3. Wade Miley has been an under-the-radar performer for the Brewers.
Of course the Milwaukee Brewers starting rotation starts and ends with former Cy Young Award-winner Corbin Burnes. Once he returns from the IL, Brandon Woodruff will continue to be slotted behind Burnes, and Freddy Peralta will occupy the No. 3 spot in the Brewers rotation.
But with Aaron Ashby now shifted to the 60-day IL with shoulder surgery, it's quite likely the left-hander will be sidelined for most of, if not all, the 2023 season. It's a good thing the Brew Crew have a veteran lefty like Miley in the rotation.
Miley is off to a solid start. While you're never going to get those eye-popping strikeout numbers from the southpaw, Miley will pitch to contact and oftentimes have a lot of success. The 36-year-old is 1-1 to begin the season and owns a measly 2.45 ERA.
Wade Miley works fast, so the pitch clock won't affect him at all. With Ashby and Woodruff currently on the IL, having a veteran like Miley who can step in and provide an under-the-radar performance every fifth day will be key for the Milwaukee Brewers this season.
