"I wanted that to be an option for teams, and I felt like Texas was the only team that kind of stepped up and gave me that option," Minor said. "As everybody knows, I've always been a starter. Last year was my first year in the pen, and I was comfortable doing it. Deep down in my well, I still feel like there's something there and I feel like I can help this team being a starter."
"It's a tough road ahead of us but I think we can do it," reliever Mike Minor said.
