Bob Nightengale is reporting that the Mets are one of the teams interested in Texas Rangers LHP Mike Minor. Minor is signed through 2020 while making a modest $9.5M per year and has experience pitching in the N.L. East.
Minor’s name floated around during the off-season due to the stall in the Free Agent market and is once again creating a buzz after pitching a complete game shutout vs the Anaheim Angels this week.
The former Atlanta Braves first rounder has pitched in 4 games this season, going 27.2 innings while striking out 22 (7.2 K/9) with an impressive 2.60 ERA and 0.94 WHIP. His record is 2-1 and is slated to take on the Oakland Athletics, this upcoming Monday.
