Wade Miley forced out of Friday’s game with shoulder injury

2 weeks agoTony Andracki

Wade Miley’s return from the IL did not last long.

The veteran southpaw was activated Friday after missing more than two weeks with shoulder soreness.

He got the ball for the series opener with the Yankees in New York but lasted just 3 innings.

When Miley came out for the 4th, he threw a couple warm-up pitches and needed to exit the game with more shoulder soreness.

Daniel Norris was called on to relieve Miley and on the first pitch he threw, Gleyber Torres — a former Cubs prospect — sent one over the right-field fence for a solo homer.

In 4 starts with the Cubs, Miley has a 2.84 ERA and 1.21 WHIP but he has pitched just 19 innings in those outings.

The 35-year-old was slowed at the start of the year with an elbow injury he suffered in Spring Training. He made his season debut on May 10 with a 3-inning start in San Diego.

Miley was spectacular his second and third times out, racking up a quality start each time and allowing only 3 runs in 13 innings.

Then he landed on the IL with the shoulder issue and now may be ticketed for the shelf once again.
