Milone became a free agent Monday after declining his assignment to Triple-A Rochester, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Milone is coming off a poor 2016 campaign where he ended the year with an ERA of 5.71 over 69 innings of work for Minnesota. There's now a glimmer of hope that he'll remain at the major league level, but his most recent work for the Twins will undoubtedly have other teams around the league highly skeptical of even giving the 29-year-old a shot at fighting for a spot in their rotation when 2017 spring training rolls around.
