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.
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.
Thu, Sep 18, 2014 11:39:00 PM

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.
