Yankees not ready to replace Vidal Nuno with Adam Warren


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi explained Sunday why he made the decision to keep struggling pitcher Vidal Nuno in the rotation.

"You can look at (Saturday’s) game and say he gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings and it could’ve been three (one run was unearned) and all of a sudden it doesn’t look so bad," Girardi said, per The Star-Ledger. "Yeah, he gave up three homers. To me, for him it’s keep the ball in the ballpark and getting some quick out. He’ll continue to work at it."

Adam Warren was rumored to be a candidate to replace Nuno in the rotation, but Girardi isn't ready to make that move just yet.

"There are two things you have to think about if you decide to make him a starter," Girardi said of Warren. "How do you build him up because it’s going to take a while and you’ll probably have one of your starting pitchers build up (off the DL) by then.

"Now, you’re taking an extremely important component of your bullpen away. So, in a sense, you’re robbing Peter to pay Paul. And where Warren has been able to help us usually twice out of every five days, you’re only going to get one start every five days. He has been extremely important to the success of the bullpen."


Vidal Nuno still in rotation after another defeat Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) One might think the Yankees would use an off-day this week to skip Vidal Nuno in the rotation - but one would be wrong. He will be making his next start Friday against Boston despite another pounding Saturday, this time against Baltimore.

Nuno was knocked out in the seventh inning after yielded four earned runs on six hits with two walks and four strikeouts. He was hurt by home runs off the bats of Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz and Steve Pearce and is giving up an average of two taters per nine innings on the year.

The fourth loss in five decision for Nuno this season raised his ERA to a disturbing 5.88.


Change could come to Yankees rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Though the Yankees are not necessarily planning to make a change in their rotation, manager Joe Girardi is keeping tabs on Vidal Nuno's struggles.

 Nuno has a 7.43 ERA during the month of June, and the Yankees are just 5-6 in his starts this season. Though Girardi stopped short of saying Nuno is pitching for his job, he did acknowledge that improvement is needed.

"I don't ever put that type of pressure on people," Girardi told MLB.com Wednesday. "They understand what is on the line every day, and they understand that this is a performance-based business."

If Nuno is in danger of losing his job, an obvious replacement could come from the bullpen, in the form of Adam Warren. Warren is 1-3 with a 2.19 ERA in 37 innings as the team's long reliever.

"There's conversations that we have all the time," Girardi said. "We'll continue to look at things."

Unfortunately, the Mariners evened the game after he left. Nuno owns a 4.97 ERA and 44:19 K:BB raito in 58 innings. He's scheduled to face the A's Sunday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Vidal Nuno fails to get through five innings Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nuno allowed three runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings. He walked two, and struck out four. Most of Nuno's struggles came in the fourth inning. After allowing a solo home run to Mike Trout in the first, Nuno had two straight uneventful innings.

Vidal Nuno named Saturday starter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Yankees manager Joe Girardi named Vidal Nuno the starter for Saturday's game against the Angels, MLB.com reports.

In fact, Girardi appears to be leaning towards sticking with Nuno in the No. 5 spot, the Wall Street Journal reports. He pitched five scoreless innings in his first start Sunday.
