Mike Minor to make season debut on Friday night

The Braves lefty will start this Friday night against the Giants.

According to the Braves twitter account, Mike Minor will make his season debut this Friday night against the San Francisco Giants.

Some are worried about Minor's rehab starts being less than ideal, but don't be. He was just working on getting back to speed and being able to throw all of his pitches. Results are of tertiary importance, at best.

Of course, with Minor's return, one of Atlanta's stellar starting five will be bumped. And it looks like David Hale is that guy.

Whether Hale will remain in the bullpen long term or go back to AAA Gwinnett to stay stretched out is unknown at the moment. We'll keep you updated when we find out more. And remember, Hale will have plenty of chances to stick in Atlanta's future rotation going forward. It sucks for him, but it is in no way an indictment of his pitching.
