A's pitcher Tom Milone
During the offseason, the Oakland Athletics traded Gio Gonzalez to the Washington Nationals for a slew of prospects.
Many fans were devastated at the news of one of Oakland's fan-favorites leaving.
Gonzalez is but a distant memory now.
In his first game with the Nationals, he lasted 3.2 innings, earning a 9.82 ERA.
In return, the A's received Brad Peacock, Tom Milone, Derek Norris and A.J. Cole.
The slide prior pointed out Norris' Triple-A stats.
Peacock has pitched in one game for Sacramento, earning a win with a 3.00 ERA.
Milone has dazzled so far. Expected to compete for the fifth spot in the rotation, he easily won the third spot instead.
He's already pitched an eight inning gem in which he only allowed three hits and no runs.
