Marlins optioned LHP Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans.

Nicolino yielded three runs on eight hits over six innings Sunday in a loss to the lowly Padres. He has a 5.48 ERA in 70 2/3 innings this season with Miami.
Aug 29 - 3:51 PM

Justin Nicolino turned in a quality start in Sunday's loss to the Padres, yielding three runs on eight hits over six innings.

Filling in for Andrew Cashner (blister), Nicolino walked one and failed to strike out a batter over his six innings of work. He kept the scoreboard clean and clear of runs until the fourth inning, when Ryan Schimpf burned him for an RBI triple and Luis Sardinas an RBI double. In 13 starts covering 70 2/3 innings, the 24-year-old southpaw has pitched to a 5.48 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 30/17 K/BB ratio. If Cashner can't make his next turn in the rotation, Nicolino would likely start in his place once more.

Marlins recalled LHP Justin Nicolino from Triple-A New Orleans.

He's starting Sunday against the Padres in place of Andrew Cashner (blister). Depending on how Cashner recovers from his blister, it's possible Nicolino will be needed for more than one start.
Aug 28 - 8:26 AM

The Marlins will call up left-hander Justin Nicolino to start Sunday against the Padres.

He'll start in place of Andrew Cashner, who was scratched due to a blister. Nicolino owns a rough 5.57 ERA over 12 starts with the Marlins this season and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Aug 27 - 10:43 PM

Marlins optioned LHP Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans.

The Marlins don't need a fifth starter for a while, so Nicolino will get some work in at New Orleans. He could be back when the No. 5 spot comes up, although the Marlins are reportedly on the lookout for rotation help.
Jul 8 - 2:20 PM

Justin Nicolino yielded four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Friday.

Nicolino was handed an early 3-0 lead, but he squandered it, eventually giving up a go-ahead homer to Chase d’Arnaud in the fifth. The southpaw struck out just one batter and hasn’t completed six innings in a start since way back on May 8. With a 5.34 ERA and his inability to miss bats, he’s not a fantasy option.
Jul 2 - 12:10 AM

Marlins recalled LHP Justin Nicolino from Triple-A New Orleans.

He'll start on Friday versus the Braves. Nicolino holds a 5.17 ERA over 10 starts this season and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Jul 1 - 4:06 PM

The Marlins will recall Justin Nicolino to start on Friday against the Braves.

The Marlins swapped Nicolino out for Paul Clemens earlier this month, but Clemens was lost on waivers so Nicolino will get another shot. The soft-tossing lefty holds a 5.17 ERA over 10 starts this season.
Jul 1 - 11:27 AM

Marlins optioned LHP Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans.

Nicolino has posted a 5.17 ERA over 10 starts for the Marlins this season. Paul Clemens has assumed his spot on the roster and will presumably take his rotation spot, as well.
Jun 19 - 10:58 AM

Justin Nicolino struggled in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Nicolino managed just three strikeouts on the afternoon and surrendered runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings. The 24-year-old southpaw will carry a rough 5.17 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into a home start against the Rockies next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 15 - 7:22 PM

Justin Nicolino gave up five runs and 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Nicolino, who had fanned just 41 batters in 20 major league starts, struck out six tonight, though that didn't stop him from giving up way too many hits. The no-decision left him 2-3 with a 4.76 ERA in nine starts this year. There's just no fantasy upside here.
Jun 11 - 1:10 AM

Justin Nicolino gave up two earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Mets.

New York scored two runs in the top of the eighth and two more in the ninth to win the game 6-4. It could have been much worse for Nicolino, who flirted with trouble all afternoon while yielding nine hits and a walk over his five-plus frames. He stands 2-3 with a 4.37 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 18/13 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings (eight starts) this season.
Jun 4 - 7:54 PM

Justin Nicolino dropped to 2-3 after giving up three runs in five innings Monday against the Pirates.

Nicolino is just treading water since his addition to the Marlins rotation, amassing a 4.50 ERA and a 16/12 K/BB ratio in 40 innings. He can probably maintain his current pace with his ability to generate grounders, but his ceiling is awfully limited.
May 30 - 10:03 PM

Justin Nicolino managed to strike out six in just 5 2/3 frames, but surrendered three earned runs on eight hits against the Rays on Wednesday night.

For a guy who only struck out a half-dozen batters in his previous 29 1/3 innings this year, Wednesday’s six-strikeout performance felt like it was from another world. He pushed his K/BB even at 12/12, which is cause for minor celebration. Nicolino was in line for the win before he served up a two-run homer to Logan Morrison, which chased him from the game with it tied at three-apiece. Nicolino has a 4.37 ERA and is safely left on the waiver wire, aside from NL-only leagues.
