|Tommy Milone victim of trade and dispatched to Triple-A |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/5/14) Athletics left-hander Tommy Milone has certainly not pitched poorly in the rotation, but he's heading to Triple-A Sacramento to make room for Jeff Samardzija.
Milone has given up three earned runs or less in 11 of his last 12 outings and has eight quality starts during that stretch, including a six-inning shutout performance against Toronto on Friday night. He is 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA and was having his best season.
|Tommy Milone shuts out Blue Jays in no-decision |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/4/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone had nothing to show for six shutout innings Friday, in a 1-0 extra-innings win over the Blue Jays.
Milone had to settle for a no-decision in the win, despite holding the Blue Jays off the scoreboard over six innings. He scattered four hits in his six innings, while walking one batter and striking out six on 100 pitches.
Milone has still not lost since May 3, a stretch of 11 starts. He is 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA heading into his next start, set for Wednesday in San Francisco.
|Tommy Milone tosses seven innings in win vs. Marlins |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/29/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone earned a win Sunday after giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 4-3 victory over the Marlins.
Milone (6-3) surrendered his unearned run to the first batter of the game, who tripled before coming home on a throwing error. The Oakland starter also surrendered a solo home run in the sixth inning and another run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh. After starting the season 0-3 in his first five starts, Milone is 6-0 over his last 10. He owns a 3.79 ERA and 55:25 K:BB ratio in 90 1/3 innings going into Friday's start against the Blue Jays.
|A's shuffle rotation plans for upcoming week |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Sunday he has shuffled the rotation after deciding to give starting pitcher Sonny Gray a few extra days to rest with off-days Monday and Thursday. The right-handed hurler has been pushed back to Saturday against the Marlins.
Scott Kazmir will now start Tuesday against the Mets and he will be followed by Brad Mills in the two-game series.
Jesse Chavez, who was scheduled to start Saturday, has been moved up to Friday against Miami. Tommy Milone, who started Sunday against the Red Sox, will then finish off the Marlins series next Sunday.
|Tommy Milone exits in sixth inning in win |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/18/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone failed to get through six innings for the first time in five starts Tuesday, but still pitched well in a 10-6 win over the Rangers.
Milone earned the win despite leaving in the sixth, snapping his streak of quality starts at four. He was tagged for three runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings of work, while striking out three batters and walking one.
Milone has not lost since his first start of the month of May, a streak of eight starts without a loss. He is 5-3 with a 3.56 ERA heading into his next start, Sunday against the Red Sox.
|After coming out of nowhere to win 13 games with a 3.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings as a rookie in 2012, Tommy Milone got a dose of reality in 2013. He started out well enough, compiling a 3.13 ERA over his first seven starts, but then after he registered just seven quality start in his next 15, the Athletics had seen enough, turning his rotation spot over to up-and-comer Sonny Gray. Milone got a couple more spot starts the rest of the way but was shuffled between the majors and the minors and the rotation and the bullpen, not really doing anything to redeem himself. With another organization, he would have been a lock for a rotation spot going into spring training just because he's efficient enough to pitch six innings consistently, but with the Athletics, his second chance wasn't a given. He'll get it, though, with Jarrod Parker needing a second Tommy John surgery. Of course, he may face some competition from the more talented Drew Pomeranz somewhere down the line, but as things stand now, he's a borderline mixed-league option, if only for the innings he figures to pitch.
