|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Twins starter Ricky Nolasco moved to 4-1 on the season with a win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Nolasco gave up 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings, giving up four runs--three earned. He walked one batter and struck out eight.
"I felt good getting back to that feeling where I can strike guys out when I want to," Nolasco said,per MLB.com. "It's nice getting all those runs with us having good at-bats. All I was trying to do was get us back to the dugout as quick as possible."
Nolasco threw 62 strikes in 93 pitches and lowered his ERA to 6.00. His next start is Monday against Boston.
Twins' Ricky Nolasco strikes out seven in win Wednesday

|(5/13/15) Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco earned a win on Wednesday, allowing two unearned runs on four hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 6-2 victory over the Tigers.
Nolasco (3-1) picked up his third straight win with the excellent showing, enjoying a 6-0 lead by the middle of the third inning and allowing his two unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth.
"It was a good game for us getting a win here in Detroit after four losses," manager Paul Molitor said after the game, per MLB.com. "We kept our optimism from Ricky from what we saw from him in spring training. He threw the ball well. He had a little more velocity out of the chute, and you could tell his breaking pitches, both his slider and curveball, were sharp early."
Nolasco owns a 6.38 ERA and 14:9 K:BB ratio in 18 1/3 innings across four starts. He's slated to face the Pirates in Pittsburgh Tuesday.
Twins SP Ricky Nolasco battles to get second win on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) Making his second start since returning from the disabled list, Twins starter Ricky Nolasco lasted five innings on Thursday against the A's. He allowed six hits and four runs, while walking one and striking out one, while earning his second victory of the season.
"I just tried to figure out a way to keep the team in there, and the boys picked it up today," Nolasco said, per MLB.com. "The offense and the bullpen came in and [I] got lucky enough to get a win."
Nolasco (2-1) labored, throwing 94 pitches (57 strikes) in the five innings and actually left the game with his team down by a run. But a two-run rally in the bottom of the fifth helped the right-hander secure the victory.
Nolasco, who missed nearly a month while recovering from elbow inflammation, will take a lofty 9.00 ERA into his next scheduled start on Wednesday in Detroit.
Twins starter Ricky Nolasco returns from DL to earn win Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/2/15) Twins starter Ricky Nolasco (1-1) returned from the disabled list Saturday to throw five solid innings and earn the win against the White Sox.
Nolasco allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out four in the victory.
"I felt good," said Nolasco to MLB.com. "It was a huge sigh of relief to throw pain-free. That was the most important thing. It was a battle. I was pretty anxious to get out there but thought I settled down and got of a few jams there. But a couple two-out hits cost me a couple runs."
Nolasco was pitching in Class A for his rehab assignment because of right elbow inflammation.
Nolasco's next start is set for Thursday against the Athletics.

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.
