Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) said he's completely healthy this year after dealing with recurring left shoulder problems in a 2014 season that saw him go a career-worst 6-12 with a 4.77 ERA in 25 starts. "I started earlier, just to make sure everything was good," Minor said. "I started around Dec. 5 maybe. I usually wait till around Christmas time, but I wanted a couple of weeks to kind of ease into it and make sure everything was good."
Fantasy Tip: Minor's 2014 was a far cry from his spectacular 2013 season in which he went 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA in 32 starts. Expect Minor to bounce back this year, assuming his shoulder doesn't give him anymore problems. That makes him a nice sleeper pick in the late rounds to fill out your pitching staff.
