Minter has allowed multiple hits in five of his last eight outings. He surrendered at least one run in three consecutive appearances from June 10 to June 16 but hadn’t allowed a run in his last four outings entering Tuesday.
It’s been a frustrating season for Minter, who rebounded from a tough 2019 with a dominant 2020, only to again endure maddening inconsistencies in 2021.
“I think always with him, it’s about command and locating his pitches, getting them where he wants them,” manager Brian Snitker said. “Getting that cutter where he wants it to go. He threw some change-ups the other day. Just executing pitches, pretty much. He’s throwing good, he’s just not executing pitches like you’d wish he would.”
