Ricky Nolasco traded to Dodgers

Main difference is probably that he is only 1st year arbitration eligible this season whereas Nolasco is a 3 month rental. Even so, I highly doubt they get 2 top prospects for him.

The Astros are looking for a return of two top prospects for Bud Norris. MLBTR calls that reasonable

Nolasco before he was traded: 3.85 ERA, 1.220 WHIP
Norris so far this season: 3.63 ERA, 1.412 WHIP

so, if Loria was willing to cover Nolasco's contract we could have gotten two top prospects. great


Norris is under club control for 2 more years, I think, and he's being paid like 3M this year. He's also younger.

Nolasco pitched in a pitchers park. Norris in a hitters park. That may be their justification.


I'd say that's doubtful since Norris pitched much better at home than on the road.
