Mike Minor makes his first spring start as a member of the Texas Rangers. Much like Matt Bush, Minor is trying to convert from a successful reliever to a starter. After a couple of seasons in the bullpen for Kansas City, Minor signed with Texas with the promise to join the rotation.
Unlike Bush, Minor was once a successful starter in the big leagues before injuries and inconsistency necessitated a move to the ‘pen.
Minor will be countered by LHP Alex Wood of the National League Champion Dodgers at Surprise Stadium in Surprise, Arizona.
