He's not on the 40 man... So that hurts him.

His S/O per 9 innings is astounding compared to the stuff he has.

Leads IL in K's with 95.

Sporting a cool 95/5 K/BB.

WHIP now down to 1 flat.

I don't care if he throws 80 MPH, I want to see what he can do against the big boys.

I don't think he will keep up the K's as he advances.

You're right. He seems to be improving with every level he goes.

2009 (A+) - 6.3 K/9
2010 (AA) - 8.8 K/9
2011 (AAA) - 9.5 K/9

i ment advances pro. But, ok. I'm sure a soft throwing lefty will strikeout a lot of pros.

I'm not sure the pool of natural "soft-throwers" that get the opportunity to face MLB batters (he already is facing pro batters) is sufficient to make such a judgement.

Also, I doubt that tons of soft-throwers fit Milones exact MiLB profile. He has been pretty astounding.

Sorry if this has already been posted, and take it for what it's worth - I'm posting it without prejudice:

----------
Charlie (Bethesda, MD): Do you think Tom Milone can spin his high K/9 and low BB/9 into major league success? Or is the high-80s just too slow for a major league starter?

Kevin Goldstein: Maybe as a No. 5. MAYBE.
------------

I never said he wouldn't be good. I think he could maybe be a starter someday. Just never a K guy............''..

Meh, Goldstein always disses the soft-tossers.

To be fair to Goldstein et al, a left-handed pitcher who throws 85 but somehow is striking out more and more guys every time he gets promoted is a completely baffling phenomenon. There was buzz that he adopted a cut fastball, Mariano-style, but I don't know if that explains the whole thing. Which leaves anyone trying to figure out Milone from the stands to say, "??????"

This guy is absolutely tearing up Triple-A.  With 101 strikeouts and 5 walks in 96 innings, he leads all qualified pitchers in the International League with a :worship: 20.2 K/BB ratio.  The dude in second place has a ratio of 4.8

There are pitchers in the majors who have found success at 85, but very few of them are high strikeout guys.  The only one I can think of pitching right now is Marcum, and his fastball is a good two mph faster, and started out closer to 90.  That said, I think the low walk rate might carry over, and I definitely think he ought to be given a shot so we can see what he can do at the major league level.

I know a lot of people think Peacock should be next in line for a major league start... but I still hope Milone gets a shot sometime soon.

2011 Season

7-5, 3.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 107/7 K/BB, 9.35 K/9, 0.61 BB/9, 15.28 K/BB, 0.52 HR/9

Tom Milone interviewed after the game says he is ready for the next level. Bring him up followed by Peacock shortly afterward.

I would hope we can clear out 2 rotation spots with deadline moves so that Wang and Milone get a chance to show themselves.

While Peacock has the higher ceiling, he at least has AAA as the next step. He can replace Milone there.
