Braves' Minor, 2 others now free agents

Braves pitcher Mike Minor became a non-tendered free agent Wednesday after the team declined to offer the left-hander a contract. The move was not unexpected after Minor missed the 2015 season recovering from shoulder surgery.

Minor can continue negotiating a free-agent contract with the Braves in the coming weeks, but can also entertain offers from other teams.
