Royals | Mike Minor to miss several weeks

Sat, 20 Feb 2016 11:50:42 -0800

Kansas City Royals SP Mike Minor (elbow) will not be available for the first six weeks to two months of the regular season, according to general manager Dayton Moore.

Fantasy Tip: Minor, who has not pitched since the 2014 season, is recovering from shoulder surgery and should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round flier in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Royals | Mike Minor signs with KC

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 11:01:00 -0800

Free-agent SP Mike Minor (Braves) signed a two-year deal with the Kansas City Royals Friday, Feb. 19. The deal includes a mutual option for 2018. SP Jason Vargas (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list to make room for Minor on the 40-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: Minor missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury. He'll be an option in AL-only leagues if he's healthy.

Braves | Mike Minor non-tendered

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 19:06:09 -0800

The Atlanta Braves have decided not to tender a contract to SP Mike Minor, making him a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Minor missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his pitching shoulder. He is 38-36 with a 4.10 ERA in 111 career games (110 starts) and could merit consideration as a late-round flier in next season's fantasy drafts if he has a strong showing in spring training.

Braves | Mike Minor to return in 2016

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 00:43:25 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor will be back with the club for the 2016 season, according to team sources.

Fantasy Tip: Minor lost an entire season to shoulder surgery, so his contract value should not change. His fantasy value will likely be way down, but Minor could be a sleeper candidate in NL leagues based on how well his shoulder looks in spring camp.

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:30:25 -0700

Braves | Mike Minor surgery details

Wed, 13 May 2015 08:50:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will have exploratory surgery on his pitching shoulder this week, according to a person familiar with the situation. Surgery for Minor could hurt his chances of being offered a contract for next season, although a recent MRI exam showed no structural damage in his arm. If damage is found during the procedure, Minor's season would likely be over. It might be hard for him to come back and pitch in 2015 even if no damage is found, as he's missed a lot of time and would have to re-strengthen his shoulder. Minor has continued to have pain and discomfort in his shoulder when he's attempted to ramp up his throwing program.

Fantasy Tip: With Minor likely done for the year, it gives Mike Foltynewicz ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) some more run in the starting rotation. He's an unpolished product, though, despite high-strikeout upside, but he can be a sneaky matchup play at FantasyScore.

Braves | Mike Minor will undergo surgery

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:40:58 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will undergo surgery this week, according to Bill Shanks of FOX Sports. SP Mike Foltynewicz should remain in the starting rotation for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Foltynewicz ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) picked up the win in each of his first two major league starts, but did so with an ERA of 5.23. Foltynewicz does have nine strikeouts through 10 and one-third innings pitched, showing his upside. Foltynewicz is an option in NL-only leagues, and he should be owned in dynasty leagues.

Braves | Mike Minor not close to returning

Sun, 03 May 2015 11:12:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) was recently moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list, in order to clear space on the 40-man roster for INF Pedro Ciriaco. General manager John Hart said Minor doesn't appear to be close to returning to action anytime soon. "There has not been any measurable improvement that you want to see," Hart said. "We've taken the MRIs. We are trying to stay as patient as we can and Mike is doing everything he can. At this point, things haven't progressed."

Fantasy Tip: According to Hart, the Braves should know more about Minor's status in the next seven to 10 days. There is no timetable for him to resume throwing and it would be surprising to see him pitching in meaningful games before the All-Star break. He remains a stash candidate for owners in deep fantasy leagues who can afford to use the roster space on him.

Braves | Mike Minor still long tossing

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:39:02 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) is still doing long-toss throwing sessions and hasn't thrown off a mound yet, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez. Gonzlaez noted Minor is close to throwing from the mound, though.

Fantasy Tip: Minor is still approximately two months away, as he has had to essentially restart his spring training program all over. After battling shoulder injuries throughout the 2014 season, there are certainly concerns about his ability to rebound this year. Still, he is worth stashing in the majority of formats.

Braves | Mike Minor throws from 60 feet

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:39:21 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) threw two sets of 15 throws from 60 feet Tuesday, March 24. It was the first time he threw since being shut down Thursday, March 5.

Fantasy Tip: Minor is basically starting spring training all over again, and he projects to return in late-May or early-June. With his 2014 season mired by shoulder issues, his fantasy stock is becoming a risky undertaking, and you shouldn't be afraid to allow him to take up space on an opponent's roster. Still, he returned near-elite numbers in 2013, so there could be upside for a patient owner.
