He'll be shutdown for two weeks after receiving an injection today, and then evaluated after that. It's a big disappointment for both Minor and the Braves. But the news could have been worse. He will start the year on the DL. (Source: David O'Brien on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: I'd hold off on drafting him until he is able to prove himself on the mound. Sure, you could take a late round flier on him but that would bear the risk of a wasted pick.

This dark cloud will be hovering over Minor and the Braves for at least next several days until Andrews reveals the results of the exam. Minor had the same ailment last year with dismal results. (Source: Mark Bowman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Those hoping to pick Minor up as a backend pitcher should watch this developing situation closely. Minor had hoped to regain his 2013 form this year, but now that appears doubtful.

This is troubling news as Minor had been considered a prime bounce-back candidate after last year's poor showing. Minor was hoping to regain his 2013 form when he had a 3.21 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 181/46 K/BB ratio. Last year his ERA ballooned to 4.77 with a 1.44 WHIP. (Source: Atlanta Braves on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Those hoping that Minor could enhance the back of their rotation need to watch this closely. More news should be coming out after a medical evaluation.

Minor had a dismal campaign last season after having a great 2013 season. He had a 4.77 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP last year over 25 starts. He was shutdown in September due to shoulder discomfort. (Source: Mark Bowman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Minor has the talent to be among the best SP in baseball, as he was in that elite class in 2013. Fantasy drafters will have to monitor reports to see how he preforms and feels as year unfolds.
