Milone (1-4) allowed five earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two across 4.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Athletics.
Milone served up three home runs after entering the game in the third inning, working as the primary pitcher. His difficulty keeping the ball in the yard is nothing new, as he's now allowed 1.8 HR/9 and has managed to hold the opposition without a long ball in just four of his 11 appearances for the season. Milone will likely work as the primary pitcher again in his next outing, set for Tuesday against Texas.
Milone, who fired 2.1 perfect innings in a loss to the Angels on Friday, is still slated to serve as the primary pitcher Wednesday versus the Athletics, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports.
The veteran southpaw wasn't projected to make his first post-All-Star-break appearance until this coming Wednesday against Oakland, but Friday's blowout defeat necessitated his presence in order to help preserve some other bullpen arms. Milone would still have the benefit of four days of rest for Wednesday's appearance, which could even end up being a traditional start. "We just kind of take it start by start," said manager Scott Servais. "Can't speak to what we'll go with on Wednesday for Tommy. ... We'll just have to wait and see where we're at."
Milone struck out five over 2.1 perfect innings of relief in a 13-0 loss to the Angels on Friday.
Though he remains a member of the Seattle rotation, Milone was available out of the bullpen for the first game of the second half since he would still be able to pitch on his normal rest ahead of his next scheduled turn July 17 in Oakland. The southpaw was one of the few bright spots on the night for the Mariners, but his efforts were for naught with the team already trailing 9-0 when he entered the contest.
Manager Scott Servais confirmed that Milone would likely be deployed behind an opener in the southpaw's next scheduled turn through the rotation July 17 in Oakland, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone will cover the bulk of the innings for the Mariners' fifth game of the All-Star break, though he'll likely be out of the bullpen in an emergency in the first game of the second half Friday against the Angels. The Mariners' decision to continue using Milone as a non-traditional starter comes as little surprise, given that he's turned in a 3.21 ERA while holding opposing hitters to a .198/.219/.406 slash line over his 28 innings of relief.
Milone (1-3) took the loss as the primary pitcher against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits over 5.1 innings, striking out four and walking one in the Mariners' 5-4 defeat.
The left-hander has pitched well in the bulk reliever role this season, but he was roughed up by the Cardinals in this contest, with long balls from Matt Wieters and Dexter Fowler accounting for three of the five runs against him. It was a tough outing, but Milone's numbers on the season still look good overall, as he's sporting a 3.56 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 44:10 K:BB through 48 innings.
Milone will serve as the Mariners' bulk reliever in Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
He'll be following Matt Carasiti, who is only expected to work the first inning before turning the game over to Milone. Milone has been used as a bulk reliever in three of his past four turns, delivering a 2.82 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB in 22.1 innings over that span.
Milone served as the primary pitcher after an opener in an extra-inning loss to the Astros on Friday and fired five scoreless innings in which he allowed three hits and a walk while striking out two. He did not factor into the decision.
The veteran southpaw continued his successful major-league stint with yet another effective turn as a bulk reliever. Milone has yielded no more than three earned runs in all eight of his appearances for the Mariners, although Friday was his first scoreless outing. The 32-year-old sports an impressive 2.95 ERA and 0.94 WHIP across 42.2 innings, with both numbers representing considerable improvement over his respective 4.35 and 1.32 career figures in those categories. Milone figures to continue sticking with the big-league club for the foreseeable future, given the considerable flexibility he affords manager Scott Servais in terms of how the Seattle skipper deploys his pitching staff.
Milone allowed three runs on four hits with six strikeouts and three walks across five innings while taking a loss against the Orioles on Saturday.
The left-hander has yielded three runs or fewer while pitching at least five innings in four straight starts, but he has yet to earn a win during this stretch. Milone's best attribute has been his strikeouts, though, as he has punched out at least six batters in six of his seven outings this season. He is 1-2 with a 3.35 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 37.2 innings in 2019. Milone will start next at the Astros on Friday.
Milone will be used as a traditional starter rather than as a bulk reliever in Saturday's game against the Orioles, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone delivered impressive results while working behind an opener in his last three turns through the rotation, garnering a 2.55 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 17.2 innings over that span. The southpaw's success may have motivated manager Scott Servais to give Milone another look in the traditional starting role, which should give the southpaw an opportunity to cover more innings than he would as a bulk reliever. If Milone fails to maintain his strong form of late in Saturday's outing, he could return to bulk-relief duty the next time his turn in the rotation comes up.
Milone will work as the primary pitcher Saturday against the Orioles, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone has pitched well behind an opener in each of his past three appearances, so he'll continue to work in that role for the time being. The southpaw owns a 2.55 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 13:1 K:BB in three outings as a primary pitcher (17.2 innings), which is a step above his 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 15 innings as a starter (three starts). It remains to be seen who will serve as the opener ahead of him Saturday.
Milone threw 6.1 innings as the primary pitcher against the Royals on Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits over 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking none as the Mariners lost 6-4. He didn't factor into the decision.
Milone put in another good performance as the primary pitcher, but he wouldn't get the win as Anthony Bass blew the save after giving up an eighth-inning two-run homer to Jorge Soler. It remains to be seen if the Mariners continue to use him in this role, but Milone's numbers on the season are solid so far, as he's now sporting a 3.03 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP and a 32:5 K:BB over 32.2 innings.
Milone will serve as the primary pitcher Monday against the Royals, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Taylor Scott is working as the opener, with Milone set to follow and cover the majority of innings. The southpaw has pitched well as a bulk reliever in his last two trips to the mound, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven across 11.1 innings.
Milone is expected to work behind an opening pitcher in Monday's game against the Royals, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Seattle hasn't formally clarified its plans for Monday's game, but Milone will be in line to cover the majority of the innings for the team regardless if he's deployed out of the bullpen or as a traditional starter. The lefty has fared well as a bulk reliever in his last two turns, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk over 11.1 innings.
Milone gave up three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out six through six innings of relief work against the Twins on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
After Gerson Bautista pitched 1.1 innings to open the game, Milone cruised through the next five innings before running into trouble in the eighth by allowing two runs. The Mariners have used an opener in front of Milone with success in his last two appearances, as the veteran southpaw owns a 3.24 ERA and a 7:1 K:BB over 11.1 innings in that pair of outings.
Milone will follow an opener Wednesday against the Twins, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Milone has a 3.10 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 20.1 innings this season. He pitched well following an opener Thursday against the Astros, allowing just one run over 5.1 innings.
Milone tossed 5.1 innings as the primary pitcher against the Astros on Thursday, giving up one earned run on three hits, striking out one and walking one as the Mariners fell 8-7 in 14 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.
Working behind opener Austin Adams, Milone put in a solid effort, but he inherited a two-run deficit as the Astros jumped on Adams in the first inning. The veteran has pitched well over his four appearances for Seattle so far, as he's now sporting a 3.10 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and a 20:5 K:BB over 20.1 innings.
Milone will work as the Mariners' bulk reliever behind opener Austin Adams in Thursday's game against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Milone was effective in his first two starts after being called up from Triple-A Tacoma on May 21 but ran into trouble his first time through the order in his most recent outing against the Angels last weekend. In an effort to enhance Milone's effectiveness against a quality Houston lineup, the Mariners will deploy the right-handed Adams ahead of the southpaw. Adams hasn't exceeded two frames in any of his relief appearances this season, so Milone should be on track to cover the bulk of the innings Thursday and is the likeliest Mariners pitcher to factor into the decision.
Milone gave up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks across 4.1 innings in a 6-3 loss to the Angels on Saturday. He struck out six but did not factor in the decision.
Milone ran into trouble during the first inning, when he served up a two-run shot to Albert Pujols, and he ended up needing 96 pitches to record only 13 outs. The 32-year-old has pitched well enough in his three starts, with a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB over 15 innings, but he has a tough matchup versus the Astros on Thursday.
Milone (1-1) picked up the win against the Rangers on Monday, giving up two earned runs on four hits over 5.2 innings, striking out seven and walking one as the Mariners prevailed 6-2.
Coming off a solid effort in his season debut, Milone turned in another good outing and picked up his first win of the season. With Felix Hernandez (lat) on the injured list, Milone should continue to hold down the fifth spot in the rotation until he returns.
Milone (0-1) took the loss Tuesday, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over five innings while striking out six as the Mariners were downed 5-3 by the Rangers.
The veteran left-hander gave Seattle a solid effort in his first big-league start of the season, but the offense didn't get going until after Milone had left the game. The club hasn't yet announced whether he'll stick in the rotation, but this performance was likely good enough to earn him at least one more turn.
