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...

Diamondbacks-Twins Preview

Barring something unforeseen, the Minnesota Twins and Arizona Diamondbacks will finish at the bottom of their respective divisions. The Diamondbacks also have a chance at finishing with a pair of ugly skids. With a resurgent Ricky Nolasco on the mound, Minnesota will try to send Arizona to its season high-tying seventh loss in a row and 11th straight away from home in Monday'...

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...

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...

Royals need to take advantage of final series with last-place Minny

Having lost back-to-back games for the first time in nearly a month, the Kansas City Royals will try to keep that skid brief by continuing their success against the Minnesota Twins. In Tuesday night's series opener, the AL Central leaders will also get to face Ricky Nolasco, who was lackluster against Kansas City in his return from the disabled list less than two weeks ago.

Deal for Matt Garza Looking Good for Brewers

The contracts given to Ubaldo Jimenez, Ricky Nolasco and Matt Garza by the Orioles, Twins and Brewers, respectively, were remarkably similar. Each called for at least four years and roughly $12.5 million per year, then the going rate for what the offseason market deemed to be middle-tier but still highly valuable starters. The deal between Jimenez and the Orioles looks to be a straight...

Gomes goes for more against Nolasco

Ricky Nolasco's return to the mound last week didn't give the Minnesota Twins any more confidence in what he can do. The same can be said about his first two outings against the Cleveland Indians as he served up homers to Yan Gomes in both. Gomes was the hitting star in the opener of this three-game set and will try to add to Nolasco's misery Wednesday night at Target...

What will the Twins rotation look like next season?

The Twins, at 11 games out of first place, are at a point where they can safely begin thinking of next year. I do believe that it’s important to continue to show strides this year. As many complaints as they have had, they haven’t hit their late season swoon yet, and they have a very good chance at 70 wins this season. It would show the players on the roster that there is hope...

Nolasco's return spoiled by 'one bad inning'

MINNEAPOLIS -- At first, it seemed more than a month of recuperation had done Ricky Nolasco some good. Then a familiar face displayed a sliver of his 2012 self. Former Twins outfielder Josh Willingham, back at Target Field for the first time since being traded Monday to Kansas City, provided the game-turning swing in a 6-5 Royals victory that nudged the American League Central Division...
