Mariners pitcher Wade Miley traded to Orioles
SEATTLE – The Baltimore Orioles have acquired left-hander Wade Miley in a trade with the Seattle Mariners.
Miley is 7-8 with a 4.98 ERA on the year but he had a 3.45 ERA in five July starts. He pitched seven innings of one-hit ball in Seattle’s 4-1 against the major league-leading Chicago Cubs on Saturday.
Seattle received left-hander Ariel Miranda in Sunday’s trade. The Cuban pitcher has spent most of the year with Triple-A Norfolk. He appeared in one game for Baltimore on July 3 at Seattle, allowing three runs and four hits in two innings.
The 29-year-old Miley was selected by Arizona with the 43rd pick in the 2008 amateur draft and made his major league debut with the Diamondbacks in 2011. He is 56-54 with a 4.07 ERA in six years in the majors.
