  • Mariners' Tommy Milone: Inks minor-league deal

    Milone signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Milone spent the majority of the 2021 season in the Blue Jays organization, which included 14 innings with the big-league club. He struggled while posting a 6.43 ERA and 1.64 WHIP. Milone will almost certainly start the season at Triple-A Tacoma, though he could reach the majors and appear in low-leverage roles as the season progresses.

  • Tommy Milone: Released by Blue Jays

    Milone (shoulder) passed through release waivers and became a free agent Thursday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Milone landed on the injured list in early May due to left shoulder inflammation, but he began a rehab assignment June 27. Across eight appearances (four starts) at Triple-A Buffalo, he recorded a 2.63 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 13.2 innings. The Blue Jays don't have room for him on the active roster now that he's healthy, so he'll be free to seek out other opportunities.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Starts up rehab assignment

    Milone (shoulder) worked in an inning of relief in his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, surrendering two earned runs on one hit and three walks.

    Making his first appearance in a game setting since May 1, Milone was unsurprisingly rusty. He needed 34 pitches to record three outs and threw more balls (18) than strikes (16). Prior to landing on the 10-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation, Milone had been filling a relief role for the big club, but the Blue Jays could look to have him build up his innings count while he's out on the rehab assignment. Toronto's rotation depth has taken a hit in recent weeks with Nate Pearson getting shut down with a groin injury.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Milone (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Milone hit the injured list at the start of May with left shoulder inflammation. The injury is apparently serious enough to shut him down for at least two months, so he'll now be ineligible to return before the start of July. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Blue Jays to select Alek Manoah's contract.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Heads to IL with shoulder issue

    The Blue Jays placed Milone on the 10-day injured list Sunday with left shoulder inflammation.

    Milone likely picked up the injury during his long-relief appearance Saturday, when he was tagged for four runs over 2.1 innings in Toronto's win over Atlanta. The Blue Jays recalled Anthony Kay from their alternate site in a corresponding move, giving the team another lefty arm capable of providing some length out of the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Earns win in relief

    Milone (1-0) earned the win in relief Tuesday against the Nationals after allowing one run on three hits and a walk across his lone inning of work.

    Milone entered the game in the third inning to replace the opener, Trent Thornton, and while he gave up a run on a solo shot from Yadiel Hernandez, he looked poised the rest of the way -- he tossed 15 of his 21 pitches for strikes despite not fanning anyone. The veteran lefty has given up runs in four of his five appearances this season, however, so he hasn't exactly been a reliable arm out of the Blue Jays' bullpen despite posting a 16:3 K:BB across 12 innings to date.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Early exit in Saturday's start

    Milone didn't factor into the decision in a 3-2 loss to the Royals during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, giving up two runs on three hits over 2.1 innings. He struck out four.

    The veteran southpaw didn't give the Jays much length in his spot start, getting the hook after 39 pitches (26 strikes). Milone has pitched reasonably well to begin the season, posting a 3.24 ERA and 12:2 K:BB through 8.1 innings, but he will remain in a swingman role for now.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Set for spot start

    Milone will make a spot start in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Milone has appeared as a reliever in both of his outings thus far this season, though he threw three innings both times, so he should be able to handle four or five Saturday if he works efficiently. As a starter for Atlanta and Baltimore last season, the veteran lefty struggled to a 6.69 ERA.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Cruises to three-inning save

    Milone was credited with the save Saturday against the Angels, pitching three scoreless innings and yielding only one hit. He struck out six and did not walk a batter.

    Milone entered the contest staked to a 14-1 lead and had no stress in finishing off the final three frames of the lopsided win. It was an impressive outing for the veteran as he allowed only a harmless single and struck out six. Milone isn't likely to see many more save chances going forward, but he could carve out an important bullpen role after functioning exclusively as a starter last season.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Joins big club

    The Blue Jays selected Milone's contract ahead of Sunday's game against the Yankees.

    Though Milone was unable to secure a spot on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster after attending camp on a minor-league deal, he had to wait only a few days to receive his first call-up of 2021. He'll provide Toronto with a lefty option out of the bullpen who's capable of eating innings. The Blue Jays transferred Kirby Yates (elbow) to the 60-day injured list to clear room on the 40-man roster for Milone.

  • Blue Jays' Tommy Milone: Signs minor-league deal

    Milone signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday that includes an invite to spring training.

    Milone made nine starts with Baltimore and Atlanta last season but struggled with a 6.69 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 39 innings. He missed the final several weeks of the regular season due to left elbow inflammation and was let go by Atlanta at the end of September. Assuming he's fully healthy this spring, Milone should compete for a major-league roster spot with his new club.

  • Tommy Milone: Cut loose by Atlanta

    The Braves released Milone (elbow) on Wednesday.

    The transaction opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Charlie Culberson, whose contract was selected ahead of the Braves' wild-card series opener Wednesday with the Reds. After being acquired from the Orioles on Aug. 30, Milone made only three starts for the Braves, posting a 14.90 ERA and 2.48 WHIP across 9.2 innings before he was shut down Sept. 10 with left elbow inflammation. Milone should be back to full health for the start of spring training in 2021.

  • Braves' Tommy Milone: To IL with elbow inflammation

    Milone was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with left elbow inflammation.

    If this is anything other than very minor inflammation, Milone's season is probably over. He gave up eight earned runs in 3.1 innings in his last start. Huascar Ynoa was recalled in a corresponding move. With Cole Hamels and Max Fried expected back next week, the Braves won't necessarily need to find another replacement option for the rotation.

  • Braves' Tommy Milone: Takes no-decision in rough outing

    Milone allowed eight runs on eight hits (two home runs) and two walks while striking out four across 3.1 innings in Wednesday's 29-9 win over the Marlins. He didn't factor into the decision in the Braves' victory.

    Milone was lucky to escape with a no-decision due to his offense putting up an NL-record run total. The southpaw threw a clean first frame before allowing two runs in the second, three in the third, and then three more in the fourth after Grant Dayton couldn't hold the runners he inherited from Milone. Since being shipped to the Braves on Aug. 30, Milone has a 14.90 ERA to go along with a 2.48 WHIP in three starts.

  • Braves' Tommy Milone: Solid in no-decision

    Milone didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits over four innings. He struck out three.

    The veteran southpaw threw 43 of 65 pitches before exiting, and while the Nats had runners in scoring position in three of Milone's four frames, he was able to limit the damage. He pitched well enough to remain in Atlanta's rotation for now, and his next turn is scheduled for Wednesday, at home against the Marlins.
