Coming to Ricky Nolasco, a guy that is very much like Ervin Santana, the Twins find their third starter. Ricky Nolasco was abysmal in 2014, but he has a chance to chalk it up as a mulligan. Word around the league was that Nolasco spent much of the season pitching injured. Removing the outlier that was 2014, Nolasco has thrown to the tune of a 4.33 ERA and 7.0 K/9 since 2010. He is a quality pitcher, and if the Twins can get him to return to his previous National League form in 2015, he sets up as a very solid middle of the rotation option.
