Milone (neck) will pitch a simulated game Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Milone threw a side session Tuesday after completing a bullpen session Sunday and is expected to rejoin the Baltimore starting rotation if things go according to plan Thursday. The 33-year-old is a contender to open the season as the Orioles' No. 5 starter and will have the opportunity to make multiple spring starts if he can avoid any further setbacks.
Milone (neck) completed a bullpen session Sunday and could return to spring games in a week, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The left-hander was scratched from his simulated game last Tuesday after dealing with a trapezius issue, but his quick return to mound work indicates it's a minor concern. Milone is in camp as a non-roster invitee and is competing for a back-end rotation spot.
Milone (neck) could throw a side session Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
He was scratched from a scheduled sim game Tuesday due to a left trap injury. It sounds like he is hopeful to get a side session in this week, but it is not a guarantee.
Milone wasn't able to pitch in his scheduled simulated game Tuesday due to a left trap injury, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.
The Orioles appear to be viewing the neck issue as a minor concern, as manager Brandon Hyde acknowledged that Milone might be ready to get back on the mound Wednesday to face hitters. The non-roster invitee is competing for a back-end spot in the Orioles' rotation this spring.
Milone signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.
Milone spent the 2019 season with Seattle, making 21 appearances for the big club -- most in bulk relief behind an opener -- and posting a 4.76 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 92:23 K:BB in 111.2 frames. The veteran southpaw should compete for a spot in the back of Baltimore's rotation this spring.
Milone will not pitch in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Athletics due to shoulder fatigue, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The veteran southpaw was originally slated to work in a multi-inning capacity in the finale behind Justin Dunn, but manager Scott Servais will go with multiple relievers behind the rookie's expected 2-to-3-inning workload. Milone finishes 2019 with a 4-10 record, 4.76 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 23 appearances (six starts).
Milone (4-10) allowed three earned runs on three hits and three walks across 4.1 innings to take the loss against the Astros on Tuesday. He struck out three.
Milone acted in the primary pitcher role once again behind rookie Justin Dunn, who opened the game with two strong innings. The veteran left-hander has allowed a respectable 11 hits across 18 frames in four September multi-inning outings, but he's given up nine runs (eight earned) due to some timely knocks against him. Milone is scheduled to make his final bulk-relief appearance of the season in Sunday's game against the Athletics, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.
Milone will serve as the Mariners' primary pitcher behind opener Justin Dunn in Tuesday's game against the Astros.
Milone turned in one of his better bulk-relief showings his last time out Sept. 18 in Pittsburgh, keeping the Pirates off the board for five innings while allowing just two baserunners. He'll likely have more difficulty finding success against a power-packed Houston lineup that still has something to play for this week with home-field advantage in the postseason still up for grabs. The southpaw will tentatively line up for another turn as a primary pitcher in Sunday's season finale versus the Athletics.
Milone (4-9) pitched five scoreless innings Wednesday against the Pirates, giving up two hits and zero walks while striking out one and picking up the win.
As planned, he came in as the primary pitcher after Justin Dunn opened the game with two scoreless frames for Seattle. While this seems like a reasonable way to deploy Milone, this was his first win since Aug. 20. If this arrangement continues, Milone could work as the primary pitcher twice next week (home against the Astros and A's).
Milone is slated to work behind opening pitcher Justin Dunn in Wednesday's game against the Pirates, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone hasn't been deployed as a traditional starter since Aug. 31, and that seems unlikely to change in either of his two or three scheduled turns through the rotation before the season ends. Expect Dunn to cover no more than two or three frames before giving way to Milone, who is 2-6 with a 6.13 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 54.1 innings since the All-Star break.
Milone allowed two earned runs on three hits over 4.2 innings in a loss to the Reds on Thursday, not issuing any walks and recording five strikeouts. He did not factor into the decision.
The veteran left-hander was slated to come in directly behind opener Justin Dunn, but the rookie's control problems earned him the hook after 37 pitches, five walks and just two batters retired in the first inning. After right-hander Zac Grotz served as a bridge to the third, Milone came in for a solid 63-pitch outing that saw him generate his second straight five-strikeout tally. Milone is expected to serve as the primary pitcher behind Dunn in the rookie's remaining appearances this season.
Milone will work as the primary pitcher in Thursday's game against the Reds, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Prospect Justin Dunn will make his big-league debut as the starter but is only expected to pitch a couple innings. This piggyback setup between Dunn and Milone could continue through the end of the regular season.
Milone (3-9) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs (three earned) on three hits and a walk over four-plus innings of relief while striking out five as the Mariners were downed 7-4 by the Astros.
Seattle was already down 3-2 when Milone took over in the second inning, but after the Mariners tied it up in the top of the fourth he proceeded to dig the hole a lot deeper. The veteran southpaw will carry a 4.98 ERA and 85:20 K:BB through 97.2 innings into his next outing.
Milone will serve as the primary pitcher following an opener Friday, the Associated Press reports.
The veteran southpaw has pitched a total of 62.2 innings in relief this season, generating a 5.03 ERA, .254 BAA and 1.15 WHIP. Milone will be working on normal rest, as he most recently appeared Saturday against the Rangers and threw 81 pitches over five innings.
Milone didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, giving up one run on three hits and a walk over five innings while striking out four.
The southpaw threw 54 of 81 pitches for strikes and was in line for his fourth win of the year after the Mariners took a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning while he was still the pitcher of record, but Matt Magill blew the save in the ninth. Milone will carry a 4.90 ERA and 80:19 K:BB through 93.2 innings into his next outing -- whether as a starter or primary pitcher behind an opener -- Friday in Houston.
Milone (3-8) took the loss as the primary pitcher against the Yankees on Monday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits over five innings, striking out one and walking two as the Mariners fell 5-4.
Following up opener Matt Wisler, Milone posted a dud stat line in this contest, as he gave up a home run to Gleyber Torres on the first pitch he threw and yielded two more long balls to Mike Ford before exiting the contest after five innings and 79 pitches. The 32-year-old has now given up 16 earned runs over his last four appearances, leaving him with an uninspiring 5.08 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 18 games for the season.
Milone (3-7) allowed four earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Rays.
Milone's line isn't particularly impressive, though he got a bit unlucky in his first inning of work as he allowed three consecutive base knocks -- one was an infield single -- to account for two of his earned runs. Other indicators suggest Milone deserved better than his line, as he held the opposition without a homer for just the fourth time in his last 11 outings and issued just one free pass. Milone has settled into a role working as a primary pitcher, generally entering the game in the second inning and working four-to-five innings per appearances. For the season, he owns a 4.84 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 75 strikeouts across 83.2 innings. He should slot in to work as the primary pitcher again Monday against the Yankees.
Milone will serve as the primary pitcher Tuesday against the Rays, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone is set to follow Matt Wisler, who's expected to toss an inning or so as the team's opener. Milone picked up the victory in his last appearance, surrendering two runs while fanning three over four innings Thursday against Detroit.
Milone (2-7) allowed two runs on six hits with no walks and three strikeouts across four innings of relief while recording the win over the Tigers on Thursday.
It was a bullpen day for the Mariners, as they started Matt Wisler as an opener. No Seattle pitcher threw more than an inning other than Milone, so he earned the victory despite yielding a pair of runs. To go with two wins, he has a 4.69 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 71 strikeouts in 78.2 innings over 16 appearances, which includes five starts this season.
Milone will serve as a bulk reliever behind opener Matt Wisler in Thursday's game against the Tigers, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Wisler hasn't worked more than two innings in any of his four turns as an opener, so Milone shouldn't see any significant workload reduction as he transitions back from a traditional starting role. Milone has been at his best this season while working out of the bullpen behind an opener, turning in a 4.44 ERA while holding opponents to a .227/.257/.492 slash line across 48.2 innings.
