Milone (elbow) will hit the open market this winter, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone spent the majority of 2017 with the Mets after being DFA'd by Milwaukee in early May, but went on to have the worst year of his career. He only appeared in 17 big-league contests -- including eight starts -- but posted a 7.63 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 48.1 innings. The 30-year-old southpaw will look to latch on with a club that needs pitching help this offseason, but likely won't end finding a spot in a rotation in 2018.

Milone will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with a bone spur in his left elbow, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Milone had been dealing with elbow soreness for the past couple days, and will not return to the field this weekend, ending his 2017 season. There shouldn't be any need for concern looking ahead to next season, as the left-hander should be fully recovered in the near future.

Milone allowed one run on six hits and one walk across 4.1 innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Nationals. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Milone opened the game with four scoreless innings, but he ran into a spot of trouble in the fifth, when he allowed three consecutive hits to plate a run. He was removed somewhat abruptly with just 82 pitches under his belt, but he bullpen escaped the jam as the Mets went on to win by one. Milone had struggled mightily in his three previous outings, allowing a whopping 17 runs in just 11.2 innings, so this effort was a bit more encouraging. The left-hander is not currently scheduled to make another start with the Mets, meaning he could slide back in to the bullpen as a long relief option.

Milone (1-3) gave up six runs (five earned) on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 4.2 innings en route to a loss Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets are rapidly learning what every other team Milone has played for already knew about the 30-year-old: He isn't particularly good, and his left-handedness isn't reason enough for him to stick in the majors. Arizona jumped on him early, with J.D. Martinez ripping a three-run homer in the top of the first; Milone ended up allowing runs in four of the five innings that saw him take the mound. While the injury-created gaps in the Mets' rotation may mean he retains a starting role for a while, there's pretty much nothing to see here from a fantasy perspective.

Milone is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Steven Matz is unable to pitch due to a nerve issue in his elbow, so Milone -- who returned from a knee issue Saturday -- will step into the Mets' rotation to make his seventh start of the big-league campaign. He compiled a 7.62 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in six starts (26 innings) between the Brewers and Mets earlier in the season, so it may be a good opportunity to stack Arizona hitters against him in daily competitions. It's unclear if he'll stick in the rotation if Matz is out for an extended period of time, though that will likely be determined following Tuesday's outing.

Milone (knee) was activated from the 60-day DL on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He posted a 4.95 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 20 innings (four starts) while rehabbing with Double-A Binghamton. Prior to his injury, he compiled a 7.91 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in 33 innings, splitting time with the Brewers and Mets. Milone will likely be limited to a mop-up role out of the big-league bullpen.

Milone (knee) began a rehab assignment with the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Mets on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander faced eight batters in his inaugural outing, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out three in 1.2 innings of work. The results are less important than how he felt during the outing, but given that he only face eight batters, it's likely that he'll need two or three more rehab starts before returning to the big-league bullpen.

Milone (knee) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Michael Baron of SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old went on the DL in late May with a sprained left knee and looks to have made little headway in his recovery. Milone's move to the 60-day DL opens a place on the 40-man roster for right-hander Chasen Bradford as the Mets continue their search for pitching options.

Milone was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a sprained left knee, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when Milone sustained the injury, though it could have been during his last start; he lasted just 1.1 innings and was clobbered for eight runs (seven earned). It's unclear how long the 30-year-old will be sidelined with the issue, though a timetable should become clearer as the Mets release more on his status. Travis d'Arnaud was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
