Yes, he is a guy worth grabbing. 12 Ks just a couple starts a go. This guy has great potential at the back of a fantasy rotation.

I just picked him up for next week's home start vs. WAS, I also grabbed Cueto to spot against WAS so I'm really singling out the Nationals next week, haha.

I like Nolasco, I read an article that said he had incorporated a cut fastball to increase his effectiveness throwing inside to lefties. Obviously the cutter isn't like a killer, unhittable type pitch, but it does explain how a guy w/ a career 313 avg vs. lefties has dropped it to 280+ this season. Also, the cutter is really something he's only worked fully into the mix recently in his 12 K game and his 2 starts following...so there's definitely hope he becomes a more balanced pitcher capable of getting hitters out from both sides of the plate.

He received rave reviews this spring too. I just didn't have the balls to draft him. I've picked him up in a couple of leagues.

Injuries has hampered his development the last 2yrs... I'm not sure how much upside Nolasco has but I think he can be a solid #3 or #4 starter for your fantasy team. He has been outstanding though the last few games.
