Brewers Designate Milone For Assignment

Antigo, WI, United States /

(St. Louis, MO)  —  Left hander Tommy Milone, who started the year in the Brewers’ rotation, has been sent to the minors. The Brewers designated the former Minnesota starter for assignment on Monday, after he gave up two homers in two innings of relief against Atlanta on Saturday. The Brewers called up reliever Rob Scahill from Triple “A” Colorado Springs to fill the open roster spot. The 30-year-old Milone was supposed to start the year in the Milwaukee bullpen, and he was promoted to the rotation after Matt Garza strained a groin, but since Garza returned, Milone struggled as a reliever, and he went 1-0 for the season with a six-point-four-three E-R-A in six total appearances. Manager Craig Counsell says Milone should be a starter, and the Brewers don’t have a place for that, so if he clears waivers, the skipper hopes he’ll be in the rotation for Colorado Springs.
