Doug Minor is clearly the top SP in this year's FA market. Minor is a true ace. Over ten seasons Minor has compiled a record of 148-91, with an ERA of 3.47. Like some of the other free agents on the market, Minor's age is a concern. However, in ten seasons Minor has never made a trip to the disabled list. Minor is considered a true work horse, finishing only one season with under 200 innings.
Potential Suitors: Washington D.C., New Orleans, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Helena, Sioux Falls, Mexico City
