Making his return from the disabled list, Tommy Milone allowed one run on three hits over five innings in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Milone missed two weeks with an elbow sprain. Back in action on Sunday, he struck out three and walked three while surrendering only a second-inning sacrifice fly to Abraham Almonte. The 28-year-old southpaw allowed four or more runs in each of his last three starts prior to landing on the DL, but still owns a respectable enough 3.65 ERA and 1.27 WHIP for the season. Up next on the docket, a road tilt with the Orioles.

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

Milone missed the minimum 15 days with a left elbow sprain. He'll get the ball Sunday against Cleveland. Michael Tonkin was sent to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Milone on the 25-man roster.
Aug 15 - 10:37 PM

Tommy Milone (elbow) is expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible on August 16.

Milone has missed the last week of action with a mild left flexor strain but has resumed throwing and not had any issues. It's unclear whether he'll be asked to make a rehab start or simply be thrust back into the Twins' rotation next weekend.
Aug 9 - 9:38 AM

Tommy Milone (elbow) resumed throwing Thursday.

Milone was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a mild left elbow sprain. Everything went well Thursday, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to throw from a mound.
Aug 6 - 5:49 PM

Twins placed LHP Tommy Milone on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 1, with a mild left flexor strain.

Milone began feeling soreness after Friday's outing. That the Twins are calling the soreness mild is good news, but it's unclear how long the left-hander might be sidelined. Tyler Duffey will take Milone's spot in the rotation.
Aug 2 - 11:43 AM

Tommy Milone gave up four runs and 11 hits in six innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

This makes three subpar starts in a row for Milone, taking his ERA from 2.83 to 3.77. It'd seem to be time for the Twins to give Trevor May another shot at the back of their rotation.
Aug 1 - 2:45 AM

Tommy Milone pitched reasonably well in a Saturday no-decision against the Yankees, yielding four runs on four hits over six innings.

The Twins jumped Milone out to a 5-0 lead, but the Yankees bled that away with a solo homer by Alex Rodriguez in the fourth and three more runs in the seventh (including another Rodriguez homer). Despite the late struggles, Milone was still in line for the win until the Twins bullpen coughed up four runs in the top of the ninth inning. He struck out four and walked one in the contest. Milone's been solid for the Twins since entering the rotation in early June and currently holds a 3.58 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. He'll host the Mariners in his next start.
Jul 25 - 10:30 PM

Tommy Milone served up a season-worst three home runs as he was clobbered in a losing effort against the Athletics on Sunday.

The left-hander was tagged for five runs on five hits over just 2 2/3 innings in the contest. Josh Phegley blasted a two-run homer of him in the second inning, then Billy Butler and Jake Smolinski went back-to-back the following frame to chase him from the ballgame. Even with this debacle, Milone will carry a 3.38 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Yankees.
Jul 19 - 6:58 PM

Tommy Milone kept rolling along Wednesday, spinning seven innings of one-run ball in a 5-3 win over the Orioles.

The soft-tossing left surrendered just five hits and two walks while recording five strikeouts. Milone was visited by manager Paul Molitor after issuing a two-out free pass to put two on in the seventh, but the skipper left him in and he got Caleb Joseph to line out to end the inning. The left-hander hasn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his seven starts since rejoining the rotation last month and will head into the All-Star break with a 2.84 ERA.
Jul 8 - 4:35 PM

Tommy Milone held the Royals down on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over six innings.

Outside of a run-scoring single by Lorenzo Cain in the third inning, Milone managed to keep the Royals off the scoreboard. He struck out five and walked just one in hurling his fifth quality start in a row. The southpaw now owns a 3.02 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. Deeper AL-only formats should consider him as a pick-up, particularly with the way he's pitching at the moment. He won't strike out many batters, but his numbers are rock solid.
Jul 4 - 12:20 AM

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.
Jun 22 - 11:45 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 11:15 PM

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.
