Nolasco regaining velocity

Ricky is looking better.

Some life has returned to Ricky Nolasco's fastball.
Pitching for the Peoria Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League, Nolasco's fastball was clocked recently in the mid 90s, according to his agent, Matt Sosnick.

Nolasco, one of four Florida rookies to reach double-digits in wins in 2006, had an injury-interrupted '07. Twice he went on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow, and he finished up the season pitching at Triple-A Albuquerque.

Honestly, given the abuse he was put through and the resulting physical troubles it caused, I wouldn't be surprised if he eventually ended up being Alabama bound.

I hope it doesn't happen for his sake and the team's, but it is a possibility.
