Twins | Ricky Nolasco looking for another opinion

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:04:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is set to receive another opinion on his injured left ankle, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has a 5.40 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP and 6.7 K/9 over his last 34 starts. Those aren't the statistics fantasy owners are looking for, in any format. At best, Nolasco is worth the odd spot start in the most favorable of matchups when healthy. Continue to check back for updates on what is next for the starter.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco to see specialist

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 16:27:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) will see a specialist, but the organization does not think he will require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 34 starts, Nolasco ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has a 5.40 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP and 6.7 K/9. Those numbers don't float in any fantasy format, and Nolasco should only be spot started in the most favorable of matchups. Continue to check back for updates.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco won't undergo surgery

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 17:11:03 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) will receive a cortisone injection in his right ankle, according to general manager Terry Ryan. Surgery is not being considered as an option at this point.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear how much time Nolasco ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will miss. For the time being, Tommy Milone ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will be in the starting rotation while Nolasco is sidelined but he is only worthy of consideration in deep AL-only leagues.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco may need injection

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 15:40:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) had a CAT scan on his ankle reveal that his current injury is related to an old injury. One option for treatment will be a cortisone injection.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Nolasco will be out of action on the DL. He's worth holding in AL-only leagues after the way he bounced back after his first DL stint this year. Tommy Milone, who has entered the rotation temporarily, is a weak FantasyScore play and only valuable to those desperate for starting arms in AL leagues.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco put on 15-day DL

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 18:15:50 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, June 4, due to an injured right ankle. The decision was made after Nolasco threw a short side session Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) doesn't hold much fantasy value when healthy, and he holds even less now. Nolasco can rarely be used in stream situations when he gets back to 100% health.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco's MRI clean

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:19:14 -0700

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) had an MRI Tuesday, June 2, which was negative. He'll throw Thursday, June 4, and manager Paul Molitor said the team would go from there.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) rotation spot might be in jeopardy regardless of the injury. It's best to avoid him on FantasyScore.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco unlikely for Friday

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:35:59 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) is not expected to make his scheduled start Friday, June 5, against the Milwaukee Brewers. The team will let him throw off a mound Thursday, June 4, and that will "probably" rule him out for Friday, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: With Nolasco unlikely for Friday the team could turn to long man J.R. Graham, or pluck Tommy Milone from the minors, to fill the void.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco might pitch Friday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:52:59 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) might start the game Friday, June 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays if he is healthy enough.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and work through an entire start without any setbacks. If he cannot go it might be Tommy Milone subbing for him.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco exits early

Sun, 31 May 2015 19:14:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) left after 28 pitches against the Toronto Blue Jays with an ankle injury Sunday, May 31. Results of an MRI are pending, and the team said he is day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) was coming off three straight solid outings, but he lasted just one inning Sunday. He was showing signs of being a useful source of cap relief at FantasyScore, but check back for results of the MRI before using him going forward.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco posts seven strikeouts

Wed, 13 May 2015 21:35:16 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed two unearned runs, four hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts in a win Wednesday, May 14, against the Detroit Tigers. "We really worked on closing my front side in the bullpen, and with enough repetition, I was able to keep that rhythm in the game," Nolasco said.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco hasn't been working deep into games, but he is improving and he is a solid FantasyScore value at just $3,200 (or 6.4% of cap).
