Miley needs to make a Comeback
Wade Miley continues to struggle as a member of the Mariners, as the veteran southpaw went 1-1 with a 5.73 ERA in 2 starts last week. He struck out just 5 hitters in 11 innings of work, and issued a team high 6 free passes. The opposition hit .349 against Miley, and he allowed 1.91 walks/hits per inning. Obviously, these are not the kind of numbers the Mariners want to see out of their number three pitcher.
2016 has not gone according to plan for the Southeastern Louisiana alum. Miley has gone 1-2 while posting a 7.04 ERA in 4 outings. He leads the league in hits allowed with 32 and earned runs allowed with 18. Miley has fanned 19 and walked 6 in 23 innings.
Put simply, these kinds of performances are not going to cut it for much longer. The Mariners have a plethora of viable arms pitching in Tacoma right now, and they will not hesitate to make a move. Miley has earned himself one bad month, but he needs to turn it around in May.
