You may not feel great about Minor repeating his first half and you shouldn't, but even with extreme regression, he would still be well worth owning. Don't be surprised when he finishes with 200 Ks and an ERA below 3.5.

This looks like a different Minor than the man who posted a 4.18 ERA and 20.6 K% last season. He now sports a 2.40 ERA and 110 strikeouts in 112.2 innings. Bolstered velocity and an elite spin rate have led to better success with his four-seam fastball, and all three of his other offerings (slider, changeup, and curveball) have a double-digit swinging-strike rate. Even if a 4.32 SIERA suggests regression is coming once he has to pitch in Arlington all summer, the southpaw has shown more than enough to confidently deploy in all leagues.
