Texas was not the place we planned to go for starting pitching in fantasy leagues this season — Joey Gallo yes, Shelby Miller no — but there is one starter it looks like we can trust in Arlington, and he goes by the name of Mike Minor.

Fresh off a career-high 13 strikeouts on Saturday night, Minor a month into the season is carrying a 2.88 ERA and 0.91 WHIP, with 39 strikeouts and 12 walks in 40 2/3 innings. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Baseball Podcast, George Bissell joins me to discuss Minor’s renaissance, and forecast the outlook for dynamic young infielders ranging from Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to Carter Kieboom to Michael Chavis to Hunter Dozier.
