Miley will start the regular season on the disabled list, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander is a bit behind the other pitchers after being hit in the shoulder by a comebacker earlier in the spring and then being sidelined by an illness later. This will allow the Orioles to stash him on the DL until they need him to start on Sunday April 9 and carry 11 relievers until then. Miley is expected to be completely healthy when that day comes around, but for the time being, he'll bide his time on the disabled list.

Miley, who was scratched from his last start due to illness, threw on Thursday's off-day and could make his next start in a minor league game, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Buck Showalter said the lefty was fatigued toward the end of his throwing session, so maybe Miley isn't quite 100 percent just yet. Either way, it was a positive sign to see the 30-year-old back at work. Miley should have time to squeeze in at least one more Grapefruit League outing to go along with a minor league start before Opening Day.

Miley (illness) feels a lot better Tuesday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was scratched from Monday's start due to an illness, but it sounds like he will be back on the hill very soon. Despite logging a 6.17 ERA in 11 starts for the Orioles last season, Miley is a cinch to start 2017 back in the rotation, especially with Chris Tillman (shoulder) out indefinitely. While he really struggled to prevent runs last season, his 55:15 K:BB and 3.34 xFIP in 54 innings with Baltimore suggests he could rebound somewhat this year.

Miley has been scratched from his start on Monday due to an illness, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't seem like anything overly serious, but manager Buck Showalter will clarify Miley's status before Monday's game against the Red Sox. Consider him day-to-day in the meantime.

Miley was handed a loss in Tuesday's game against the Rays as he allowed three earned runs over three innings.

EDGE Analysis

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reported that Miley was feeling somewhat sick, but was feeling well enough to pitch. Even if he'd been feeling at his best, seeing Miley put on a subpar showing wouldn't come as much of a surprise. During the 2016 season he threw for a 5.37 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, marking the third consecutive season that he posted marks above 4.30 and 1.35, respectively.

Miley -- making his first start since being hit with a line drive that forced him out of Friday's game -- pitched three scoreless innings, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out three Blue Jays in Wednesday's Grapefruit League contest.

EDGE Analysis

Miley's third start of the spring was far and away his best. He was crushed by the Pirates in his last outing, but bounced back nicely with a near-flawless performance Wednesday. In fairness, it's worth noting that the Jays' lineup didn't have one starting big leaguer penciled in it, but at least Miley did what should be expected under such circumstances. He'll begin the 2017 campaign at the end of the O's rotation, and the veteran will need a strong spring to feel a sense of job security heading into Opening Day.

Miley says he is alright after getting hit by a line drive in Friday's game and left only as a precaution, Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Miley says the ball simply grazed his ribs and that he would have stayed in the game had it been the regular season. It's good news for the veteran lefty, who should return to normal pitching activities within the coming days. Miley has been diligently working on his mechanics after a down season in 2016, so expect him to see plenty of spring ball action before the season begins.

Miley was hit in the shoulder area by a line drive in Friday's Cactus League game and was forced to leave the game, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a scary situation for Miley, who was immediately escorted to the clubhouse by a trainer. The southpaw is considered a back-end starter this season for Baltimore, despite posting a 6.17 ERA in 11 starts with the O's last season. Monitor the situation going forward, but consider him day-to-day for now.

Miley says he's regained his command and believes a full spring training with the Orioles will allow him to have more success with the team in 2017, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

After spending half of 2016 searching for a lefty, the O's landed Miley in a trade with the Mariners. He went 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 11 starts with his newest club, but finished the campaign strong. Miley allowed just four runs over his last 18.2 innings while striking out 23 and only issuing two walks. "I didn't have very good command," he said. "My last few starts, I started commanding the baseball a little bit better and the results were more what I wanted. Command's a big thing." The 30-year-old played his first four seasons in Arizona, before moving through three organizations over the past two years. Miley said he feels settled and able to focus now on moving forward with a team that has confidence in him.

Miley didn't factor into the decision against the Yankees on Saturday but struck out nine while also giving up three earned runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings.

EDGE Analysis

That's back-to-back encouraging outings for the veteran southpaw, whose 2016 has been a veritable rollercoaster. Miley closes out the regular season by surrendering only four earned runs over the 14.2 innings encompassing his last two starts, while mowing down an impressive 20 hitters over that span. Although his 9-13 record and 5.37 ERA this season leave much to be desired, he could play an important role in the postseason if given the opportunity, given his recent performances.
