Wade Miley shut down for 10 days

Chicago Tribune

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Wade Miley will be shut down for 10 days after an MRI showed inflammation in his left elbow.

Miley was also battling a neck ailment but now he’s got an elbow injury to deal with.

The 35-year-old was at least cleared of any structural damage, and the hope is that he’ll be able to resume throwing in mid-April.

Miley posted a 3.37 ERA with the Reds last season for 125 strikeouts with a 12-7 record.

The Cubs now have a short-term hole to fill in the pitching rotation with Miley sidelined.
