Wade Miley exits Tuesday start in the first inning with oblique strain

65

Wade Miley got bit by the injury bug even before the season started, losing out on an Opening Day roster spot after a groin strain in his final Spring Training start. Miley and the club re-negotiated his minor league deal to push back his opt-out until after he could complete rehab, and after three starts in the minor leagues the Brewers elected to add Miley to their active roster and insert him in the starting rotation. The veteran lefty won his Brewers' debut last week against the Reds with six shutout innings, but the bounce back story came grinding to a halt on Tuesday in Miley's second start. Facing the Indians, Miley allowed a leadoff double followed by a walk to the first two batters, and then grabbed his side following his 19th pitch of the contest. He immediately called for the trainer and was removed from the game in favor of Brent Suter. Miley will likely have to undergo an MRI, but at this point it seems like there's a good chance the 31 year old will require a stint on the disabled list.
