During today’s game between the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers, Twins announcer Jim Kaat made a comment that had fans doing a double take.
Kaat gave New York Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes the nickname “Nestor the Molester,” which e seemed to say as a compliment.
“Nestor the Molester. Nestor Cortes. He is fun to watch,” Kaat said with a laugh.
The 27-year-old Cortes’ ERA has dropped to just 1.50 after his stellar performance against the Angels. He has struck out 61 batters in his first 53 innings pitched this season. He’s 4-1 in nine starts.
