Milton On The DL
Earlier this evening, the Cincinnati Reds placed left-hander Eric Milton on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained pitching elbow.
Over six starts this season (31.1 innings), Milton has struggled to a 0-4 record and 5.17 ERA. He is a rather unimpressive 87-84 with a 5.01 ERA in 10 big league seasons, including 226 appearances with the Minnesota Twins, Philadelphia Phillies and Reds. At 31-years-old, he is entering the third and final season of a $25 million contract.
To replace Milton on the roster, Cincinnati activated righty Jared Burton from the 15-day DL, where he was sidelined since the beginning of April with a strained left hammy. He pitched only once this year on April 4th against the Chicago Cubs, where he walked three batters and retired just one.
