Milone (biceps) has started a throwing program and could return by the end of August, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone will likely work in relief in September when he returns as the Twins will likely give other players spots in the rotation with an eye toward 2017.

Milone's MRI on Friday revealed no structural damage, confirming that he is dealing with tendinitis in his biceps, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is good news for Milone's long-term availability, as he should be able to avoid surgery, but he is still out indefinitely with tendinitis in his biceps. The Twins will continue to get by just fine without Milone, who had posted a 5.68 ERA and just 43 strikeouts in 65 innings prior to suffering the injury.

Milone (biceps) will hit the disabled list with left biceps tendinitis, Brandon Warne of Cold Omaha reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone was roughed up by the Astros during his spot start Thursday, and underwent an MRI on his shoulder Friday. The 29-year-old will miss the next couple weeks depending on the severity of his injury, and the Twins called up Pat Dean from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move Friday.

Milone will undergo an MRI on his shoulder Friday, LaVelle Neal of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone was not 100 percent healthy for his start Thursday and it showed as he was shelled for five runs in three innings against the Astros. Friday's MRI figures to uncover what's ailing Milone's shoulder, but if he is to miss additional time, it'd be another blow to an already struggling Twins rotation.

Milone (3-4) gave up five runs on five hits while walking two and striking out one in just three innings during a loss against the Astros on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Milone was moved to the bullpen on Aug. 1, but because of Thursday's doubleheader, the left-hander was called on to start. With another poor outing, Milone's ERA as a starter ballooned to 5.46, making it likely the 29-year-old will be shifted back to the bullpen

Milone will receive the start in Game 2 of the team's doubleheader against the Astros on Thursday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone has pitched a couple of time out of the bullpen since being moved there Aug. 1, potentially limiting his innings Thursday. The Twins will recall Andrew Albers to provide some added depth in a bullpen that could be taxed as part of the doubleheader.

Milone will move to the bullpen with Tyler Duffey set to start Wednesday against Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

It's a surprise that Duffey will move back to the rotation in place of Milone as Duffey has struggled, but the Twins are likely looking toward 2017 with this move. Still, Milone could be back in the rotation or used as a spot starter at some point.

Milone allowed four runs on nine hits, struck out three and walked none over 5.1 in a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander was cruising, retiring 10 in a row, but he then gave up runs in three consecutive innings (the fourth, fifth and sixth), which included a solo homer in the sixth to extend the White Sox lead to three. Fortunately, the Twins offense bailed him out, so he took a no-decision. Milone is 3-3 with a 5.13 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 39 strikeouts in 59.2 innings this season. His next start will be Thursday versus the Indians.

Milone (3-3) gave up eight runs (four earned) on 10 hits, including three home runs, in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox. He struck out four without walking a batter.

EDGE Analysis

While a Miguel Sano error in the fifth inning saved some damage to his ERA, Milone's inability to keep the ball away from the middle of the plate is what really doomed him. On the bright side, it was the first time this year he's avoided walking a batter in a start. He'll next take the mound Saturday at home against the White Sox.

Milone (3-2) fell two outs short of a complete games, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Milone held the Tigers scoreless until the ninth when he seemed to run out of gas. He hadn't pitched more than six innings in a game all season until Tuesday's gem. The southpaw has won all three of his starts this month, but still owns an unappealing 4.71 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Milone will face a tough test in Boston on Sunday for his next start.
