Mike Minor allowed one hit in five scoreless innings for Class-A Rome in his third minor league rehab start Friday, and the left-hander is tentatively set to join the Braves starting rotation April 23 or April 25. Gavin Floyd also made his third minor league rehab start Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) and three hits in 3-2/3 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett, and throwing 73 pitches. The veteran right-hander is scheduled to make three more minor league starts before possibly coming off the disabled list in a couple of weeks. Floyd is in the final stages of rehab from Tommy John surgery in May 2103. Minor is scheduled to make one more minor league start Friday for Double-A Mississippi. Afterward, he and the Braves will decide whether to insert him into the rotation next week. Minor has been building arm strength after developing shoulder tendinitis in the first week of spring training.
