RICKY NOLASCO RUMORS

Twins' Nolasco after loss: 'It's been a terrible year'

MINNEAPOLIS -- After a mostly disappointing first year with the Twins, the hope was that Ricky Nolasco would finish the 2014 season on a high note. After two strong outings before Monday's start, that appeared to be the trend. But Nolasco was hit hard in the series opener against the Diamondbacks, allowing five runs on nine hits in just 4 2/3 innings as Arizona took the first...

Nolasco's strong effort saved by Twins' ninth-inning rally

Whatever was wrong with their Opening Day starter for most of the year, Ricky Nolasco seems to have fixed it. But now something is wrong with the Twins’ All-Star closer. Their former All-Star closer, too. Glen Perkins and Joe Nathan took turns blowing saves Tuesday, with the Twins getting the last chance to celebrate. Aaron Hicks, down to a 3-and-2 count and two outs, beat out...

Twins Injury Update: Ricky Nolasco activated from disabled list

The Minnesota Twins entered a weekend series against the Kansas Cit Royals with a record of 54-65, last in the American League Central. The Twins have held their own offensively, ranked 12th in the league in runs scored. What's hindered them all season is a pitching staff that is near the bottom in ERA. Injuries have taken their toll, as Mike Pelfrey is on the 60-day disabled...

Twins' Nolasco encouraged by solid start

MINNEAPOLIS -- On a night when Minnesota's offense exploded in a 10-2 win over the Kansas City Royals, the Twins' starting pitching may seemingly be a non-factor. But given the way things had gone for right-hander Ricky Nolasco this season, Tuesday's outing was an encouraging one. Though he was given plenty of run support, it was important for Nolasco to get through six...

Nolasco hit hard as Twins rotation struggles again

After nearly two weeks of solid starting pitching, the Twins rotation hit a wall in the first two games against the Angels. Things didn't get much better in the series finale. Minnesota right-hander Ricky Nolasco couldn't play the role of stopper for the Twins, as he allowed six runs on 11 hits and Los Angeles swept the three-game series with a 6-4 win on Thursday. It raised...

Minnesota Twins: 2014 AL Central predictions

Aaron Hicks With the regular season just around the corner, many people are starting to predict who will win each division, the wild cards, and even the World Series. The Minnesota Twins are predicted to appear again at or near the bottom of the American League Central Division. In this article, I’ll give my own prediction as to how the AL Central Division will possibly look at...

Ricky Nolasco gives the Dodgers a bonafide No. 3 starter for the playoffs

When the Dodgers traded for Ricky Nolasco, I wasn't particularly a fan of the move. They didn't give up a lot of value and talent for him, but I just didn't see the fit. I'm happy to say I was completely wrong (not the first time, certainly not the last). Nolasco improved to 8-1 as a Dodger on Monday night by shutting down the soon-to-be-eliminated-from-division...

Ricky Nolasco trade a win for the Los Angeles Dodgers

Ricky Nolasco After about a month’s worth of trade rumors surrounding Miami Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco, the Los Angeles Dodgers finally pulled the trigger on a deal for the veteran right-hander Saturday afternoon. Thankfully, the Dodgers willingness and ability to take on the remaining $5.7 million of Nolasco’s contract allowed for the very little in terms of talent, to head...

Dodgers Rumors: Dodgers "deep into talks" to acquire Ricky Nolasco

The Dodgers need pitching depth and appear to be getting it, while also stealing a pitcher from their rival Giants, Padres and Rockies. That's hitting two birds, with one stone. According to Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles, the Dodgers are "deep into talks" to acquire Miami Marlins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco. Acquiring Nolasco would give the Dodgers a pitching...
