MLB Reds’ Mike Minor activated from IL, to pitch vs. Nationals


Cincinnati Reds left-hander Mike Minor was activated from the 10-day injured list to make his season debut against the visiting Washington Nationals on Friday.

Minor, who has been sidelined by a sore pitching shoulder, was acquired from the Kansas City Royals in March for fellow southpaw Amir Garrett.

Minor, 34, went 1-2 with a 3.38 ERA in four rehab starts with Triple-A Louisville last month.

Minor posted an 8-12 record with a 5.50 ERA in 28 starts last season for the Royals. Since winning a career-high 14 games and making the American League All-Star team in 2019 for the Texas Rangers, Minor is 10-24 over the past two seasons.

Overall, Minor is 79-78 with a 4.11 ERA in 276 appearances (209 starts) over 10 seasons with the Atlanta Braves, Rangers, Oakland Athletics and Royals.

Also on Friday, the Reds optioned outfielder TJ Friedl to Triple-A Louisville.

Friedl, 26, batted .179 with four RBIs in 20 games this season with the Reds.
