PHOENIX -- After waiting to see how the D-backs used their bullpen Sunday against the Braves, manager Kirk Gibson named long-reliever Wade Miley the starter for Monday's opener with the Phillies.

Miley is stepping in for Daniel Hudson, who went on the disabled list Saturday with a right shoulder impingement.

In 8 2/3 innings of relief this season, Miley has allowed three earned runs on seven hits.

The 25-year-old was 4-2 with a 4.15 ERA in seven starts last year.
