Rockies' Mike Nikorak: Returns to mound for final month of season
Nikorak (elbow) pitched in the final month of the season with short-season Boise, compiling a 4.32 ERA across 8.1 innings.
Nikorak's clean bill of health allowed him to finally return to game action after missing the entire 2017 campaign due to Tommy John surgery. The results weren't overly encouraging, however, as he actually walked more batters in that span (11) than he struck out (10). Regardless, his health was the main concern this season. Now that his elbow is back to full strength, he'll focus on shoring up his performance heading into the 2019 campaign, when he figures to get his first shot with a full-season club.
