Shakeup: Nolasco Sent to AAA

The Marlins made their loudest move of the year by shipping the struggling Ricky Nolasco to AAA to get his act together. Nolasco was the top of the rotation, pitching on opening day after a stellar 15-win season. At 2-5 with an ERA over 9.00, Nolasco desperately needs to figure out his fastball and confidence. Sean West was called up from AA and will start on Saturday night. Dave Davidson, who struggled in one terrible inning tonight was DFA-ed and AA righty Chris Leroux was called up to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen.
