Nunez went 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI, a run scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Athletics.
Nunez got the start behind the plate and delivered good results at the plate, crossing home plate in the third following an RBI single from Raimel Tapia and later plating a run in the eighth with a sac fly that scored Ryan McMahon.

Nunez will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Athletics.
Though the lefty-hitting Nunez is back in the lineup, the fact that he was benched for the past three games -- including against a pair of right-handed pitchers -- suggests that he may have moved behind Elias Diaz on the depth chart at catcher. Nunez has been a decent source of power with five home runs, five doubles and two triples across 126 plate appearances, but a massive 40.5 percent strikeout rate has limited him to a .162 batting average.

Nunez will sit for the second straight game Friday against Oakland, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Nunez has handled the majority of the starts against righties this season while sitting against every lefty, but a day off against Frankie Montas on Friday means he's now sat twice in a row against right-handers. Whether he's dealing with a minor injury or has simply fallen out of favor is not yet clear. The latter would certainly make some sense, as he's gone 3-for-40 with 21 strikeouts in his last 15 games. Elias Diaz will make another start behind the plate in his absence.
Nunez is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rangers.
Elias Diaz will start behind the dish and bat eighth. Nunez has started the last three games, so he heads to the bench even with a righty (Mike Foltynewicz) on the hill for Texas. The lefty-hitting backstop has only started against right-handed pitchers this season.
Nunez isn't starting Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Nunez isn't starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Nunez went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the first game of Thursday's twin bill, and he'll retreat to the bench with left-hander Joey Lucchesi starting Game 2 for the Mets. Elias Diaz will start behind the dish and bat eighth.
Nunez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.
The Mets are expected to bring a southpaw (David Peterson) to the hill in Monday's series opener, which likely explains why the lefty-hitting Nunez is getting the day off. Elias Diaz will catch for the second time in five games while Nunez sits.
Nunez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

Nunez is not in the lineup Sunday at St. Louis, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Nunez went 1-for-5 with a double and three RBI Saturday and will take a seat Sunday after starting the previous three games. Elias Diaz will start behind the plate for the Rockies in the series finale.
Nunez is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Nunez went 1-for-3 with a run and two strikeouts during Game 1, and he unsurprisingly won't be starting both games of the twin bill. Elias Diaz will catch for Ryan Castellani during the nightcap.
Nunez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Nunez went 2-for-5 with a grand slam, a double and an additional run scored Saturday, but he'll take a seat for Sunday's series finale. Elias Diaz will work behind the plate for the Rockies.
