 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Wade Miley was so sure he was going to fall short of making Arizona's opening day roster last spring that he and his wife Katy packed their car and got prepared to make the five-hour trip to the Diamondbacks' Triple-A team in Reno.
He never made it to Nevada.
Reliever Takashi Saito strained a calf just before opening day and the Diamondbacks said he was going to start the season on the disabled list. Miley, with just eight games of major league experience, stuck with the big league team.
Miley made three relief appearances and joined the rotation on April 23. He went 9-5 with a 3.04 ERA and became an All-Star. He finished 16-11 with a 3.33 ERA, tying for sixth in NL in wins and compiling the 10th-best ERA.
