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: 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.

Tommy Milone earns goofy three-inning save

Tommy Milone earned a three-inning save on Saturday night. Pitching in a game which had long been decided by the Blue Jays offense, Milone worked three effective innings striking out six while allowing just one hit. Milone’s team won the game 15-1 and his presence on the mound was a...

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: 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

Signed a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday that included an invitation to spring training. The move gives Toronto some veteran starting depth or a possible long-man for the bullpen. The club also recently signed fellow southpaw Francisco Liriano. Milone hasn't been fantasy relevant for some time although he did pitch OK last season for the Baltimore Orioles (3.91 FIP, 24 K%) before melting down after a move to the Atlanta Braves (7.33 FIP, 17 K%). Overall, his walk rate of 3% was one of the best rates in the league but he allowed nine home runs in just 39 innings. He's predominantly a fastball-changeup pitcher.--Marc Hulet - RotoBaller.

Nonroster invitee to Opening Day starter: Orioles’ Tommy Milone recognizes uniqueness of opportunity

The veteran left-hander wasn’t a member of the Orioles when the original spring training began, signing a minor league deal with the organization a couple of days after camp opened. He wasn’t even a member of Baltimore’s 40-man roster until last week, when the team selected his contract. But he’ll find himself on the mound at Fenway Park on Friday, facing the Boston Red Sox as the Orioles’ Opening Day starter in an assignment he quickly admitted he didn’t envision when he put pen to paper in February.
