Wade Miley is a brittle old man. He started the season on the DL with a groin strain and then hit the 60-day two starts later with a pulled oblique. This is a reminder to those young folks out there to stretch every day.
It was really only one start in between those DL stints because the second lasted only one out before he left the game. He cruised through six innings in the first, though, giving up just one run.
The Crew has been steady and looks poised to come into the all-star break as the NL Central leader for the second year in a row.
Christian Yelich drove in four of his team’s eight runs on Tuesday night against his former club and Travis Shaw hit just his second home run in over a month. He’s my biggest concern regarding Milwaukee down the stretch because a wrist injury has hampered his power and there’s time for it to get worse without much time off to get it better.
Jameson Taillon came out of the gates hot, stumbled and has since plateaued at a consistent level for the Pirates.
He got through another six innings the last time out and even got two outs in the seventh in a tough luck loss. He hasn’t given up more than three runs in a start since May 22nd, which has been the only such case since late-April.
Of course, an average ERA isn’t what the Pirates were hoping for when he was being tabbed as the second ace to join Gerrit Cole in a rotation that never really materialized. It doesn’t help that there isn’t much of anything exciting going on with the Buccos these days.
