Marlins | Miami interested in two Minnesota hurlers

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:42:05 -0700

The Miami Marlins have expressed interest in Minnesota Twins SPs Ricky Nolasco and Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco is 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA through four starts this month and has battled command problems, issuing nine walks while striking out just eight batters over 20 innings. Milone has pitched better recently after enduring struggles of his own earlier this year, going 3-0 with a 2.33 ERA through three starts in July. Both players should see a slight uptick in fantasy value if they are dealt to the National League.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco bounced around

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 23:42:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed six earned runs, six hits and three walks over just two innings in a no-decision Saturday, July 23, against the Boston Red Sox. He threw just 35 of his 65 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco entered with three straight quality starts in the month of July, but this egg-laying will put doubt in the minds of fantasy owners yet again. He remains useful only in the deepest of AL fantasy formats at this point.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco takes tough loss

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 19:46:49 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed one earned run, three hits and three walks over six innings with no strikeouts Monday, July 18, in a hard-luck loss against the Detroit Tigers. He threw 60 of his 100 pitches for strikes to slip to 4-8.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco just received no run support in this one, as he pitched really well despite the lack of strikeouts. He has three quality starts in three starts in the month of July and has re-emerged as a useful AL-only option and low-priced DFS play.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco turns in quality start

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 22:58:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed four runs - three earned - and nine hits with no walks and two strikeouts over six innings in a quality start and win Saturday, July 9, against the Texas Rangers. He threw 64 of his 99 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco turned aside a very solid offense in a tough ballpark, but he still has a ways to go before re-emerging as anything more than a fantasy option in AL-only play.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar sitting Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 17:45:29 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is not in the lineup against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, July 9. 1B Mitch Moreland will play first base and bat eighth against SP Ricky Nolasco.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland has some pop in his bat, but he is nothing more than a roll-of-the-dice play in DFS formats.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco gets knocked around

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 21:06:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed seven runs and nine hits over 5 2/3 innings in a second straight loss Wednesday, June 29, against the Chicago White Sox. He also walked one and struck out five, throwing 62 of his 95 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco's ERA (5.31) and WHIP (1.38) are slightly above his career averages, and he should only be trusted in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if you're desperate for starting pitching.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco falls to 3-5 with loss

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:41:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco took the loss Thursday, June 23, opposite the Philadelphia Phillies after surrendering four runs on 10 hits in 6 2/3 innings. He also walked four and struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco had actually been pitching well as of late before today's outing, with four quality starts in his past five tries, but the 11-year veteran failed to keep it going opposite Philadelphia. With an ERA just south of 5.00, Nolasco is a risky play in the deepest of leagues.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco has better outing

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:09:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco fell to 1-2 after losing his start Wednesday, May 18, against the Detroit Tigers. He went five innings and surrendered four runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk, while striking out six.

Fantasy Tip: There's nothing spectacular to take away from this outing, but it was a step in the right direction for Nolasco, who had given up at least four runs in each of his prior four starts. Even so, it's hard to trust the veteran right now, and as a result, he's really only someone to implement mostly in AL-only leagues at this point in time.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco roughed up in Chitown

Fri, 06 May 2016 22:19:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed seven runs - five earned - and nine hits with two walks and six strikeouts over five innings in a loss Friday, May 6, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco had been sailing along pretty nicely, but he just didn't have it in this one. Consider this just one poor start and don't give up on him in fantasy until this becomes a regular happening.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco fans nine batters

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:49:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco allowed four earned runs, five hits and no walks with nine strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday, April 26, against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco has piled up 24 strikeouts over 27 2/3 innings with a 0.90 WHIP through four outings. He has re-emerged as a useful fantasy option in AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats, and he is a value play in DFS.
