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.
Apr 4 - 3:36 PM

Vidal Nuno is no longer in competition for a spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.

He could make the club as a reliever or, probably more likely, will head to the Triple-A rotation. Nuno held a solid 3.76 ERA over 14 starts for the D'Backs last season after coming over in a trade with the Yankees, but he's been roughed up for six runs across five frames this spring. The D'Backs have also informed Andrew Chafin that his only chance to crack the Opening Day roster is as a reliever.
Mar 16 - 7:07 PM

Vidal Nuno was touched up for four runs on five hits and a walk over three innings of work against the Athletics Tuesday.

Nuno relieved Trevor Cahill in the game and served up four doubles and a home run in his three frames. The former Yankee is competing for a spot in the rotation this spring, so he can't afford many showings like this.
Mar 10 - 7:31 PM

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.

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.
Mon, Aug 18, 2014 10:46:00 PM

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.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 07:06:00 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.

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.
