Vidal Nuno surrendered two earned runs in five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Twins.
Nuno struck out six batters and the Minnesota offense managed only three hits, but four walks did him in. The 27-year-old left-hander will finish 0-7 in 14 starts for the Diamondbacks, though that record has more to do with the pitiful roster in Arizona. Nuno actually pitched pretty well after the trade from New York, posting a 3.76 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 69/20 K/BB ratio in 83 2/3 frames for the Snakes. Wed, Sep 24, 2014 04:59:00 PM

Vidal Nuno lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs, in a no-decision against the Rockies on Thursday.

Nuno scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out seven, a nice bounce-back effort after taking a beating against the Padres his last time out. He's pitched well over his last seven starts, sporting a 3.57 ERA. Nuno will take his season-wide 4.60 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 123/42 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's road start against the Twins.

Vidal Nuno tossed eight innings of one-run ball Saturday in a tough-luck loss to the Rockies.

Nuno was fantastic, yielding only two hits and zero walks while striking out seven. One of those hits, however, was a Matt McBride solo home run. And the Arizona offense didn't offer any sort of support. Nuno has a stellar 3.23 ERA since joining the Snakes. He'll hope for a little more assistance next week in San Diego.

Vidal Nuno held the Padres to two earned runs in 7 1/3 innings in Saturday's 5-2 victory for Arizona.

Nuno was working on a shutout until the top of the eighth inning, when he loaded the bases on a hit-by-pitch, a one-out single, and a walk. The Padres then scored their only two runs of the evening on a Yangervis Solarte bases-loaded single against reliever Oliver Perez, with both tallies being charged to Nuno.

Vidal Nuno got a no-decision after allowing two runs in seven innings in Monday's 11-inning loss to the Nationals.

Nuno had shut the Nationals out through six innings, but Wilson Ramos hit a two-run home run off of him in the seventh to take the lefty from a potential win to a potential loss. The D'Backs were able to bounce back several times before relenting in extras. Nuno gave up five hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts. In the process, he lowered his ERA to 3.72. He'll take on the Padres at home on Saturday next.

Vidal Nuno struck out six while allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Indians in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

Nuno held the Indians scoreless until the sixth inning, when Michael Brantley delivered a two-run single for the only runs against the left-hander. Nuno allowed six hits without walking a batter in the outing. He remains 0-3 but owns a passable 3.92 ERA through seven starts as a member of the Diamondbacks. He'll continue searching for his first win in the NL when he takes on the Nationals on Monday.

Vidal Nuno was whipped for five runs on seven hits over just four innings Thursday in a 5-2 loss against the Royals.

He struck out only one and walked zero in his first career outing against the Royals. Arizona hasn't won any of the six starts made by the former Yankee, acquired for Brandon McCarthy. Nuno hasn't necessarily been terrible in those outings -- posting a 4.05 ERA -- but he remains a fringy NL-only option. Nuno stays in the American League Central the next time around when he travels to Cleveland on Wednesday.

Vidal Nuno was denied a win after giving up just one run and three hits in six innings Friday against the Pirates.

Nuno left with a 4-1 lead, but that was blown by Randall Delgado in the seventh. As a result, Nuno remains winless in five starts for the Diamondbacks, even though he has a 3.07 ERA during that span.

Vidal Nuno was charged with four runs -- three earned -- on four hits and three walks over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Nuno was taken deep by Ryan Howard in the first inning -- the 19th longball he's surrendered this season -- but was able to settle down and pitch pretty well the rest of the way. He struck out five Phillies hitters. The former Yankee is winless in four starts for the D'Backs but holds a decent 3.86 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He'll get the Pirates next weekend.

Vidal Nuno yielded three runs on seven hits over just 4 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Tigers.

Nuno was lucky it wasn't worse. He gave up two homers, accounting for all three runs on his ledger, but managed to strand runners in every inning except the first (reliever Randall Delgado cleaned up Nuno's two-runner mess in the fifth inning). The newly-acquired left-hander posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees, and has looked much the same in three starts in the desert, though he has a fluky 3.78 ERA to show for it. The 26-year-old Nuno takes the mound in Philadelphia this weekend.

Vidal Nuno allowed four runs over five innings in a loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Nuno held the Marlins scoreless over seven innings in his first start with the Diamondbacks, but he was less effective in his second. The lefty danced around trouble until the fifth inning, when he served up a grand slam to Buster Posey. Nuno walked one and struck out four on the day. He's got a 5.10 ERA and 1.37 WHIP between the Yankees and Diamondbacks, and despite likely being better in the National League, he's still not a factor outside of deep NL-only leagues.

Vidal Nuno will start for the Diamondbacks on Sunday in place of Chase Anderson.

Anderson is being skipped due to the fact that the Diamondbacks want to keep his innings down this season. Nuno hurled seven shutout innings against the Marlins in his D'Backs debut earlier in the week, and is worth a look in deeper mixed and NL-only formats.

In his spectacular Diamondbacks debut, Vidal Nuno tossed seven shutout innings Tuesday against the Marlins.

He also scored Arizona's only run, coming around on Aaron Hill's fifth inning single. Acquired from the Yankees in exchange for Brandon McCarthy and cash over the weekend, Nuno dazzled the Arizona faithful in his first outing sporting Sedona red and Sonoran sand. He would have won if Addison Reed hadn't blown a save. The 26-year-old posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees, but we think he'll find pitching in the National League a little easier. Overall, Nuno finishes the first half 2-5 with a 4.98 ERA.

Diamondbacks acquired LHP Vidal Nuno from the Yankees in exchange for RHP Brandon McCarthy and cash.

Nuno, 26, has posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees. He's under team control for a while and has put up some nice numbers in the minors, but the left-hander isn't more than a back-end starter. Nuno will make his Diamondbacks debut on Tuesday versus the Marlins.
Sun, Jul 6, 2014 11:45:00 AM

Vidal Nuno twirled 5 2/3 scoreless innings in Friday's victory over the Red Sox, scattering a pair of hits and walking two while punching out five.

In what has been an extremely disappointing season for Nuno, Friday was one major step in the right direction. He'll look to further improve upon an unsightly 5.42 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he takes on the Rays at home on Wednesday.
