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.
