Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Back from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (groin) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Nicasio wound up missing slightly longer than the minimum with a left groin strain. He recorded an unimpressive 5.24 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 34.1 innings prior to suffering the injury. Yacksel Rios was optioned in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left groin strain, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Nicasio has been nursing the injury over the last few days and will head to the injured list after struggling through one-third of an inning Wednesday. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but the 32-year-old will be eligible to be activated shortly after the All-Star break.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Nursing groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio has a left groin injury and could be headed to the injured list, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Nicasio has apparently been dealing with the injury for a few days but attempted to pitch through the issue, and he struggled Wednesday by giving up three runs on four hits while recording one out. The 32-year-old will be re-evaluated Thursday to determine whether an IL stint is necessary.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Takes loss in save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (0-2) blew the save and was handed the loss after allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning Tuesday against the Cubs.

Nicasio entered with a 2-1 lead but had runners on second and third before he was able to record an out. The 32-year-old had the chance to secure saves on back-to-back days in the Windy City, but couldn't close the deal. The two save chances were Nicasio's first two of the season. He now has a 4.09 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 20:11 K:BB through 22 innings.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Picks up extra-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio allowed a hit in two-thirds of an inning to record his first save of the season in Monday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

Seranthony Dominguez blew the lead in the eighth inning and Hector Neris worked a scoreless ninth with the game tied, leaving Adam Morgan and Nicasio to close things out after J.T. Realmuto launched a solo shot in the top of the 10th. The veteran right-hander hasn't given up an earned run since April 19, and the stretch of success has moved him into a more high-leverage role in Gabe Kapler's bullpen -- he notched his second hold of the season Sunday. Nicasio now sports a 3.32 ERA and 20:9 K:BB through 21.2 innings on the season.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Can't stem tide in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio pitched two innings in Wednesday's 15-1 loss to the Nationals, allowing a pair of runs on four hits and a walk while striking out one.

It was certainly a poor outing, but Nicasio was far from the only Phillies pitcher to get knocked around. On the whole, he's been effective this season, as he hadn't allowed a run in any of his first three appearances, but his 4:3 K:BB isn't a particularly encouraging sign.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Roster spot appears safe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio's spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster appears safe after Victor Arano and Yacksel Rios were optioned Saturday.

The Phillies have a deep bullpen, but Nicasio always seemed likely to make the team after being acquired from Seattle in December. The veteran stumbled to a 6.00 ERA last season, but his 2.99 FIP told a different story, and he's had a FIP under 3.00 for three of the last four years. He may be a pitcher whose peripherals always overrate him, as his ERA is 0.73 runs higher than his FIP over the course of his eight-year major-league career, but he should at least provide adequate middle-relief innings for the Phillies this season.

Phillies' Juan Nicasio: Traded to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) was traded from Seattle to Philadelphia along with Jean Segura for Carlos Santana and J.P. Crawford on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Nicasio battled a knee injury throughout 2018 and struggled to a 6.00 ERA in 42 innings, but his underlying numbers are quite promising and he's expected to be good to go in 2019 following a cleanup procedure. His 2.99 FIP was a near match for the 2.98 FIP he posted in 2017, and he walked an incredibly low 2.7 percent of batters while striking out a career-high 29.0 percent. If he experiences positive regression back towards his peripherals in 2019, he could be in contention for a high-leverage role in a Phillies bullpen which lacks an established hierarchy, though he's unlikely to have an inside shot on the closer role.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Expected to be ready for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio is in the early stages of recovering from a clean-up procedure on his knee and is expected to be ready for spring training, Greg Johns of reports.

The veteran reliever battled bone chips and swelling in his right knee on two separate occasions this season, finally opting for surgery to address the issue in late August. Nicasio flashed excellent strikeout upside and control in 2018 on his way to a 53:5 K:BB, but a trio of relief outings in which he allowed at least three earned runs helped lead to a 6.00 ERA.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

Nicasio is scheduled to undergo season-ending knee surgery in the coming days. This move frees up a spot on the team's 40-man roster for Dan Altavilla, who was activated from the 60-day DL in a corresponding move.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Opts for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on his right knee in the upcoming days, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Per Corey Brock of The Athletic Seattle, Nicasio's surgery is characterized as a cleanup procedure to address inflammation in his knee, so he should make a full recovery by the time spring training opens. The 31-year-old had been sidelined since Aug. 2 due to the latest setback with his knee, which also resulted in a DL stint in June. Nicasio will finish up his first season in Seattle with 19 holds and a 6.00 ERA (3.03 FIP), 1.38 WHIP and 53:5 K:BB across 42 frames.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Still unsure of path forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) remains unsure of whether he'll have surgery to repair bone chips and inflammation in his right knee or wait until after the season for the procedure, Greg Johns of reports.

Nicasio went for a second opinion Monday, but it apparently did little to help him reach a consensus on his course of action. Given that the knee issues have been a near season-long problem, the veteran may ultimately opt to get the matter rectified as soon as possible. For his part, manager Scott Servais is hopeful that he can have Nicasio available to him during the stretch run, emphasizing that expanded September rosters would allow him to use the right-hander more judiciously and therefore limit the strain on his knee.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Getting second opinion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) was slated to get a second opinion on his inflamed right knee Monday, Greg Johns of reports.

Nicasio hit the disabled list Aug. 3 with a recurrence of the knee swelling he'd experienced earlier in the season, and he's been without a timetable for return since. The veteran right-hander has logged 42 innings across 46 appearances so far this season in a setup role in front of closer Edwin Diaz, compiling 19 holds but also taking six losses and blowing six leads along the way. More information on Nicasio's status is likely to be available in the coming days, with the possibility that he's officially shut down for the rest of the season still in play.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: No firm timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee), who went on the disabled list Friday, doesn't have a firm timetable for his return, Greg Johns of reports. "I don't know," manager Scott Servais said of a potential return. "Juan is frustrated. He hasn't felt good and wants to make it right. I certainly think he could come back and impact this year down the stretch, but I don't know."

Servais went as far as speculating that Nicasio may not return during the regular season. The veteran reliever's right knee has been problematic prior to his current DL stint, as it put him on the shelf for 10 days back in June. Nicasio's first Seattle season has been somewhat of a mixed bag, as he's managed to generate an unlikely combination of a 6.00 ERA and 53:5 K:BB over 46 appearances.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Heads to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday due to right knee inflammation, Greg Johns of reports.

It's unclear as to when Nicasio started to feel symptoms, but he'll move to the shelf for at least 10 days. He dealt with a similar issue earlier in the year, but managed to return from the disabled list after missing the minimum. The 31-year-old has accrued a 6.00 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 42 innings as a reliever in 2018. Chasen Bradford was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Takes fifth loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (1-5) allowed an earned run on one hit -- a game-winning solo home run -- in an extra-inning loss to the Angels on Friday. He also recorded a strikeout.

Nicasio saw Kole Calhoun, the first batter he faced in the home half of the 10th, tag him for a 401-foot solo shot to right center that ended the contest. It marked the fourth time in eight July appearances that Nicasio has given up an earned run, which has led to a 5.14 ERA across seven innings during the month. The veteran has also been charged with a pair of blown saves in addition to Friday's loss over that stretch, so he's been a bit of a roller coaster for both manager Scott Servais and his fantasy owners. Despite his inconsistencies, Nicasio continues to see plenty of work, as his 40 innings this season rank behind only closer Edwin Diaz (51 innings) among Seattle's full-time relievers.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Locks down save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio picked up his first save of 2018, needing just seven pitches in a perfect 10th inning in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Orioles.

Edwin Diaz had picked up a save in each of the last three days, so he wasn't available for Thursday's contest. Nicasio is now 1-for-5 in save opportunities this season and they should continue coming few and far between with Diaz's dominance. The 31-year-old owns an ugly 6.19 ERA despite a very strong 40:3 K:BB in 32 innings.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Impressive in return from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio, who was activated from the disabled list Monday, notched his 15th hold by firing a scoreless inning in which he recorded a strikeout during a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old had dealt with some swelling in his knee recently, prompting the 10-day DL stay. Wednesday marked his first appearance since being activated, and Nicasio looked much sharper than he did his last time on the mound. That outing came June 6 against the Astros and apparently transpired at the height of Nicasio's knee problems, as he was officially sidelined the following day. That stumble notwithstanding, Nicasio had been in the midst of one of his best stretches of pitching of the season at the time of his injury, as he'd generated eight consecutive scoreless efforts before failing to record an out against the four Houston batters he faced.

June 18, 2018 12:16 PM
Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) was activated from the disabled list Monday.

Nicasio will end up spending the minimum amount of time on the disabled list. Prior to his injury, Nicasio had recorded a 5.34 ERA in 28.2 innings, though his underlying numbers indicated that he was actually pitching quite well. His strikeout rate had spiked up to an impressive 31.4 percent, while his walk rate remained an incredibly low 1.7 percent. Those numbers result in a very solid 2.53 FIP, indicating that the veteran should be able to capably fill his setup role if he keeps pitching the way he'd already been pitching.

Mariners' Juan Nicasio: Slated to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (knee) will travel with the Mariners to New York and will be activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees, Greg Johns of reports.

The report confirms what had been the expected next step for Nicasio after he faced hitters in live batting practice and took part in fielding drills Saturday without incident. Expect the Mariners to plug Nicasio back into a high-leverage role out of the bullpen right away, as his 37:2 K:BB and 2.64 FIP over 28.2 innings this season suggest he's one of Seattle's top relievers, even if his 5.34 ERA doesn't.
