Miley (3-5) gave up four runs en route to taking the loss at home Thursday against the Indians. He allowed eight hits and two walks while notching three strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

While it was far from a disastrous outing from Miley, he was inefficient and hittable once again. His inability to get through at-bats quickly drove his pitch count up to 111 in just 5.0 innings. His home splits still look solid on the surface (3.09 ERA, 31 K in 35.0 innings), but his 1.54 WHIP suggests he's had some luck in stranding runners at a high rate. Miley has also allowed at least four runs in each of his last three home starts. He's lined up to face the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday for his next start.

Miley (3-4) allowed six runs -- five earned -- on six hits and four walks while striking out eight batters through 5.2 innings during Saturday's win over St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Miley certainly wasn't sharp, but Baltimore scored nine runs through the first two innings of the game, so the southpaw was able to put it in cruise control and collect his third win of the year. His 4.29 ERA and 1.61 WHIP aren't moving the fantasy needle, but he could prove to be a valuable contributor in the wins and strikeouts columns going forward. Miley sports an 8.3 K/9 for the year and has potential as a streaming option or low-priced flier in daily contests. A difficult home date against Cleveland is on tap for Miley, though.

Miley (2-4) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks over 2.1 innings in a loss to the White Sox on Monday. He did not record a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

Miley served up a two-run homer to Kevan Smith in the second inning and then really unraveled in the third, allowing four runs on five hits before being lifted. He has now failed to complete three innings in back-to-back starts, with his ERA jumping more than a full run (from 2.82 to 3.97) in that span. The lefty will look to begin righting the ship this weekend at home against the Cardinals.

Miley (2-3) gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over 2.2 innings but escaped with a no-decision in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He threw just 46 of his 83 pitches for strikes before being lifted in the third inning with runners on first and second, but long reliever Mike Wright was able to prevent any further damage being added to Miley's ledger. The veteran hurler has been alternating solid starts with bad ones over the last few weeks, but he could have trouble keeping that pattern going Monday on the road against a White Sox team that leads the league in wOBA against left-handers at .357.

Miley (2-3) pitched seven innings of one-run ball Thursday, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out three to capture the win against Boston.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander pitched into the seventh inning in just two of his first eight starts in 2017. Miley's now accomplished that in two of his last three outings. Furthermore, the veteran has begun slowly chipping away at his career-worst walk rate (12.2). Even with the large number of free passes being handed out, Miley will take a career-best 2.82 ERA into his next start Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Miley fail to win any of his five May starts, posting a 3.97 ERA and a brutal 13:12 K:BB over 22.2 innings.

EDGE Analysis

The southpaw's numbers took a big hit compared to his April marks. In the campaign's opening month, opposing hitters managed a paltry .185 BAA, but they tagged Miley for a .313 average in May. Furthermore, his strikeout rate dropped from 29.7 to 12.0 percent once the calendar flipped. Even so, the 30-year-old's 3.02 ERA and 8.6 K/9 through 10 games are career-best marks. Then again, Miley's 85.1 percent strand rate is significantly higher than his career 71.9 percent mark, and his 4.78 FIP is his worst since becoming a full-time starter in 2012.

Miley (1-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out just two batters through five innings during Saturday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

With Houston sporting the best record in the majors, this was a daunting start for Miley, and it was also just the third time all season that he's allowed more than two runs in an outing. He currently sports an impressive 3.02 ERA and 8.6 K/9, but his 1.51 WHIP and 4.78 FIP suggest there are likely rougher times ahead. Miley lines up for another tall task against Boston in his next start.

Miley (1-2) was the tough-luck loser after allowing just three unearned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three Blue Jays over seven innings Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Baltimore committed a season-high three errors, including second baseman Jonathan Schoop's costly first-inning miscue that led to a three-run homer. Through nine starts, Miley owns a career-best 2.59 ERA and 9.1 K/9. That's been offset by a career-worst 5.2 BB/9, but overall it's been a successful start to 2017 for the left-hander. He'll toe the rubber for his next start Saturday against Houston.

Miley allowed four earned runs on eight hits and four walks in a win over Detroit Tuesday. He struck out three and received a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

Much like last week's outing, Miley labored to get through five innings, throwing 109 pitches; the four walks didn't help matters. He now has 27 walks through just eight starts, a number which definitely isn't in line with his 3.02 ERA on the season. The strikeout stuff is where his real fantasy value has come into play this season (9.9 K/9), but he didn't have it Tuesday. He'll take the mound again on Sunday at home against Toronto.

Miley held the Nationals to two runs over five innings Wednesday, but it took him 119 pitches to do it. He struck out five, walked four and allowed five hits.

EDGE Analysis

Miley's been one of this season's most bizarre fantasy arms, as he owns a stunning 2.45 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 36.2 innings, but he's also walked 23 batters. His starts have vacillated between utter dominance and surprising effectiveness, but Miley's due for some regression: his strand rate is high at 87.9 percent, while his FIP and xFIP are both more than a full run higher than his ERA. We've never seen him strike batters out at this sort of pace before, though, so that trend bears watching.
