Milner (neck) signed a minor-league contract which includes an invitation to spring training with Los Angeles on Monday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Milner was shut down near the end of last season due to a neck injury, but he's expected to compete for a spot in the bullpen during spring training. He appeared in just four games for the Rays in 2019, allowing three runs on four hits while fanning three over 3.2 innings of work.

Stat Review
How does Hoby Milner compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.
  • BB/9

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Milner opened the season on the Phillies’ roster but pitched just 4.2 innings for the team before being sent down in mid-April and eventually shipped to the Rays in mid-July. He finished the year having allowed eight runs (six earned) with an 8:5 K:BB in 7.1 big-league innings. Through parts of two seasons, the 27-year-old is looking very much like an up-and-down lefty reliever who could see major-league action for several years but who is unlikely to stick in a regular role unless his profile improves. There’s currently little reason to believe that will happen. He seems to be getting all he can out of a fastball that averages below 90 mph and a slider that sits in the high 70s, leading him to a career major-league strikeout rate of 17.0% and a walk rate of 11.9%. He’ll have a role as long as he continues to hold lefties to a .177/.292/.277 line, but that role is unlikely to be a fantasy-relevant one.
Milner's 2017 season began with the disappointment of being offered back to the Phillies after failing to stick with the Indians as a Rule 5 pick. He earned a promotion to Philadelphia in June, however, and stuck with the team for the rest of the season. Milner put up an impressive 2.01 ERA in the 31.1 innings he threw as a left-handed reliever, though his underlying numbers suggest that level of performance won't be repeatable. Milner's strikeout rate (6.3 K/9) and walk rate (4.6 BB/9) were well below average, and his HR/FB rate (6.1 percent) is unsustainably low. Those numbers add up to a 5.54 xFIP, and if his ERA falls back to that number next year, Milner could easily find himself out of a job. A mediocre reliever without a guaranteed bullpen spot can be left alone in most leagues, though Milner at least has a clearer path to playing time than he would in other organizations, as the Phillies' bullpen is low on viable lefties.
