Minor threw 6.1 shutout innings on Saturday against the Mets improve his record to 11-10 for the year and finished the regular season on a strong note by having an 0.87 ERA in September. Minor's numbers for the year are somewhat skewed by his horrendous month in May when he allowed 10 home runs in 25 innings of work. His 11.7 percent HR/FB ratio is also inflated because of that terrible month, and I believe that Minor will be a strong back end starter in standard leagues in 2013. His strikeout rate is above average (7.28 K/9), and I would expect that number to improve to offset the likely BABIP regression. I was also encouraged to see his best month in terms of velocity to come in September, which included his highest average fastball velocity of the year on 9/22 (91.3 mph). Minor could be even stronger next year.
