Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco will start Sunday's game, WCCO's Dan Cook reports. He will face the Royals in the Twins' final game of 2015 after they were eliminated from the playoff picture Saturday. To say Nolasco has been a disappointment since signing with the Twins would be putting it lightly. He posted a 5.38 ERA in 159 innings in 2014 and has posted a 5.97 ERA in 34 2/3 innings in an injury-plagued 2015 campaign.
The Twins have reinstated pitcher Ricky Nolasco from the 60-day disabled list, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. There had been skepticism that Nolasco would return to the mound in 2015, but he'll make his comeback with 10 games left in the season. Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports that Twins manager Paul Molitor doesn't see a start for the veteran happening, so it will likely be a long relief and emergency starter role for him.

General manager Terry Ryan has repeatedly expressed his doubt that Nolasco would be able to pitch again with the major league team this season, but he's scheduled to return to Minnesota Tuesday. At this point it's unclear what his timetable is, but the club should have a clearer picture after Monday's outing.
