  • Sean Nolin: Reaches free agency

    Nolin elected free agency Friday.

    Nolin made a three-inning appearance for the Marlins in April but otherwise spent the entire 2023 campaign in the minors. The 33-year-old southpaw compiled a 4.37 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 22.2 innings at Triple-A Jacksonville but didn't make any appearances after the All-Star break due to an unspecified injury.

  • Marlins' Sean Nolin: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Nolin was outrighted to Triple-A Jacksonville by the Marlins on Thursday.

    Miami designated Nolin for assignment Tuesday, and he passed through waivers unclaimed. The 33-year-old left-hander owns a career 6.34 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 37:28 K:BB across 61 innings at the major-league level.

  • Marlins' Sean Nolin: Designated for assignment

    Nolin was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Bryan Hoeing, who is joining the Marlins' rotation Tuesday night in Atlanta. Nolin surrendered six earned runs over three innings of relief Monday while making his first appearance in the majors since 2021.

  • Marlins' Sean Nolin: Called up to Miami

    The Marlins selected Nolin's contract from Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    After the Marlins acquired him from the Twins earlier this month, Nolin had made just one appearance with his new organization, allowing four runs -- three earned -- over four innings in an April 19 start for Jacksonville. He'll give the bullpen a fresh arm for Monday's series opener in Atlanta, and though the Marlins currently have an opening in the rotation for Tuesday, the veteran left-hander is uncertain to get the start even if he goes unused Monday.

  • Twins' Sean Nolin: Catches on with Twins

    Nolin signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Friday.

    Nolin spent 2022 in Korea with the Kia Tigers, putting up a 2.47 ERA in 21 starts. The left-hander got into 10 games with the Nationals in 2021 following a five-year major-league absence.

  • Sean Nolin: Heads overseas again

    Nolin signed with the Kia Tigers of the KBO on Saturday.

    This is Nolin's second time signing with a club on the other side of the Pacific, as he played with the Saitama Seibu Lions in Japan in 2020. He posted a passable 4.39 ERA in five starts and five relief appearances for the Nationals in 2021, but that came with a poor combination of a 16.3 percent strikeout rate and a 10.6 percent walk rate. The 32-year-old's MLB days may be over unless he catches fire in Korea.

  • Sean Nolin: Elects free agency

    Nolin elected free agency after he was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Nolin made his return to the majors during the 2021 campaign and posted a 4.39 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 26.2 innings across 10 appearances (five starts). The 31-year-old will now be free to seek out other opportunities during the offseason.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Moves to bullpen

    Nolin tossed three scoreless innings of long relief Saturday in the Nationals' 6-0 loss to the Rockies. He scattered three walks and a base hit and struck out two in the 51-pitch appearance.

    Before he was handed a five-game suspension for throwing at Atlanta's Freddie Freeman in a Sept. 8 outing, Nolin had picked up five starts for Washington, posting a 5.60 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across those outings. Rather than returning Nolin to the rotation once his suspension was completed, Washington elected to keep Josh Rogers in the fold as its fifth starter. Unless the Nationals lose another rotation member over the final two weeks of the season, Nolin looks like he'll work out of the bullpen down the stretch.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Returns from suspension

    The Nationals activated Nolin (suspension) ahead of Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

    Nolin is back in the fold for Washington after he completed his five-game suspension Tuesday. Before receiving the ban for intentionally throwing at Freddie Freeman in his Sept. 8 start, Nolin had compiled a 5.60 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 17.2 innings. Those poor numbers make it far from a safe bet that Nolin will take back a rotation spot from Josh Rogers, who gave up two runs on 6.2 innings in his previous start last weekend in Pittsburgh. Rogers will get another starting nod Wednesday, and Nolin will likely be available in bulk relief if needed.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Drops appeal

    Nolin will begin serving his five-game suspension Friday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Nolin initially planned to appeal his suspension for intentionally hitting Freddie Freeman on Wednesday, but he'll be unavailable for the next five games after he dropped his appeal. The southpaw's suspension is unlikely to have a significant impact on his next turn through the rotation, as the team will be able to push him back a day. Nolin now tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Marlins on Wednesday.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Appealing five-game suspension

    Nolin was handed a five-game suspension Friday for intentionally hitting Freddie Freeman with a pitch earlier in the week, but he'll appeal the ban and will remain available until his appeal is heard, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Nolin appeared to be retaliating for an incident in which Juan Soto was hit by a pitch Tuesday, as he threw behind Freeman with his first pitch the next day and hit him with his second. Manager Dave Martinez was also handled a one-game ban and will elect not to appeal.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Ejected early Wednesday

    Nolin was ejected during the first inning of Wednesday's game against Atlanta for intentionally hitting Freddie Freeman with a pitch, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Nationals star Juan Soto was plunked during the ninth inning of Tuesday's contest, and this appeared to be a direct retaliation by the left-hander. Nolin threw behind Freeman on the first pitch before hitting him with the second offering, after which he was ejected. Washington's bullpen will need to record all but one out Wednesday, while Nolin is likely to face additional discipline from the league. According to Mark Zuckerman of, the 31-year-old could be utilized out of the bullpen Thursday after manager Dave Martinez was forced to rely heavily on his relievers due to the ejection.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Solid in no-decision

    Nolin didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 extra-inning loss to the Mets, giving up two runs on five hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out three.

    Facing the Mets for the third time in four starts since joining the Nats' rotation, Nolin didn't have much trouble navigating through the New York lineup despite the familiarity. The journeyman southpaw tossed 63 of 102 pitches for strikes but was in line for his third loss of the year until the Washington offense finally showed a flicker of life against Edwin Diaz in the ninth inning. Nolin has managed a palatable 3.48 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 9:1 K:BB through 10.1 innings over his last two outings, and the organization has no better options for his rotation spot.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Strikes out six in no-decision

    Nolin allowed two runs on six hits with six strikeouts through 5.1 innings, taking a no-decision in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Mets.

    In just his third major-league start since returning from a six-year hiatus, Nolin turned in his best outing of the season. He handled everybody not named Kevin Pillar on the night, as the only damage to his line came via two solo homers off the bat of the Mets' outfielder. He has now allowed four home runs in just 12.1 innings.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Coughs up three runs

    Nolin (0-2) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against Milwaukee.

    Nolin's rough afternoon started right out of the gate with Kolten Wong taking him deep for a leadoff homer on Nolin's second pitch of the game. The 31-year-old southpaw then gave up a two-run triple to Wong in the fourth. In his two big-league appearances this season, Nolin's been tagged with seven runs in as many innings while taking a loss in both. For now, it's unclear if he'll get another turn in the rotation.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Set to start Sunday

    Nolin will start Sunday's game against the Brewers, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Nolin took the loss in the first game of an Aug. 12 doubleheader against the Mets, allowing four runs on eight hits across three innings. Despite the underwhelming outing, the left-hander will get another opportunity to earn his second career big-league win Sunday. Manager Dave Martinez wouldn't commit to Nolin taking Joe Ross' (elbow) rotation spot permanently, but that figures to be a possibility.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Tagged with loss

    Nolin (0-1) took the loss in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Nationals. He allowed four runs on eight hits with two strikeouts and zero walks in three innings.

    Nolin made his first MLB appearance since 2015, and New York didn't have any issues getting on base against him. It'll likely only be a spot start for the left-hander since Washington has three scheduled off days within the next couple weeks.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Making first MLB start since 2015

    Nolin is listed as the Nationals' starting pitcher for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Mets.

    Called up from Triple-A Rochester a day earlier to give Washington an extra arm out of the bullpen for the resumption of Tuesday's suspended contest, Nolin wasn't needed after Joe Ross (five innings) handled bulk-relief duties. Due to Thursday's twin bill, the Nationals will need to add a sixth starter to the mix temporarily, so Nolin will get the nod for what will mark his first MLB start since 2015. The 31-year-old lefty compiled a 3.80 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 52:15 K:BB across 47.1 innings at Rochester this season.

  • Nationals' Sean Nolin: Contract selected by Nationals

    Nolin's contract was selected by the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Nolin began the 2021 campaign at Triple-A Rochester after he played for the Seibu Lions of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball last season. He's posted a 3.78 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 52.1 innings across 12 appearances (nine starts), and the 31-year-old lefty could be an option to start or eat innings in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Mets. The Nationals optioned reliever Sam Clay to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
