Marlins' Justin Nicolino: In rotation mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolino is competing for one of the Marlins' final three rotation spots in spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Nicolino will join a group of around 10 other pitchers auditioning for a spot in the Marlins' rotation, which currently only has two Opening Day locks in Dan Straily and Jose Urena. In 20 appearances for Miami in 2017, which included eight starts, the 26-year-old notched a lackluster 5.06 ERA and 26:20 K:BB across 48 innings. He posted a more respectable 3.87 ERA in 12 starts (79 innings) with Triple-A New Orleans, though that came with a similarly poor 51:24 K:BB. While an impressive spring could see Nicolino break camp in the rotation, he'll primarily be used to eat innings and doesn't figure to hold any significant fantasy value in 2018.

Marlins' Justin Nicolino: Used in long relief Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolino came on in relief during Monday's 11-2 loss to the Nationals, tossing 2.1 innings and giving up three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one batter.

The Marlins haven't officially named their starters for all seven of their games this week, but the fact that Nicolino was used out of the bullpen Monday suggests he won't be in line to make what would have been his next turn in the rotation Thursday against the Phillies. Entering play Monday, Nicolino had carried a middling 5.45 ERA and 5.2 K/9 rate over 33 innings on the season, and he did little in long relief in the series opener with Washington to justify another look in a starting role later in the week. Instead, it appears that Odrisamer Despagine, who tossed six innings of one-run ball when a spot starter was needed last Saturday against the Padres, is now the leading candidate to fill the opening in the rotation for Thursday.

Marlins' Justin Nicolino: Departs early after six-run bombardment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolino (2-2) lasted only 2.1 innings in Wednesday's 9-0 loss to the Phillies, giving up six runs on eight hits and a pair of walks.

Well, that was ugly. Injuries and demotions have made Nicolino only an occasional part of Miami's rotation this year, and this outing certainly won't help his case for clinging to a spot. With marginal stuff, a brutal strikeout rate (5.2 K/9), and a propensity for allowing both walks and homers, Nicolino offers little to no intrigue in the fantasy community.

Marlins' Justin Nicolino: Handcuffs Mets on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolino (2-1) allowed one run on six hits over five innings Friday to pick up the win in a 3-1 victory over the Mets. He struck out one.

The lefty was pulled after throwing only 74 pitches (55 strikes), but still lasted long enough to record his second straight win since being called back up to the majors. Nicolino will take a 4.11 ERA into his next outing Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Marlins' Justin Nicolino: Picks up first win of season Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolino (1-1) allowed two runs, one of which was earned, on six hits and four walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings to earn the victory Saturday against the Rockies.

Nicolino struggled with control, but left the contest with a two-run lead, helping him earn his first victory of the season. He was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans for this start, and although he's already had two strong outings on the season, he presents a significant amount of risk to fantasy managers. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mets.
