      Braves pitcher Mike Minor begins throwing program

      Braves pitcher Mike Minor (shoulder) began a throwing program recently, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Minor went under the knife for shoulder surgery in the middle of May, but was able to begin throwing in September and appears to be progressing well. He'll continue to throw over the offseason, and while the club is hopeful that the 27-year-old will be able to return early next year, it's unclear at this point if he'll be available to begin the season.

      Braves P Mike Minor has shoulder surgery, will miss rest of season

      Braves left-handed pitcher Mike Minor underwent shoulder surgery on Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the 2015 season, the club announced. Previously, the Braves had placed Minor on the 60-day disabled list in June. Once Minor needed to opt for surgery, it became likely that he would be forced to sit out the rest of the year. Minor first began experiencing shoulder discomfort a year ago, which led to a 6-12 season with a 4.77 ERA. The Braves described Minor's shoulder procedure as "successful."

      Report: Braves' Mike Minor to have surgery, may be done for 2015

      Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor will undergo a surgical procedure to his left shoulder later this week, almost certainly preventing the left hander from returning in June, as had been targeted, sources have told MLB.com. Minor struggled with discomfort in his left shoulder last season, posting a disappointing 6-12 record in 25 starts with a 4.77 ERA. According to Bill Shanks of FOX Sports 1670 and Scout.com, the surgery will likely prevent Minor, who began the season on the disabled list, from pitching in 2015. Minor, 27, was shifted to the 60-day DL on May 2.

      Braves SP Mike Minor on track for early May return?

      If all goes well in his recovery from shoulder tightness, Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor could be back in the major-league rotation by early May. Although, Minor is not set to put any timetable on his return. "I think it's really going to be about seeing how I feel every day," Minor said. "If I feel strong, and I think I can progress, I think they're going to let me. I've already done all that work. I know taking the time off is a big deal, too. So, it's just a matter of how much strength did I keep and how quickly I can get back into throwing shape." After being evaluated by Dr. James Andrews earlier in March, Minor was prescribed multiple stretching exercises to help with the range of motion in his shoulder. Minor has been shut down since experiencing tightness in his left shoulder while throwing live batting practice on March 3.
