NL Notes: Cubs, Citizens, and Marlins

Chicago Cubs Veteran writer Valley Miley He left yesterday’s match with a narrow slant to the left after sending a strong kick, According to MLB.com. Miley, who will turn 36 next season, has had a frustrating season full of injuries. He started this season on the injured 10-day roster with a sore left elbow and dealt with an extra strain in his left shoulder before revitalizing him in early May. He would have started three times in May before facing injuries again, eventually being put on the 60-day injured list with a left shoulder strain in June.

Cubs’ acquisition of Miley via off-season concessions from the Cincinnati Reds was somewhat noteworthy, with a left-handed coming in with a $10 million salary for the 2022 season and Cubs not considered contenders entering the 2022 season. Miley was off of a four-year production stint, posting 3.53 Era in 425 1/3 rounds and 81 starts, albeit with a low strike rate of 18.0% and a walking rate of 8.1%. However, Miley ranked highly for his ability to miss bats. He was in the 95th percentile for average exit velocity, 83 percent for HardHit%, 75 percent for barrel%, and 77 percent for Chase rate in the 2021 season. With the Cubs out of competition in the 2022 playoffs and Miley a free agent at the end of the season , the Cubs may decide to end their season early and give starts to players who are fighting to start the rotation in the spring.

Cumulatively, Gray reached a 5.17 ERA (27 starts) in 142 2/3 rounds with an above-average strike rate of 24.2% and a high walking rate of 10.4%.

However, in July, Gray hit 6.75 ERA (26 2/3 innings), resulting in 30 hits and 20 points earned.
