Marlins | Justin Nicolino suffers loss

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 19:00:24 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino (2-2) allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Aug. 27, with four walks and one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) has allowed just two runs in each of his last three outings, although he has just one win over that stretch. He will make his next start against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Marlins | Jose Fernandez to DL

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:37:35 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (bicep) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained bicep tendon. SP Justin Nicolino was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans to take his place, and Nicolino will start Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Fernandez ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) should be immediately stashed away for keeper and dynasty leagues, as he may even be back before the season. Nicolino went 1-1 during his time with the Marlins in June, so watch how he does before you use him in your league. He is one of the Marlins' top prospects.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino to start Tuesday

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 05:23:29 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino will be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, Aug. 11, to make a start against the Boston Red Sox. It is not known whether Nicolino will stay with the team following the game. A corresponding roster move was not announced.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino made two starts in June before going back to the minors, so his sample size isn't that big. He had a 1-1 record and 4.09 ERA in those starts, so you may want to see how he does before thinking of him in the future.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino a rotation option?

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:39:50 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino could be the closest member of Class AAA New Orleans to a call-up to fill the rotation void left when SP Mat Latos was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro speculates.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino had a 4.09 ERA in two starts for the Marlins earlier this year, and he's gone 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 105 innings for New Orleans in 2015. The left-hander would definitely be in consideration for a pickup in deep mixed leagues if he secures a rotation spot in Miami for the rest of the season.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino sent down

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:58:36 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino was optioned to the minors Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had a 4.09 ERA in two starts for the Fish, but he is making room in the rotation for the return of ace Jose Fernandez ($7,600, 15.2% of cap), who is coming off Tommy John surgery. Fernandez should be owned in all leagues and will likely be a popular target on FantasyScore immediately. However, you may want to temper expectations against the San Francisco Giants in his season debut tomorrow. The Giants are one of the best offensive clubs on the road this year.

Marlins | Justin Nicolino sharp in debut

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 09:17:18 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino tossed seven scoreless innings against the Cincinnati Reds in an emergency spot start Saturday, June 20, after SP Tom Koehler (neck) was scratched with a neck injury. Nicolino gave up just four hits and two walks after sporting a 2.87 ERA in 78 1/3 innings for Class AAA New Orleans this year.

Fantasy Tip: Nicolino is the team's No. 3 ranked prospect, per MLB.com, and the left has really stood out in Miami's system the past two years. The southpaw doesn't miss many bats and has seen his strikeout numbers drop in recent seasons, but he can be effective when he's spotting his pitches, and he could be an effective spot starter when throwing in pitching-friendly Miami. However, it's unknown if he'll remain in the rotation, and his fate could be tied to that of Koehler.

Marlins | MIA uncertain who will start Tuesday

Sat, 23 May 2015 10:27:45 -0700

The Miami Marlins are expected to recall RPs Vin Mazzaro and Andre Rienzo from Class AAA New Orleans to replace injured SPs Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) and Mat Latos (knee) on the 25-man roster. The team will not need another starting pitcher until their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, May 26, when either SP Justin Nicolino or Jose Urena could be promoted.

Fantasy Tip: As a result of Alvarez and Latos being placed on the disabled list, it's possible that whoever gets the starting nod for Tuesday's game will stick around in the rotation for at least one more start. Nicolino, who is one of the organization's top prospects, is 3-1 with a 2.09 ERA in eight starts for New Orleans, while Urena has pitched even better, going 4-0 with a 1.21 ERA in six starts.

Marlins | Andrew Heaney, Justin Nicolino performing well

Fri, 30 May 2014 15:43:25 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Andrew Heaney earned the win for Triple-A New Orleans Tuesday, May 27, by giving up just one hit in seven innings while walking none and striking out seven. He has allowed a run on eight hits with no walks and 14 strikeouts in his first 11 innings with New Orleans. Meanwhile, SP Justin Nicolino, didn't give up a hit with Double-A Jacksonville until the seventh inning Thursday, May 29. Nicolino has won four of his six decisions for a 3.30 ERA with nine walks and 27 strikeouts in 62 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Heaney or Nicolino, or both, could be up in the bigs pitching by the end of the year. Heaney is the bigger prospect and will command more attention in fantasy leagues if he's called up. If you're in a deep mixed league, you might want to think about stashing Heaney soon.

Marlins | Jacob Turner guaranteed spot?

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 15:33:17 -0800

Miami Marlins SP Jacob Turner is all but guaranteed a starting rotation spot this year. President of baseball operations Michael Hill mentions SPs Brad Hand, Brian Flynn and Tom Koehler as candidates to compete for the fifth and final rotation spot. SPs Andrew Heaney, Justin Nicolino, Adam Conley and Anthony DeSclafini will receive spring innings to prove themselves, but they'll likely start in the minors.
