MLB Trade Rumors

Mike Minor, Texas Rangers

More from Call to the Pen

The final entry on this list is the left-handed starter for the Texas Rangers. Mike Minor has reclaimed his career in the last few seasons- reviving himself with a stint in the Kansas City Royals bullpen and then regaining a role in the rotation with Texas the last two seasons. He missed significant time with multiple injuries that he experienced while playing for the Dodgers.

Minor has been stellar in 2019, he currently stands at number 2 behind Charlie Morton for the AL lead with an ERA+ of 169. He would obviously be a great addition to any rotation, even enough to start postseason games for the team that acquires him.

He will cost more than the other members of this list, however, it will still be a bargain of trade considering that he will be under contract for 2019, as well. He can help a team pursue a championship for the next two seasons and it will not be as expensive as amove for Robbie Ray, Trevor Bauer, or Noah Syndergaard would probably be.

Minor blends a variety of pitches well. His arsenal consists of a 93 mph fastball, a change-up, slider, and buckling curveball. Overall, he not only generates a high degree of strikeouts, he routinely gets deep into the game.
