Minnesota Twins Avoid Arbitration With Tommy Milone


More Tommy Milone is coming your way, Minnesota Twins fans. I can feel the excitement just throbbing throughout the heartland of Twins Territory. Millions and millions of Milone-shirsey owners can sleep easy for the rest of the 2015 season.

Mr. Milone will make $2.775 million in the coming season.

Sadly, Tommy Milone is not related to the bullpen heartthrob Sam ‘May Day’ Malone, of Boston Red Sox fame.

Tommy Milone came to the Twins in middle of the 2014 season from the Oakland A’s. Milone did not exactly find a lot of success in his first season in Minnesota. Milone posted a 7.06 ERA in a Twins uniform

Milone appeared in six games, five starts, in 2014. Milone has a career ERA of 3.98, so it is hoped that Milone will come back down to Earth soon. Milone is strongly in contention for the fifth spot in the major league rotation.

Milone has been in the big leagues for four years. He debuted with the Washington Nationals, before heading to Oakland for three years. Milone found modest success in Oakland. Milone’s stat line in Oakland includes a 31-22 record with a 3.84 ERA and a 1.263 WHIP.
