Minor went 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA last season. He missed the start of the season after developing shoulder tendinitis in spring training. This came after urinary tract surgery prior to spring training. Minor is hoping to finish the season strong in his final eight or nine starts.
“It’s more about having the confidence,” Minor said. “I’ve talked to a lot of guys – teammates, coaches, family members – but it just comes down to me executing pitches. I think a lot of it has just been in my head, whether I should do this or that, the way I have been attacking hitters or throwing inside or what I should be doing. I think I should do my own thing. That’s what I did last year.”
