by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio surrendered just two hits over three scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 3-2 loss to the Giants Tuesday.

"I was working with my fastball down in the zone and on my slider," Nicasio told MLB.com after the start. "I am working so hard and now I am more in focus and my body is better in shape. It's 100 percent different. I used to hang my slider a lot. I couldn't put my weight on my knee and I would throw with only my arm. Now I have better [stability] with my knee, so my breaking ball is sharper now. I am better."

Nicasio, who is locked into the team's regular-season rotation, will look to build off Tuesday's impressive spring debut moving forward.


Juan Nicasio seeking to add split-finger to repertoire


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Rockies right-hander Juan Nicasio has added a split-finger fastball to his assortment of pitches this season, which he hopes will result in better production. Pitching coach Jim Wright claimed that Nicasio didn't have confidence in it last season.

"I think he was reluctant to throw it," Wright told the Denver Post. "I think he had heard some things that it was tough on the arm, but he's got the perfect arm angle for it. So it's a weapon that is going to help him."

What remains unknown is if it will help him as a starter or reliever. Nicasio is being pushed as the fifth starter by southpaws Franklin Morales and Christian Friedrich. Nicasio had a miserable 2013 season despite a 9-9 record. He boasted a 5.14 ERA and walked 64 in 157 2/3 innings.
