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.

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.

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.

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.
