The Braves have announced that Mike Minor will make his 2014 debut on Friday against the San Francisco Giants. He will take the place of David Hale in the rotation. There has yet to be an announcement about any roster moves to make space for Minor, but they don’t need to do that before Friday.

Minor underwent a urinary tract procedure on December 31 and showed up to spring training with shoulder soreness. He made three minor league starts without incident so he seems ready to go.  Not that his absence has been felt too severely. The Braves lead all of baseball in ERA and his replacement — Hale — has a 2.31 ERA in four starts.

    Six man rotation anyone? Especially given how many young arms they have?

      Era’s Starters by team:

      Detroit: Atlanta:
      Justin Verlander: 2.18 Aaron Harang: 0.85
      Max Scherzer: 2.45 Julio Teheran: 1.47
      Anibal Sanchez(Injured): 3.13 Alex Wood: 1.54
      Rick Porcello: 3.96 David Hale: 2.31

      I read a comment like this and I just imagine the person who wrote the comment putting his or her hands behind their head, putting their feet up, and thinking “I got that damn Craig this time.”

        He’d better found a replacement soon if he makes the “list”.
