Marlins left-handed pitching prospect threw a complete game shutout for Double-A Jacksonville, scattering five hits while striking out four batters.
In addition to a 3.04 ERA and a 1.047 WHIP, Nicolino is holding opposing batters to a .244/.268/.372 line over his first 15 starts of the 2014 season. He sparkled with Low-A Lansing in 2012, as part of a rotation that included Aaron Sanchez, Noah Sydergaard, and Anthony DeSclafani, but took a step backward in 2013. He could be in line for a promotion to Triple-A New Orleans or Miami later this summer, and could be part of a great rotation in Miami going forward. Jun 22 - 10:12 AM

Making his first start in Grapefruit League play, Justin Nicolino allowed one run over five innings Thursday against the Cardinals.

The 21-year-old Nicolino was one of the prospects the Marlins picked up from the Jays in the Jose Reyes deal in November. He's expected to open this season in the Florida State League after going 10-4 with a 2.46 ERA in low-A ball last year.

Marlins acquired LHP Justin Nicolino from the Blue Jays in a 12-player trade.

Nicolino, who turns 21 later this month, has a 2.09 ERA and 194/34 K/BB ratio over 185 1/3 innings as a pro. The 2010 second-round pick is not as dominant as his numbers suggest, as he mostly sits in the high 80s-to-low 90s with his fastball, but he has an excellent changeup and a solid curveball. If the southpaw turns out to be a mid-rotation starter, the Marlins would likely be very pleased.
