Royals' Mike Minor: Drawing interest on trade market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Teams are growing increasingly interested in acquiring Minor from the Royals before the Aug. 1 trade deadline, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

For playoff contenders, building a strong bullpen has become more of a priority in recent years than ever before. Minor, a former starter who's developed into a reliable reliever, has become one of the best left-handed options on the market. From a fantasy perspective, Minor's role on another team would be the same as his current job, so it's not like a trade increases the veteran's value under any format.

Royals' Mike Minor: Picks up first win since 2014
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor pitched 1.1 hitless innings while issuing a walk and striking out two Sunday against Minnesota en route to his first win since 2014.

Shoulder surgery kept the left-hander out of the majors for two years and resulted in a move to the bullpen. Minor, who signed a two-year, $7.3 million deal with the Royals in Feb. 2016, got his first MLB victory since pitching for Atlanta on Aug. 28, 2014. Over 18 relief appearances (23.2 innings) this year, Minor owns a stellar 1.90 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with a 24:6 K:BB.

Royals' Mike Minor: Grabs third hold Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor recorded an out and allowed a hit Sunday against the Orioles en route to his third hold of the year.

The left-handed specialist has appeared in 15 games this season while logging a total of 20.1 innings. Minor's pitched admirably, managing a 2.21 ERA and 0.89 WHIP, both of which are well below his career marks of 4.04 and 1.25, respectively. The veteran spent his entire career as a starter before the current campaign, but he's found a nice rhythm as a middle-relief man and should see ample opportunities to rack up holds in 2017.

Royals' Mike Minor: Making spot start is not an option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor will not be considered to make a spot start in the foreseeable future, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

After being selected in the first round of the 2009 draft by Atlanta, Minor spent his first five MLB seasons as a starter. However, an injury derailed him and led to exploratory surgery in 2015. He's now pitching in his first big-league campaign in more than two full seasons. For now, the club has no plans to remove the reins as they plan to carefully manage Minor's pitch count in 2017. "I want to get a full season, or at least half a season under his belt to get his arm and shoulder built up," manager Ned Yost said. "He hadn't pitched in the big leagues in a while. Last year [in the minors], he was really, really effective to about the 60-pitch mark, which doesn't work as a starter. So if you continue to build his shoulder up like we're doing, down the road, could he be a starter? Quite possibly." Minor lowered owns a 2.50 ERA with a 9.0 K/9 through 18 innings. He could potentially offer three innings as a starting pitcher, but Yost said he preferred a pitcher with the ability to go deeper.

Royals' Mike Minor: Spins spotless appearance in Thursday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor pitched 1.2 scoreless innings with a walk and three strikeouts during Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Moving to the bullpen has provided an uptick in velocity for Minor (93.3 mph), and after battling injuries for three seasons, it's likely he'll remain a reliever. The former first-round pick probably still needs some fine-tuning out of the 'pen, but Minor has the potential to grab a meaningful role in the future.
