Miley (groin) allowed four earned runs over three innings in a start with Double-A Biloxi on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Miley has made two starts with Biloxi since returning to game action, and the results have not been pretty, as he has allowed 10 hits, six runs (four earned), and three home runs over 5.2 innings. He did throw the ball very well during the spring, though, which will help his cause when the Brewers decide whether to add him to the big-league roster or let him opt out of his contract at some point in the coming days.

Miley (groin) will throw 60 or more pitches in his next rehab start, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers were pleased with Miley's first rehab appearance Tuesday. He's set to increase his pitch count in his next one and could then be ready to return to the big leagues. With ERAs of 5.37 and 5.61 in the past two seasons, though, he's unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset even if he works his way into the rotation in Milwaukee.

Miley (groin) allowed two unearned runs on four hits with two strikeouts over 2.2 innings for Double-A Biloxi on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's an unofficial rehab start -- since he isn't on the 40-man roster -- for Miley, and was his first game appearance since tearing his groin March 21. The 31-year-old reached his pitch limit with 37 pitches and will likely need a few more starts to build up his stamina before the Brewers consider adding him to the big-league roster.

Miley (groin) is scheduled to start a minor-league game Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miley has not appeared in a game since injuring his groin late during the spring season, but barring any setbacks, he will do just that Tuesday in a game with Double-A Biloxi. Miley is expected to make a couple starts in the minors, after which the Brewers will need to add him to the big-league roster or allow him to opt out of his contract with the club.

Miley (groin) is scheduled for a bullpen session with Double-A Biloxi on Friday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a step in the right direction for the left-hander, as he hasn't been able to throw off a mound since tearing his groin on March 21. Miley still isn't expected to be back in full action until later in April since he still has to build back up to a starter's workload.

Miley (groin) is hoping to return to the mound sometime next week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miley is currently limited to playing catch while rehabbing with Double-A Biloxi. Once he's able to resume mound work, Miley will have to build back up to a starter's workload, so he'll likely be sidelined for another month or so. In the meantime, Brandon Woodruff will remain in the Brewers' rotation.

Miley (groin) will remain with the Brewers organization while rehabbing his injury over the next 2-to-4 weeks, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is on a minor-league deal that has major league incentives if he ultimately makes the 25-man roster. Because Miley is injured, his opt-out date has been pushed back until he can resume pitching. Look for the Brewers to start the season with either Brent Suter or Brandon Woodruff as their No.5 starter with Miley on the shelf until at least mid-April.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Miley (groin) won't throw for at least two weeks, meaning the southpaw won't crack the team's Opening Day rotation, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even if the discomfort in Miley's groin area completely subsides in the next two weeks, he would still likely require an additional two weeks beyond that to build up to the point of being ready to start games. As such, Miley is realistically looking at around a month-long absence, in a best-case scenario. The injury is inconvenient timing for a pitcher who making a compelling case for a spot in the Opening Day roster spot, and now muddles his future with the Brewers. If Miley isn't released before Saturday, he would be owed a $100,000 retention bonus while he continues to rehab under team supervision. It's also conceivable that the team could release Miley and re-sign him to another minor-league contract at a later date, though the Brewers would run the risk of him electing to sign with another club.

Miley's MRI showed a slight tear in his left groin after being diagnosed with a strain following Wednesday's game, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miley stated that he's unsure as to how long he might be sidelined and the club has yet to release any sort of timetable for the southpaw, but that may not be his most immediate hurdle at this point in time. First, the Brewers will have to decide if Miley is worth keeping on the roster, as he's set to receive a $100,000 retention bonus if he's still on the team by Saturday. Miley had been having an impressive camp with Milwaukee thus far, and said that he wants to remain with the club, but it seems unlikely that the team would add him to the big-league roster and the disabled list in the event that this injury forces him to miss an extended period of time. Expect an update on this situation in the coming days.

Miley was diagnosed with a strained left groin and is set to undergo an MRI, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miley suffered the injury while trying to field a bunt during Wednesday's Cactus League game against the A's. Miley appeared to be on the verge of earning a spot in the Brewers' Opening Day rotation, so this injury comes at an unfortunate time. The severity of the issue remains unclear at this point, but more should be known once his MRI results surface.
