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. Jun 23 - 5:12 PM

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.

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.
Sun, Aug 23, 2015 01:08:00 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.

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.
Tue, Aug 11, 2015 01:02:00 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.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 01:26:00 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.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 01:43:00 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.
