Signed to a two-year, $ 15 million contract last winter, Miley made four starts and pitched 12 1/3 innings of 6.57 ERA in a Cincinnati uniform. Fortunately for the team, their rotation has always been among the best in the league due to the work of Trevor Bauer, Luis Castillo, Sonny Gray and Tyler Mahle.
