Braves | Rotation in flux

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 14:02:18 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Ervin Santana will pitch Friday, July 18, the team's first game after the All-Star break, against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gonzalez has not confirmed the rotation after Santana, but said it depends on if SP Julio Teheran will get one or two days of extra rest. Teheran will pitch Saturday, July 19, or Sunday, July 20. Expect left-handed SPs Mike Minor and Alex Wood to be split up in the rotation and not pitch consecutively. Wood and Minor will either pitch the second and fourth or the third and fifth games out of the break. SP Aaron Harang will pitch the fourth or fifth game coming out of the break.

Fantasy Tip: Santana gets an excellent chance to start strong in the second half against the Phillies' weak offense. Otherwise, check back for further details, but the Miami Marlins head to Atlanta Monday, July 21, which is another plus-matchup.

Braves | Mike Minor struggling against left-handed batters

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 12:19:39 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor is allowing a .375 opponents batting average to left-handed batters this season. It is the third highest mark in the major leagues. Minor is winless in his last eight starts and has allowed opponents to hit .311 against him during that span.

Fantasy Tip: Consider benching Minor until he turns his season around. He was among the league's best pitchers from June 2012 to September 2013, so the potential to rebound is there.

Braves | Mike Minor winless in last seven starts

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 15:03:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor failed to win Thursday, June 26, pushing his winless streak to seven games. Minor last won Monday, May 19, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of a tough road start at Coors Field, Minor has pitched well. The lack of wins are frustraing, but the Braves aren't providing much offensive support, either. Continue to view Minor as mid-tier starting pitcher, although he has the potential to flash high-end production.
