Mike Minor will get extra rest and will make his next start at home in the series opener against the Indians Tuesday.

Paul Maholm will step in for a start to allow Minor to rest for a few extra days. Minor has seen his ERA rise from 2.76 to 3.06 as he's allowed eight runs over his last two starts - covering 8.2 innings, so it's a nice time to get him a breather even though he's still about 20 innings short of the 179.1 he tossed last season.

Minor has been outstanding this season, having taken another step forward after a solid season last year. Minor is 12-5 with 3.06 ERA/3.14 FIP, has lowered his HR/FB% by about four percent from last year down to 7.9% and increased his K:BB rate from 2.59 last year to an impressive 4.03 this season.
