Tommy Milone SP OAK 2 Days

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "thought to be considering" a trade for Tommy Milone.

Milone requested a trade from the A's last week, as he became buried on their depth chart following the acquisition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. As Spencer notes, the lefty is appealing to the Marlins because he won't reach free agency until 2018. Spencer also lists Wade Miley and Ian Kennedy as possible targets for the Marlins, with Kennedy being the unlikelier of the two. Miley might also be a long shot, as FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported earlier this month that the D'Backs have told teams the southpaw is unavailable.

Tommy Milone pitched six scoreless innings, striking out six, in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Friday.

Milone allowed four hits, walked one and struck out six. He didn't get any run support in this one, but he did extend his streak to 11 straight starts without a loss. The A's opened the year 0-5 in his starts, but they're 9-2 since.

Tommy Milone improved to 6-3, allowing three runs (two earned) over seven innings as the Athletics defeated the Marlins 4-3 on Sunday.

A strong outing for Milone, as he allowed only four hits -- including Marcell Ozuna's sixth-inning solo home run -- while walking two and striking out three. The lefty now owns a 3.79 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 55/25 K/BB ratio. Milone will go up against the Blue Jays at home in his next start.

Tommy Milone allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.

Milone gave up solo homers to David Ross and Mike Napoli among his eight hits allowed, as he's served up six home runs in his last five starts. He walked one and struck out three in the game. Fortunately for Milone, his offense bailed him out and saved him from taking his fourth loss, and he still hasn't lost a game since May 3. The 27-year-old will carry a 3.89 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Sunday's contest against the Marlins in Miami.

Tommy Milone beat the Rangers by giving up three runs over 5 2/3 innings as the A's took a 10-6 decision on Tuesday.

You didn't expect him to lose at home, did you? Milone wasn't impressive, striking out three, walking one, and coughing up five hits, including a Rougned Odor solo homer. The left-hander has won five straight decisions over his last eight outings, a stretch that has knocked his ERA down from 5.86 to 3.56. Oakland has won six consecutive Milone starts. The pitcher came in 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in five home starts, and he remains a great matchup play (so long as you always bench him on the road). Milone welcomes the Red Sox to town on Sunday.

Tommy Milone limited the Angels to a sole run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings and picked up the win as the Athletics raced to a 7-1 win on Wednesday.

Milone struck out four and walked two. After averaging one homer allowed per start over his last seven outings, Milone kept Los Angeles in the stadium. This was a rare case of road success for the diminutive lefty, who entered with a 5.40 ERA and 1.44 WHIP away from Oakland. We'd still suggest benching him in road starts across all formats. Now 4-3 with a 3.47 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, Milone welcomes Yu Darvish and the Rangers to California on Tuesday.

Tommy Milone delivered a quality start in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, allowing three runs on eight hits over his six innings of work.

The veteran southpaw punched out three on the night without walking a batter. The bulk of the damage against him came via the longball, with Manny Machado and Chris Davis each bashing solo homers. He has done an admirable job in the rotation this season, compiling a 3.68 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 42/19 K/BB ratio through 66 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Angels in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Tommy Milone spun 6 2/3 shutout innings in Monday's 10-0 victory over the Tigers.

The Tigers never really got much going against the left-hander, as Milone surrendered only four hits, walks two and struck out six. Milone has continued a career trend this year by being terrific at home (1.35 ERA over four starts) and not so good on the road (5.60 ERA over five starts). He'll be at O.co Coliseum again this weekend versus the Angels.
