|Tommy Milone roughed up in season debut |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/12/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone took the loss in his season debut Friday night against the Mariners in Seattle.
Milone (0-1) surrendered run-scoring singles to Robinson Cano and Mike Zunino before serving up a two-run home run to Zunino in the sixth. He was charged with five runs -- three earned -- on 10 hits and no walks while striking out seven over five innings pitched. He tossed 93 pitches, 63 of which were strikes.
Milone will make his next start Wednesday against the Angels in Los Angeles.

(4/6/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone, who had his turn skipped in the rotation due to a recent rainout, will get some work in an extended spring training game in Arizona this week, the Sacramento Bee reports.
Milone will make his first start of the season Friday in Seattle.
"I think it'll be good for him to face some hitters," manager Bob Melvin said. "He'll be that much more ready for his next game on Friday."

|Tommy Milone gives up four runs in win vs. Reds |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/25/14) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone surrendered four runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk in five innings while striking out two in his team's 8-4 win over the Reds Tuesday.
Milone will open the season in the No. 5 spot of the rotation after going 2-1 with a 4.26 ERA and 8:5 K:BB ratio in 19 innings this spring.
|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.
