Rangers' Mike Minor: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (0-2) took the loss Friday versus the Giants, allowing six runs on nine hits and two walks in 5.2 innings. He struck out three.

Minor cruised through four innings, but the Giants' bats came to life in the fifth and sixth, which put him in position to take the loss. The southpaw now has a 5.91 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through 10.2 innings after the poor outing. He'll try to get back on track in Oakland on Thursday.

Rangers' Mike Minor: No support in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (0-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and one walk while striking out six over five innings in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

Minor wasn't at his best and needed 98 pitches, but the left-hander kept the Rangers in position to win. Unfortunately, they left 12 men on base while going 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position. The Texas offense has been weak through the first two games at the new Globe Life Field, scoring three runs on 11 hits in 18 innings. Minor will look for better support his next time out, expected next Saturday on the road against the Giants.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Not pleased Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor worked four innings and allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five in an intrasquad game Thursday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

In response to questions about how he pitched, Minor's two-word response was "very poorly," which is a natural reaction after he walked three batters in one inning. That's unlike Minor, who typically averages under three walks per nine innings. He was not pleased with his breaking stuff and said he kept missing when trying to pitch up in the zone. He'll get two more chances during camp to work out Thursday's issues before he's ready to take the mound in a regular-season game July 25.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Pitches Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor threw a simulated game Saturday, T.R Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Minor had been slated to throw a sim game Friday, but that was delayed pending the results of his intake testing. Once he passed that hurdle, the left-hander tossed four innings and 77 pitches (47 strikes). Texas manager Chris Woodward reported Minor was pleased with the workout and is in a good place as he ramps up to the start of the regular season.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Held out of workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor was scheduled to pitch four innings in a workout Friday but instead was held out, with the Rangers still awaiting his COVID-19 test results, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Part of the uncertainty of this whole process is wondering whether this is just a normal delay, or if there's something wrong. The Rangers aren't permitted to elaborate about that without the consent of the player. The end result here is that this is a "... bit of a setback ..." for Minor, as per manager Chris Woodward, because of the compact training schedule.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Fires blanks Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor allowed two hits and struck out three over 4.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's spring game against the White Sox.

Minor extended his scoreless run to 7.2 innings over two spring starts. Tuesday's effort was more impressive than the first appearance because he faced the White Sox's projected regulars.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Appears in first spring game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor allowed two walks and struck out two over three scoreless innings in Thursday's spring game against the Diamondbacks.

It wasn't Arizona's best possible lineup, but the results are encouraging for Minor, who had been held back due to a battle with a sore hamstring. He needed just 38 pitches to get through his three innings, and the hamstring was not a bother. The left-hander will get at least more three spring starts in preparation for the regular season.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor threw a 40-pitch live batting practice session Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

The session went without issue, but Sullivan also reported that Minor has been receiving treatment for a sore hamstring. The issue doesn't appear to be a major concern at the moment. If it were, the Rangers wouldn't risk Minor aggravating it. "He looked really good," pitching coach Julio Rangel said. "His delivery was clean and in-sync, and his pitches were good. Everything was there."

Rangers' Mike Minor: Reaches 200 punchouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (14-10) allowed five earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out nine across 8.2 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Red Sox.

The Rangers stretched Minor out to 126 pitches to allow him to reach 200 punchouts for the season, which he accomplished by striking out the final batter he faced. Though he reached a milestone, Minor has allowed 18 earned runs across 18.2 frames to close the season. Even with those struggles, he'll end 2019 with a 3.59 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 208.1 innings.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Struggles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (13-10) allowed six runs on six hits and four walks over five innings Friday. He struck out three and took the loss as the Rangers fell 8-0 to the Athletics.

Minor can't be blamed fully for this loss, as the Rangers managed only two hits in the contest, and none after the third inning. The biggest damage off the southpaw came in the form of a three-run homer by Chad Pinder, one of two long balls Minor allowed. He now has a 3.52 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 181:66 K:BB in 199.2 innings this season. He's expected to take the hill Thursday versus the Red Sox for his final start of the season.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Pounded for seven runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (13-9) allowed seven runs on nine hits and three walks in five innings Saturday against the Athletics. He struck out five and took the loss.

All of the runs against Minor came on three homers. He had allowed only one homer over his previous four starts combined. Minor saw his ERA rise to 3.33 with a 1.21 WHIP and 188:62 K:BB in 194.2 innings this season. Minor's next start is expected to be a rematch with these Athletics on Saturday in a road start.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Goes eight strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (13-8) gave up two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three through eight innings to take the win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Minor cruised through eight innings to pick up his 13th win of the season. The left-hander has won his last two starts and has only pitched less than six innings once in his last seven appearances. Minor has a 3.08 ERA and a career-high 183 strikeouts through 29 starts this season. Minor is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Athletics at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Shuts down Yankees for 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (12-8) picked up the win Monday, allowing five hits and a walk over 7.1 scoreless innings while striking out five in a 7-0 victory over the Yankees.

The veteran southpaw fired 67 of 111 pitches for strikes while shutting down one of the most potent lineups in baseball. Minor had been tagged for 13 earned runs over his last three starts (19.1 innings), so this performance was a welcome sight. He'll take a 3.12 ERA and 180:58 K:BB through 181.2 innings into his next outing Saturday in Baltimore.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Start bumped to Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor won't start Sunday's game against the Mariners and is expected to take the mound Monday against the Yankees.

The Rangers will take advantage of Sunday's roster expansion and employ a bullpen game, providing the starting rotation with an extra day of rest. Minor loses out on a favorable matchup against the Mariners and will instead face the Bronx Bombers. The left-hander has been up and down since the All-Star break with a 4.71 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in nine starts.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Falls to 11-8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (11-8) took the loss against the Angels on Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on four hits over 6.2 innings, striking out four and walking three as the Rangers fell 5-2.

Minor missed a quality start by just one earned run, but still wound up tagged with his eighth loss of the season, as he was outdueled by counterpart Andrew Heaney. He's hit a bit of a lull lately compared to how he was pitching earlier in the season, as Minor has now given up at least four earned in six of his last nine starts. Still, the 31-year-old boasts excellent numbers overall, as he's got a 3.25 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 175:57 K:BB across 174.1 innings. He'll take the mound next in a favorable matchup against the Mariners at home Sunday.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Fans seven in rough outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Angels, coughing up seven runs (six earned) on 10 hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out seven.

The southpaw blanked Los Angeles through three innings before the wheels came off, and Minor appeared headed for his eighth loss of the year until Texas rallied for four runs in the final three innings. He'll take a 3.17 ERA and 171:54 K:BB through 167.2 innings into his next start Tuesday, a road rematch with the Angels.

August 17, 2019 12:04 AM
Rangers' Mike Minor: Saddled with seventh loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (11-7) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out five as the Rangers fell 4-3 to the Twins.

A pair of two-run homers by Max Kepler and Jonathan Schoop accounted for all the damage off Minor, but the southpaw still picked up his third straight quality start and 14th of the season. He'll carry a 2.94 ERA and 164:52 K:BB through 162 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Angels.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Fires gem in Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (11-6) allowed four hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings Sunday, striking out 11 and earning the win over the Brewers.

After posting an ugly 6.59 ERA in July, Minor has tossed 15 shutout innings with an outstanding 18:2 K:BB to start August. He allowed just one extra-base hit Sunday and forced Milwaukee batters to go 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. The 31-year-old lowered his ERA to 2.90 in 155 innings this season. Looking for his fourth straight win, Minor will host the Twins on Friday.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Blanks Cleveland for 10th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (10-6) picked up the win Monday, giving up seven hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings while striking out seven in a 1-0 victory over Cleveland.

The southpaw was simply dominant, tossing 72 of 112 pitches for strikes and not even allowing a baserunner past second base until his final inning of work. Minor will carry a 3.06 ERA and 148:50 K:BB through 147 innings into his next start Sunday in Milwaukee.

Rangers' Mike Minor: Gives up five runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor (9-6) gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five through five innings to take the win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Minor was hit early and often, but he was given plenty of run support to pick up the win. After posting a 1.70 ERA in June, the 31-year-old closes out the month of July with a 6.59 ERA in five starts. Minor will make his next start Tuesday against the Indians at Progressive Field.
