by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nolasco held a 5.51 ERA over 32 2/3 innings at the time of his injury.

Twins not ready to recall Milone despite great Triple-A numbers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Twins pitcher Tommy Milone is 4-0 with a 0.28 ERA and 41:2 K:BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings across four starts with Triple-A Rochester, but the team is not yet ready to bring him back to the majors, the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"He's been communicated with about the fact that we know what he's doing," manager Paul Molitor said. "We are paying attention and we are in a little bit of a holding pattern up here because the guys we have up here are holding their own. I think he understands that."

Milone's only run allowed in Triple-A came in the ninth inning Sunday in his fourth start with Rochester.

"It's been incredible," Molitor said. "He has to be up close to 30 innings of really well-pitched baseball."

Milone was 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA and 13:11 K:BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings before being sent down.


Twins looking to Aaron Thompson, Ryan Pressly for long relief


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) The Twins are working without a dedicated long reliever. Tim Stauffer is on the 15-day disabled list, and the team decided to send Tommy Milone to Triple-A so he could remain a starter, instead of sending him to the bullpen. 

Manager Paul Molitor said he'd mix and match pitchers in long-relief situations. Aaron Thompson got the first call, going 2 1/3 innings on Saturday. Ryan Pressly is probably next. 

Pressly was promoted from Triple-A on Friday. 

"Pressly is probably one of the longer guys I could use in a game right now, but it could change day to day," Molitor said, per MLB.com

"It's all fine by me," Pressly said. "I just want to pitch and prove to them I've made some tweaks, and I'm not the same reliever that was all over the place in Spring Training. I just have to take the opportunity and run with it."


Paul Molitor explains demotion of LHP Tommy Milone


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) The Twins reversed their decision to move struggling lefty Tommy Milone into long relief by sending him to Triple-A Rochester.

"It doesn't make sense for him to be up here in the bullpen," Paul Molitor told MLB.com. "He needs to be starting. I think he was a little taken aback. I don't know if he envisioned that scenario unfolding, but he's going to take it and hopefully take our encouragement to go down there and pitch well and be ready."

Milone began the year with 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the White Sox before collapsing. He posted a 7.20 ERA over his next three starts.

Molitor, however, decided it would be more prudent to keep Milone stretched out as a starter so he could be ready if and when his services are required in the rotation.


Twins reinstate Ricky Nolasco, Brian Duensing from disabled list


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) The Twins activated pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Brian Duensing from the disabled list Friday, the team announced.

Nolasco was pitching in Class A for his rehab assignment because of right elbow inflammation, while Duensing missed the last 14 games with a right intercostal strain.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins lefty Milone survives against Royals for second win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) It wasn't pretty. In fact, it was pretty ugly. But Twins left-hander Tommy Milone did emerge with a 2-0 record Thursday after beating visiting Kansas City.

Milone was the beneficiary of a rare explosion from an offense that ranked last in the majors in batting average heading in. He yielded three earned runs on seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings, fanning three along the way.

His main culprit was Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who slammed a two-run homer in the first inning and added a single and walk against him

"Tommy did well," manager Paul Molitor said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He kind of minimized damage when he did have a little bit of difficulty. When he missed, he didn't miss by much. He was around the plate all day with all of his pitches."

Milone was named the No. 5 starter Sunday and delivered a fine performance a few days later.

"It was a success personally, especially coming off last year when I didn't do well at all coming over here," Milone said. "It's kind of nice to have success here and show them that I am the pitcher they traded for. But the job is not over. I have to keep it up."
