Royals' Mike Minor: Earns 10th hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor struck out one in a clean sixth inning Thursday against Detroit to pick up his 10th hold of the season.

The sixth-year southpaw entered with two men on base as the Tigers were mounting a rally against starter Danny Duffy. Minor erased the trouble without a problem, lowering his career-best ERA and WHIP to 2.31 and 0.99, respectively. He's been a pleasant surprise in his first season as a reliever -- and first MLB campaign since 2014 with Atlanta -- but his fantasy value is extremely limited.

Royals' Mike Minor: Flourishing in bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor has a 1.93 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 37 strikeouts over 37.1 innings this season.

The left-hander has a 3-1 record and has recorded eight holds for the Royals. Minor's first season out of the bullpen has been a resounding success thus far, as he is holding opponents to a .195/.262/.278 slash line and has stifled left-handed hitters even more so. The former starter has a respectable 8.9 K/9 and has given up only one home run this season.

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.
