Mike Minor signs with Rangers

Mike Minor has signed on with the Texas Rangers, according to Ken Rosenthal. Terms were not immediately known.

Fantasy Impact

Rumors were that the Rangers were looking for a lefty starter, so it's likely that Minor will fill that role, rather than slot in as a reliever as he was this past year. For his career, Minor has a 3.76 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings, which could make him a deep-league or AL-only option as a starter.

Mike Minor grabs another save Wednesday

Mike Minor nabbed his fourth save on Wednesday against the Tigers, getting the last two outs after Brandon Maurer melted down in the ninth. The Royals won 7-4.

Fantasy Impact

Minor has been great for the Royals all season, and fantasy owners are wishing manager Ned Yost recognized that Minor was the club's best reliever sooner. There is high speculation around what the Royals plan to do for their bullpen in 2018, which Minor figures to right in the middle of. Minor has a 2.62 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 85 Ks in 75 2/3 innings.

Mike Minor picks up save Thursday

Mike Minor secured the Royals victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday, pitching a clean 1-2-3 inning while getting a strikeout. This is Minor's second save over the past couple weeks.

Fantasy Impact

With both Kelvin Herrera and Scott Alexander floundering recently, the closer's job looks like it is Mike Minor's for the taking. If he is still available in your league, go pick him up. He has a 2.68 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 84 Ks in 74 innings.

Mike Minor underwent surgery for torn labrum

Minor will have time to begin a throwing program before a decision is made on whether or not the team will sign him for 2016. Most expect a non-tender but Minor is a fighter and has a chance to recover nicely.

Fantasy Impact

He has a steep mountain to climb but he has the tenacity to do it so keep him on your long-term radars. Those in keeper leagues will have a decision to make but I don't imagine many will allot space for him.

Mike Minor to have shoulder surgery, will miss rest of season

Mike Minor will have season-ending surgery soon, details of which are still emerging. This perhaps is the end of his Braves tenure, as the team will most likely non-tender him after signing him through arbitration this year for $5.6M.

Fantasy Impact

Whatever was left of Minor's fantasy value just plummeted, even for those in keeper leagues. He'll have a long road back in order to prove he can be relied upon again.
