Twins starting pitcher Tommy Milone took a no-decision Saturday despite a quality start, allowing just one run on six hits and two walks over six innings while striking out five. He ends the season on a high note, and Milone will finish 2015 with a 3.92 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, numbers right in line with his career prior to last year's stumble.
Twins pitcher Tommy Milone won his ninth game Monday against Cleveland as he allowed two runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Milone threw 82 pitches, and that was probably his limit considering he hadn't pitched since September 17th. An illness for Phil Hughes forced Milone into action, and it's unclear if he'll pitch again this season, but he showed why he's a fine backup to have around. His ERA is down to 4.04 to go with an 86:34 K:BB in 122 2/3 innings.
Twins pitcher Tommy Milone (shoulder) will start Monday's contest against the Indians. With Phil Hughes a late scratch with an illness, manager Paul Molitor tabbed Milone to take over in his place. Milone missed his last start due to shoulder fatigue, but was able to throw a bullpen session over the weekend and is apparently healthy enough to get the start Monday.
Twins pitcher Tommy Milone threw a 35-pitch bullpen session without any issues on Saturday and could return in a relief role as soon as Monday, MLB.com reports. Milone will not return to the rotation unless needed, manager Paul Molitor said. It sounds like he'll make a few appearances in relief the rest of the season.
Twins starter Tommy Milone (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. A bout of shoulder fatigue kept Milone off the mound Wednesday, and Paul Molitor said Friday that the left-hander has been slow to respond to treatment, adding that "there's deadness" in the shoulder. The bullpen session might be Milone's last chance to make a case for another start before the season ends, but the Twins certainly won't chance it if they remain in the playoff race.
