Vidal Nuno will start for the Mariners on Monday in place of Felix Hernandez.
The M's have decided to skip Hernandez's next start in order to keep him fresh for the remainder of the season, so Nuno will get another spot start. The 28-year-old hurler sports a 2.88 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 53/13 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings on the season. He could be worth a look as a streaming option against the Astros on Monday.

Vidal Nuno pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a no-decision versus the White Sox on Saturday.

Nuno has pitched well in two of his four starts since the Mariners thrust him into the rotation after two months of bullpen work. He'd be just fine as a fifth starter if left there the rest of the way, but he's not promised anything.
Aug 23 - 1:08 AM

Vidal Nuno lasted only 4 1/3 innings versus the Red Sox, allowing four runs in a no-decision as the Mariners won in 12 innings.

The Red Sox figured Nuno out in the third and fourth innings, drilling a pair of solo home runs. The other two runs came on sacrifice flies in the fourth and fifth innings. Nuno gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out two in the effort. It may be his final start of the season. He holds a 3.67 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and a 48/11 K/BB ratio over 48 2/3 innings. In the event the lefty gets another turn through the rotation, he'd face the White Sox at home.
Aug 16 - 6:14 PM

Vidal Nuno gave up only two runs in five innings but lost to the Orioles on Monday.

Adam Jones drilled a solo home run in the first inning, and Chris Davis broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth with an RBI single. Nuno allowed only five hits in total, walking none and striking out five. It remains to be seen if the lefty will get another start, but if he does, he'll face the Red Sox at Fenway Park. He has a 3.00 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 46/10 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings, spent mostly as a reliever.
Aug 11 - 1:02 AM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday that Vidal Nuno will receive at least one more start.

Nuno allowed three runs over 3 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Tuesday in what was his first start in the majors this season after being limited to bullpen duty. He'll get another shot next week versus the Orioles but isn't guaranteed any more starts after that.
Aug 5 - 1:26 PM

Vidal Nuno gave up three runs over 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Nuno served up two homers among his five hits allowed, and he also walked two. The start was Nuno's first of the season after making 14 starts last year. The lefty has a 2.88 ERA and 1.16 WHIP overall, and he'll stay in the rotation with J.A. Happ gone. Nuno will take his next turn Monday against the Orioles.
Aug 5 - 1:43 AM

Vidal Nuno will start on Tuesday in Colorado.

He's taking J.A. Happ's spot in the rotation. Nuno boasts a 2.02 ERA and 38/8 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 relief innings between the D'Backs and Mariners this season. The downside is that he hasn't thrown more than 2 2/3 innings in any appearance this month, so he'll be pretty limited from a pitch count perspective on Thursday.
Aug 2 - 12:34 PM

Mariners recalled LHP Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Tacoma.

Nuno had a 2.53 ERA and 10/1 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings prior to being sent down over the weekend. He didn't deserve to be optioned in the first place, but Charlie Furbush's trip to the DL cleared the way for him to return.
Jul 9 - 5:32 PM

Mariners optioned LHP Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Tacoma.

The 27-year-old left-hander pitched very well out of the Mariners bullpen, registering a 2.53 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 10/1 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings. It's unclear exactly why he's being sent out though, unless they prefer to stretch him back out as a starter at Triple-A.
Jul 4 - 9:16 AM

Mariners acquired LHP Vidal Nuno and OF Mark Trumbo from the Diamondbacks for C Welington Castillo, RHP Dominic Leone, INF Jack Reinheimer and OF Gabby Guerrero.

Nuno has appeared in just three games with the Diamondbacks this season but posted a 3.76 ERA in 14 starts down the stretch in 2014. It's unclear in what role the Mariners foresee using the southpaw, but he should provide some rotation depth at the least.
Jun 3 - 7:38 PM

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Reno.

Nuno has posted a decent 3.38 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 41/8 K/BB ratio across 50 2/3 innings (eight starts) this season at the Triple-A level. He should do well in a long relief role with the big-league Diamondbacks.
May 26 - 4:38 PM

Diamondbacks optioned LHP Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Reno.

Nuno's being sent down to make way for Archie Bradley, who is set to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday. He'll return to a nice set of Triple-A numbers, as he had posted a 3.23 ERA and a 37/5 K/BB ratio over 39 innings pitching in the Reno rotation.
May 15 - 10:57 PM

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Reno.

Nuno posted a nice 3.23 ERA and 37/5 K/BB ratio over 39 innings out of Reno's rotation. He'll work in long relief for the D'Backs for now.
May 11 - 5:08 PM

Diamondbacks optioned LHPs Vidal Nuno and Robbie Ray to Triple-A Reno, RHP Enrique Burgos to Double-A Mobile.

Nuno and Ray were both competing for possible rotation spots. In 14 starts for the Diamondbacks last season, Nuno posted a 3.76 ERA. Both players could potentially see the majors at some point this season. Burgos is a hard-thrower and will continue to develop in the minors.
Apr 4 - 7:35 PM

Vidal Nuno was scratched from his scheduled start against the Cubs in Cactus League action on Saturday.

No reason has been given for the late scratch yet. The 27-year-old southpaw lost out on his bid for a spot in the team's starting rotation, but is still competing for a long reliever role in the bullpen.
