SP - CHC - IL15
Chicago Cubs SP Wade Miley is set to finally make a rehab start Friday at Single-A South Bend, according to NBC Sports.
The veteran has only thrown 19 innings due to a lingering shoulder injury this year. Despite the injury, his track record of success paired with the fact that the Cubs are likely to be sellers at the trade deadline, means Miley could still be moved. He's still a couple rehab starts away from getting back to the bigs, but the crafty lefty could be a sneaky option late in the season for spot starts.
Wade Miley was able to play catch Tuesday.
Miley had just returned off the injured list and couldn't get through one start before he was placed on the injured list again on June 11 due to a left shoulder strain. He remains without a clear timetable, but it sounds like it won't be till after the All-Star break at this point.
The Chicago Cubs placed Wade Miley on the 15-day injured list with a left shoulder strain.
Miley had just been taken off the injured list and he'll now make another trip on it with the same injury. His timetable is unknown at the moment. Michael Rucker was recalled as the corresponding move.

It is a tough break for Miley, who had just been activated off the injured list with a left shoulder strain after missing 15 days. Miley had tossed three shutout innings before being forced to leave the game. We should get further word on his status relatively soon, but a return to the injured list seems very possible.

Manager David Ross had suggested that Miley would likely start at some point this weekend, but now we have confirmation that will be on Friday. He has a 3.38 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 3 starts this season.
