Nolasco (4-10) allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a loss Monday to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Nolasco has been predictably mediocre since he was dealt to the Angels. Despite a solid 13:4 K:BB, Nolasco has now allowed a 5.19 EERA and 1.38 WHIP over 17.1 innings. He was tagged for a home run by Nelson Cruz, giving him four homers allowed in just three starts. Too many hits and too many homers -- these are the same problems he had in Minnesota and has had for much of his career, and there's little reason to expect he'll turn it around now.

Nolasco (4-9) struck out six while allowing the Cubs just two runs on six hits and a walk in six innings Wednesday, but was stuck with a hard-luck loss.

EDGE Analysis

This was much better than his first outing after being dealt to Anaheim -- a three-homer, five-run effort against Oakland. We've seen Nolasco turn in a handful of finely polished outings like this one in 2016, but they've been mixed in with enough blowups that he remains impossible to deploy in most fantasy formats. Nolasco will next toe the rubber against Seattle on Monday.

Nolasco gave up five runs on six hits (including three homers) while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision against the A's on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

While Nolasco didn't walk a batter, he was still rather lucky to escape with just the five earned runs allowed -- all three homers he served up were solo shots. The 33-year-old tossed eight innings of one-run ball in his final start for Minnesota on July 29, but he's mostly struggled since April, and Nolasco lines up to face the Cubs (in Chicago) next week. That's probably one to avoid.

Nolasco will get his first start with the Angels as the team faces Oakland on Thursday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nolasco was traded to the Angels on Monday, and will take the mound Thursday with Tim Lincecum starting Friday against the Mariners. Throughout the 2016 season, Nolasco has posted a 4-8 record with a 5.13 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP for the Twins.

Nolasco has been traded to the Angels, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels are also receiving Alex Meyer in the trade, which sends Hector Santiago to Minnesota along with reliever Alan Busenitz. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the Twins are believed to be sending cash to the Angels to offset some of the remaining money on Nolasco's contract, which runs through the end of 2017. Nolasco figures to slot into an Angels rotation that has been ravaged by injuries this season.

Nolasco (4-8) pitched eight beautiful innings, allowing just one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six in a no-decision Friday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Friday was by far Nolasco's best effort of the season. He set or matched his season-best marks for innings pitched, runs allowed and hits against. It's been a miserable campaign for the veteran, and the fact that Nolasco walked away from Friday's gem with a no-decision just about sums up his luck this season. He'll take a 5.40 ERA into Cleveland on Wednesday for his next start.

Nolasco didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox, giving up six earned runs on six hits and three walks over two innings. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty simply didn't have it Saturday, throwing a whopping 65 pitches over his two frames and getting touched up for four runs in the second inning alone on a Dustin Pedroia ground-rule double and a three-run shot by Hanley Ramirez. The outing was Nolasco's shortest of the season, and the six earned runs equaled his second-highest total in that category in 2016. The 33-year-old has given up 13 runs (12 earned) over three of his last four starts, and has surrendered at least one homer in six of his last seven trips to the mound. He'll look to bounce back when he takes on the White Sox next Friday.

Nolasco (4-8) was a tough-luck loser on Monday, allowing just one run over six innings against the Tigers. He allowed three hits, walked three and failed to strike out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

Nolasco's three walks and zero strikeouts aren't promising, but his one earned run was the fewest he'd allowed in a start since April 21. The veteran righty has not had a particularly strong season, posting a 5.02 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. His next start will come Saturday in Boston.

Nolasco gave up four runs (three earned) over six innings on nine hits with two strikeouts to improve to 4-7 in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

It was a pretty typical outing for Nolasco as he didn't walk a batter (1.8 BB/9 this season) but also gave up nine hits (1.2 H/9 this season). He's made all 18 starts in the first half and provides some innings for the Twins, but he's put his team in a position to win most games.

Nolasco gave up three runs over six innings with four strikeouts and three walks, but got a no-decision Monday against Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Nolasco bounced back after giving up seven earned runs in his last start. He also ended a poor stretch (21 ER in 31 IP) to post his first quality start since June 18. While Nolasco gives up too many hits, he's not getting any help from his bullpen as they've allowed multiple inherited runs to score in his last two starts.
