Tommy Milone was tagged for seven runs in just 3 1/3 innings Friday against the Reds.
Milone gave up nine hits (including a leadoff homer to Zack Cozart) and walked a pair. The southpaw owns a 7.50 ERA this spring, so he’s not exactly making the best case for a rotation spot. The Brewers piggybacked things for this game, so Chase Anderson followed and gave up three runs over 4 1/3 innings. Anderson has been respectable this spring, putting up a 3.77 ERA over three starts and two relief appearances, but there might not be room for him in the rotation either. Mar 24 - 8:24 PM

Tommy Milone worked two scoreless innings Sunday in Cactus League play against the Rockies.

Milone gave up a couple of singles but worked efficiently in the afternoon appearance, picking up one strikeout. He's being stretched out as a starter this spring, but the left-hander will probably wind up in a long relief or swingman type of role. Milone signed a one-year, $1.25 million free agent deal with Milwaukee in December.
Mar 5 - 4:19 PM

Brewers signed LHP Tommy Milone to a one-year contract.

He'll get a $1.25 million base salary, per ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Milone opted for free agency in mid-October after the Twins outrighted him to Triple-A Rochester. In 19 appearances this past season (including 12 starts), the veteran southpaw posted a rough 5.71 ERA. While he figures to serve as a usable back-end rotation option for the Brewers -- or, potentially, a swing option out of the pen -- there is no real fantasy intrigue here.

Tommy Milone has elected free agency.

Milone was removed from the Twins' 40-man roster and has decided to get an early jump on free agency. The left-hander held a 5.71 ERA over 19 appearances -- 12 starts -- this season and it wouldn't be a surprise if he wound up having to settle for a minor league deal.

Twins sent LHP Tommy Milone outright to Triple-A Rochester.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Milone posted a 5.71 ERA over 19 appearances -- 12 starts -- for the Twins this season. He's arbitration-eligible this winter but is sure to be non-tendered.

Twins activated LHP Tommy Milone from the 15-day disabled list.

He's been out for the last month with left biceps tendinitis. Milone has posted a 5.68 ERA in 15 appearances this season.

Tommy Milone (biceps) threw a 30-pitch simulated game without issue on Tuesday.

He'll probably face live hitters one more time before returning to the Twins' active roster. The left-hander owns a rough 5.68 ERA in 15 appearances this season.

Tommy Milone (biceps) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

The session went well and now Milone will throw a live batting practice on Tuesday. Milone seems to be trending in the right direction but with Minnesota in last place, there's no need to rush him back before he's ready. The left-hander has contributed an underwhelming 5.68 ERA over 15 outings (12 starts) this year.

Tommy Milone (biceps) is not expected to throw for at least another five days.

Milone was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Friday with left biceps tendinitis and is still in shutdown mode. He seems doubtful to return before September.
Tue, Aug 16, 2016 04:54:00 PM

Twins placed LHP Tommy Milone on the 15-day disabled list with left biceps tendinitis.

Milone was pulled from an appearance Thursday with the ailment. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined.

Tommy Milone left Thursday's game against the Astros with tightness in his left shoulder.

That might explain why he lasted only three innings. The Twins should know more on Milone's status after his MRI results come back. Andrew Albers pitched the last six innings after Milone's early exit, allowing 11 hits and five runs (three earned) while setting a Twins record for the most pitches in a relief appearance with 108.

Tommy Milone was battered for five runs over three innings in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Astros.

After using a position player to pitch an inning in the afternoon game, the Twins were certainly hoping Milone could offer them some length in the nightcap. Instead, the southpaw was chased early after giving up two home runs among his five hits allowed. Milone is now 3-4 with a 5.68 ERA overall. An interleague date with the Braves is on tap for Milone on Wednesday.

Tommy Milone has been moved to the bullpen.

Milone has posted a 4.71 ERA over seven starts since returning to the majors in mid-June. The Twins intend to give Tyler Duffey another chance in the starting rotation. He's starting Wednesday against the Indians.
Mon, Aug 1, 2016 08:20:00 PM

Tommy Milone was touched up for four runs in 5 1/3 innings and was fortunate to escape with a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday.

He didn't walk anybody but he gave up nine hits, including three doubles and a home run. He now has a 5.13 ERA with only 39 strikeouts in 59 2/3 innings. He will get a chance to redeem himself on Thursday against the Indians.
Sat, Jul 30, 2016 11:06:00 PM

Tommy Milone struggled in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox, yielding eight runs (four earned) on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Milone wasn't helped by his defense, but given that seven of the eight runs on his line scored on home runs, he has nobody to truly blame but himself. Hanley Ramirez and Travis Shaw cracked three-run homers in the third and fifth innings (respectively). Dustin Pedroia also notched a solo dinger in that fifth. Milone will carry an unappealing 4.97 ERA and 1.49 WHIP into a home start against the White Sox next time he toes the rubber.
