Miley (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Miley spent nearly a month on the injured list with a left shoulder strain, but he'll be available out of the bullpen for the final few games of the regular season. The southpaw worked out of the rotation prior to the injury, posting a 6.57 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 12.1 innings across four starts this year.
Miley (shoulder) threw in a simulated game Saturday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley has missed over three weeks with a shoulder strain. If his shoulder checks out fine following Saturday's session, he's expected to be activated soon, though he'll likely appear out of the bullpen given that he hasn't built his workload back up yet.
Miley (shoulder) has no specific return date after feeling soreness Thursday following a side throwing session, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Time is starting to run out on the season, but to that point, manager David Bell still expects Miley to pitch again this year. "Just some continued muscle soreness," Bell said. "Nothing overly concerning or anything that's going to knock him out for the year or anything like that. But we did need to back him off on his throwing, and really no timetable to get him back into the game, unfortunately."
Miley (shoulder) was sorer than anticipated following Wednesday's side session and isn't expected to return over the weekend, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Initial reports from Miley's throwing session were positive, but he's facing a delay in his return after feeling some soreness Thursday. Manager David Bell said that he doesn't expect him back over the weekend following his step back in his recovery. A timetable for his return hasn't yet been established.
Miley (shoulder) threw a side session Wednesday that went well, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley has been working his way back from a left shoulder strain that has kept him sidelined since Aug. 28. He threw a simulated game Friday, and manager David Bell said that he should return to the team soon following his successful side session. It's unclear when he'll take the mound for the Reds, but the southpaw's return appears to be imminent.
Miley (shoulder) will pitch a simulated game Friday at the Reds' alternate training facility at Prasco, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Manager David Bell suggested that Miley could rejoin the Reds on their current road trip, but didn't specify exactly when. That could become pertinent with Sonny Gray's next start getting pushed back.
Miley was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left shoulder strain, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The veteran southpaw delivered four scoreless innings on 64 pitches Thursday against the Brewers, and apparently the shortness of the outing was related to the injury. Miley doesn't have an official timeline for his return, but he'll be eligible to be activated Sept. 8. It's his second stint on the injured list this season, as he previously missed time with a groin injury.
Miley didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Brewers. He tossed four scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk while fanning three.
Miley had dropped his previous three appearances, so posting a scoreless outing should be a huge confidence booster for him. This was also his first scoreless outing of the season in four games.
Miley (0-3) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three in five innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.
Miley gave up a two-run single to Tommy Edman in the third inning and a solo shot to Harrison Bader in the fifth to account for the offense against him. Saturday was the first time this season that Miley has pitched past the second inning. He's got a 9.72 ERA, 2.40 WHIP and eight strikeouts in 8.1 innings. The 33-year-old lefty will continue searching for his first win when he faces the Cubs on Friday.
Miley (undisclosed) is expected to start Saturday in St. Louis, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley suffered a groin injury early in the season and appeared to suffer some sort of injury in his return from the injured list back on Aug. 12, as he seemed in some discomfort while covering first base in the second inning and exited shortly after. He's been able to have some extra rest due to a positive COVID-19 test cancelling a few games for the Reds, as his next start will come 10 days after his previous outing.
Miley allowed one run on two hits and two walks over 1.2 innings in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday. He struck out two batters.
As Mark Sheldon of MLB.com noted, Miley looked like he may have hurt himself covering first base on a groundout in the second inning. The lefty stayed in the game initially, but walked the next batter and was then lifted at 44 pitches. Miley was just making his return from a groin injury. Tyler Mahle endured some struggles of his own in relief of Miley on Wednesday, but Mahle pitched well as a starter during Miley's absence and it would be an easy switch for the Reds to make in their rotation, whether it be for performance or health reasons.
Miley (groin) was activated from the injured list as expected ahead of his scheduled start against the Royals on Wednesday.
Miley made just one awful start before landing on the injured list with a groin injury, allowing six runs (five earned) while recording just five outs. Joe Kuhnel was optioned in a corresponding move.
Miley (groin) will return from the injured list Wednesday to start against the Royals, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The veteran left-hander landed on the shelf with the groin injury after surrendering six runs (five earned) over 1.2 innings July 27 against the Cubs in his first start of the year. Miley had a 3.98 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 140:61 K:BB over 167.1 innings last season with the Astros.
Miley will be placed on the 10-day injured list with a groin injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley struggled in his season debut against the Cubs on Monday, and his injury designation could help provide an explanation for his lack of results. He'll officially be placed on the injured list Friday, which means that he'll miss his scheduled start for the weekend. As a result, Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) will start Saturday's contest with Tyler Mahle taking the mound Sunday.
Miley (0-1) took the loss Monday as the Reds fell 8-7 to the Cubs, coughing up six runs (five earned) on four hits and two walks over 1.2 innings. He struck out three.
A rain delay before the start of the game seemed to mess with Miley's focus, as he plunked Kris Bryant with his second pitch of the night and then walked Anthony Rizzo. The Cubs took advantage to score four runs in the first inning, and after they tacked on another in the second, Miley's night was done after 57 pitches (32 strikes). One bad start probably won't cost the veteran southpaw his spot in the rotation, but with Anthony DeSclafani (shoulder) set to come off the injured list this weekend, Miley may not be able to afford a second one.
Miley pitched four scoreless innings in Friday's intrasquad scrimmage, allowing two hits and three walks while striking out seven, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
It was interesting to see Miley matched up against Tyler Mahle, who could work in tandem with him during the regular season. Miley will be the Reds' fourth starter to begin the season, with his first start coming against the Cubs if everything goes according to plan.
Miley's spring training struggles continued Friday against the A's as he gave up four runs over 2.1 innings, allowing two hits and four walks, with the big blow coming on a two-run homer by Matt Olson.
So far this spring, Miley has a 17.18 ERA. The usual caveat about spring training stats applies, and it should be noted that the ball was flying out of the park Friday. Still, Miley finished 2019 poorly with the Astros, so some positive performances from him this spring would be reassuring for anyone looking to add him -- or already has added him -- to their fantasy squad.
Miley agreed to a two-year, $15 million contract with Cincinnati on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
He could find himself in the No. 4 spot in the rotation with Luis Castillo, Trevor Bauer and Sonny Gray (elbow) likely filling the first three slots. The Reds have arguably the best rotation in the NL Central, although Miley is the lone southpaw. He enjoyed a 14-6 record in 2019 with the Astros, posting a 3.98 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with a 140:61 K:BB over 167.1 innings. Tyler Mahle probably gets squeezed into a swingman role, barring an injury or a trade.
Miley is not on the Astros' ALCS roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Miley struggled in his only appearance in the ALDS, allowing three runs (two earned) off four hits and one walk while recording one strikeout in 2.2 innings pitched. The Astros elected to carry a pitching staff of only right-handers heading into the ALCS, leaving the southpaw off the roster for the series.
Miley is on the Astros' ALDS roster.
Miley's 3.98 ERA on the season is perfectly respectable, but he fell off hard down the stretch, posting a 16.68 ERA and a 3.09 WHIP in five September starts. The Astros' haven't announced their rotation plans for a possible Game 4, but Miley's late struggles could mean he loses out to Jose Urquidy for that start.
