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.
Aug 12 - 4:44 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 11:03 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 10:06 PM

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.
Aug 1 - 8:20 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.
Jul 30 - 11:06 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.
Jul 24 - 6:59 PM

Tommy Milone took a shutout into the ninth and settled for a win after allowing two runs in 8 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Tigers.

Milone had a one-hitter going until the Tigers delivered three straight singles against him in the ninth. He then got a sac fly before being lifted in favor of Brandon Kintzler, who allowed two more singles before getting the last two outs. It was Milone's third straight victory after he opened the season winless in six starts and a relief appearance. His fantasy value remains limited to deep AL-only leagues.
Jul 19 - 10:50 PM

Tommy Milone won his second consecutive start on Sunday, limiting the Rangers to two runs on five hits over five frames.

The southpaw struck out three and walked three in the ballgame. While he wasn't great, the Twins offense provided more than enough run support to give him the easy victory. Milone's first half concludes with a 2-2 record, 5.23 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 28/14 K/BB ratio across 41 1/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 6:27 PM

Tommy Milone held his former team in check Tuesday, spinning six frames of one-run ball in an 11-4 victory over the Athletics.

Milone recorded just two strikeouts, but he also allowed only five hits and one walk, with a Marcus Semien solo shot representing the only tally against him. The southpaw had struggled in each of his lat two starts since rejoining the rotation, so he might have needed this effort to keep his spot. Milone will take on the Rangers on Sunday.
Jul 6 - 2:12 AM

Twins manager Paul Molitor wouldn't commit to Tommy Milone making another start.

Milone was unimpressive in Thursday's loss to the White Sox, allowing five earned runs in only 3 1/3 innings. Jose Berrios flirted with a no-hitter in his last start for Triple-A Rochester and could be ready for another shot at the major leagues. Milone holds an underwhelming 6.23 ERA in seven outings for the Twins this year.
Jun 30 - 6:46 PM

Tommy Milone was tagged for five runs in 3 1/3 innings by the White Sox on Thursday.

Milone's defense was partly to blame for his bad return to the majors last week, but this one was pretty much all on him. The Twins might as well give him another chance next week rather than make a change before the break, but they might want to give his spot to Jose Berrios soon.
Jun 30 - 5:49 PM

Tommy Milone gave up four runs (one earned) in 3 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Yankees.

His defense made a couple of errors behind him, but Milone looked really shaky after the first time through the order. He gave up six hits and a pair of walks before being pulled. The southpaw earned another shot in the Twins’ rotation after a dominant stint in Triple-A, but we’re not looking for much in the way of fantasy value here. He has a matchup against the White Sox next week on the road.
Jun 24 - 10:16 PM

Twins purchased the contract of LHP Tommy Milone from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll take the place of the struggling Pat Dean in the Twins rotation. The 29-year-old southpaw posted an outstanding 1.66 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 41/4 K/BB ratio over 48 2/3 innings spanning seven starts at Triple-A. He has shown the ability to be a useful fantasy commodity in the past and could be worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Jun 18 - 12:52 AM

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

Milone apparently passed through waivers unclaimed. If he accepts the assignment, he'll continue to provide rotation depth for the Twins at Triple-A, though he may want to explore his opportunities elsewhere instead.
