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.

Wed, 07 May 2014 20:11:01 -0700

While nothing has been made official, the Atlanta Braves will include SP Gavin Floyd in the rotation, meaning someone will be bumped out. SP Alex Wood seems like the most likely candidate to head to the bullpen over SPs Aaron Harang, Mike Minor, Ervin Santana and Julio Teheran.

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 09:03:20 -0700

The Atlanta Braves activated SP Mike Minor (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 30.

Braves | Mike Minor to make debut Friday

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 13:27:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will make his first start of the season against the San Francisco Giants Friday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance that Minor is available in the majority of mixed leagues. Take a chance on him now if you're looking for alternative pitching options. The injury this spring clouds the fact that he was starting to look like an elite pitcher at the end of the 2013 season.

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:04:30 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will pitch once more for Double-A Mississippi Friday, April 25, before returning to the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: This means Minor will be activated to make his season debut sometime next week. He's expected to replace David Hale in the rotation. Minor may start slow out of the gates, but he's worth watching in deep mixed leagues.

Braves | Mike Minor, Gavin Floyd getting closer

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 16:28:05 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) allowed a hit in five scoreless innings for Single-A Rome last Friday and is set to join the team's starting rotation April 23 or April 25. SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) gave up two runs (one earned) and three hits in 3 2/3 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett in his third rehab outing Friday. Floyd will make three more starts before coming off the disabled list in a few weeks. Minor will make his final rehab start Friday, April 18, for Double-A Mississippi.

Fantasy Tip: Minor is much more intriguing with way more upside than Minor. Consider adding Minor this week if you have the room.
