Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels threw the second no-hitter of the 2012 MLB season last night. While it is not the first no-hitter in Angels history, it does bring to mind that there are only two teams in MLB history who still have never thrown a no-hitter.
One would first think of the recent expansion franchises, such as the Tampa Bay Rays, Arizona Diamondbacks, Florida Marlins or Colorado Rockies. All four of those franchises have thrown at least one no-hitter in their history.
I know many of you may be saying that the Washington Nationals have not had a pitcher throw a no-hitter. While no member of the team has thrown one since they moved to D.C., the Nationals were originally the Montreal Expos, therefore they are not an expansion team and the numbers accumulated in Montreal count toward their numbers.
That leaves us with just two teams who have never thrown a no-hitter in the history of their franchise. The New York Mets and San Diego Padres.
