SURPRISE, AZ (105.3 The Fan) - New Rangers Manager Chris Woodward has plenty of time to decide who will take the mound on Opening Day against the Chicago Cubs, but that didn't stop him from hinting at Mike Minor being the guy.
When asked about the possibility of starting Opening Day, Minor embraced the potential role.
"It's always been a goal," Minor said. "I think everyone's like that. If people look at me like that, I'm going to try to uphold that. Everyone wants the opening nod. It would be an accomplishment for me."
Minor was the Rangers strongest starter last season, going 12-8 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.
