RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After his previous two campaigns were besieged by injuries, Nicasio enjoyed a healthy 2013 season, but his habitual inconsistency resulted in disappointing returns. Erratic command of the strike zone often mounted Nicasioís pitch counts early on in games, limiting him to just nine quality starts in his 31 turns. As one might expect from his failure to work deep in games, Nicasioís walk rate spiked to a career-worst (9.1 percent), while his strikeout rate also bottomed out at 16.9 percent, the latter of which may have been influenced by a two mile-per-hour decline in his fastball velocity. With Nicasio no longer an enigma after finally completing a full season in the majors and his rate stats headed in the wrong direction, itís difficult to be bullish on the 27-year-oldís prospects at this point. Nicasio will almost certainly claim the No. 4 or 5 rotation spot coming out of the spring, but he seems a prime candidate to get pushed to long relief once some of the Rockiesí more promising younger pitchers are ready for the big leagues.

2013

Nicasio's 2012 season was marred by bad luck in both performance and health. After opening the year in the Colorado rotation, Nicasio's campaign came to an end after he required season-ending surgery to remove four bone chips from his knee. When he was on the mound, he was hit around with regularity, resulting in a 1.62 WHIP. However, aside from a rise in walk rate, most of Nicasio's peripherals argue that he actually took a step forward, as his strikeout rate ticked up (8.4 K/9) despite giving up an inordinate amount of hits, as his .378 BABIP suggests. Nicasio recovered from knee surgery quickly enough to pitch in fall instructional and winter leagues, allowing him to regain some lost innings and sufficiently prepare for 2013. Now fully healthy, Nicasio could very well emerge as one of the team's better starters, assuming his walk rate and batting average against fall more in line with his career norms.

2012

Nicasio's season ended in a very scary incident on the mound as a line drive that hit him in the head ultimately required surgery to repair a fracture to the C1 vertebra in his neck. Initially, there were questions as to whether Nicasio would pitch again, but the offseason reports about his progress have been very encouraging as he shed his brace in late September, was throwing from a mound in October and started taking full bullpen sessions in the Dominican Republic in November. Nicasio showed excellent control throughout his time in the minors, while his success during a 13-start stint with Colorado before the injury (7.28 K/9IP, 2.26 BB/9IP) should open up an opportunity for him coming out of spring training assuming that he's back to full health.
