Mike Minor has agreed to a one-year deal with the Braves worth $3.85 million.
He earned the large raise after putting together a 3.21 ERA and 1.09 WHIP to go along with 181 strikeouts over 204 2/3 frames last season. The lefty will have to be a key piece again in 2014 if the Braves want to repeat as NL East champs.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Aaron Harang won't pitch Wednesday as he's working on some mechanical issues.
It should be interesting to see the results of these tweaks. Harang's season last year was nothing short of surprising as he posted a career-best 3,57 ERA. His lost a little off his K/BB ratio, but overall, the season was a big success for him. Can he maintain it? It's going to be tough in a park like Philly's and a ground ball rate below 40-percent. He's not going to be someone to draft, but keep an eye on his early and maybe think about adding him early if he has a nice run to open the season. Analysis: Howard Bender
