Bill Shanks of Atlanta Dugout was first to this …
Atlanta Dugout.com has learned Braves left-hander Mike Minor will undergo shoulder surgery and will likely miss the remainder of the 2015 season.
The specifics of the surgery aren’t known, but it’s obviously going to be a pretty significant procedure.
Minor was limited to 145 1/3 innings last season due to left shoulder troubles and posted a disappointing 4.77 ERA when healthy. He felt renewed shoulder discomfort a few days before his scheduled 2015 Grapefruit League debut and opened the regular season on the disabled list. Now he’ll finish it on the DL, too.
Minor was awarded a $5.6 million salary in late February following an arbitration hearing.
The 27-year-old will be a non-tender candidate this winter despite his past success.
