Ricky Nolasco provides an opportunity for the Angels

Ricky Nolasco lasted 5.2 innings before exiting the game with a calf cramp. He allowed five hits and three walks to total just two earned runs for the Nationals. He also managed to fan six on his way to his sixth win of the season on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Nolasco needed this bounce-back performance after allowing 10 earned runs in his past two outings (9.0 innings total). Not much is thought to come from the calf cramp, so he should be set to make his next start agains the Rangers. Ricky isn't going to win you any fantasy championships, but with the Angels surging late, he is certainly a considerable streaming option. He also a sneaky DFS play, however as indicated by his ups and downs, it could prove difficult to pick your spots with Nolasco.

Ricky Nolasco provides solid outing, yet the Tribe came out on top

Ricky Nolasco spun 6.2 innings, allowing nine hits and two walks to total three earned runs. He managed to fan four while picking up his 12th loss.

Fantasy Impact

The Angels rotation is far from great, so this outing from the veteran should come with a a warm welcome. However, the Angels' bats failed to supply much run support and Nolasco was hit with yet another L. His season-long numbers are ugly (5.13 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 4-11) but he can provide a great DFP start every now and then. He dealt a complete game three-hitter against the Mariners July 1st, so he could help players come up big before the season's end.

Ricky Nolasco falls apart in the first inning against Boston

Ricky Nolasco gave up six earned runs over 4.0 innings on a total of nine hits. He struck out just one batter.

Fantasy Impact

Nolasco is alternating quality starts with mechanic breakdowns week-to-week dating back to June 21st. He will continue to see starts considering the Angels lack quality starters, but fantasy owners should stray away from deploying Ricky in any tough matchup. He is solid low-cost DFP play if you pick your spots correctly.

Ricky Nolasco shines in no-decision effort on Friday

Ricky Nolasco spun 7.0 innings, allowing just two hits and two walks. He finished with only one earned run and fanned six.

Fantasy Impact

If it weren't for the 1.2 inning, 8 run, disaster he put out in his last start against the Rangers, we might be rushing to the waiver wire. That monstrosity excluded, he has just one earned run since June 26th (three starts). This type of inconsistency screams DFS-gem, and you may want to consider this low-cost option on days where the big sluggers have good match ups.

Ricky Nolasco spins a quality start on Monday against the Dodgers

Ricky Nolasco (3-9) pitched 6.1 innings on his way to a quality start against a red-hot Dodgers club on Monday. The Angels walked away with the win.

Fantasy Impact

It's highly unlikely anyone started Nolasco against Dodgers, but those that did are living today in glory. He also managed to fan five while pitching into the seventh inning with a shut-out. Don't expect dominance like this every time out, but the performance does put him on the low-cost/high-payoff radar in DFP. It's worth noting that Nolasco was removed from the game after taking two line drives to the leg. This was likely just precautionary, but keep an eye out to see if he lines up for another start next week.
