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. Aug 18 - 10:46 PM

Date:

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.
Aug 13 - 7:06 PM

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.
Aug 8 - 12:24 AM

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.
Aug 2 - 1:14 AM

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.
Jul 27 - 4:35 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 12:52 AM

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.
Jul 13 - 9:30 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 2:27 PM

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.
Jul 9 - 12:20 AM

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.
Jul 6 - 11:45 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.
Jun 27 - 11:04 PM

Vidal Nuno was touched up for five runs (four earned) over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

Nuno gave up six hits (including three home runs) and two walks before being pulled in the seventh inning. He has now allowed 15 home runs in just 67 1/3 innings this year, including 13 at home. Yankees manager Joe Girardi plans to keep him in the rotation for now, but that's probably more because of a lack of options than anything else.
Jun 21 - 4:17 PM

Vidal Nuno allowed eight runs on eight hits over three innings in a loss to the A's on Sunday.

Nuno was done in by two big blasts, as he gave up three-run home runs to Derek Norris and Coco Crisp in the first two innings. It's been up and down for the left-hander this season, who now owns a 5.90 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 61 innings. The Yankees don't seem to possess many better options, so he'll likely be trotted back out Saturday against the Orioles.
Jun 15 - 8:08 PM

Vidal Nuno yielded a mere run over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday in a no-decision against the Mariners.

Nuno received an extra day's rest after Monday's workout, and he appeared refreshed moving through the Mariners' lineup. Of course, Nuno didn't blow anybody away -- that's not his jam. The lefty struck out two, walked one and yielded four hits. He's given up just three runs over his last two outings, but he completed only 10 1/3 frames total in those contests. Nuno is hanging onto AL-only relevance by the skin of his fingernails, but you'd be better off finding a more reliable option. The 26-year-old stays on the West Coast next time out, toeing the rubber in Oakland on Sunday.
Jun 11 - 1:15 AM

Vidal Nuno got the no-decision, allowing two runs over 4 2/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.

Nuno wasn't able to get through the fifth inning, putting runners on second and third with one out before Jed Lowrie hit a sacrifice fly to make it 4-2. Matt Daley relieved him and got the final out of the inning. Overall, he allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out five. Nuno hasn't been great since moving into the rotation in late April, now with a 4.50 ERA as a starter this season. He'll face the Royals on the road in his next outing.
