News: Minor tossed seven strong innings Sunday night, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks while piling up seven strikeouts in a victory over the A's. Impact: The Braves' decision to skip Minor's turn in the rotation earlier this month has seemed to cure his struggles on the mound, at least in the short term. The 26-year-old southpaw has put together back-to-back quality efforts, as he has allowed five earned runs while posting a 1.10 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB ratio across his last 13.2 innings. Minor will be back on the mound Friday in Cincinnati.(RotoWire, )

News: Minor fell to 4-8 on Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits in 6.2 innings against the Dodgers. He also fanned seven and issued just one free pass. Impact: Tough luck for the struggling southpaw, who actually tossed the ball well in this one, particularly in his ability to keep the ball in the yard after allowing a combined 12 homers in his previous 10 starts. By now, it's no secret to owners that Minor's numbers this season are far from where they expected them to be, as his 5.33 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 18 starts are well above his career marks of 4.15 and 1.28. Furthermore, he hasn't been able to regain the form that earned him a 13-9 record with a 3.21 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 2013, making him a noteworthy fantasy bust in the starting pitching department this season. He's slated to toe the rubber again Sunday in a tough match against the Athletics.(RotoWire, )

News: Minor is lined up to make two starts this week, Tuesday at home against the Dodgers and Sunday at home against the A's. Impact: The Braves opted to skip the struggling Minor's last start after he was lit up to the tune of five runs on nine hits over five innings against the Padres, but he will return to the rotation Tuesday as expected. It's always possible, however, that the team could turn elsewhere for Sunday's start should Minor struggle against Los Angeles, so proceed with caution.(RotoWire, )
