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.

Milone won't make his scheduled start Saturday against the Pirates due to a knee issue, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Mets were already looking at alternate options for Saturday's start, this is the first mention of any sort of injury. It's unclear when the knee issue cropped up, or how long it will keep him sidelined, but more should be known once further information is released by the team. With Steven Matz (elbow) and Seth Lugo (elbow) returning from the DL in the near future, Milone likely won't return to rotation once he's healthy. Look for either Josh Smoker or Rafael Montero to take the ball for Saturday's contest in Pittsburgh.

Milone could be replaced for his scheduled Saturday start against the Pirates, Matt Ehalt of NorthJersey.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran left-hander was roughed up in his last start Sunday, allowing eight runs (seven earned) over just 1.1 innings against the Angels, so manager Terry Collins isn't ruling out an alternative option. Rafael Montero or recently-recalled Josh Smoker would be the likely candidates to replace him.

Milone (1-2) coughed up eight runs (seven earned) on seven hits and two walks over just 1.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Angels. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

His ERA through three starts with the Mets now stands at a ghastly 10.50, and the left-hander's time in the Mets rotation is running out with both Steven Matz (elbow) and Seth Lugo (elbow) getting close to coming off the DL. Milone is scheduled for at least one more start Friday in Pittsburgh.

Milone (1-1) gave up five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over 5.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Most of the damage against Milone came in a four-run third inning, which was capped off by Paul Goldschmidt's steal of home. Milone later served up a homer, marking his sixth consecutive appearance with at least one home run allowed. His performance between Milwaukee and New York this season has been uninspiring (6.25 ERA, 1.52 WHIP), to put it nicely, but the Mets may not a choice but to let Milone eat innings at the back end of the rotation until Steven Matz (elbow) returns from the DL.

Milone tossed five innings in his Mets debut Wednesday, giving up two runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Although he left with a lead, he didn't figure into the decision thanks to closer Jeurys Familia's ninth-inning implosion. This was a nice first impression for the 30-year-old Milone, who appears likely to hold down a rotation spot until the Mets get Steven Matz back from an elbow injury.

Milone will start Wednesday against the Giants, manager Terry Collins confirmed Monday according to Marc Carig of Newsday.

EDGE Analysis

Milone will slide into the spot vacated by Rafael Montero, as expected. He posted a decent 3.92 ERA over 23 starts for the Twins in 2015, but Milone has served up 21 home runs and a 5.88 ERA over 90.1 innings over the past two seasons combined.

The Mets could have Milone join the rotation to start Wednesday's game against the Giants, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rafael Montero received the first crack at stepping in as the Mets' fifth starter while Noah Syndergaard (back) is on the 60-day disabled list, but he didn't impress in his outing Friday against the Marlins, surrendering five runs on seven hits and three walks in 3.2 innings. In order to address their dwindling rotation depth, the Mets decided to put in a waiver claim for Milone, who compiled a 6.43 ERA in 21 innings with the Brewers. The soft-tossing lefty posted a 16:2 K:BB ratio, but his inability to keep the ball in the yard -- he surrendered six homers -- may continue to inflate his ERA as he moves to the Mets. Expect the team to officially name either Montero or Milone as Wednesday's starter following Monday's series opener.

Milone was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Milone was designated for assignment by the Brewers on the first of May after posting a 6.43 ERA over 21 innings, including three starts and three relief appearances. The Mets' rotation is in shambles at the moment, so it makes sense as to why the team has decided to claim the 30-year-old southpaw. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that Milone is a candidate to soon replace Rafael Montero in the starting rotation.
