Tommy Milone has been horrible for the Twins since coming over in a trade from the A’s on July 31 and now he’s been scratched from his scheduled Sunday start with what the team is calling a “tired arm.”

Milone has allowed 21 runs in 21 innings for the Twins spread over five starts, including a 12/11 K/BB ratio. He lasted just 3.2 innings Tuesday versus the White Sox.

Logan Darnell–who’s one of the Twins’ many September call-ups–seems like the leading candidate to make the spot start in Milone’s place against the Angels.

Sam Fuld, the journeyman outfielder Minnesota traded to Oakland for Milone, has hit .228 with a .602 OPS in 31 games since the swap.

    How does a “tired arm” differ from a “dead arm.”

      There is a funeral for it, if the arm is dead.

      In those instances when the arm is just “mostly dead”, the pitcher will be referred to Miracle Max.

    I’d have thought it would be a tired neck from that thing whipping around so much.
