Minor (5-3) earned the win Thursday against the Athletics after tossing seven innings of one-run ball, giving up three hits and a walk while fanning eight.

Minor has fanned at least seven in six of his last seven starts and ended just one strikeout away from tying his season-best mark in that category, but he also posted his second quality start over his last three appearances. Minor has lacked consistency at times, but he's been a strong option for strikeouts with a 9.5 K/9 across 74 innings in 2021. His next start is scheduled for next week at home against the Tigers.
