Miley (4-2) pitched a no-hitter versus Cleveland on Friday. He walked one and struck out eight in the win.
Miley's bid for a perfect game ended in the sixth inning when Cleveland's Amed Rosario reached on an error. Two batters later, Miley walked Cesar Hernandez, but he rebounded well over the final three frames. The 34-year-old southpaw needed 114 pitches (72 strikes) to complete the historic feat. He's been effective this year with a 2.00 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 36 innings. Miley is projected to face the Pirates in a favorable matchup next week.
Miley (3-2) picked up the win in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Cubs, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three.
The veteran southpaw gave up runs in each of the first two innings, but Miley settled down afterward and benefited from another offensive eruption by the Reds. He exited after throwing 99 pitches (61 strikes), and he'll take a 2.67 ERA and 19:7 K:BB through 27 innings into his next outing.
Miley (2-2) allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across six innings to take the loss Saturday against St. Louis.
Miley got off to a shaky start, as he allowed three singles and one earned run in the first inning. However, he rebounded to turn in another strong outing by letting only three more hitters reach base across his next five frames of work. Despite punching out only 16 batters across 22 innings, Miley has maintained a strong 2.45 ERA to this point in the season. He's projected to draw his next start Friday against the Cubs.
Miley fell to 2-1 after he surrendered four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Cleveland.
According to Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Miley was ejected after complaining from the dugout about a strike call on teammate Jesse Winker, but the southpaw's day was already done at that point. After shutting out the opposition over his first 11 innings of the season, Miley's scoreless streak was snapped when Jose Ramirez took him deep for a two-out, solo home run in the top of the first inning. Miley would later serve up another three-run bomb in the fourth inning, which was all the offensive support Cleveland ace Shane Bieber would need to lead his side to the victory column.
Miley (2-0) continued his dominant form in Monday's 3-0 win over the Giants, as he didn't allow a run through five innings and struck out three while only allowing two hits and a walk.
Miley has yet to top 80 pitches in either of his first two starts of the season, as manager David Bell seems to be taking a cautious approach with the 34-year-old after he's been limited to just six starts over the last two years due to various injuries. Miley has been smooth through his first two starts, allowing no runs on just four hits while sporting a 9:2 K:BB across 11 innings. He typically doesn't rely on strikeouts to get through his outings and has found success in the past by inducing soft contact. Miley's next scheduled to go head-to-head with one of the game's best in the Indians' Shane Bieber on Sunday.
Miley (1-0) cruised against the Pirates on Tuesday, throwing six scoreless innings while striking out six, giving up two hits and one walk to pick up the win in a 14-1 rout.
The Reds' bats exploded in support of Miley on Tuesday, making this a chance for an easy win, which he capably converted. He'll get his next turn in the rotation Monday against the Giants.
Miley threw 65 pitches and four simulated innings in a live batting practice session Tuesday to stay on schedule for his turn in the rotation, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley is locked into a rotation slot to begin the season, at least as long as he stays healthy -- he had a scare with a hamstring cramp earlier in March and missed time with multiple injuries last season. The Reds don't plan on going with a four-man rotation in April even though they have four off days early on, so Miley should take his regular turns once the season gets going.
Miley (hamstring) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday and will start Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley left his previous start with a left hamstring injury, but he said he wasn't concerned and that his removal was purely precautionary. That optimism seems accurate, as he'll remain on schedule Tuesday and should be set to take his place near the back of the Opening Day rotation.
Miley isn't concerned about the hamstring issue that caused him to be pulled Thursday against the White Sox, calling his removal purely precautionary, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Miley had already gotten in his intended number of pitchers, so he doesn't think the injury will affect his spring buildup in any meaningful way. Players are typically on the optimistic side regarding their own health, but if Miley is able to take his next turn on the mound then there likely won't be any reason to fear for his readiness for Opening Day.
Miley was pulled from Thursday's spring-training contest with a hamstring injury, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Miley was seen pointing to his left leg while meeting with trainers as he was being pulled from the game. The severity of the injury remains unknown, but it could affect his ability to ramp up in time for the regular season.
Miley exited Thursday's spring training game with an apparent left leg injury, Charlie Goldsmith of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Miley was seen pointing to his left leg upon exiting the game. He exited the ballpark with a trainer but was walking under his own strength without a limp. Miley was seemingly locked into a rotation role, though it's unclear whether the injury will affect his status for the regular season.
When describing the Reds' rotation in advance of spring training, GM Nick Krall considered Miley the fourth starter, with there being a competition between Michael Lorenzen, Tejay Antone, Jose De Leon and Jeff Hoffman for the fifth starter's job, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "Right now, Luis (Castillo), Sonny (Gray) and Tyler Mahle are probably the first three starters," Krall said. "And then you've got Wade Miley, who has been a starter his whole career."
Miley might have a head start over those other starters, and that he hasn't been a reliever much in his career probably helps, but he'll have to perform right away to hold them off. He's coming off a season ruined by multiple injuries.
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.
