MLB: Wade Miley to start for Brewers


Left-hander Wade Miley on Sunday was moved into the rotation by the Milwaukee Brewers, who sent Brent Suter to the bullpen.

Miley, 31, will make his first start with the Brewers on Wednesday in Cincinnati.

He struck out 11 batters in a start for double-A Biloxi on Friday and the Brewers had to make a decision by Sunday whether to add him to the team or allow him to become a free agent.

Miley had an 8-15 record and a 5.61 earned-run average in 32 starts last year with the Baltimore Orioles.
