Despite struggling with Gwinnett this season, Minter will get his first-ever taste of the majors. Over 17 games (15.1 innings) of Triple-A ball, the southpaw posted a 17:10 K:BB and threw for a 4.70 ERA and 1.66 WHIP. In a corresponding move, Max Fried was optioned to Gwinnett.
Max Fried will be sent down in a corresponding move. The 23-year-old Minter didn't get off to a great start with Triple-A Gwinnett following his promotion in early July, but he's been much better lately, allowing just one run on four hits in his last nine appearances (nine innings). He has thrown more than one inning just once in 26 appearances in the minors this season.
Minter (groin) has four strikeouts in two innings since returning from the disabled list with High-A Florida.
Minter suffered an adductor groin strain way back in mid-April, but there appear to be no lingering effects at this point. The southpaw has only logged three innings on the season, but only one batter reached against him in that span and six batters whiffed against him. He should continue to get plenty of action out of the bullpen given his strong performance in a similar role last season (1.30 ERA in 34.2 innings in 2016).
Minter is set to miss at least one month as he recovers from an adductor groin strain, David O'Brien of AJC.com reports.
Minter was shut down with the injury after making just one minor-league appearance. Given his injury history, it wouldn't be surprising if the Braves were extra cautious with the 23-year-old. He should slot back into High-A upon his activation from the DL.
Minter will be placed on the disabled list with an adductor groin strain, David O'Brien of AJC.com reports.
Minter was shut down with a groin injury after making just one appearance for High-A Florida, striking out two in a scoreless inning. It's unclear how long the injury will keep Minter sidelined, but the Braves will likely take it slow with the 23-year-old lefty with an injury-filled past.
