RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Milone was traded to Minnesota in late July after he couldn't hold a spot in the Oakland rotation despite a 3.55 ERA. While his Oakland numbers looked good at first glance, he struck out just 61 batters over 96.1 innings, while pitching more than half of his innings at pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum. After he was traded to Minnesota and called up to the majors, he was hit hard, giving up 17 earned runs in 21.2 innings. His main problem was a career-low 5.7 K/9. He has good enough control (2.8 BB/9) that a bounceback to his previous strikeout rate could return him to the form he saw in Oakland, where his home-road splits were not overly uneven. He'll compete for the fifth starter role with the Twins this spring.

2014

After a strong 2012, Milone struggled in 2013 and lost his spot in the A's rotation and even spent some time in Triple-A. Milone's strikeout rate rose from 6.5 to 7.3 K/9, but his walk rate and home-run rate also rose, which led to his ERA climbing above 4.00 on the season. Milone started the season well and had a 3.13 ERA on May 7, but he could not maintain that form and found himself on the outside of the A's rotation by August. If Milone can go back to limiting walks at his previous rates, while maintaining his increased strikeout rate, he stands a chance to earn the fifth starter role in a competition coming out of spring training.

2013

Milone came over from the Nationals in the Gio Gonzalez trade and slotted right into the A's rotation. While he won't overpower anyone, his impeccable command kept him in the rotation all year and allowed him to rack up 15 wins. Milone is unlikely to become an asset in strikeouts and his margin for error is slim with his stuff, but he will provide a large volume of innings with decent ratios. He is a flyball pitcher so he is greatly aided by playing in Oakland, and Milone can at least be targeted late in drafts and in daily formats for home games. Keep in mind, however, that he carried a 4.83 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 16 road starts thanks in large part to 18 homers allowed in 91.1 innings in those outings.

2012

Milone spent most of 2011 with Syracuse, but did make five starts for the Nationals down the stretch. He features a fastball that averaged 87.9 mph last season along with a change-up (79.4 mph), cutter (84.5 mph) and a slow curveball (74.2 mph). His control is impeccable, as he's walked only 20 batters in 174.1 innings. However, he is an extreme flyball pitcher, which will be a problem when he logs more innings in the majors. He should start the season in Triple-A, but might vie for a spot in the A's rotation after being sent to Oakland as part of the Gio Gonzalez deal.
