|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) Braves starter Mike Minor returned to Atlanta to be examined after experiencing discomfort in his left shoulder after throwing off a mound earlier in the week, per MLB.com.
Minor had gone through flat-footed throwing exercises without any pain, but when throwing off a mound, continued to have a re-occurance of the injury that has sidelined him since March.

2015 Draft Prep: 10-team, NL-only Roto mock
While the pitching pool is deep in the National League, the hitting field has the opposite problem. Our Scott White takes a look at our latest 10-team, NL-only Roto mock draft.
|2014 summary: After a breakthrough 2013 in which he went 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings, Mike Minor appeared to fall back into some bad habits last year. Of course, it's not that simple. Offseason surgery to remove scar tissue from his urethra led to him being delayed for the start of spring training, which led to shoulder tendinitis, which led to him missing a month and not being quite right for the next three. For a six-start stretch in August and September, he looked more like himself, posting a 2.59 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and 6.9 strikeouts per nine innings.|
Playing time status: Minor had renewed shoulder soreness in the two starts that followed, so the Braves, who were clearly out of the postseason picture at that point, opted to shut him down. All seemed well when he reported for spring training this year, but then he was scratched prior to his first start with what the Braves called tightness in the same shoulder. It sounds like just a minor issue that will sideline him for only the first couple weeks of the season, but given his history of shoulder troubles, you should be careful not to invest too much in Minor.
2015 outlook: At this time last year, Minor was considered a top-25 starting pitcher in Fantasy, so you wouldn't want to write them off because of one injury-plagued season. But now that he could be in for another one, a late-round pick seems most appropriate.
