled to throw a bullpen session earlier Thursday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The Cubs have yet to reveal how Miley felt coming out of the workout, but the fact that he isn't being shut down from throwing four days after landing on the injured list suggests that his strained left shoulder isn't a long-term concern. Chicago replaced Miley in the rotation with Matt Swarmer, who will pick up his second start in Saturday's doubleheader with the Cardinals after limiting the Brewers to four runs over six innings Monday in his MLB debut....

Cubs' Wade Miley: Goes back on IL
The Cubs placed Miley on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a left shoulder strain, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Miley won't be eligible to return from the IL until June 10 as a result of the shoulder strain, an injury the southpaw initially believed was a minor concern when he picked it up coming out of his most recent start May 22. The veteran made just three starts for the Cubs before succumbing to an injury that will send him to the shelf for the second time this season, after he previously opened the campaign on the IL while recovering from elbow inflammation. Chicago recalled Mark Leiter from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move, and he could be called upon to make a spot start when Miley's turn in the rotation comes up again in Monday's doubleheader with the Brewers....

Cubs' Wade Miley: Battling minor shoulder issue
Miley is day-to-day with a minor shoulder issue but believes he'll be able to avoid the injured list, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miley doesn't seem to have an official diagnosis, as the veteran lefty referred to his injury as "a little something." He felt better Saturday after playing catch, but whether or not the Cubs share his optimism about avoiding the injured list is not yet clear. If he's available, he could be asked to start one half of Monday's doubleheader against Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Quality start in no-decision
Miley didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-4 win against the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six innings.
Miley was given an early three-run lead and cruised through the first five innings but ran into trouble by allowing four baserunners with two out in the sixth that resulted in a tie game. The 35-year-old tossed a season-high 85 pitches but induced just five swinging strikes, and he's now recorded 10 strikeouts in 16 total innings. After a poor outing April 10, Miley has surrendered three runs in 13 innings over his last two starts and will look to keep rolling against the White Sox next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Cruises to first win
Miley (1-0) pitched seven shutout innings to earn the win Monday against the Pirates. He allowed just a single hit while striking out six.
Outside of a Michael Chavis single in the fifth inning, Miley was flawless in his second start of the season. The lefty allowed three runs across three innings in his 2022 debut Tuesday, so this was clearly a step in the right direction. Miley had been sidelined with an elbow injury and now appears to be fully healthy, going from 64 pitches in his first start to 83 on Monday, and he might have thrown more had the Cubs not been up 9-0 when he departed. The veteran will look to build on this promising performance in his next scheduled start Sunday against the Diamondbacks.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Struggles in 2022 debut
Miley didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 5-4 loss to San Diego, allowing three runs on five hits and five walks with one strikeout in three innings.
After being sidelined for the first month of the season with an elbow injury, Miley pitched poorly from the start. He surrendered five baserunners and two runs in the first then three baserunners and one run in the third, with all of the damage coming with two outs in both innings. The 35-year-old found the zone with only 37 of 64 pitches and induced just four swinging strikes. Miley will look to rebound in his next start, which tentatively lines up for next week against Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Tapped for Tuesday's start
Miley (elbow) will start Tuesday's game against the Padres, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miley looked solid in Thursday's rehab start at Triple-A, and the team has since decided that he's ready to return from the injured list. He's set for his first start of the 2022 campaign after missing time with left elbow inflammation.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Activated for Tuesday's start
Miley (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Tuesday in San Diego.
The veteran left-hander has been unavailable for the first month of 2022 while recovering from elbow inflammation, but he'll make his season debut Tuesday. Miley covered four scoreless frames during his lone rehab outing with Triple-A Iowa and figures to face some workload limitations in his first start of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Strong first rehab start
Miley (elbow) will throw a bullpen session in the coming days and the next step is to be determined, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
He threw four shutout innings while allowing two hits and zero walks with three strikeouts Thursday at Triple-A, so it would seem things are progressing in the right direction. Miley could be nearing a return to the big-league rotation, or he could make another rehab start.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Wade Miley: Rehab start set for Thursday
Miley (elbow) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Thursday, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Cubs have yet to announce which affiliate Miley will join, but he's been given the green light to pitch in a game after his left elbow checked out fine following Sunday's bullpen session and Tuesday's light catch session. Because he was sidelined for much of spring training with a neck issue before the elbow problem cropped up in early April, Miley will likely need at least two or three starts in the minors before he's deemed ready to return from the 10-day injured list....

Cubs' Wade Miley: Set to throw this weekend
Miley (elbow) will throw again at some point this weekend, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miley threw 46 pitches in a live batting practice session Wednesday, and it appears that he is feeling well one day after. After his weekend session, the team will move forward with the next step in his progression, which could be another live BP or even a minor-league rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
