Miley (2-2) pitched a five-hit shutout while striking out four Saturday against the Royals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley completely silenced the Royals' bats and received plenty of run support in an easy win for the Mariners. He came into this game having allowed 18 earned runs over 23 innings of work, but his masterful effort lowered his ERA to 5.06. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Astros.

Miley (1-2) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over 7.1 innings to earn the win Sunday at the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley was provided a four-run lead in the first inning, but fortunately the offense was able to put up an additional three runs to get him the victory. After three brutal outings, this was easily his best performance of the season, and it lowered his ERA a full run to 7.04. He'll make his next start Saturday at the Royals.

Miley (0-2) allowed three runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out two over 3.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday at Cleveland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley was fortunate that the Mariners' defense turned double plays in each of the first three innings, as he allowed 13 baserunners, but only three of them scored. He's been blasted in each of his three starts and his WHIP now stands at 1.91. He'll look to turn things around in his next start Sunday at the Angels.

Miley (0-1) was once again roughed up by the Rangers on Tuesday, taking a loss after surrendering six earned runs on 10 hits in six innings despite striking out seven with no walks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley hasn't enjoyed facing Texas in his first two starts, carrying a bloated 8.25 ERA despite a stellar 14 strikeouts and no walks. He's always been hittable, but the former Boston and Arizona pitcher is unlikely to keep getting slapped around to this extent if he continues to maintain an elite K/BB ratio. Miley will be relieved to finally face a different foe when he travels to Cleveland next Tuesday.

Miley threw six innings, allowing five runs, seven hits and no walks while striking out seven and taking a no-decision in Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After working through a bit of trouble in the second inning, Miley cruised forward through the fifth by retiring nine straight hitters. The wheels came off in the bottom of the sixth when two Rangers led off the inning with singles before Prince Fielder blasted a 449-foot three-run home run. Miley's seven strikeouts and no walks left plenty of room for optimism going forward. The 29-year-old right-hander will take the hill against the Rangers once again in his next start Tuesday.

Miley will be the third starter in the rotation this season, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This was expected, but manager Scott Servais confirmed it Monday. Miley had a quiet spring training, but he had 11 strikeouts to three walks in 16 innings. He's an innings-eater, pitching at least 190 innings the last four years. If he does that again, the Mariners will be pleased.

Miley gave up three runs in his second spring start, all in the second inning, striking out one and walking none in three innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley was perfect in the first and third innings and said his trouble in the second inning stemmed from working on certain pitches. "I was trying to work on fastballs in, sinkers in, trying to get them to come back," Miley told the Seattle Times. "They were coming back more than I'd like." Miley is slated to be the second or third starter in the rotation this season.

Miley was traded to the Mariners on Monday in exchange for Roenis Elias and Carson Smith, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Miley struggled in his lone year in Boston after being traded there last offseason to the tune of a 4.46 ERA, though he got better as the season went on. His strikeout numbers and ratios fell in his first season in the American League, but the 29-year-old should benefit from a move to the pitcher friendly environment of Safeco Field.

Miley gave up four runs on nine hits and four walks in five innings against the Yankees on Wednesday. He struck out three.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The lefty was long gone by the time this game was decided in 11 innings. Miley appropriately ended yet another unimpressive campaign by giving up at least four runs for the 13th time in 32 outings. He also failed to reach the 200-inning mark after doing so in the last two seasons despite pitching at least six innings in 10 straight outings prior to Wednesday's game.

Miley (11-11) gave up four runs on eight hits over 6.1 innings in a loss to the Rays on Thursday. He struck out three and walked one.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After three consecutive quality starts, Miley returned to normality in this one, delivering the sort of mediocrity fantasy owners have come to expect from him. He's improved his control a bit this year, but it's come at the cost of strikeouts, and the lefty's high-WHIP ways don't do him any favors. If the Boston rotation stays on schedule, he'll make two more starts this season.
