Justin Nicolino does not impress in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Marlins pitching prospect Justin Nicolino probably isn't pitching for a rotation spot in spring training, and he didn't make a good first impression Thursday if he was. Nicolino failed to get out of the second inning in an exhibition start against Florida International University in his spring debut.

Nicolino, a non-roster invitee to spring training, was tagged for five runs in 1 2/3 innings. He gave up two runs in the first and was chased in the second after recording two outs and giving up three runs. He also surrendered seven hits in the game.

Nicolino is one of the team's better prospects, but he is not on the verge of making the jump to the majors just yet. He finished the 2013 season with a 3.11 ERA between Class A and Double-A.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2014) The Miami Marlins announced Thursday the 22 non-roster players that have received an invite to major-league spring training, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Pitchers Jesus Sanchez and Kevin Slowey, reliever Josh Spence, infielder Juan Diaz and outfielders Matt Angle and Joe Benson all signed minor league contracts with spring training invites.

Austin Barnes, Kyle Skipworth, Danny Black, Mark Canha, Colin Moran, Austin Nola, Anthony DeSclafani, Bryan Evans, Colby Suggs, Rett Varner, Nick Wittgren, Adam Conley, Andrew Heaney, James Leverton, Greg Nappo and Justin Nicolino -- all non-roster organizational players -- were extended invites to spring training.

Marlins, Cubs could look into trading prospects


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/13/2013) According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Marlins and Cubs are considering talks regarding a trade of some of their top prospects.

The pitching-heavy Marlins may be willing to part with some of their young hurlers, including major leaguers Jacob Turner, Henderson Alvarez and Nate Eovadi as well as prospects Andrew Heaney , Justin Nicolino , Adam Conley and Jose Urena and late-season callup Brian Flynn. In return, they would likely target one or more of the Cubs' top hitting prospects, including Kris Bryant , Javier Baez , Albert Almora and Jorge Soler .


Justin Nicolino posts sharp outing against Cardinals


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2013) Marlins pitching prospect Justin Nicolino was excellent in a spring start Thursday against St. Louis, allowing a run on six hits over five innings. He struck out three.

Nicolino was one of the prospects brought to Miami in this winter's blockbuster with the Blue Jays. He ranks sixth on their top-prospects list according to Baseball America and is expected to begin the year at High-A.


Nicolino not yet on fast track


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2013) MLB.com reports the Marlins are in no hurry to rush pitching prospect Justin Nicolino to the majors, which is why he isn't on the 40-man roster and wasn't invited to major-league camp. "There's always going to be hype about everyone, and more so for some guys," he said. "I want to come in here this season, and do what I do best -- continue to work hard. I'm not going to change anything. I'm not going to be anybody different. I'm going to try to go about my business the right way." Nicolino, who was acquired in the blockbuster trade with the Blue Jays this offseason, has a lively fastball, but it's his changeup that sets him apart. "Besides the fastball, the changeup is my favorite pitch," he said. "I have confidence to throw it early in the count, or late in the count. Sometimes I will even attack hitters with it. If I know they have a weakness, or they have a few holes in their swing, I'll attack it with my changeup. That's the thing that's helped me out so far, I'm not afraid to throw it."
