RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Hideo Nomo.
Nomo couldn't stick with the Devil Rays, and the Yankees tried Darrell May and Tim Redding as emergency starters instead of the former All-Star from Japan. That should tell you everything you need to know about what Nomo's got left.
It seems like all those innings in Japan and the U.S. have finally caught up with the 36-year-old Nomo. His K/9IP and K/BB ratio dropped for the third straight year and he also missed significant time in 2004 with two stints on the DL because of lingering problems from rotator cuff surgery after the 2003 season. He's not a wise investment for the upcoming season.
Nomo battled his way to 16 wins and 177 strikeouts in over 200 innings. After the Kevin Brown trade, Nomo is the Dodgers' ace and should be up to the task. But at 35, look for his performance to slip a little from his 2003 season.
Nomo's big strikeout numbers have always been there but his propensity to give up the long ball is countered by the spacious confines of Dodger Stadium. Could continue to be the best starter in the rotation for 2003.
