RP - ATL
The Braves recalled A.J. Minter to Atlanta after they DFA'd Shane Greene.
Minter hasn't had his best season with a 4.86 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 42 games played. On the bright side he did throw seven shutout innings in Triple-A. It is unlikely that he'll he save opportunities.
A.J. Minter pitched the eighth inning against the Nationals Wednesday and served up a solo homer to Yan Gomes. It was enough to seal the Braves' fate, and he is now 1-2 on the year.
Minter is one of several relievers for the Braves that do not belong on any MLB roster, so it's best to leave him on the wire.
A.J. Minter entered the game in the eighth inning with a 3-2 lead and allowed three hits, three runs (all earned), and was removed before recording any outs. Ouch. That's his third blown save this season and his first loss.
It was a tough loss, as Bryse Wilson started the game and pitched a solid six innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. Minter is just not consistent enough to trust on most fantasy rosters.
A.J. Minter entered the game against the Marlins on Thursday in the ninth and allowed two hits, two runs (both earned), and one walk while recording one strikeout. He earned a blown save with that effort, his second blown save of the year, but also notched the relief win when the Braves won the game in the bottom half of the inning.
Minter has not been very impressive thus far and that's too bad because the ninth-inning job is wide open for the Braves.
A.J. Minter pitched the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Nats, allowing three hits, one run (earned), and one walk on his way to a blown save, his first of the young season.
Minter was just not effective today, but he is a better pitcher than what we saw today. He'll bounce back.
