Marlins SP Justin Nicolino remains on roll with Tuesday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Marlins starter Justin Nicolino arrived on the mound Tuesday night on a roll. He left downright hot.

Nicolino pitched seven shutout innings in Atlanta. He allowed six hits with two walks and three strikeouts. He got out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the third and cruised the rest of the way.

The southpaw has given up on six runs in his last 27 1/3 innings in improving his ERA to 3.07, its lowest point since his first outing on June 20.


Marlins SP Justin Nicolino shines, takes tough loss on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/27/2015) Marlins rookie starter Justin Nicolino was excellent in his outing against the Pirates on Thusday. The young left-hander allowed two runs on six hits over six strong innings. He struggled a bit with his command, as he walked four and struck out just one. But it was still an impressive outing against a strong offense.

Nicolino was stuck with a hard-luck loss however, as the Marlins were unable to do much against Gerrit Cole. The Marlins were defeated by a score of 2-1.

Nicolino (2-2, 3.65 ERA) allowed a run to score in the second inning, and then served up a solo home run to Pedro Alvarez in the fourth. That was all the damage done against the rookie, as he was able to limit the scoring despite the control issues.

The youngster has been impressive lately. He has allowed exactly two runs in each of his last three starts, pitching into the eighth in his last two. But he has just one win over that three-start stretch.


Marlins SP Justin Nicolino gets no-decision despite strong outing


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) Marlins rookie starter Justin Nicolino pitched well against the Phillies on Saturday. Making his fifth career start, the young left-hander allowed two runs on five hits over 7 2/3 solid innings. He walked one and struck out four, but he did not factor in the final decision in the 4-2 loss.

Nicolino was given an early 2-0 lead in this one, and he made it stand up through the first seven innings. But he coughed up the lead by allowing two runs in the top of the eighth to tie the game.

Still, Nicolino lowered his ERA to 3.77 with the strong outing.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

It was the fourth start of his career and his second quality outing.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2015) Marlins pitcher Justin Nicolino made his first start since June 26, Tuesday against Boston.

Marlins recall Justin Nicolino to start Tuesday vs. Red Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2015) The Marlins officially recalled starting pitcher Justin Nicolino from Triple-A New Orleans to start Tuesday against the Red Sox in place of Jose Fernandez, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a right biceps strain.

Following his demotion to the minors in early July after a two-start stint with Miami, the left-hander went 3-4 with a 4.91 ERA in seven starts with New Orleans.

Marlins send SP Justin Nicolino back to the minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) The Marlins optioned starting pitcher Justin Nicolino to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday

The left-hander made two starts for the Marlins. He was brilliant in his MLB debut, tossing seven scoreless innings in a win over the Reds on June 20. Unfortunately, he struggled in his second start, allowing five runs in four innings during a loss to the Dodgers on June 26.


Marlins SP Justin Nicolino knocked around by Dodgers on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Marlins rookie pitcher Justin Nicolino struggled in his second career start on Friday. The young left-hander lasted just four innings and gave up five runs on six hits in the 7-1 loss to the Dodgers. He walked one and struck out two, and was never able to get into a rhythm against a tough Dodgers offense.

Staked to an early 1-0 lead, Nicolino promptly served up a two-run home run to Scott Van Slyke in the second inning, and that was just the beginning. In the fourth inning, Nicolino loaded the bases by way of a walk, hit-by-pitch and single. He then gave up back-to-back RBI singles to Jimmy Rollins and pitcher Brett Anderson to put the game out of reach.

This was a far cry from the seven shutout innings Nicolino twirled in his big-league debut on Saturday. His ERA rose to 4.09 after Friday's outing.


Marlins announce rotation plans, move Jarred Cosart to bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) The Marlins will activate pitcher Jarred Cosart (hand) from the 15-day disabled list Thursday. However, he will not immediately slot back into the rotation and will initially be available to pitch out of the bullpen.

Dan Haren will start Thursday against the Cardinals. Justin Nicolino will then open a three-game series against the Dodgers on Friday and be followed by Tom Koehler on Saturday. The team hasn't decided who will start Sunday's series finale.


Marlins SP Justin Nicolino posts impressive MLB debut on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/20/2015) Marlins rookie pitcher Justin Nicolino was excellent in his big-league debut on Saturday. The young left-hander held the Reds to just four hits over seven shutout innings. He walked two and struck out two, throwing 56 of his 84 pitches for strikes. 

Nicolino, a former second-round draft pick, was in control for a good portion of the night and did not seem rattled, as he earned his first Major League victory.

"Everyone wants to come up in their debut and throw up zeroes," Nicolino said, per MLB.com. "To go out there and do what I did tonight, against that team, it means a lot to me."

Interestingly, he was opposing Anthony DeSclafani of the Reds. The two pitchers were originally drafted by the Blue Jays and then dealt to the Marlins in 2012.

He was making a spot start for Tom Koehler, who was scratched with a neck and back injury. It is not yet known if Nicolino will get another start, or if he will head back to Triple-A following Saturday's game.

Nicolino has been solid in 13 starts despite having allowed 85 hits in 78 1/3 innings. He is 4-3 with a 2.87 ERA.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rumors have also persisted that Koehler has been involved in a trade.

Koehler has been solid in 2015 with a 5-4 record and career-best 3.76 ERA.

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 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."
