    Explain this please

    Why is Wade Miley ranked in the 233? 16 wins, 3.33 ERA, and 1.18 WHIP last year and was in the running for rookie of the year. Explain why he's that underrated?

    • Because he doesn't have stud stuff.

    • Thanks guys. He's still rated higher on my draft board, but I appreciate the insight.

    • The same reason Kemp and Cargo are ranked so high when they did`nt put up first round stats last season Yahoos ranks pretty much suck they over rated steals

    • his k rate is pretty low so his fantasy upside is fairly limited. also, a lot of hitters started figuring him out the second half of last year, and he wont be able to beat people because they dont know anything about him like last year. overall i feel like hes just a guy with average stuff who will have a sophomore year thats much worse than his rookie year. will probably be useful at times this year but will also be on FAs for another part and i dont really care for drafting guys that will be on FAs at some point in the year

    • I think the Truth is right, I did hear he is coming off an injury but I 100% agree he should be ranked much higher. I'm trying to decide myself when to draft this guy as he could be solid again. Can you please answer my questions about drafting? Thanks!

      Wade Miley (arm) said he's confident that he'll be ready for the start of the season.
      Miley has barely pitched this spring and is going through a "dead arm phase." He allowed four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings in his start Sunday, but was able to make it through the outing without any setbacks. "I thought he threw the ball well," manager Kirk Gibson said. "It was a good step, the next step forward. We'll see how he feels Monday. If he's healthy, he's going to be in our rotation." Mar 24 - 11:57 PM

    • Okay, so I've asked this on the boards about 3 times in the past 3 weeks and have yet to get a reply. The only thing that I can make out of it is that nobody can say why Miley should be ranked at 233. He's staying much higher than that on my list then. Top ten undervalued players.
