Tommy Milone hurled six scoreless innings with nothing to show for it Sunday, settling for a no-decision against the Brewers.
Milone stifled the Brewers offense for his six innings, allowing just two hits and three walks while striking out seven. He exited in line for his fifth win, but the Twins bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Even so, it was another strong showing for the lefty, who has been largely good in his nine starts this year. Milone will carry a 3.19 ERA into Friday's contest with the Royals. Jun 28 - 5:14 PM

Tommy Milone snagged his fourth win of the season after limiting the White Sox to two runs in six innings as the Twins won easily, 13-2, on Monday.

Milone allowed 12 base runners on 10 hits and two walks, but the White Sox capitalized only once, when Adam LaRoche hit a two-run single in the third inning. Milone also struck out two on the evening. The lefty has never been dominant in his five-year career, but has done a great job thus far for the Twins, now with a 3.59 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a 28/15 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings. Milone will take on the light-hitting Brewers in Milwaukee next.

Tommy Milone was dominant in seven innings, holding the Cardinals to one run en route to a win on Wednesday.

The lefty relented a second-inning run on a Jason Heyward RBI single, but that was it. He scattered five hits overall, walked none, and struck out five. Milone's last two starts, in which he has filled in for the injured Ricky Nolasco, have been terrific. He now has a 3.67 ERA overall with a 1.25 WHIP and a 26/13 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings on the year. Milone will take on the White Sox at home in next week's start.

Tommy Milone allowed two runs over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rangers.

It was a tough matchup on paper, but Milone held the Rangers scoreless over the first six innings before giving up a two-run homer to Elvis Andrus in the seventh. It was enough to cost him a chance at the victory. The southpaw gave up just three hits in all while walking one and striking out seven. He'll bring a 4.15 ERA into a start against the Cardinals next week at home.
Jun 12 - 11:46 PM

In his return to the Twins, Tommy Milone gave up four runs (two earned) in five innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Red Sox.

Taking the place of the injured Ricky Nolasco (ankle) in the starting rotation, Milone was tagged for nine hits, including a pair of home runs. The soft-tossing southpaw struck out 47 batters over 38 2/3 innings during his time in Triple-A, but he didn't record a single strikeout Thursday. He could stick in the back-end of the rotation for a little while, but we're not expecting much in fantasy leagues.
Jun 4 - 7:27 PM

Twins recalled LHP Tommy Milone from Triple-A Rochester.

Milone was sporting a tremendous 0.70 ERA and 47/3 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings at Triple-A Rochester and has a chance to stick around for a while with Ricky Nolasco (ankle) landing on the disabled list. Milone didn't have much success in a stint with the Twins earlier this year, but he may be a guy to take a chance on in pitching-starved mixed fantasy leagues. The recent spike in his strikeout rate suggests he's made some real changes.
Jun 4 - 12:13 PM

Tommy Milone will be recalled to start on Thursday against the Red Sox.

Milone has certainly earned the promotion, posting a microscopic 0.70 ERA and 47/3 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings at Triple-A Rochester. It could just be a spot start, assuming Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is ready to start on Saturday. Kyle Gibson will be pushed back to start Friday.
Jun 3 - 11:28 AM

Twins optioned LHP Tommy Milone to Triple-A Rochester.

Milone had been expected to be shifted to the bullpen with Ricky Nolasco slated to return on Friday, but it appears they'll keep him stretched out as a starter in Triple-A instead. He posted a 4.76 ERA and 13/11 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings in the Twins rotation.
May 1 - 11:37 PM

Tommy Milone is being moved to the bullpen.

He's getting the boot now that Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is slated to return from the disabled list. This means that Trevor May and Mike Pelfrey will remain in the starting rotation. Milone was great in his season debut, but has scuffled a bit since. He owns a 4.76 ERA and 13/11 K/BB ratio across 22 2/3 innings.
Apr 30 - 5:42 PM

Tommy Milone allowed five runs in four innings of work Monday, resulting in a loss against the Tigers.

Four of those runs came in the first inning, as Jose Iglesias hit a solo home run and Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run round-tripper. From there, he was able to settle down for the most part. He allowed back-to-back singles in the fifth inning before departing in favor of reliever Tim Stauffer. Stauffer allowed one of his inherited runners to score on a sacrifice fly. All told, Milone gave up eight hits, walked two, and struck out two. The lefty has a 4.76 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and a 13/11 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. He'll look for better results when he takes on the White Sox at home next.
Apr 27 - 11:41 PM

Tommy Milone allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Royals.

Milone was actually in line for his third win before the bullpen faltered, but he was far from stellar. Two of the Royals' five hits were homers, and Milone also walked four in the outing. Even without the win, the southpaw owns a 3.38 ERA through three starts. He'll have a tall order when the Twins take on the Tigers on Monday.
Apr 21 - 11:13 PM

Tommy Milone yielded three runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in an 8-5 win over the Royals.

He fanned three in the win. Milone allowed seven hits and three walks, so he had his fair share of trouble, but he was able to wiggle around it more than Jason Vargas on this day. The 28-year-old owns a 2.08 ERA through his first two turns in the Twins' rotation, but he doesn't miss many bats and is unlikely to deliver much fantasy value this season.
Apr 16 - 4:57 PM

Tommy Milone delivered an outstanding performance in his season debut against the White Sox on Friday, scattering two hits and a pair of walks over 7 2/3 shutout innings.

Milone racked up seven strikeouts on the afternoon. He allowed a bunt single to Micah Johnson in the third inning and wouldn't surrender another hit until Tyler Flowers doubled in the seventh. He'll get the ball next against the Royals at home on Thursday and could be worthy of a spot start in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 10 - 7:26 PM

In his first start since being named the Twins' fifth starter, Tommy Milone held the Yankees to one run in six innings to win Tuesday.

He struck out five. Milone beat out Mike Pelfrey and Trevor May for the lone opening in Minnesota's rotation. He doesn't come recommended in AL-only leagues, not with the Twins sporting the AL's worst outfield defense.
Mar 31 - 4:38 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed Saturday that Tommy Milone would open the season as the fifth starter in the team's rotation.

The 28-year-old southpaw struggled in his limited time with the Twins in 2014, though he owns a career 3.98 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 490 1/3 major league innings. He should be a decent backend option in AL-only formats.
