Nicasio was experiencing back tightness during spring training, but his status as the starting pitcher for Monday's intrasquad contest signals that he's recovered. Although he's on the team's 60-man roster, he's unlikely to play a big role in the majors this year. The 33-year-old made 47 appearances for the Phillies last season, logging a 4.75 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 47.1 innings.
