Description: Braves starter Mike Minor was removed after just one inning Saturday night, with shoulder discomfort.
Insight: He will probably be shelved for the season, as he missed the first month of the season with shoulder tendinitis. Minor likely finishes the year at 6-11 with a 4.77 ERA. He will look to rebound in 2015.
 
8/28/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor pitched seven innings, giving up one run, striking out five and walking four to beat the Mets on Thursday.
Insight: It was the third straight quality start for Minor, who pitched very poorly towards the end of July and beginning of August. In his last three starts, Minor is 2-0 with a 1.66 ERA.
 
8/23/2014 9:09:00 AM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor had a no-hitter through 7 2/3 innings Friday night against the Reds before allowing a hit to Billy Hamilton.
Insight: Hamilton's hit drove in Zack Cozart, who drew a one-out walk, to tie the game at one and Minor was removed after that so he took a no decision. The left-hander has had a miserable season, buthe seems to be moving in the right direction lately. Over his last three starts, he's allowed 13 hits and six runs while striking out 19 in 21 1/3 innings. He had a 7.33 ERA and a 1.89 WHIP in the 54 innings prior to that.
 
Cold8/12/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out seven in 6 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: It was Minor's first start since Aug. 1. The Braves skipped him after he gave up 85 hits (12 HR), 44 earned runs and 17 walks in 54 innings (7.33 ERA, 1.89 WHIP) his previous 10 starts. He's still not trustworthy at this point.
 
Cold8/5/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: The Braves will skip Mike Minor's next start after he allowed five runs on nine hits in five innings Friday at San Diego. SOURCE: David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: The Braves off days on Monday and Thursday this week allow them to skip Minor and still keep the other four starters on regular rest. In his last 10 starts, Minor has given up 85 hits (12 HR), 44 earned runs and 17 walks in 54 innings (7.33 ERA, 1.89 WHIP). He's allowed line drives at a 25.8 percent rate and a home run on 15.9 percent of his fly balls. At this point, fantasy owners should just move on.
 
Cold7/27/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor beat the Padres Sunday, but it wasn't exactly an encouraging start for the left-hander.
Insight: Minor allowed three runs on eight hits (2 HR) in 6 2/3 innings to the light-hitting Padres. The 26-year-old has given up 76 hits (10 HR) and 39 earned runs in his last 49 innings (7.16 ERA, 1.86 WHIP). Minor entered Sunday's start with a 26.5 percent line-drive rate and he now has a 15.2 percent HR/FB. It's safe to cut him in re-draft leagues.
 
Cold7/22/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor was roughed up again Tuesday against the Marlins. He gave up 10 hits and six runs in three innings.
Insight: Over his last eight starts, Minor has allowed 68 hits (8 HR), 14 walks and 36 earned runs in 42 1/3 innings (7.65 ERA, 1.94 WHIP). The 26-year-old was excellent last season, going 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP, but nothing's gone right in 2014. He began the season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury and has gone 3-6 with a 5.32 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.
 
Cold7/1/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor's struggles continued Tuesday as he didn't even get out of the fifth inning against the Mets (4 1/3 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 2 HR).
Insight: Minor has allowed 22 earned runs on 45 hits (7 HR) and nine walks in his last 26 1/3 innings (7.52 ERA, 2.05 WHIP).
 
6/11/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor gave up 11 hits and eight earned runs over four innings Tuesday at Colorado.
Insight: Atlanta gave Minor a 7-0 lead before he even stepped on the mound and a 10-6 lead going into the bottom of the fifth, but he couldn't stick around long enough to get a win. He went into Tuesday with a 3.07 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP, but he stands at 4.31 and 1.42 after Tuesday. There aren't many pitchers you want to use against the Rockies at Coors Field.
 
6/4/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Mike Minor struck out 10 batters and allowed only one run over seven innings Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners, but he walked away with a loss.
Insight: Atlanta couldn't muster a run against Hisashi Iwakuma or Seattle's bullpen. Minor has a 3.07 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and a 40/12 K/BB in 44 innings this season but is 2-4.
 
5/14/2014 9:30:00 AM
Description: Braves lefty Mike Minor kept the Giants off the scoreboard Tuesday for his first win of the season.
Insight: He only let up three hits in 6 2/3 innings. The win was Minor's first since Game 2 of the National League Division Series last October. Minor's next start isn't until Tuesday.
 
5/2/2014 4:25:00 PM
Description: Atlanta left-hander Mike Minor has officially been activated from the 15-day DL.

3/5/2014 4:34:00 PM
Description: Braves left-hander Mike Minor (shoulder) threw his first bullpen session of the spring Wednesday and will throw every other day for at least another week before progressing to live batting practice. SOURCE: mlb.com
Insight: Minor felt soreness in his shoulder when he reported to spring training, the result of a month of inactivity following a urinary tract procedure on Dec. 31. "My mechanics are obviously not all there," Minor said. "My leg was coming out, and I was leaning back more. That's not something I want to do. I want to be more compact and get back to what I was last year. But for this being the first time, I think it went pretty well." He hopes to be back by the second or third week of the season.

2/24/2014 7:45:00 PM
Description: Atlanta left-hander Mike Minor is behind in his throwing program because of shoulder soreness. SOURCE: David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: Minor (13-9, 3.21 ERA in 2013) still isn't throwing off a mound though the team is confident he'll be ready for the start of the season. This news shouldn't change Minor's draft position.
