  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Dealt to White Sox

    The Dodgers traded Nastrini, Jordan Leasure and Trayce Thompson to the White Sox on Friday in exchange for Lance Lynn and Joe Kelly, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. A fourth-round pick in the 2021 MLB Draft out of UCLA, Nastrini has pitched to a 4.02 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 85:27 K:BB in 73.2 innings (17 starts) this season at Double-A Tulsa. The 23-year-old right-hander will presumably report to the Double-A affiliate of the White Sox in Birmingham.

  • Dodgers' Nick Nastrini: Makes season debut

    Nastrini (undisclosed) made his season debut Thursday after being assigned to Double-A Tulsa, pitching three scoreless innings and striking out four in a 3-0 win over Wichita. He scattered one hit and three walks in the 47-pitch outing. Nastrini was held back in extended spring training to begin the Double-A season, either due to an injury or in a deliberate measure by the Dodgers to manage his innings. Whatever the case, the 23-year-old right-hander was cleared to make his debut two weeks into the season and generally looked good, aside from the three walks. Keeping the free passes in check will be essential for Nastrini to find success down the road, and until he's able to do that in the higher levels of the minors, the Dodgers may be reluctant to push him to the big leagues.

  • Dodgers' Nick Nastrini: Building up in extended ST

    Nastrini (undisclosed) is building up arm strength in extended spring training and will eventually report to Double-A Tulsa, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports. We don't have an official injury for Nastrini like we do with teammate Bobby Miller (shoulder), who is also getting held back in extended spring training. It's unclear if this is a significant setback or not, but Nastrini has been a strikeout machine in pro ball and will focus on limiting the free passes when he is ready to return to Double-A.
