MLB: Previewing Matchups for Wednesday, April 8

Minnesota Twins @ Detroit Tigers, 1:08 pm After a convincing 4-0 win over the Twins on Opening Day, the Tigers will send Anibal Sanchez to the hill against Twins hurler Ricky Nolasco.

Nolasco’s new year begins today

The Twins brought in Ricky Nolasco at the start of the 2014 season to fix a major problem — starting pitching. He wound up becoming another part of the problem, struggling for much of his first season in Minneapolis. Nolasco’s first season with the Twins was terrible by most standards. He finished the year 6-12 with a 5.38 ERA in 27 starts. A 2.93 September ERA gave fans...

The Tigers Leadoff: The Tigers look to make it two straight against the Twins

Meanwhile, Sanchez (who was limited to 21...

Preview: Twins at Tigers

Former teammates Anibal Sanchez and Ricky Nolasco have both been moved up in their respective rotations for different reasons, and at least for now the impact of those changes seem likely to be less damaging to one. Sanchez will try to pitch the Detroit Tigers to their first series win in four tries Wednesday against the visiting Minnesota Twins, who are hoping for a bounce-back...

Phil Hughes expecting bounce back year from Ricky Nolasco

Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters yesterday that Phil Hughes has been “penciled in” as the team’s Opening Day starter this year, but Hughes seemed more excited to talk about last year’s Opening Day starter Ricky Nolasco rather than his role at the top of Minnesota’s rotation.

Santana improves Twins' starting rotation, gives team options

MINNEAPOLIS -- In the last two winters, the Minnesota Twins have doled out the two largest free agent contracts in franchise history.

Twins Rumors: Minnesota to address rotation

2014 was yet another miserable season -- pitching wise --  for the Minnesota Twins. Heading into 2014, the Twin's plan was to have a rotation anchored by veterans. Phil Hughes produced a quality season, but other starters like Kevin Correia, Ricky Nolasco, and Kyle Gibson all struggled. The Twin Cities could be a potential landing spot for one of the free agent market's top pitchers...

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 game...

End of season post-mortem: Minnesota Twins

The Twins are probably going to end 2014 with their best record since 2010, but given that they’re coming off three-straight 96-loss seasons, that’s not exactly a consolation. This once proud franchise has fallen onto rough times, and their 2014 season could be their most disappointing year considering the additions the club made in the offseason.

Hot-hitting Twins limited by dismal starting pitching

The Twins' 12-8 loss Sunday to Baltimore was a microcosm of how Minnesota's month of August went: plenty of offense, not nearly enough pitching. On a day when the Twins scored eight runs and finished with 15 hits, it should have been enough for the pitching staff to earn the win, or at least hang in the game. But right-hander Ricky Nolasco served up eight runs in five-plus innings...
