Mike Minor pitched six innings of one run ball Sunday allowing six hits, three walks, and struck out six in the win over the Dodgers to move his record to 8-2 on the season.
Mike Minor has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his last seven starts and these were his first free passes allowed in two previous starts. Minors last loss came all the way back on April 28th. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
What my colleague, Michael Pichan, is saying here is that Minor is just dialed in at this point. He's been consistently showing fantastic control for almost 2 months and should be in your lineup whenever he takes the mound.ANALYST: Brad Costilo
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
