Nomo Attempting Return
Hideo "The Human Tornado" Nomo pitched a scoreless frame last night for Caracas of the Venezuelan Winter League. He believes that he will return to the Majors next season at 39 years of age. Coming off of elbow surgery, Rotoworld believes that he is quite a long shot to make a starting-rotation out of spring training. In his rookie year of 1995, Nomo pitched to an astonishing 13-6 record with a 2.54 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He than followed that with another excellent year (16-11 3.20) but than continued his down fall from there. Nomo than returned to the Dodgers in 2002 and came back to form, pitching 220.1 innings surrending only a 3.39 ERA. He has not been a quality major-leaguer since that 2003 season though.
