One day after the left-hander tossed a three-hit, complete-game shutout against the Los Angeles Angels, Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports reported the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies are both showing strong interest in the 31-year-old.
Minor has pitched well in his first four starts of the season, compiling a 2.60 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, and 22 strikeouts during 27 2/3 innings.

This isn't the first time Philadelphia has shown interest in Minor. The team's front office reportedly talked about a trade involving the Rangers southpaw in December, but nothing came to fruition.

Since signing a three-year deal worth $28 million with the Rangers before the 2018 season, Minor has posted a 14-9 record with a 3.95 ERA in 184 2/3 innings.
He's still owed $9.5 million this year and in 2020, according to Nightengale.
