Sean Nolin will compete for a rotation spot next season.
Due to the question marks outside of Sonny Gray and Rich Hill for the Oakland rotation, Sean Nolin is a prospect worth monitoring for the upcoming season. Nolin was a part of the Josh Donaldson trade from Toronto. He was 2-2 at Triple-A in 2015 with a 2.66 ERA in 47 1/3 innings pitched. Nolin also made six starts with Oakland last year with a 1-2 record and a 5.28 ERA. But being left-handed and in a pitchers park will give Nolin a chance to improve in 2016. Analysis: Greg Jewett
