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.

Mike Minor: "We don't see him coming back anytime soon"

Braves have moved Minor to the 60-day DL in order to put Pedro Ciriaco on the 40-man roster for infield depth. Minor's rotator cuff flared up in Spring Training and it was still a problem in early April. There is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Impact

Those still holding Minor may want to proceed with other alternatives.

Mike Minor feeling shoulder discomfort again

He had been throwing off of flat ground just fine, but when he started to stretch it out from the mound he felt discomfort. He is to see Dr. Duralde in Atlanta to get a prognosis. Surgery is not out of the question.

Fantasy Impact

This is bad news for both Minor and the Braves. Before making a roster decision, wait to see how this will be handled.

Mike Minor close to throwing off mound

Minor (shoulder) has been playing long-toss for a while now and manager Fredi Gonzalez said today that he would throw from the mound soon.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves won't rush Minor and there was no word on how many bullpen sessions he will have before a rehab assignment. Look for a May return.
