 Biographical Information
Pitcher Wade Miley was selected by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 20th round of the 2005 amateur draft but opted to attend Southeastern Louisiana University instead. He was then chosen by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the supplemental first round of the 2008 amateur draft with the 43rd overall pick and signed by scout Trip Couch. He made his big league debut on August 20, 2011, starting against the Atlanta Braves and giving up 5 earned runs over 4 innings to take the loss. He was a winner in his second start, on August 25th against the Washington Nationals, giving up one run in 6 innings as the D-Backs prevailed, 8-1.
Miley was named the National League's Rookie of the Month in April, 2012, when he went 3-0, 1.29 with 13 strikeouts; he started the season as a long reliever but then took the injured Daniel Hudson's spot in the starting rotation; the only 3 earned runs he gave up that month came in a single relief outing on April 19th. He made the All-Star team as the D-Backs' sole representative and finished the year with an excellent record of 16-11, 3.33 in 32 games (29 starts), having pitched 194 2/3 innings, during which he allowed 193 hits but only 37 walks, and struck out 144 batters. He finished a close second behind the Washington Nationals' Bryce Harper in the voting for the National League Rookie of the Year Award getting 12 first-place votes and 105 points while Harper received 16 and 112 respectively. He was however named the left-handed pitcher on the 2012 Topps All-Star Rookie Team.
