PHOENIX (AP) Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam and had five RBIs, Wade Miley pitched seven effective innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent the San Francisco Giants to their third straight loss, 6-2 Monday night. Wade Miley (8-11) bounced back from his shortest outing of the season by holding the Giants to a run and seven hits. Trumbo provided most of the support, hitting his grand...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Sep 3

Yesterday was a disappointing day. Wade Miley did exactly as I expected, but my team was tanked from the start by Shane Greene’s implosion against the Red Sox. Greene had been extremely consistent, but Boston’s big name bats chose that to to erupt. My three hidden players were Joe Panik (14.00 points), Luis Valbuena (14.00 points), and Greene (-6.00 points). Tuesday’s Official...

While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 137 (AZ vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (66-71) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (57-81) 2-1 on a walk-off home run by pinch-hitter Cory Spangenberg in the ninth inning last night, Spangenberg’s first Major League home run. Neither Odrisamer Despaigne ...

Miley's effort wasted in Padres walk-off

SAN DIEGO -- Wade Miley got the Arizona Diamondbacks through seven innings of a 1-1 game. Evan Marshall struck out the side with runners and first and third in the eighth. Then Brad Ziegler served up Cory Spangenberg's first career home run with one out in the ninth, which gave the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Sep 1

Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 27

Yesterday I suggested a Giants stack against Jorge De La Rosa plus Matt Shoemaker in the rotation. Shoemaker and Buster Posey delivered big and my pair of Dodgers chipped in solid efforts, but the rest of the Giants did little. Overall the lineup scored 114.30 points, finished outside of the money in the Daily Moonshot, and won most of its double ups. In terms of rank, it beat 61...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Aug 27

Wednesday gives us 29 starters as of this writing with Seattle’s pitcher still TBD, and this time we see some big names near the top. As for the rest, let’s turn to the rankings! Drew Pomeranz gets the start for Oakland against the Astros. He’ll face Brad Peacock, which represents a great shot at the win. Houston is solid against lefties, but there’s still massive upside...

Five D'backs errors equals one Marlins' win

MIAMI Somehow, the Marlins watched the Diamondbacks commit three second-inning errors Saturday and failed to score. They weren't going to let them get away with another bumbling inning unscathed. Errors four and five came in the seventh and contributed to the unearned run that proved the difference in a 2-1 win at Marlins Park. Starters Henderson Alvarez and Wade Miley both...

Pitcher Profile: Wade Miley Still K-ing Like A Wrecking Ball

Man it was a crazy weekend!  I think the biggest event was I saw a dude with a Fangraphs shirt on.  Way to wear your heart on your sleeve!  With a 79.8% confidence.  Then my boy James Paxton was straight up nasty, striking out the White Sox in order in the first inning and turning in a good start.  Pour the syrup, hoser!  Oh, and I got engaged... But despite all that hooplah...

D-backs' starting streak comes to an end

PHOENIX -- All good things must come to an end, and so it was for the Diamondbacks' string of strong starts. Arizona starters had a 2.13 ERA in the past eight games, and Wade Miley had pitched the best game of the bunch, throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a victory at Cincinnati on July 30. But Miley was not himself Tuesday, and Kansas City took early advantage. "I flat...

Sweet home, Arizona: Royals return to desert and let the good times fly

The Royals set foot on Arizona soil again, and crazy offensive things began to happen. The Royals, the team that has pounded Cactus League pitching the past two springs but saw that offense vanish in the regular seasons, suddenly muscled up again as they returned to the Valley of the Sun. The Royals whacked three home runs, totaled 15 hits in all, and rolled to a 12-2 thumping of...

Royals bash the D-backs

PHOENIX -- Billy Butler had a three-run homer among his four hits, Nori Aoki hit a grand slam and the Kansas City Royals gave Danny Duffy some rare run support by bashing the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-2 on Tuesday night. Kansas City battered Wade Miley (7-8) from the start, scoring 10 runs off him by the fifth inning. Salvador Perez had the first big blow with a three-run homer in...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Wade Miley Is Getting Better

Wade Miley dug himself quite a hole in April, posting a 5.36 ERA and allowing opposing batters to post a .349 wOBA against him. Pitching that poorly in April assures two things: either your line will never look good or you’ll have to pitch really, really well the rest of the season to have a decent line. It’s difficult to have a good season after spending 42 innings allowing...

Phillies get to Miley, take series opener

PHILADELPHIA -- Domonic Brown homered, doubled and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. Grady Sizemore had three hits, including the 1,000th of his career, with a double and an RBI for Philadelphia, which had a rare offensive outburst. The Phillies, who entered 12th in the NL in runs, scored at least...

Wade Miley (SP, ARI) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Wade Miley is only owned in slightly more than a 1/4 of Yahoo! leagues, and at this point I’m convinced it’s because he’s got a really junky sounding name, because there’s really no other explanation. Miley’s fastball velocity has been increasing each month, and he has a lot of room […]

Miley battles but stays hot in D-backs win

PHOENIX -- With as high as Wade Miley had set the bar through his first three starts in July, it didn't take much for the Diamondbacks left-hander to have his worst outing of the month. But to apply such a label to Miley's performance against the Cubs on Saturday is misleading. He had to battle a bit but Miley continued his red-hot month with an efficient night that earned...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jul 19-21

As I mentioned in Friday’s rankings, for the second half I’ve elected to show the projected ROS ERA from Steamer (link below). This number is a key input for the rankings and often when there’s a ranking that looks suspect, it’s because Steamer is more or less bullish than the general public. On Saturday, Wade Miley is the day’s top pitcher facing Travis Wood and the Cubs...

Aaron Hill, Wade Miley lead Arizona Diamondbacks over San Francisco Giants

When he thinks back to the Wade Miley of early this season, the one who lugged a 5.00 ERA around for much of the season's first three months, Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero remembers the delivery. It looked tight and unnatural, like someone trying to exert a little more from himself than humanly possible. "I think he was trying too hard," Montero said. The Miley...

In keeping with the theme of the game Tuesday night, the Pirates did their work in the ninth inning quickly.

Ike Davis’ pinch-hit single gave the Pirates a 3-2, walk-off win against the Diamondbacks at PNC Park. The Pirates...
