Braves | Mike Minor working on sinker
Mon, 25 Mar 2013 15:55:30 -0700
Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor gave up five runs and three homers in five innings Monday, March 25, and his sinker is still a work in progress right now. Minor has allowed 16 hits and five walks in nine innings in his last two starts. His ERA now stands at 6.26 in six starts. "I need to work on it more in the bullpen and pick my spots to throw it," he said. "I wanted to see it against hitters. It was a lot better today, but I had a couple that were straight — and they went straight out of the ball park. But overall I felt a lot better. Started throwing in, started jamming a lot of guys and throwing some curveballs and sliders."
