Twins Acquire Tommy Milone

Trade Deadline Day is here, and the Twins have already made a trade. Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Minnesota Twins have acquired soft-tossing left-hander Tommy Milone from the Oakland A's. The Twins sent outfielder Sam Fuld to the A's in return.

In potentially related news, hearing that the Twins are going to call up Kennys Vargas.

Tommy Milone has spent parts of the past three seasons with the A's after a couple of games with the Nationals in 2011. His career record is 32-22 with a 3.84 ERA.

In 2014, he is 6-3 with a 3.55 ERA in 16 starts, but with the recent additions to the A's rotation (Jeff Samardijza, Jason Hammel and Jon Lester), he has been squeezed out of the rotation. He reportedly asked for a trade earlier this week. According to a press release from the Twins, Milone will report to Rochester first.

Vargas has had a breakout year in New Britain for the Twins this year. Though he has slumped of late, the large, switch-hitting DH/1B has a lot of power and will likely get an opportunity to play a lot. In case you were curious, Vargas will wear uniform #19.

Edit by Brock Beauchamp:
Sorry folks, there was a technical snafu on this article that was the fault of yours truly.
