News: Minor really struggled Tuesday, giving up six earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out just one in three innings against the Marlins. Impact: With his pitch count at 67 and the Braves in a hole early, Minor's night was done after recording just nine outs. He's been either far more hittable, or far less fortunate this season, coming into play with a .343 BABIP, well above his career .296 mark. Giving up hits was once again the theme Tuesday, but hopefully Minor's luck will turn in his next outing Sunday at home against the Padres.(RotoWire, )

News: Minor hit his second career home run, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Chicago Cubs 11-6 on Saturday. Impact: Minor (3-5, 4.86 ERA) also earned his first win in 10 starts since May 19 despite allowing six runs and 11 hits in six innings. He improved to 6-0 in six career starts against the Cubs.

News: Minor picked up the win in Saturday's 11-6 victory over the Cubs, despite allowing six runs on 11 hits and a walk over six innings. Impact: Minor struck out five batters and broke his streak of six consecutive starts allowing a home run, but his ERA rose to an ugly 4.86. His 79:24 K:BB hints at better days ahead, and his 14.9 percent HR/FB will likely drop as the season goes on. Concern is warranted, but it probably isn't a good idea to sell Minor when his value is at a low point. His first start after the break will come at home in Atlanta, against either the Phillies or Marlins.(RotoWire, )
