I think he hurt his back recently. Also Nicolino is either ready to go to AAA or be called up the the Marlins. He's pretty much proven himself in AA.

Yea, he's managed to become the best pitcher who strikes out nobody. Which I'm totally cool with as long as he keeps us in games. I guess you don't need to K anybody when you're posting a WHIP of 1.07.

Seems like a Mark Buehrle type in that he doesnt strike out a lot of guys but that allows him to keep his pitch count down. I think his K rate will obviously improve with time though.

Im very interested to see how he performs in the majors.

It makes me wonder what path he's going to take to the majors. Will he follow the Heaney route and maybe finish the year in NO, or will he make the jump straight to the Marlins this year? I have a feeling we won't see him in Miami this year, unfortunately.

Unfortunately, I think you're right. Nicolino isn't on the 40 man roster, so there are a lot of guys we're more likely to see this season. The eventual (please God/Buddha/Satan/Zeus) DFA of Kevin Gregg will free up a spot, but we all know Brad Penny is next in line.

I can't believe Brad Penny hasn't been called up yet.

I don't think there is a Mark Buehrle-type, at least among successful pitchers. Buehrle's an enigma. Most pitchers like him don't last.

Nicolino should without a doubt see AAA before the majors. He's not the kind of guy who can jump from AA and immediately succeed in the majors. I definitely want to see how he handles himself in the PCL (where hitters generally thrive) before establishing that he's major league ready. He stopped striking out people, but if he truly is a ground ball pitcher now who doesn't walk batters he should be able to translate that to AAA, but I'm definitely still on the fence about Nicolino as a pitching prospect. He's good, but he's not top 100 prospect caliber like he was once touted to be.

He's definitely an interesting guy to follow, but people really need to temper their expectations with him. He's likely a #4 or #5 starter at the major league level at best. I've said before how he's given up a ton of runs have been deemed unearned this year, so while his ERA is low he's given up a fair amount of runs throughout the year.

The best thing we can hope for Nicolino is for him to be Henderson Alvarez lite. But he needs to see AAA. I'd be incredibly disappointed if the Marlins suddenly thrust him into the majors in September.

I can't believe Brad Penny hasn't been called up yet.

You do realize that he is Brad Penny

We signed Penny when Koehler seemed to be hitting the regression train. Since we signed Penny, Koehler has righted for the most part and is a big part of the rotation again, Brad Hand has given us some pretty good starts, and we traded for Jarred Cosart. So even with Hendo going down temporarily, we've been able to fill the rotation with guys who the front office deems (and rightfully so) better options than Brad Penny.

It's a great great great sign that the Marlins are learning that just because you sign a former good major league player doesn't mean you are obligated to send them up to the majors. We've gone through the stupid decisions of Rafael Furcal, Kevin Gregg, Carlos Marmol, Henry Rodriguez, etc... through the early parts of the year, but we've corrected that recently with releasing a guy like Miguel Tejada before letting him reach the majors and Brad Penny not getting a free pass to the majors for being mediocre in the minors.

Hopefully it's a sign of the Marlins finally starting to see what it takes to build a winning franchise. But whatever.

Nicolino's strikeout numbers are hilarious. 3.9 k/9 in AA?! wtf?!?!

In 139 IP he's given up 8 HR's. As much as I love strikeouts, the biggest thing with a pitcher is getting outs. Nicolino doesn't allow the ball to reach deep parts of the ballpark, letting his fielders do their job. I love love love ground ball pitchers, and based on numbers it feels like Nicolino is slowly morphing into a very efficient ground ball pitcher.

The biggest thing in his numbers that I see are the 18 walks. Nicolino's never been a guy to give up walks. Last year was really damn good with 30 walks allowed in 142 IP, and he's improved on that by allowing just 18 in 139 IP this year. The sign of a good pitcher is one who can command the plate extremely well, and numbers show Nicolino has great command of the strike zone.

While strikeouts are a big part of making an ace or #2 starting pitcher, I want my #3-5 guys to simply get outs however they can. Nicolino at his full potential would make an excellent #3 pitcher, although he's more likely a 4 or 5 guy. But given how he's performed this year, it isn't outlandish to call Nicolino our best pitching prospect outside of Heaney.

Unfortunately with Nicolino there's always a lot left to be desired with him, thus what makes him such a frustrating prospect. He'll have three or four 'alright' starts followed by a gem. If he develops consistency he could really be something.

I didn't mean I want to see him, I meant can't believe the FO hasn't called on him yet.
