AJ Minter as a Possible Relief Prospect

ATLANTA- Prospect pitcher A.J. Minter is likely to stand out at spring training for the Braves this year, especially given his recent success in the last season.

Even after working through his recovery from Tommy John surgery, a reconstructive surgery of the ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow, the Braves have stated they’re willing to keep an open mind.

He posted a 1.30 ERA, logged 34 2/3 innings during his first pro season, and his opponents to a .149 batting average. Minter was drafted in the second round of the 2015 MLB June Amateur Draft from Texas A&M University in Texas.

Although there will be more experienced relievers at camp this season, Minter may just prove himself to be worthwhile.
