Milner was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Milner made two relief appearances with the major-league club after he was recalled Friday, and he allowed four hits and a walk while striking out two across a scoreless inning. The southpaw has tossed 11.1 scoreless innings in the minors this season, and he'll return to the Triple-A club ahead of the All-Star break. Right-hander Jandel Gustave will remain in the major-league bullpen after he served as the 27th man in Wednesday's doubleheader.

Milner made three relief appearances during his most recent stint in the minors, and he allowed two hits and no walks while striking out five in 2.1 innings.

The Brewers optioned Milner to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The lefty has struggled since joining the Brewers' bullpen, posting a 5.91 ERA in 10.2 innings. Milner's 14:1 K:BB has certainly impressed, though, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him back with the big-league club at some point this season.

Milner gives the Brewers an additional lefty in the bullpen, with Eric Lauer heading to the minors to stretch out as a starter in a corresponding move.

Milner was non-tendered by the Angels in early December after stumbling to a 8.10 ERA across 13.1 innings in 2020. He will now compete for a spot on Milwaukee's roster next spring.

Milner (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Milner has been sidelined with right back spasms since Aug. 26, but he'll return to action after spending just over the minimum of 10 days on the injured list. The southpaw has been effective as a low-leverage reliever this season as he carries a 3.86 ERA and 0.71 WHIP over seven innings.
Milner was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right back spasms, retroactive to Aug. 26.

Milner will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.

He appeared in just four games at the major-league level last season, but posted a 3.06 ERA with 12 saves in 50 appearances with Triple-A Durham. The lefty will offer bullpen depth at the major-league level and is unlikely to earn any high-leverage work.

Milner entered the contest in the fifth and surrendered a game-tying home run to Eric Stamets, but he was able to scoop up the win when Los Angeles reclaimed the lead on Michael Hermosillo's RBI single in the bottom of the inning. While he was a member of the Rays organization last season, Milner was shut down in early September with a cervical nerve injury, but his ability to pitch in the Angels' spring opener suggests he's back to full health.

Milner was sent to St. Petersburg to see a specialist after experiencing neck and back discomfort, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 28-year-old southpaw made one appearance with the Rays back on Aug. 20, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over two innings against the Mariners.
