Tommy Milone (neck) ready to compete for spot in Twins rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Twins starting pitcher Tommy Milone, who will be competing for the final spot in the team's rotation, said he was able to prepare for spring training without any issues after having a benign tumor removed from the back of his neck in early December, per MLB.com.

"I'm ready to go," Milone said. "I'm prepared this year more than the last couple years. I don't know if it was just getting a late start on working out or throwing this year because of the neck issue. So I felt like I needed to turn it on double-time once I got healthy."

Milone, who is competing against Mike Pelfrey, Alex Meyer, Trevor May and Tim Stauffer, is considered the favorite for the last spot in the rotation. However, he is taking nothing for granted.

"I don't ever come into spring training thinking I have a spot in the rotation," Milone said. "So I'm just going to treat it the same way. And obviously I don't and it's not a lock. There are a few guys going for it. So you just have to compete."


Twins' Trevor May 'intriguing candidate' for rotation spot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Twins pitcher Trevor May is an "intriguing candidate" for the rotation's fifth spot, but will have a tough time beating out veterans Tommy Milone and Mike Pelfrey, reports MLB.com. The 6-foot-5 right-hander says he's in the best shape of his life and is looking to build off a solid finish to last season.

In May's last start, against Detroit, he allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while fanning seven over six innings.

"Toward the end, I stayed taller and my stuff got better," said May, 25. "I got more swings and misses. The runs that were scoring were more in spurts. And the walks got better, too. I started pounding the zone better than I ever have."

May added he hopes the progress he showed "was enough to keep me in the conversation. But baseball is a business and some guys are on contracts. If you're going to throw as good as them and your stats are identical, they're going to get the job. But that's how it is and I know that. But my job doesn't change because of that. My job is to be in the best shape possible and compete for a spot."

May said he's willing to work out of the bullpen if he doesn't make the rotation.

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.

Report: Marlins may be considering Tommy Milone


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
