The Braves have had crappy luck with their pitchers over the past couple of years. And Mike Minor has had bad luck himself when it comes to his health. So this, while sad, is not entirely shocking, frankly:

Minor was scratched from his scheduled start with shoulder soreness yesterday. This after he missed time with shoulder problems last season and struggled when he was healthy. Maybe because he was not completely healthy?
Minor is under contract for $5.6 million after winning his arbitration hearing against the Braves last month. The way this is heading, you have to wonder if insurance is gonna pick up a lot of that tab.
