Mike Minor pitched seven innings of one run ball allowing three walks and striking out seven Reds on the way to his fourth win of the season in the Braves 7-2 victory Wednesday.
The only damage allowed by Mike Minor was a solo-home run to the Reds Zack Cozart. Minor has been plagued by the long-ball of late having allowed five home runs in his last three starts, but overall his peripherals suggest he is taking a minor step forward from the respectable first full-season he put together last year and is on his way to fulfilling his pre-draft sleeper hype.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Carlos Rodon will take the injured Chris Sale's Cactus League start on Friday.
Rodon, the team's top prospect and 14th-overall prospect in baseball, will start in place of Chris Sale who fractured his right foot in an accident at his home. Rodon is a sleeper to take Sale's spot in the rotation while he deals with this issue, but those in dynasty leagues need to be aware of Rodon's immense fantasy potential. He is going to be a force in fantasy in the near future, but it most likely won't be in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
