      Braves' A.J. Minter: Opens season in middle-relief role

      A.J. Minter worked a scoreless seventh inning in his season debut in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Mets, working around a hit and striking out two.Minter entered the contest with the Atlanta Braves trailing 2-1 and was able to acquit himself well in the 20-pitch frame. The hard-throwing lefty saved 15 games for the Braves back in 2018, but control issues and injuries have resulted in him moving down the bullpen pecking order since then. Mark Melancon is beginning the season as the Braves' closer, and Will Smith (illness) will loom as the next man up once he's activated from the COVID-19 injured list.

      Braves' A.J. Minter: Optioned to Triple-A

      A.J. Minter was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.Minter struggled in the majors last season with a 7.06 ERA and 2.01 WHIP over 29.1 innings, which resulted in a trip to the minors. The 26-year-old will begin 2020 with Triple-A Gwinnett due to the Atlanta Braves' abundance of bullpen options, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Minter back in the major-league bullpen if injuries occur.

      Braves' A.J. Minter: Makes spring debut

      A.J. Minter (shoulder) retired two of the four hitters he faced in his spring debut Saturday in the Atlanta Braves' 1-1 tie with the Rays. He struck out one and allowed an unearned run on a base hit and a walk.Minter has been eased into workouts this spring after he concluded a rough 2019 on the 60-day injured list due to a bout of left shoulder inflammation. His appearance Saturday signals that he's healthy, but Minter may find himself on the outside looking in for a spot in the Braves' Opening Day bullpen. Per Mark Bowman of MLB.com, six pitchers are already assured spots in the Braves' projected eight-man bullpen, and Minter may be somewhat redundant as a second left-handed option behind Will Smith. A healthy Minter does have the arm talent to be a high-leverage weapon, however.

      Braves' A.J. Minter: Scheduled to debut Saturday

      A.J. Minter (shoulder) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Saturday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.Manager Brian Snitker provided an update on Minter on Friday saying that he was healthy and throwing well, and he's now on tap to debut Saturday. The 26-year-old was shut down at the end of last season with shoulder inflammation, and the Atlanta Braves have brought him along slowly this spring as a precautionary measure. Minter isn't a lock to make the Opening Day roster, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him in the majors at some point in 2020, even though he may not play a prominent role in the bullpen.

      Braves' A.J. Minter: Getting eased into spring

      Manager Brian Snitner said Thursday that A.J. Minter (shoulder) is healthy and throwing well, but the lefty isn't expected to make his Grapefruit League debut until next week, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.The Atlanta Braves are bringing Minter along slowly coming off a tough 2019 season that concluded in early September, when he was shut down with shoulder inflammation. While it's encouraging that Minter has seemingly moved past that injury, the 26-year-old doesn't look like he'll be entrusted with a key role out of the Atlanta bullpen right away, even if he cracks the Opening Day roster. Minter still has two minor-league options remaining, so he could be a candidate to open the season at Triple-A Gwinnett.

Minter was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday with left shoulder inflammation.Minter dealt with a shoulder injury at the start of the season and has struggled since, posting a 7.06 ERA and 2.01 WHIP across 29.1 innings while bouncing between the majors and minors.

This move ends the southpaw's season while freeing up a spot on the 40-man roster for Grant Dayton (toe), who was reinstated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

      Braves' A.J. Minter: Back in big leagues

      A.J. Minter was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.Minter has struggled to a 7.24 ERA and 1.98 WHIP with a 33:23 K:BB over 27.1 innings this season in the majors, but after rosters expanded Sunday, he'll get another shot with Atlanta. He began the year in the closer's role, but he's unlikely to see many chances over Mark Melancon over the final weeks of the regular season.
