Nicolino was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Nicolino will go back to New Orleans for the second time this season after allowing four runs over four innings of work Wednesday, picking up a loss to the Mets. He has allowed over four runs in each of his last four starts, and the team will see if he can work out his kinks down in Triple-A. During his time with the Marlins this season, the 24-year-old has posted a 5.57 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP during 64.2 innings of work. Nicolino will likely be back with the big league club before long.

He lasted just 59 pitches and yielded two homers Wednesday versus New York. Nicolino has a 5.57 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 64.2 innings.
Nicolino (2-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out one over five innings, but received no decision Friday at the Braves. After being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans for this start, Nicolino was staked to a three-run lead in the first inning before giving up a pair of runs in both the second and fifth innings to fall behind before being removed after throwing 72 pitches. Fortunately, the offense picked him up after his exit to take him off the hook for a potential loss. He's now failed to post a win in any of his last nine outings, and his ERA is at 5.34 on the year. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Mets.
