The trade market will heat up for Mike Minor before you know it. Should the Texas Rangers trade him this year or reassess next year?

Let’s play a game of Trade, Keep, or Extend! It’s probably not a pressing matter for the Texas Rangers just yet, but pretty soon they’re going to have to decide how to handle starting pitcher, and now established ace, Mike Minor.

With the way Minor has been pitching, teams will without a doubt be knocking on the Rangers’ door hoping to accomplish a trade. Though, at 31 years of age, he’s likely a guy Texas wouldn’t mind having around for a few more years either. And remember, Minor is signed through 2020, so the Rangers don’t have to do anything with him this year if they don’t want to.

Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see what transpires with the lefty in the coming months (before the trade deadline). Here’s how I think the situation will play out…
