Mike Minor gets the win Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Braves pitcher Mike Minor picked up a win Sunday against the Padres.

Minor allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one. Home runs continued to be an issue for Minor. He gave up a solo shot to Yangervis Solarte in the third, and another solo shot to Rene Rivera in the sixth. In the seventh inning, Minor exited the game with one man on base. That run would come around to score after Minor left, meaning he was charged with a third run.

With the win, Minor improved to 4-6 on the year. His next start will come against the Padres. 


Mike Minor roughed up Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Braves pitcher Mike Minor got knocked around by the Marlins Tuesday.

Minor lasted just three innings, giving up six runs on 10 hits. Things could have actually been worse. Minor loaded the bases in the first inning before recording an out, but managed to escape after giving up just one run. After a quiet second inning, things went south. Minor walked the leadoff hitter to open the third, and allowed to straight hits to bring in another run. A ground out and single scored the other two runs during the inning.

Minor actually came out for the fourth, but was replaced after giving up three straight hits to open the inning. A run scored after Minor left the game, but was charged to him. 

The loss dropped Minor to 3-6 on the year. He’s set to take on the Padres in his next start.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Mets.


Mike Minor's 11 K's go to waste in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Braves pitcher Mike Minor put together one of his best starts of the season Friday against the Nationals, but the bullpen couldn't make it count as he settled for a no-decision.

Minor fell one strikeout short of his career-high, as he fanned 11 in seven innings of work. He walked two and allowed seven hits en route to two runs allowed, and was in line for a loss before Craig Kimbrel's rare blown save. The Braves would go on to win, 6-4, in extra innings.

Minor has not won in his last six starts, and remains just 2-4 after three straight no-decisions. He has a 4.20 ERA in 60 innings heading into his next start, set for Thursday against Houston. 


Mike Minor feels like he's 'going to bounce back'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor was hit hard again Sunday against the Angels, allowing 11 hits for the second straight start. However, outside of allowing two home runs, Minor limited the damage to three runs in five innings and was pleased with his outing.

"I looked back at all of the hits and I felt better," Minor said, per MLB.com. "I felt like I was throwing better than that. I just felt like they were putting good at-bats together on me. They were hitting bad pitches and I was walking guys. It was just one of those games where I felt better than the outcome."

Minor's ERA has jumped from 3.07 to 4.42 in his last two starts -- both no-decisions. However, the left-handed hurler is showing no signs of panic.

"The numbers are there, I'm not pitching well, but I feel like I am," Minor said. "I feel fine. I feel like I'm going to bounce back every time. Tonight, I felt great. I felt like I had pretty good stuff."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mike Minor clubbed in offensive explosion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Braves pitcher Mike Minor's winless streak reached four starts Tuesday, as he struggled through his worst start of the season against the Rockies.

Minor's streak of five quality starts came to an abrupt halt, as he was chased from the game without recording an out in the fifth inning. He was charged with eight runs on 11 hits, though he allowed just one home run on a night the ball left the yard four times total. He walked three batters and struck out three, while throwing 58 of 92 pitches for strikes.

Despite the subpar start, Minor ended up with a no-decision, as the Braves offense also showed up in a 13-10 win. Minor's ERA rose to 4.31 with the outing, while his record remains 2-4 heading into Sunday's start against the Angels. 


Mike Minor less lucky than good in loss to Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Braves left-hander Mike Minor performed quite well in front of a home crowd Wednesday against Seattle. The only problem was that counterpart Hisashi Iwakuma pitched a little bit better.

Minor surrendered just one run on five hits in seven innings with 10 strikeouts. But three of those his, including an RBI single by Cole Gillespie, came in the fourth inning. That was all that was needed for Minor to take his fourth loss in six decisions despite a fine ERA of 3.07.

He will hope for better luck Tuesday in Colorado.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Braves starter Mike Minor put together what might have been his finest start of the season Thursday against the Red Sox, but the bullpen let him down in a 4-3 loss.

Minor mad it through seven innings for the first time, and limited the Red Sox to just one run. Minor scattered seven hits and walked no batters, and left the game in line for a 3-1 win, before a late meltdown by the bullpen. He struck out three batters while throwing 80 of 113 pitches for strikes.

Minor remains 2-3 since returning from the disabled list, though he lowered his ERA to 3.41 in 37 innings with Thursday's outing. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Mariners.
