by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Path to starting job clearer for Tommy Milone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Twins assigned newly acquired pitcher Tommy Milone to Triple-A  Rochester Thursday, a bad break for a guy with major-league talent who was already upset with the A's sending him down before the trade. However, he is not likely to spend much time in the minors before he gets a chance to join the Twins rotation, with Logan Darnell's spot looking ripe for the taking.

Milone is the type of pitcher for whom the term "crafty" was invented, given his soft-tossing ways from the left side of the mound. The 27-year-old has logged nearly 500 innings at the major-league level with a 3.84 ERA, including a 3.55 mark in 96 1/3 frames this season. Those numbers should make him a useful Fantasy option, though he will likely need to miss a few more bats if he is to become more of an option in shallower mixed-leagues moving forward.

Given the amount of uncertainty surrounding his role at this point, Milone is not someone you should run out and grab. But, he is absolutely worth a flier in AL-only leagues right now, with a somewhat clearer path to a consistent starting job carved out ahead of him. Mixed-league owners should be ready to jump when he gets the call. 


Tommy Millone reports to Triple-A for A's


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Newly acquired Twins pitcher Tommy Milone will report to Triple-A Rochester, the team announced Thursday.

Milone was acquired from the Athletics in a deadline-day deal for Sam Fuld. He had a 6.43 ERA in four starts for Triple-A Sacramento prior to the trade, but was 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA in 96 1/3 innings for the A's prior to the trade. 


Report: Twins acquire Tommy Milone from busy Athletics


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Athletics promise to be very busy ahead of the trade deadline, and they made another move Thursday, agreeing to trade pitcher Tommy Milone to the Twins, according to FOXSports.com.

Milone has been pushed out of the Athletics' crowded rotation, but had a 3.55 ERA in 96 1/3 innings before he was sent to the minors. Details of the return to Oakland are not yet known. 


Report: Marlins may be considering Tommy Milone


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone is among the pitchers the Marlins are thought to be considering adding before the trade deadline, the Miami Herald reports.

Milone reportedly requested a trade after being sent to the minors upon the addition of two starting pitchers to the rotation. He is 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA and 61:26 K:BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings with the A's.


Report: Tommy Milone requests trade


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone has asked the team to trade him, FOXSports.com reports.

Milone lost his rotation spot after the team acquired two starting pitchers from the Cubs in early July. The A's shipped Milone to Triple-A Sacramento after the trade, where he has surrendered seven earned runs in nine innings over two starts while striking out three batters and walking six. He is 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA and 61:26 K:BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings over 16 starts with the A's.


Tommy Milone victim of trade and dispatched to Triple-A


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 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
(7/4/2014) 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

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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
(6/18/2014) 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.

Tommy Milone lights-out again in Wednesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Athletics left-hander Tommy Milone, who found his groove in early May and has not let go, pitched another gem Wednesday night against the Angels.

Milone yielded just one run on six hits in 6 2/3 innings to raise his record to 4-0 in his last seven starts. He walked two and struck out four. An RBI double by red-hot Josh Hamilton was his lone blemish.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Offense wakes up after Tommy Milone's exit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Athletics starting pitcher Tommy Milone made just one mistake in Saturday's game against the Angels, and his teammates didn't help out much until he left the 11-3 win.

Milone allowed three runs in six innings in the outing, all of which came on a fourth-inning home run by Collin Cowgill. He scattered nine hits otherwise, while walking one batter and striking out three in the no-decision.

MIlone started the season 0-3 in five starts, but is now undefeated over the last five. He is 3-3 with a 3.60 ERA heading into his next start, scheduled for Friday in Baltimore. 


Tommy Milone useful, but nothing more


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Tommy Milone emerged as a useful Fantasy option as a rookie in 2012, when he went 13-10 with a 3.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings. So this latest four-start stretch in which he's gone 3-0 with a 1.03 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 6.8 strikeouts per nine innings certainly didn't come out of nowhere.

But it's more of a correction for his first five starts, when he had a 5.86 ERA, than the standard going forward. His overall numbers now look much like the ones he had in 2012, when again, he was useful.

His flaws now are as evident as they were then, though. With as many fly balls as he allows, he's actually been lucky not to give up more home runs than he has, and like most soft tossers, he's not much of a bat misser.

So he's useful, but not exactly a priority off the waiver wire in standard mixed leagues. He's worth streaming in weeks when he's making two starts in pitchers parks, but he lacks the upside to stash on your bench in the meantime.


Tommy Milone strikes out six in win Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Athletics pitcher Tommy Milone earned a win Monday after giving up just four hits and two walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out six in his team's 10-0 win over the Tigers.

Milone (3-3) has been excellent over his last four starts, giving up just three runs on 16 hits and six walks in 26 1/3 innings and earning all three of his wins during that stretch. He owns a 3.50 ERA and 36:18 K:BB ratio in 54 innings. Milone will square off with the Angels Saturday.


Tommy Milone surrenders two runs in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
