Rangers Trade Minor to Athletics for Two Prospects

Rangers Trade Minor to Athletics for Two Prospects

Another starting pitcher is on the move. The Texas Rangers have traded Mike Minor to the Oakland A’s for two players to be named later.

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports:

 

What Oakland Gets

Minor hasn’t been as good as he was last season. In 2020 he is 0-5 with a 5.60 ERA. Although he did shut down a tough Los Angeles Dodgers lineup on Friday. Minor still offers some stability to a rotation that has underperformed this year. The A’s are in first place in the AL West but their starters haven’t been very good. They have a 4.84 ERA as opposed to the relievers who sport a 1.87 ERA. Minor will definitely give Bob Melvin some flexibility. Minor is a free agent at the end of the season.

The Rangers will get two players to be named later and hopefully find a diamond in the rough to help with their rebuild. They are also rumored to be shopping Lance Lynn and Joey Gallo.
