Nolasco Must Be Hurt Update….

UPDATE – Apparently Nolasco wasn’t hurt, he is just really, really, really bad right now. After last night’s performance, the Marlins sent Nolasco down to Triple A. Ouch!!! Someone get Tim Kurkjian on phone. Has there ever been a pitcher who won 15 games the year before and was then demoted to the minors the next year? Not sent sent to the minors to recover from an injury, but sent to the minors because of performance. Can anyone think of a pitcher this has happened to?


I am going to keep this post short and sweet. After Friday nights horrific performance, Florida Marlins pitcher Ricky Nolasco has to be hurt. Nolasco is too good to be this bad. Before the season, many experts thought Nolasco could compete for the Cy Young Award. Something has to be up with this guy. Friday night Nolasco gave up 8 hits and runs in just 2 innings of work. He is now 2-5 with a beer league softball like 9.07 ERA on the season.

Are you hurt Ricky?

Are you hurt Ricky?

Like with Kazmir, Wang and Oliver Perez, I am guessing the Marlins come up with some injury for Nolasco so they can put him on the DL and get him straightened out. In my 25 years of following baseball, I can’t remember when so many good pitchers have performed this bad so far into the season.

If you have Nolasco on your fantasy team, sit him until he proves he has gotten his head out of the sand.
