Twins' Ricky Nolasco allows one run in five innings Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco allowed one run on three hits and one walk in five innings during Tuesday's spring start against the Blue Jays. He struck out six.

Nolasco allowed his only run on a solo homer to Josh Donaldson in the fifth inning.

"Curveball was going pretty good," Nolasco said of his outing, per MLB.com. "Trying to attack, throw strikes. It's definitely not a lineup you want to pitch behind to, so I was able to get ahead and put away some guys. Got a little sloppy there in the fifth with two outs, but I was able to get out of that, so it was OK."

Nolasco has allowed just one run in three of his four spring starts. He has a 3.95 ERA.

Ricky Nolasco goes three innings strong vs. Cardinals
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco worked past a minor hiccup and was able to put together three solid innings of work Saturday against the Cardinals.

Randal Grichuk took him deep for a solo home run to left-center field in the second inning for his only blemish of the day. He allowed one run on four hits (three singles) and one walk while striking out two over three innings of work. He tossed 49 pitches, 29 of which were called strikes.

"It was fine," Nolasco said, per MLB.com. "Felt good the whole time. Had to make some pitches. They're always a tough team to pitch against. They're always grinding at-bats. It was a good test. Just work on things."

Twins' Ricky Nolasco strikes out three in first spring start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco made his first spring start Monday against the Pirates. He allowed one run on two hits, while striking out three in two innings. 

Nolasco retired the first two batters before allowing back-to-back doubles to Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker. He limited the damage to one run by striking out Starling Marte. 

Nolasco was much better in the second inning, striking out the first two batters and retiring the side in order.

"It was good," Nolasco said, per MLB.com. "Everything felt sharp. The sinker was running pretty good. I threw a couple sharp breaking balls. I wanted to get a lot of fastballs in early, and I was able to do that.

"I feel strong. It's not like I wasn't last year, but I just made a different approach to it this year. I feel strong and that my legs are under me. So it was a good first day."

Twins SP Ricky Nolasco likes how he is throwing at start of camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes came away impressed after watching fellow starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco throw a bullpen session Monday. Hughes was particularly impressed with the movement Nolasco got on his sinker, per the Pioneer Press.

"He was throwing some two-seamers that were just falling off," Hughes said. "It was one of the best sinkers I've seen. That was encouraging to see. I think he's really going to have a bounce-back year. If he gets back on track, and obviously having Ervin (Santana), we'll be in good shape."

Nolasco, who has been throwing bullpens for weeks, said he already feels a difference in his elbow following an injury-marred first half in 2014.

"It's been good these last couple weeks, just kind of toning things up a little bit, being able to let things go a tad bit more (with) a little more extension," Nolasco said. "I think that will help to know I'm not re-straining anything.

"I feel a lot better. I could get all the way out there and not have to think twice about it. It's a good feeling for now."
