Working quickly, Astros' Wade Miley embraces craftiness

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) For much of his career, Houston Astros pitcher Wade Miley tried to avoid the backhanded compliment he now is grudgingly willing to embrace.

Following the powerful arms of Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole in a starting rotation, along with the overall proliferation of triple-digit radar readings, can prompt a re-examination of self.

"I'm more of a `crafty lefty,' I guess," Miley said. "I hate saying that because I've never classified myself as that for a long time, but in today's game, that's where I'm at. I'm a soft-tossing lefty."
