Nolin was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the sixth round of the 2010 MLB Entry Draft out of San Jacinto Junior College.[1] He had originally been selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the fiftieth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft, and by the Seattle Mariners in the forty-eighth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign either time.[2]

He was optioned back to Double-A New Hampshire following the 10–6 loss.[6] Nolin was ranked as the number 5 prospect in the Blue Jays organization on July 26, 2013, when the revised Top 100 Prospects list was released.[7] Nolin was promoted to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on August 17.[8] Nolin was optioned to the Buffalo Bisons on March 16, 2014. He posted a 4–7 record in the minors in 2014, with an ERA of 3.43 and 88 strikeouts over 97 innings pitched.[9]
