A.J. Minter picks up a victory Friday

A.J. Minter pitched 1 1/3 innings, allowing no hits, walks, or runs Friday. He struck out three Mets and earned his fifth victory of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Minter has registered a 2.62 ERA, .224 OBA, and a 11.89 K/9 ratio across 44 2/3 innings in 48 games. The 28-year-old figures to be in a rotational set-up role moving forward and should return solid fantasy value.

A.J. Minter blows save on Monday

A.J. Minter allowed three earned runs on three hits in a single inning of work during Atlanta's loss to Philadelphia on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Minter, who is usually sharp, gave up a couple of singles before allowing a home run to Bryson Stott to blow his third save of the season. It was only his second home run allowed this season, so fantasy managers can just take this as a bad outing for the Braves reliever. Otherwise, he has been excellent this season with a 2.40 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with 18 holds and five saves over 41 1/3 innings.

A.J. Minter locks down save on Friday

A.J. Minter pitched 1/3 of an inning, allowing a walk while striking out one during Atlanta's win over Washington on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Minter locked down his fifth save getting just one out after Will Smith allowed a season-high three earned runs in the ninth inning. Kenley Jansen was getting a rest on Friday, and the Braves were able to call on their highly capable secondary option in Smith. He's been excellent all season collecting four wins with a 1.83 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 52 strikeouts over 43 appearances.

A.J. Minter secures save on Tuesday

A.J. Minter got his fourth save, striking out one over a single inning during Atlanta's win over the New York Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

This was Minter's last chance at a save before Kenley Jansen returns on Wednesday. He collected four saves, allowing a single run and striking out eight while pitching in a platoon with Will Smith, and looks to be the next man up if anything happens to Jansen again. He could still have value in deep leagues, as he may be called upon in the ninth inning occasionally for the Braves going forward. He has an excellent 1.66 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with 50 strikeouts over 41 appearances.

A.J. Minter locks down save on Saturday

A.J. Minter pitched the ninth inning, allowing two hits and striking out one while securing his third save during Atlanta's win over Washington on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Minter allowed a couple of batters to get on base but ultimately shut down the Nationals securing his second straight save. The Braves look to be truly platooning Minter and Will Smith, as the former has the last two saves after the latter secured two earlier in the month. Kenley Jansen is expected to return as soon as he's available on July 12, so both will be relegated back to late-inning work but could still be plenty valuable in deep leagues. Minter has a 4-2 record with an excellent 1.70 ERA and 0.89 WHIP over 40 appearances.
