2020 Reds

Wade Miley to IL with groin injury, Desclafani and Mahle to start in Detroit

The Reds beat writers have reported that pitcher Wade Miley will go on the IL tomorrow with a groin injury. Anthony DeSclafani, who has been on the IL with a shoulder injury, will take Miley’s place in the rotation and pitch on Saturday in Detroit. Tyler Mahle, who took DeSclafani’s spot will stay on turn and pitch on Sunday.

Miley pitched against the Cubs on Monday and didn’t make it through two innings. Mahle pitched Tuesday night and threw 4 innings, giving up 2 runs.

Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who grew up during the Big Red Machine era. He’s been writing about the Reds for more than ten years. Steve’s fondest memories about the Reds include attending a couple 1975 World Series games, being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter and going nuts for Jay Bruce at Clinchmas. Steve was also at all three games of the 2012 NLDS, but it’s too soon to talk about that.
