Making a spot start in place of Wade Miley, Vidal Nuno gave up three runs in 1 2/3 innings Monday against the Red Sox.
There are worse fifth starters around than Nuno, but the Orioles were looking at him as a reliever when they picked him up from the Dodgers last month. It's uncertain whether he'll be on the Opening Day roster; the fact that he has options remaining, even at age 29, works against him. Mar 20 - 4:40 PM

Vidal Nuno pitched a pair of scoreless innings in relief Monday against the Yankees.

Nuno was acquired from the Dodgers eight days ago, making that four trades in three years for the swingman. Even though he's 29, he still has options remaining, opening up the possibility that the Orioles could send him down initially. He should be one of their top seven relievers, though, and he might log some rotation time before the season is done.

Orioles acquired LHP Vidal Nuno from the Dodgers for RHP Ryan Moseley.

The 29-year-old southpaw has now been traded four times in the past three years. Nuno compiled a 3.53 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 7.8 K/9 over 58 2/3 innings primarily out of the bullpen for the Mariners in 2016. He'll add valuable depth to the Orioles with his ability to both start and pitch effectively out of the bullpen.

Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are closing in on deal to acquire Vidal Nuno from the Dodgers.

Minor league right-hander Ryan Moseley would head back to the Dodgers in the reported deal. Given the current state of the O's starting pitching depth, Nuno could challenge for a spot in the Opening Day rotation or serve as a valuable cog in a long-relief role.
Feb 19 - 5:16 PM

Dodgers and LHP Vidal Nuno avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.125 million contract.

Nuno, who was acquired from the Mariners for Carlos Ruiz back in November, was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. The 29-year-old posted a 3.53 ERA and 51/11 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings last season and figures to pitch in middle relief for Los Angeles.

Dodgers acquired LHP Vidal Nuno from the Mariners for C Carlos Ruiz.

Nuno got off to a tremendous start this past season in Seattle, but he was very average over the final three months and finished with a 3.53 ERA in 58 2/3 total innings. The 29-year-old left-hander will enter Dodgers camp next spring in a mid-relief role.

Vidal Nuno gave up four runs in 3 1/3 innings Thursday in his emergency start against the Tigers.

Nuno was called into service after Adrian Sampson hurt his elbow while warming up. It was his first start after 26 relief appearances with a 1.95 ERA. Even though there's a need in the rotation, the Mariners would likely prefer to leave him in the bullpen from here.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Saturday that Vidal Nuno will enter spring camp as a reliever.

While he has started in the past and has the strength to get through an entire lineup, the M's feel his strength is against left-handed hitters. Given the depth of the M's rotation, Nuno's best chance of cracking the Opening Day roster is as a situational reliever.

Vidal Nuno took a no-decision in his final start of the season, yielding two runs over six innings as the Mariners eked out a win over the Athletics on Sunday.

Nuno gave up a sacrifice fly and a solo home run in the third inning to account ofr the damage. Overall, he allowed six hits and a walk while striking out four. The lefty closes the book on his season with a 4.10 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and an 81/22 K/BB ratio over 89 innings.

Vidal Nuno went five innings and gave up three runs, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Nuno allowed a run in the first inning on a ground out, then held serve until the fifth, when Marwin Gonzalez hit a solo home run and George Springer hit an RBI double. Overall, he gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out five. Nuno, across nine starts and 22 relief appearances, has a 4.19 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 58/16 K/BB ratio over 68 2/3 innings.

Vidal Nuno will start Tuesday against the Astros.

The Mariners moved him up a day to give James Paxton more time to recover from a torn fingernail. Since holding the Rangers to one hit in seven shutout innings on September 9, Nuno is 0-2 with a 9.72 ERA.

Vidal Nuno poured in a strong start in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Rangers, striking out 10 while allowing one hit and no runs over seven innings.

Vidal Nuno, strikeout artist? This is apparently a thing, now. He entered the game having struck out just 36 over 48 1/3 innings, but the Rangers couldn't put bat on ball in Wednesday's contest. Pitching mostly out of the bullpen, Nuno's the owner of a 3.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. Despite the Felix Hernandez-esque line, he'll likely return to the bullpen after this outing.

Vidal Nuno will make another spot start for the Mariners on Wednesday against the Rangers.

Nuno got rocked for five earned runs in six innings by the Astros last time he was given a start. He's not an attractive fantasy streaming option versus Texas.

Vidal Nuno lost to the Astros on Monday after yielding five runs in six innings.

Nuno was making a spot start as manager Lloyd McClendon skipped ace Felix Hernandez's start. The lefty's impression was poor as he served up three home runs and gave up seven hits overall while walking two and striking out two. Nuno will return to the bullpen with a 3.75 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a 55/15 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings.

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.
