RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Miley was traded to the Mariners before the 2016 season where he spent the majority of the year before being traded again, this time to the Orioles at the end of July. After logging over 190 innings in each of his previous four seasons, Miley was less durable during his age-29 campaign, and spent a few weeks on the disabled list with the Mariners. At the time he was traded to the Orioles, the veteran left-hander had posted a 4.98 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 112 innings. The move to the AL East wasn't kind to Miley, as he performed no better with the Orioles. In 11 starts with Baltimore, he posted a 6.17 ERA (3.79 FIP), 1.57 WHIP and a 55:15 K:BB over 54 innings. He also fell victim to a career-worst .328 BABIP and 69 percent left-on-base rate, which factor into his lower FIP. As the only lefty in the starting rotation, Miley will again be relied upon to eat innings for the Orioles in 2017, though his fantasy floor and ceiling are incredibly low.

2016

The Red Sox got the Wade Miley as advertised after trading for him and signing him to a three-year contract: a ground-ball inducing innings-eater that keeps his team in a game for six-plus innings. Miley was second on the staff with a 2.6 WAR (FanGraphs) and finished with a 4.46 ERA in 193.2 innings over 32 starts. His strikeout rate dropped, but so did his walk and home run rates. It wasnít always pretty, but Mileyís 11 wins led a staff that was dogged by a shoddy bullpen. He could get them into the seventh inning with a chance, but was supported by a bullpen that was a league-worst -1.4 WAR (FanGraphs) and allowed 1.4 HR/9. Miley was traded to the Mariners over the offseason, where he will earn the benefit of a more pitching-friendly ballpark than the one that he is leaving behind in Boston.

2015

Miley deserved a better fate in 2014. A stable skillset from his 3.55 ERA season in 2013 along with a career-best 21 percent strikeout rate shouldíve secured at least a repeat, but instead Miley suffered a couple implosion starts as well as some bad luck en route to a 4.34 ERA. The problem is that when heís bad, he is really bad because of his propensity for the long ball. The increased strikeout rate, the back-to-back years with a better than 50 percent groundball rate, and his durability are enough to be enticing. He has put together three straight years of sub-4.00 FIPs and when you neutralize his home run rate, the outlook is even brighter, but there is real concern that this is more of a flaw in the skillset than bad luck. He did manage to keep the ball in the yard in 2012, so itís not completely out of the question for him to do so again. Letís treat him as a speculative pick in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues with the potential for a lot more if it all comes together with Boston.

2014

Miley had another solid year in the desert to follow up his appearance on the National League All-Star team in 2012. Despite his 2.9 BB/9, most of his numbers either stayed virtually the same or regressed ever so slightly. A career-high 52 percent groundball rate is a good sign for someone who makes half his starts in Chase Field, and it was a significant improvement from his 2012 rate. Further, that ability to keep the ball in the yard helped offset an increase his walk rate, which jumped from 1.7 to 2.9 BB/9 last season. As it lines up, Miley is a lock for the middle of the Diamondbacks' 2014 rotation.

2013

Miley surprised many by locking down a place in the D-Backs' rotation before going on to make the National League All-Star Team and finish second in the Rookie of the Year voting to Bryce Harper. From start to finish, Miley was the best starter in the Arizona rotation last season, parlaying a career-low 1.7 BB/9 into a 3.33 ERA and 1.182 WHIP. Left-handed hitters put up a meager .200/.238/.292 line against Miley, and a big part of his success can be attributed to his ability to limit hard contact, and more specifically, home runs despite pitching half of his games at Chase Field. Throughout his time in the minors, Miley has consistently kept the ball in the park despite spending seasons in the California League and Pacific Coast League. All things considered, the reliance on contact and lack of dominant stuff make Miley a risky bet to repeat his rookie numbers, but he could remain undervalued in deeper formats thanks to the low strikeout rate (6.7 K/9) and seemingly modest upside.

2012

Miley was in the process of repeating his solid, albeit unspectacular 2010 season through 14 starts before things seemed to click for him after a promotion to Triple-A Reno. He carried a career-high 9.3 K/9IP over 54.1 innings with the Aces down the stretch while cutting his walk rate down to his 2009 level. The difference appeared to be aggressive hitters, as the opposition at Reno chased his pitches outside the strike zone at a 20 percent clip (more than double his rate at Mobile). Now 25, Miley figures to be a part of the D-Backs' plans in 2012, but it's likely that the organization's plethora of young pitching talent will lead him to a swing role in the near future. As a starter, he projects as a No. 4 or No. 5 type, but it may take a trade to keep him from bullpen duty in the long run.

2011

Miley has been old for his level throughout his minor league stops, but he didn't dissolve when the D-Backs subjected him to the Double-A acid test last season at age 23. In fact, his strikeout rate jumped (7.9 K/9IP) and his walk rate fell (3.5 BB/9IP) after his promotion to that level. Miley has always done a good job of keeping the ball in the park, a skill that will prove useful at Chase Field regardless of whether he remains a starter or eventually transitions to relief work. A big league debut in 2011 isn't out of the question, but a full-time rotation spot seems to be at least a full season away as he'll need to continue improving the consistency of his secondary offerings before he gets a look in Arizona.
