Minor underwent successful shoulder surgery Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the 2015 season.

This is just a bookkeeping note, as we knew Minor was scheduled for surgery and it was anticipated that he would be done for the season. He will be an extremely cheap flier in drafts next season and is expected to be ready for 2016 spring training.

Minor will undergo shoulder surgery this week, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Renewed shoulder discomfort accompanied Minor's return to elevated ground last month, resulting in his transfer to the 60-day DL. As it turns out, he will need the shoulder operated on, and though nothing's definite, the lefty may very well miss the entire 2015 season as a result. Minor first began experiencing shoulder issues during 2014 spring training.

Minor (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day DL and the Braves do not expect him back anytime soon, SB Nation's Demetrius Bell reports.

Minor's season could be in jeopardy, as general manager John Hart did not sugarcoat the situation. It's starting to seem unlikely that we ever see the 2013 version of Minor again even if he is able to make it back as a starter.

Minor experienced more discomfort in his left shoulder when he threw off the mound during rehab, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Given the nagging nature of shoulder injuries, this could very well be a setback for Minor's return time. If he's behind schedule, his return pushes into May and leaves the Braves with a shallow rotation. When he does come back, he'll be a risky pick-up as he might not be 100 percent and could face re-injury.

Minor (shoulder) is still doing long-toss throwing sessions and has not thrown off a mound yet, the Atlanta Journal Constitution's David O'Brien reports.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Minor is getting close to taking the mound, but Minor has not yet cleared that hurdle. It seems unlikely that he will be able to rejoin the Braves' rotation until at least May, as Minor will probably need a couple rehab outings before making his 2015 debut in the big leagues.

Minor (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to March 27, MLB.com reports.

Minor has started throwing in the past week and will need a lengthy rehab assignment once he's up to full speed. A return sometime in May appears to be the current target.
