Torborg sours on Vladimir Nunez
(4/21/2003) Jeff Torborg told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel he cannot afford to use Nunez when the game is on the line. The reliever allowed two key homers in a weekend series at New York. "Everything is flat," Torborg said. "If his arm is healthy, we'll get him straight."
Nunez scratched on Wednesday
(3/5/2003) Vladimir Nunez (stiff back) was scratched on Wednesday.
(8/3/2002) Nunez, suffering from a hamstring injury, was able to pitch on Friday. He pitched the final two innings for the Marlins and allowed only two hits. It doesn't appear that his injury will prevent him form pitching.
(8/2/2002) Nunez has a hamstring injury. His current status is day to day.
(7/22/2002) The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel says Nunez has been more effective recently throwing from the set position. Jeff Torborg will continue to use him, Braden Looper, Armando Almanza and Carl Pavano in save situations. Nunez has blown six saves and will have to pitch effectively for an extended period to win the full-time job back.
(5/9/2002) Nunez pitched a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday for his sixth save. It seems he has grabbed firm control of Florida's closer job after experiencing some minor early troubles when he first got the opportunity to finish games in April.
(4/10/2002) The Miami Herald said Nunez has confirmed a published report that the Marlins have given him the closer's job. Nunez lacks experience and is untested as a closer, and he is a risky pick until he proves himself.
(3/29/2002) The Miami Herald says Nunez will share the closer role with Braden Looper for now. Nunez may pitch two-inning stints, and Looper will get the call in one-inning situations. Looper should end up with more of the saves between the two.
(8/4/2001) Nunez was activated from the disabled list by the Marlins on Friday. He will pitch in middle relief and isn't worth adding to your Fantasy roster.
(8/2/2001) Nunez pitched one inning in a rehab assignment Wednesday for Single-A Kane County. He is scheduled to be activated on Friday but won't be used in a prominent enough role to be worth adding to a Fantasy roster.
(7/31/2001) Nunez, who is on the disabled list with a strained quadriceps, is expected to be activated in time for Friday's game in St. Louis. He will pitch in relief and isn't worth a pickup right now.
(7/26/2001) Marlins Manager Tony Perez says Nunez is "very close" to recovering from a pulled right quadriceps, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. He will throw in the bullpen Friday in Cincinnati and could be sent on a short rehab assignment before being activated in time for an Aug. 3 doubleheader in St. Louis.
(7/20/2001) The Marlins placed Nunez on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a pulled right quadriceps muscle. He is expected to return in 15 days, but don't bother holding onto him except in the deepest of NL-only leagues.
(3/28/2001) Nunez has a chance to begin the season in the Florida rotation. He allowed just one run in five and one-third innings on Tuesday. He might make a good emergency Fantasy starter if he can nail down a job with one more good spring start.
(6/8/2000) The Marlins have send Nunez down to Triple-A Calgary. Nunez has posted an 0-6 record in 12 starts this season while giving up 56 runs in 60 1/3 innings. Florida won't need to add a starter until next Tuesday, when they'll probably bring Ron Mahay or Ricky Bones out of the bullpen for spot duty.
(6/6/2000) Optioned to Triple-A Calgary. Mark Smith was activated from the disabled list to take his place. Smith will serve as a fifth OFer and pinch hitter. Nunez has been awful this year. He would be best served by a move to the bullpen, but he wants to start.
(6/5/2000) Allowed 5 ER in 3 IP to increase his ERA to 8.35 on the season. Nunez will stay in the rotation for now, but could be replaced when A.J. Burnett and Alex Fernandez return.
(5/9/2000) Pitched his first decent game Monday, going 6 IP with only 2 ER. This will keep Nunez in the rotation for now. Despite the 2 ER, Nunez gave up 9 base runners in 6 IP.
(5/3/2000) Nunez tried a sidearm delivery Tuesday, but it didn't change the outcome any. There is speculation that Nunez might be removed from the rotation. His most likely replacement would be Ricky Bones. Nuñez pitched much better out of the bullpen than the rotation last year (4.63 ERA vs. 3.10 ERA). Moving Bones into the rotation would be a risky move- despite his 0.47 ERA, he has allowed 10 walks and 10 Ks in 10 IP. On the other hand, the only options the Marlins have are sticking with Nunez or going with someone from Triple-A.
(4/17/2000) Started and pitched three innings Sunday, allowing 5 ER on 7 Hits. Nunez has pitched 12 innings in three starts, with a 10.50 ERA. You might reserve him until he gets on track.
