|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2:14 pm ET) Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco threw a bullpen session on Sunday, as he attempts to come back from an elbow injury that has him on the disabled list.
GM Terry Ryan said on Inside Twins that Nolasco's bullpen "went well". The next step will be a minor league rehab assignment at Class A Cedar Rapids, starting Saturday.
Twins SP Ricky Nolasco happy with how elbow is responding
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Twins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco has reported no issues with his elbow as he is at the beginning of his throwing program, per the Pioneer Press.
"It’s been really good. I’m happy about that," Nolasco said about how his elbow is responding.
Nolasco threw from 150 feet Friday and will do the same Saturday. He scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday.
Nolasco is eligible to come off the disabled list April 24.
Molitor: Ricky Nolasco likely to throw off mound Sunday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco appears to be making steady progress in his recovery from elbow inflammation that landed him on the disabled list.
Manager Paul Molitor revealed that the next step would be a mound session Sunday if Nolasco continues to move forward, per MLB.com.
"His long toss went really well if you can put a lot of stock into that," Molitor said. "I didn't think he'd have any problems with that. He's just continuing to extend. Saturday, he'll back off from throwing, and Sunday, if things go well the next couple days, he'll throw off the mound."
Nolasco will seek to improve his performance greatly upon his return. He was rocked for six earned runs in three innings in his only start of the season before going on the DL.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Twins general manager Terry Ryan said that pitcher Ricky Nolasco played long toss with no issues Wednesday, MLB.com reports.
Nolasco is on the disabled list with elbow inflammation. He'll be first eligible to be activated next weekend for his team's series against the Mariners, but there's no indication from the team that he'll be ready to return by that point. He surrendered six earned runs in three innings in his only start before heading to the disabled list.
Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco to play catch Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco is scheduled to play catch Wednesday, but remains uncertain for when he will come off the disabled list, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Nolasco is dealing with elbow inflammation, which landed him on the 15-day DL, and was hoping to be back with the club for next week's series against the Mariners. Now, that return date is in doubt.

Eye on MLB, April 10: Red Sox outlast Yankees 6-5 in 19 innings
At 6 hours, 49 minutes, it was the longest game by time in Red Sox history. After Chase Headley tied the score with a home run in the bottom of the ninth, Boston went ahead three times in extra innings, taking a lead for the final time on a sacrifice fly by Mookie Betts.
|2014 summary: Ricky Nolasco cashed in on a successful 2013 season, signing a four-year, $49 million deal with the Twins, but his tenure in Minnesota got off to a difficult start. Nolasco went 6-12 with a 5.38 ERA over 27 starts. He was especially ineffective in the first half, during which he registered a 5.90 ERA with 16 home runs allowed over 103 2/3 innings. In early July, Nolasco went on the disabled list for just over a month with an elbow strain, and when he returned, he was better. Nolasco saved his best work for September, when he posted a 2.93 ERA.|
Playing time status: Despite last season's difficulties, Nolasco will assume a spot in the Twins' rotation going into this season.
2015 outlook: Nolasco's first season in the American League was the worst of his nine-year career, but even at his best, Nolasco was no more than a streaming option in standard mixed leagues. It remains to be seen if he can get back to that level, so Nolasco is best reserved for your AL-only leagues.
