Braves' Mike Minor (shoulder) feels good after throwing Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said that pitcher Mike Minor was feeling good after throwing from 60 feet Tuesday, the Braves Radio Network reports.

It was the first time Minor has throw since being shut down with shoulder tightness earlier in March. He completed two sets of 15 throws in the session. He's scheduled to open the season on the disabled list and may be able to rejoin the rotation by early May.

Braves SP Mike Minor on track for early May return?
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) to begin throwing this week
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves starting pitcher Mike Minor (shoulder) is scheduled to begin his throwing program this week, MLB.com reports.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Monday that Minor will begin light throwing from 60 feet soon, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The pitcher was shut down earlier in March due to shoulder inflammation. He'll open the season on the disabled list but is still hoping to return by late April.

Report: Braves' Mike Minor to open season on disabled list
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves pitcher Mike Minor will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list despite avoiding structural damage in his pitching shoulder, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Minor had an MRI and an injection from Dr. James Andrews Monday and will rest for two weeks before being re-evaluated to see if he can resume throwing. Andrews told Minor that too much weighlifting and certain other excersies likely contributed to tightness in his upper body.

"I went to him for another opinion," Minor said. "He kind of gave me the same kind of idea that our doctor was saying, besides the fact that, hey, let’s just shut down the upper-body lifting because you’re getting tight every time you’re lifting and that could be contributing to the pinch in the top. So if I just stretch and keep my shoulder strong, but not doing any push-ups or chest exercises, even the back exercises, kind of keeping them at bay to be a bit free-and-easier, then maybe it won’t pinch as much up there. There’s nothing wrong with the MRIs and stuff, so there’s no surgical procedures or anything (required). It’s just frustrating, more or less."

With Minor to miss the beginning of the season, the Braves will be looking to fill two holes in the rotation this spring.
