Description: Twins starter Tommy Milone threw a scoreless inning in his return to the mound on Saturday.
Insight: Milone had not pitched since Sept. 2 due to shoulder fatigue and a neck injury. He did not receive another start, but the scoreless inning is encouraging. Milone finishes the year with a 6-4 record and 4.19 ERA in 118 innings.

Description: Twins starter Tommy Milone is unlikely to start on Monday due to a sore neck.
Insight: Milone was already pushed back to start Monday when Friday's game was rained out. With only two weeks remaining in the season, it is possible Milone is done for the year. Anthony Swarsak is the best candidate to start in Milone's place on Monday.

Description: The Athletics have traded left-hander Tommy Milone to the Twins for Sam Fuld.
Insight: Milone went 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over his last 11 starts but was sent down when Oakland traded for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. He was moved further down the starting pitcher hierarchy when Oakland acquired Jon Lester from Boston on Thursday. It's surprising the A's couldn't get more than Sam Fuld, who's a strong defensive outfielder but isn't a good hitter. Oakland waived Fuld in April but needed him back with Coco Crisp (neck) hurting and Yoenis Cespedes moved in the deal for Lester.
7/21/2014 5:41:00 PM
Description: Athletics left-hander Tommy Milone has asked the team to trade him, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Insight: Milone went 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over his last 11 starts but was sent down when Oakland traded for Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. The A's are not eager to move him because he may be needed as a replacement later this season. Milone has an ERA of 2.96 at O.co Coliseum and 4.52 on the road in his career, so a trade could hurt his fantasy value depending on where he lands.
7/5/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Tommy Milone shut out the Blue Jays over six innings Friday and his reward is a trip to Triple-A Sacramento.
Insight: He's a casualty of the trade with the Cubs which brought Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland. Milone was 0-3 with a 5.86 ERA after his first five starts, but he's gone 6-3 with a 2.62 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over his last 11. He'll be back.
7/4/2014 9:05:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Tommy Milone shut out the Blue Jays over six innings Friday. He allowed four hits, walked one and struck out six in a no decision.
Insight: Milone was 0-3 with a 5.86 ERA after his first five starts, but he's gone 6-3 with a 2.62 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over his last 11. The left-hander has a 2.74 ERA at O.co Coliseum and a 4.40 ERA on the road in 2014 (2.94 career ERA at O.co Coliseum, 4.52 ERA on the road).
6/29/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Athletics lefty Tommy Milone won his sixth straight decision Sunday at Miami.
Insight: Milone was 0-3 with a 5.86 ERA on May 3; he's now 6-3 with a 3.79 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. His fantasy value is limited to AL-only and 12-team mixed leagues because he has just 55 Ks in 90 1/3 innings.
5/26/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Athletics lefty Tommy Milone blanked Detroit in 6 2/3 innings Monday.
Insight: He's allowed three runs on 16 hits over 26 1/3 innings his last four starts (1.03 ERA). The Athletics' offense is crushing everyone and Milone is your best chance to get a pitcher attached to it with Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, Jesse Chavez and Drew Pomeranz all owned in more than 50 percent of leagues.
5/26/2014 8:54:00 AM
Description: Athletics lefty Tommy Milone may be just 2-3 on the season, but he's 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in his last three starts.
Insight: He'll face a Tigers team which has lost six of its last seven in a matchup against Drew Smyly.
3/14/2014 5:55:00 PM
Description: Athletics lefty Tommy Milone has a good chance of beginning the season in the rotation following injuries to Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin.

8/28/2013 8:54:00 PM
Description: The Athletics sent lefthander Tommy Milone down to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
Insight: They did it to make room on the roster for Brett Anderson. He'll be back up when the rosters expand to 40 at the start of September.
6/8/2013 8:18:00 PM
Description: A's lefty Tommy Milone pitched seven strong innings Saturday in a loss to the White Sox.
Insight: The game was tied 1-1 when Milone (7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K's) left so he had to settle for the no-decision. Over his last two appearances, Milone (6-5, 3.69 ERA) has a 1.93 ERA with 11 strikeouts and just one walk.
5/7/2013 9:42:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Tommy Milone has lost four straight starts despite pitching to a 2.63 ERA in that span.
Insight: Milone (3-4, 3.13 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) struck out five and walked none over seven innings Tuesday against the Indians, but allowed one unearned run on five hits in a 1-0 loss. The left-hander has walked just six batters in 46 innings.
8/22/2012 9:48:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Tommy Milone turned in his best outing in more than a month Wednesday against the Twins. Milone held Minnesota to one run on just two hits in eight innings (1 BB, 5 K).
Insight: Milone (10-9, 3.87) came in having allowed 20 runs over his last 23 innings but he was having a nice season before that stretch and was sharp Wednesday. Give him a few more starts.
7/26/2012 10:05:00 PM
Description: A's lefty Tommy Milone entered Thursday with the third-lowest ERA in the American League for the month of July but he was roughed up by the Blue Jays as Oakland fell 10-4 in the series finale.
Insight: It wasn't all bad for Milone (9-7, 3.51 ERA), who struck out seven hitters in seven innings without walking a batter. The five earned runs were the most Milone has given up since June 13 when he let up eight in a 10-8 victory over Colorado.
6/21/2012 10:35:00 AM
Description: Oakland lefthander Tommy Milone kept the Dodgers in check for his first win since May 21st Wednesday night at the Oakland Coliseum. He allowed three hits and just one run over nine innings of work.
Insight: This was Milone's first major league complete game. Wednesday's effort was a drastic improvement over how Milone pitched in his last outing June 13th against Colorado (4 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 4 BBs).
6/7/2012 10:58:00 PM
Description: As good as Oakland starter Tommy Milone (6-5, 3.53 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) has been this season, stay away from him Friday at Arizona. Milone has gone 2-4 with a 6.23 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in six road starts.
Insight: Feel free to use Milone whenever he starts at home, where he is 4-1 with an ERA of 0.98 and a WHIP of 0.85 in five starts, but tomorrow would not be the day to utilize the Oakland Athletics lefty.
6/3/2012 10:07:00 PM
Description: Athletics starter Tommy Milone dropped to 6-5 despite holding Kansas City to two runs on eight hits in seven innings. Milone walked one and struck out six but former Athletics starter Vin Mazzaro shut Oakland out.
Insight: Milone was one of the pitchers whom Oakland acquired from Washington for Gio Gonzalez. The A's have had a revolving door of successful starters in the past 10 years who get shipped off for more prospects as soon as they become more expensive. Milone has continued that trend with his 3.53 ERA and 1.13 WHIP this season.
4/30/2012 10:51:00 PM
Description: Tommy Milone was bombed by Boston on Monday, giving up eight runs (seven earned) on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.
Insight: Don't give up on Milone based on one poor start. He was excellent in his other starts this season, going 3-1 with a 2.00 ERA before Monday's shelling.
4/18/2012 2:39:00 PM
Description: The best starting pitcher on the Oakland A's staff so far this season is 25-year-old Tom Milone. He's 1-1 with an ERA of 2.57 and a 0.857 WHIP.
Insight: The young lefthander looked great against Kansas City in his first outing (8.0 IP, 0 ER), but stumbled against Seattle giving up four runs in six innings. He looks like the real deal, but wins will be hard to come by with the inferior A's offense behind him.
