Pirates' Juan Nicasio: Decent start to 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio has allowed two runs and seven hits over 5.2 innings to start the season.

Nicasio has pitched only one clean inning this season, but has limited the damage along the way. Still, the 30-year-old figures to be an important piece of Pittsburgh's bullpen in 2017. After moving to the bullpen last season, Nicasio went 5-2 with a 3.88 ERA, while striking out 75 batters in 55.2 innings.

Pirates' Juan Nicasio: Set to start season as reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although the Pirates don't expect to use Nicasio as a closer, he will pitch in high-leverage situations. "I like the role we had him in last year. He flourished in it," manager Clint Hurdle told the team's website. "There were games where he could give late-inning leverage, depending on the use of the other guys. There were days he came in and stopped the biggest situation of the game in the sixth inning, then was able to add another inning to it."

He bombed as a starter in early 2016 but then pitched well out of the bullpen, compiling a 2.96 ERA with 76 strikeouts in 53.2 innings after June 26. Hurdle likened Nicasio's usage to that of Cleveland's Andrew Miller. "It was actually a similar situation to how you saw the two men [Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman] get used in the postseason," Hurdle noted. "We had a guy who was doing it for us." It will take injuries to Tony Watson, Daniel Hudson and Felipe Rivero for Nicasio to be considered for saves.

Pirates' Juan Nicasio: Avoids arbitration with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio and the Pirates avoided arbitration and agreed to a $3.65 million deal on Friday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The Pirates gave Nicasio a try in the rotation in 2016, hoping he could be another bargain-bin reclamation project, before eventually moving him back into the bullpen. While he might not be a real starter, he put up a 2.96 ERA after his return to the bullpen, so he seems to be at least an effective reliever.

Pirates' Juan Nicasio: Bullpen outings a relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio earned his fifth hold Wednesday, striking out one batter in a scoreless relief inning.

Nicasio has compiled a 2.70 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 71:17 K:BB in 50 innings since the team sent him to the bullpen. The right-hander has become one of the team's most reliable relievers, flashing closer's stuff, though Tony Watson is not in jeopardy of losing his job. Nicasio has already set a major league record with at least one strikeout in his last 31 relief appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nicasio struck out two batters in two scoreless innings Saturday, earning the win to improve to 10-6. He did not walk a batter.
