Another former top prospect of the Blue Jays, southpaw Sean Nolin didn’t really pitch with the Blue Jays all that much but he was a part of one of the biggest trades the club made between 2010-2020. He was part of the trade package during the 2014/2015 offseason that saw Josh Donaldson head to the Blue Jays and the left-hander was never able to find a spot on the Athletics’ active roster and was designated for assignment a year later during the 2015/2016 offseason.
He toiled around the Minor Leagues with a few different MLB teams and even had a quick stint in Independent ball and in the Nippon Baseball League before attempting a comeback with the Washington Nationals last year, appearing in 10 games and pitching to a 4.39 ERA through 26.2 innings. He re-signed with the Nats on a MiLB deal for the 2022 season but the club released him a short time later to allow him to pursue an opportunity with the Kia Tigers in the KBO.
So far this year, Nolin has compiled a 3.20 ERA through 16 starts and 90.0 innings with the Tigers, collecting 80 strikeouts compared to 20 walks while pitching out of the rotation. He owns a 5-7 record on the year and boasts a 1.267 WHIP on the season, sitting sixth on the team in terms of ERA.
