Nolasco Bounces Back
Ricky Nolasco had the worst year of his MLB career last season. Nolasco’s ERA jumped up 1.68 between 2013 and 2014. It might be tougher to pitch in the American League compared to the National League, the league Nolasco called home for his entire career before coming to Minnesota. It’s not a huge prediction to say Nolasco will be better, but all Minnesota Twins fans should be hoping so. A third pitcher is crucial to success.
