Braves' A.J. Minter: Looks good in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday during a 5-1 win over the Padres.

The southpaw has only been scored upon in three of 12 appearances this season, but the trio of meltdowns have led to one blown save, an 0-3 record and an 8.38 ERA. Minter remains in the late-inning mix for Atlanta, but he might need a couple more strong efforts in non-save situations before he gets entrusted with ninth-inning duty again.

Braves' A.J. Minter: Blows first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter (0-3) blew his first save of the season and took the loss Saturday as Atlanta fell 9-5 to Colorado, getting tagged for four runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning. He struck out two.

The southpaw has yet to go more than a few appearances this season without some kind of meltdown, and Minter's inconsistency has saddled him with a ghastly 9.72 ERA through 8.1 innings. His 11:4 K:BB highlights his upside if he can get straightened out, but for now he'll be tough to rely on as a dependable source of saves, especially as the pressure mounts on the Atlanta front office to bring in bullpen reinforcements.

Braves' A.J. Minter: Nails down third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his third save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Reds.

The southpaw has had a couple of rough appearances this season, leading to a 5.87 ERA through 7.2 innings, but Minter's 9:4 K:BB is solid and he's 3-for-3 in converting save chances. With Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) done for the year, Minter will have a long leash in the closer role for Atlanta.

Braves' A.J. Minter: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter saved his second game in a 8-7 win over the Indians on Saturday, throwing a scoreless inning in which he struck out all three batters he faced.

Minter has now converted both save chances he has been given, although he has also sustained two losses this year. The 25-year-old now has a firm grip on the closer job after Arodys Vizcaino underwent season-ending shoulder surgery Wednesday. Minter holds a 6.75 ERA and 1.80 WHIP thus far this season.

Braves' A.J. Minter: Unlikely to pitch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minter is likely unavailable for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks after being used out of the bullpen three of the past four days, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The Braves are also likely to stay away from Jesse Biddle due to workload concerns, leaving Chad Sobotka, Dan Winkler, Luke Jackson and Wes Parsons as the team's main high-leverage relievers for the series finale. Even if one of those four pitchers notches a save Thursday, it's still expected that the bulk of the Braves' ninth-inning opportunities will fall to Minter moving forward after co-closer Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) was recently moved to the injured list and ruled out for the entire regular season.
