Wade Miley has been an effective pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers this season. Through his first 10 starts he possesses an impressive 2.91 ERA. A strain to his posterior serratus muscle did sideline him for a bit, but since returning from the IL he has been sharp in the two games that he started.
On Friday night against the Cleveland Guardians Wade Miley pitched six scoreless innings. The outing before that he was not scored upon in five innings. During his first 11 innings since coming off the IL he has not given up an earned run, surrendered five hits, and walked just two batters.
His mot recent outing against the Guadians was impressive. Through six innings his pitch count sat a 67. During the broadcast he was seen visibly upset in between innings and he did not come out to pitch the seventh. After the game he reveled what caused him to be pulled from the game earlier than expected.

Following the game Wade Miley provided the following statement.
I felt it a little bit the last pitch I threw and didn’t think much of it, but tested it out and then my right side started cramping and it just didn’t feel like a good idea to go back out there.
The good news for Brewers fans is that Miley is not hurt. He’s had a bad run of luck with injuries as of late but is appearing to be having a resurgence year in 2023.
