Athletics acquired LHP Sean Nolin, RHP Kendall Graveman, INF Brett Lawrie and SS Franklin Barreto from the Blue Jays for 3B Josh Donaldson.
The Athletics have been rumored to have interest in the 24-year-old southpaw for some time now, and he was undoubtedly one of the sticking points of the deal. He posted a 3.50 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 74/35 K/BB ratio over 87 1/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo in 2014 and should compete for a spot in the A's Opening Day rotation. Fri, Nov 28, 2014 10:45:00 PM

Blue Jays recalled LHP Sean Nolin from Triple-A Buffalo.

Nolin had a 3.50 ERA and 74/35 K/BB ratio in 87 1/3 innings over 17 starts this season in Triple-A. He got blasted in a spot-start with the Blue Jays last season, but will pitch out of the bullpen in his return to the majors this month.

Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Sean Nolin tossed his third straight shutout on Friday, striking out for and allowing four hits for Triple-A Buffalo.

Nolin has not allowed a run in 19 2/3 innings, and this was his first start without a walk. He did allow three doubles as part of his four hits, but he has generally limited extra base hits this season. With the struggles of R.A. Dickey, Dustin McGowan, and Brandon Morrow, Nolin could get a chance if he keeps up his hot streak.

Blue Jays left-handed pitching prospect Sean Nolin struck out seven batters in six shutout innings, allowing three hits (two doubles) and one walk for Triple-A Buffalo.

Batters are hitting .175/.257/.270 against Nolin for the season, and he sports a sparkling 2.70 ERA and a 11.3 K/9. He profiles as a #4 starter with the possibility to be a #3 starter, so there's no need to snatch him up until there is an opening in Toronto.

Blue Jays optioned LHP Sean Nolin to Double-A New Hampshire.

Nolin had a chance to impress and earn a spot in the Blue Jays' rotation, but was hit extremely hard in Friday's loss to the Orioles. He'll require more seasoning at the minor league level before he's ready to contribute for the Jays.

Sean Nolin really struggled in his major league debut Friday, giving up six runs in just 1 1/3 innings against the Orioles.

Nolin yielded seven hits, including a three-run homer to J.J. Hardy and a three-run homer to Nick Markakis. The young southpaw walked one and struck out none before being pulled in favor of Ramon Ortiz in the second inning. It's not clear if Nolin will get another start with the Jays, but it appears that he might not be ready for primetime.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Sean Nolin from Double-A New Hampshire.

Nolin will make his major league debut on Friday against the Orioles. A sixth-round pick in 2010, he has posted a 1.17 ERA and 16/5 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings this season at the Double-A level. The southpaw is worth a look in deeper AL-only formats.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons confirmed Thursday that Sean Nolin will start Friday against the Orioles.

Nolin, a sixth-round pick in 2010, has posted a 1.17 ERA and 16/5 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings (three starts) this season at the Double-A level. But the 23-year-old left-hander isn't really regarded as a top prospect and should be ignored in most standard fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays prospect Sean Nolin is expected to start Friday against the Orioles.

A sixth-round pick in 2010, Nolin has a 1.17 ERA and is striking out a batter per inning this year at Double-A New Hampshire. Chad Jenkins had also been a candidate to start but will likely be optioned to clear some roster room. Nolin has just six starts above the High-A level and is not a recommended streaming option in fantasy leagues.

The Blue Jays are considering calling up pitching prospect Sean Nolin to start on Friday against the Orioles.

Chad Jenkins is probably still the favorite to get the ball, but he'll be available out of the bullpen over the next few days. Ranked by Baseball America before the season as the club's 19th-best prospect, Nolan holds a 1.17 ERA while striking out a batter per inning this year at Double-A New Hampshire. The 23-year-old has made just six starts above A-ball.
