RICKY NOLASCO RUMORS

Twins place Nolasco on DL, recall Herrmann

One day after it was announced that Ricky Nolasco has been dealing with a sore elbow, the Minnesota Twins placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right elbow. To take Nolasco's place on the 25-man roster, the Twins recalled catcher/outfielder Chris Herrmann from Triple-A Rochester. Nolasco, who lasted just two innings Sunday against the Yankees, had not made any...

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: Hughes takes reigns as leader

Phil Hughes Near the beginning of the season, it had looked like the Minnesota Twins’ leading starting pitcher was going to be Kyle Gibson. Now, with one week left in the second month of regular season play, it looks like the reigns have been taken over by Phil Hughes. A few weeks ago, I had said that Gibson was on the path to becoming the next Johan Santana for the Twins pitching...

Twins newcomer Nolasco endures unfortunate Opening Day

With big contracts come big expectations, and Ricky Nolasco is no exception. Nolasco signed a four-year, $49 million deal with Minnesota this past winter, the biggest contract ever given to a free agent in Twins history. He was one of multiple pieces brought in with the hope of solidifying what had been a brutal starting rotation. It's only one game, but Nolasco's Twins debut...

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...

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...
