Nicolino (0-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits while striking out four across four innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Saturday. Nicolino was provided a 3-1 lead in the first inning, but gave up a pair of runs in the fourth frame to end his day after 64 pitches. For the fourth start in a row, he was pulled before reaching the fifth inning, so between the lack of usage and his 4.95 ERA, he doesn't offer much upside to fantasy owners. He'll make his next start Friday against the Brewers.
Nicolino allowed six runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk across three innings in a no-decision Monday against the Nationals. He struck out one. Nicolino allowed a two-run home run to Bryce Harper in the first inning and a solo shot to Anthony Rendon in the second before two unearned runs scored in the third following a pair of errors. He was inefficient in his first start since May 30, laboring through 61 pitches in the brief outing, and the four extra-base hits he allowed tied a season high. Albeit in a limited sample size, Nicolino owns an unimpressive 5.06 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP through four appearances this season -- numbers that could take another hit when he faces the Cubs on Saturday.
Nicolino (finger) was activated from the disabled list and is scheduled to start Monday against the Nationals. As expected, Nicolino will rejoin the Marlins' rotation after successfully getting though six innings of a rehab start with High-A Jupiter last Tuesday. The 25-year-old, who compiled a 4.15 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through three starts (13 innings) before landing on the DL, is scheduled for a tough two-start week (Nationals and Cubs) in his first week back from the disabled list.
Nicolino (finger) will be activated from the 10-day disabled list to start Monday's game against the Nationals, the Associated Press reports. Nicolino hit the disabled list earlier this month after suffering a bruised left index finger, but he was able to complete a rehab outing with High-A Jupiter last Tuesday without incident, covering six innings and allowing two runs on seven hits. Nicolino isn't expected to face any restrictions as he embarks on what shapes up as a two-start week, but with matchups against high-end offenses in the Nationals and Cubs, he's not an attractive streaming option.
Nicolino was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a blood blister on his left index finger, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. As expected, Nicolino was sent to the disabled list to clear room on the roster for Jeff Locke, who is scheduled to start against the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Nicolino will be eligible to return June 10, though it's unclear if he'll be ready to rejoin the rotation at that point. With the 25-year-old set to miss at least one start while on the disabled list, the Marlins could turn to Vance Worley or call-up Adam Conley from Triple-A New Orleans to take Nicolino's turn in the rotation.
