Bats: L, Throws: L

Wade Miley lasted only five innings Wednesday night against the Yankees surrendering four earned runs on nine hits and four walks. Miley also struck out three. Despite the poor showing Miley did not factor in to the decision as the Red Sox went on to win in the 11th inning.

Fantasy Impact: Although the Yankees are probably a bad match-up for Miley, this was a prime example of why its hard to trust him week in week out as a fantasy pitcher. Yes he can put up some innings with the occasional decent strikeout total, but once he starts walking guys the wheels come right off. Miley should only be on your 2016 draft lists in the deepest of formats.

Wade Miley managed 6.1 innings against the Rays Thursday night allowing four earned runs on eight hits and one walk. Miley also picked up three strikeouts. The loss brings Miley's record to an even 11-11 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Although he has been pitching better as of late (3.86 ERA in his last seven starts), this is more or less who Wade Miley is. He will give you some innings, but will surrender plenty of hits and his fare share of runs along the way. Miley should only be on your radar heading into next year in the deepest of leagues.

Wade Miley strikes out seven

Wade Miley managed 6.2 innings against the high powered Blue Jays Saturday only surrendering two earned runs. Miley managed to limit the damage while allowing five walks and three hits. Although Boston won the game, Miley did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact: In his previous six starts Miley issued as many walks total (5) as he did in Saturday's outing against the Jays. He did however manage to post his third consecutive start of three ER or less with a respectable KO rate (20 K's over 22.2 innings). Starting Miley at this point in the season is a bit of a desperation play depending on your format, but if its a choice you're facing then Miley has at least been trending in the right direction.

Wade Miley tossed seven innings Friday night in Tampa allowing three earned runs on seven hits and zero walks while recording five strikeouts. Miley left in line for the win, but was thwarted when the bullpen allowed five runs in the eighth.

Fantasy Impact: There was some question as to how Miley would perform coming off of his first complete game against the Phillies. And while things were a little dicey at first with Miley allowing all three of his earned runs in the first inning, he did ultimately settle in for another solid start. Despite the two good starts in a row, Miley still has a habit of allowing a lot of hits and runs and is probably not some one you want to count on this time of year.

Wade Miley pitches complete game

Wade Miley threw a complete game Saturday against the Phillies allowing only two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out eight. The win brings Miley's record to 11-10 on the year.

Fantasy Impact: This was Wade Miley at his best as he was unhittable for the majority of the game. However, as nice of a game as this was for Miley he is still a pitcher who is going to give some hits and some runs while piling up the innings along the way. Be happy with performances like Saturday's but don't expect that to be a regular occurrence.

Sunday against the Mets, Wade Miley surrendered four earned runs on nine hits and one walk over six innings while striking out six. Miley did not factor in the decision.

Fantasy Impact: Well, Wade Miley continued to do Wady Miley things by giving up some runs on quite a few hits over 6-7 innings of work. And while its work that the Red Sox will likely take as a back-end piece of their rotation, its not the kind of consistency that you would want to rely on for your fantasy team unless playing in the deepest of leagues.

Tuesday against the White Sox, Boston starter Wade Miley surrendered five earned runs on 13 hits and one walk over 6.2 innings. Miley also recorded three strikeouts. The loss brings Miley's record to 10-10 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: You should never get mad at a duck for quacking, because that's what ducks do. Similarly you can't get mad at Wade Miley for giving up hits, because that's what Wade Miley does. Especially once Miley crosses that 100 pitch mark which he did in the seventh inning of Tuesday's loss when he surrendered three of his five ERs. Had interim manager Torey Lovullo kept Miley in the dugout for the seventh, this write-up might about how Miley won his 11th game instead of taking his 10th loss.

Wade Miley earns his 10th win

Thursday against the Royals, Wade Miley pitched 7.1 innings allowing only one run on six hits without a single walk. Miley also struck out six. The win brings Miley's record to 10-9.

Fantasy Impact: Thursday's start against the Royals was Miley's second in a row of seven or more innings. It also dropped his August ERA to a very respectable 3.33 which a nearly a full two runs better than his July ERA. If Miley can keep up this level of performance he could be worth a look in deeper leagues to help add some depth for a playoff run.

Wade Miley allowed just two runs with four strikeouts and one walk in 6.2 innings Sunday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley rebounded nicely from giving up seven runs in his last start. Miley has been stronger of late with seven quality starts in his last 10 games. Miley is not consistent enough to be owned in standard leagues but would be a good grab in deeper leagues.

Wade Miley crashed back to earth Tuesday, allowing seven runs in 5.2 innings against the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: It had looked like Wade Miley had turned things around this season giving up only one earned run in his last two starts. But he showed he still can't be trusted after the performance Wednesday against the White Sox. Start Miley with caution.

Wade Miley yielded four hits and one run in six innings Thursday against the Astros. He struck out four and walked five in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley has had back to back quality starts since the All-Star break. He did not win either game as the Red Sox are struggling to score runs. He is hard to trust as he walk rate is high as he has 44 in 114 1/3 innings this year. Miley should only be owned in deeper fantasy leagues.

Wade Miley had a no-hitter for six innings and ended up allowing one hit over seven scoreless innings Friday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley has been wildly inconsistent this year. In five starts he has given up no runs, yet his ERA stands at 4.49 for the season. Until Miley can show consistency fantasy owners should beware.

Wade Miley walks seven

Wade Miley only managed five innings Thursday in Toronto. Miley allowed four earned runs on seven hits and seven walks while only recording two strikeouts. Despite all the base runners Miley did manage to earn the win behind Boston's eight run first inning.

Fantasy Impact: Miley had been on a bit of a mini-roll lately having only allowed two earned runs over his last 12 innings prior to his outing in Toronto. However, allowing 14 base runners in five innings is not going to do much to continue that trend. Despite Miley's recent successes, his inconsistency makes him a very difficult start right now in any format.

Wade Miley continues to roll

Mon, Jun 22nd 1:19pm EDT

Wade Miley scattered five hits and three walks over six shutout innings for the win Sunday against the Royals. He also picked up two strikeouts over his 101 pitches. Miley's record is now 7-6 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Miley has settled into a nice groove for the Red Sox as of late having now allowed two earned runs or less in six of his last eight starts. That has helped bring Miley's ERA down into the almost livable range of 4.50. His WHIP is still to high (1.29 over last seven games) and his KO's are nothing to get excited about (52 thru 78 IP), but its certainly encouraging that Miley seems to be settling in to his new digs. Miley would still need to go on a serious hot streak to merit more fantasy consideration than just a spot on your scout team.

Tuesday against the Braves, Red Sox starter Wade Miley rebounded from his previous poor start to post 6.1 solid innings. Over the course of his start Miley allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice bounce back start for Miley who was roughed up in four innings of truncated work in his last start against the scorching hot Orioles. Over his last seven starts, Miley is 5-2 with a 3.53 ERA, so there are some signs of progress. His numbers would be even more impressive if not for two of his last four starts in which he only managed four innings and five earned runs a piece. Miley may be working his way into being a serviceable two-start option when the match-ups are right.

Thursday against the Orioles, Wade Miley allowed five earned runs by way of nine hits and no walks over four innings. He struck out three while surrendering three home runs. Miley's ERA now stands at 5.07 on the season

Fantasy Impact: Things got ugly in a hurry for Miley who was seen arguing with manager John Farrell after being informed that he was being lifted with only 69 pitches through four innings. Miley has now allowed five earned runs in four innings over two of his last three starts. Its unlikely that Miley will find himself out of the Boston rotation any time soon, but he should be miles away from yours.

Wade Miley struggled in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits in just four innings.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley looked good up until the fourth inning when things got out of hand against the Rangers and gave up four runs in the inning. Miley had been pitching well for the month of May and this loss snaps a four game winning streak. But similar to the rest of the Boston staff it is hard to trust Miley to be consistent.

Wade Miley hurled a strong start in a 6-1 win over the Angels on Sunday, tossing eight innings of one-run ball and allowing just four hits.

Fantasy Impact: In April, Wade Miley had a horrible start with the Red Sox posting a 8.62 ERA in five starts for the month. May has been just the opposite as Miley has a 3.04 ERA over 26 2/3 innings. The biggest difference is Miley is finding the strike zone and walking less batters. The way he is currently pitching he is worth looking at if he is on the waiver wire in any leagues.

Wade Miley gave up two runs on seven hits across seven innings pitched in Tuesday's win over Texas.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley pitched one of his best games of the season on Tuesday against the Rangers. After a disastrous start to the season in April, Miley is settling down and having a solid May and has a 3.04 ERA with 19 strikeouts and six walks in four starts this month.

Wade Miley allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out eight in Friday night's loss to the Blue Jays. He tossed 104 pitches (64 strikes) and threw first-pitch strikes to 18 of 26 batters faced.

Fantasy Impact: The positive sign of Wade Miley's outing is that he is throwing strikes and did strike out eight Blue Jays. Miley's ERA actually dropped to 6.91 after this outing. He has a rough start to the year and should not be trusted in any fantasy leagues at this time.

Wade Miley turned in a quality start Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits in seven innings, striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: After getting crushed in his last start Wade Miley needed an outing like this to get back on track. His numbers still look horrible after five starts with a 7.15 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 13:11 K:BB ratio. Miley is not ownable as he cannot be trusted to consistently throw quality starts.

Wade Miley gets crushed on Sunday

Mon, Apr 27th 9:18am EDT
By John Aubin

Wade Miley was rocked in Baltimore on Sunday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on five hits and two walks against the Orioles; he did not strike out a batter.

Fantasy Impact: Similar to the rest of the Red Sox rotation, Wade Miley is alternating between good and bad starts. Sunday was definitely a bad one for Miley as he struggled with his control. His ERA is now 8.62 for the season. His next start is a tough matchup against the Yankees. If there is a better option on the waiver wire drop Miley.

Tuesday against the Rays, Boston left-hander Wade Miley pitched 5.2 innings without allowing a single run. He threw 88 pitches in the outing surrendering three hits and four walks while recording three strikeouts. Miley also earned his first win.

Fantasy Impact: While it wasn't the kind of performance that will ignite a waiver wire bidding war, Miley's outing Tuesday was none the less encouraging. Two numbers to keep an eye on going forward are his innings and his walks. If you see the innings go up and the walks go down, Miley may wind up as a valuable fantasy contributor by seasons end.

Wednesday against the Nationals, Wade Miley was roughed up to the tune of seven earned runs over 2.1 innings. He allowed five hits, three walks and a home run while only recording one strikeout. His ERA currently stands at 10.57 through 2 starts.

Fantasy Impact: Its not as if anyone was counting on Miley as the anchor of their fantasy staff, but even those who took late round fliers on him have to be concerned. You never want to overreact to one or two starts, but if you find yourself having to choose between keeping Miley and grabbing a hot player off the waiver wire don't be afraid to make a move.

After his start with the AAA team on Tuesday, Wade Miley said that he planned on making his first start for the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium presumably on April 10th. Otherwise, Miley continued his strong spring going 6.2 innings and allowing 1 run on 4 hits against the Twins AAA squad. (Source: Rob Bradford - WEEI)

Fantasy Impact: Don't read too much into Miley starting at the AAA camp Tuesday. Boston's scheduled Major League game was against the Rays, and the team did not want to expose him to a division rival any more than necessary. Depending on the outcome of Boston's catching situation Miley could be a good source Wins (bostered by a strong offense) and some K's with an average ERA and a WHIP you can live with.

Wade Miley threw his 6 scheduled innings Thursday against the Twins. He allowed 3 ER on 4 hits and a walk while striking out 4.

Fantasy Impact: Miley should benefit from Boston's infield defense which figures to be quite a bit better than Arizona's was in 2014. You can expect a ton of innings from Miley along with a decent ERA and some K's. Just know that a high WHIP is likely in store as well.


Category: , Game Recaps

Saturday against the Pirates Wade Miley cruised through his scheduled 5 innings allowing only 2 hits and 2 walks without giving up any runs. He aslo sat down 5 by way of the K.

Fantasy Impact: Miley has the potential to pile up a lot of innings for Boston in 2015. That makes him an appealing option in points leagues since you can get him for cheap and use him as your 4th or 5th starter.


Category: , Game Recaps

On Monday, Wade Miley went 3 innings against the Cardinals giving up 3 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 2 and didn't allow a run.

Fantasy Impact: Wade Miley would have been a decent option for K's (184 in 201.1 IP) in 2014 if not for a 4.34 ERA and a 1.401 WHIP. The DBacks atrocious defense had something to do with that, but with an FIP at 3.98 in both 2013 and 2014 there's more to the story. Boston's infield defense should help the groundball pitcher somewhat, but you'll still want to keep an eye on Miley's walk rate this spring before taking a late round flier on him.

Wade Miley signs three year, $19.25 million contract with Red Sox avoiding arbitration hearing. (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Red Sox were able to get Miley to sign a team friendly contract for the next three years and avoid arbitration. Miley should be the third or fourth starter in Boston's rotation. After a strong 2013 season with Arizona, Miley struggled last year with the Diamondbacks who decided to part ways with him and trade him to Boston. Miley is currently ranked pretty low in fantasy rankings and could be a steal later in drafts. Miley still has upside and could have strong season with a great Red Sox coaching staff.

Fantasy Impact: The Red Sox continue to retool their starting rotation with the addition of southpaw Wade Miley. The 28-year-old performed modestly in Arizona last year, but showed a much improved strikeout rate and fell victim to the league's second highest HR/FB rate. In an improved pitching enviornment, look for an improvement in Miley's HR/FB%, and Miley to become someone that fantasy owners will want to keep tabs on.

Fantasy Impact: Not even 24 hours after losing free agent starting pitcher Jon Lester, the Red Sox have made a move to bring Miley to Fenway. Going from the NL West to the AL East will certainly be a hurdle to get over, but Miley's durability over the past three seasons give him a good chance to be a middle of the rotation starter that can contribute a healthy amount of strikeouts in the fantasy world.


The Diamondbacks tendered a contract to starting pitcher Wade Miley. All six arbitration-eligible players were offered a contract and the two sides will exchange proposed salary figures for the 2015 season on Jan. 16 and, if necessary, arbitration hearings are scheduled to take place from Feb. 1-21. (Source: Steve Gilbert)

Fantasy Impact: Miley was the only thing reliable about the Dbacks’ pitching rotation last season. After logging 200+ innings in consecutive seasons, Miley’s ERA increased to an ugly 4.34, but he also increased his strikeouts to a career high 183 -- good for the 12th best in the NL. With Patrick Corbin and Jeremy Hellickson set to be a part of the rotation, it might not be Wade’s world anymore in Phoenix, but he could supply some much needed strikeouts in the fantasy world.
