- Minor has a 3.62 FIP over his last 55.1 IP and is averaging over 6 IP per start in that time, but he’s had some untimely hits and poor defense lead to an inflated ERA. I imagine that the Royals would need to be blown away to take his arm out of the rotation in 2021, but I do think it’s still possible for him to pitch his way into trade conversations before the end of July.
- Cox has been sort of hit and miss to start 2021 after getting a late start himself, but he was better last time out. The velocity still isn’t what it once was but his curveball is as wicked as ever.
