RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Nicolino struggled to get going following a promotion to Double-A last season, posting a 4.96 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in nine starts (45.1 innings ) compared to the sparkling 2.23 ERA and 1.11 WHIP he posted over 18 starts (96.2 innings) at High-A Jupiter. The blame cannot entirely be placed on the pitcher as he suffered an unfortunate 97-point spike in his BABIP to .388 during his time at Double-A. Lacking elite strikeout ability, Nicolino leans on steady command (3.16 K/BB in 2013) and an advanced approach, frequently mixing location and velocity, to get by. Another trip through Double-A is the likely course of action for Nicolino in 2014 with the chance for a second-half promotion if he pitches well down on the farm.

2013

A former second-round pick, Nicolino was included in the blockbuster deal between the Jays and Marlins in November. As a 21-year-old left-hander with control, Nicolino should progress somewhat quickly through the Marlins' system after carrying a 5.7 K/BB in the Midwest League last season. By most accounts, he has the ceiling to be a good big league starter, but the upside appears to be limited to that of a mid-rotation option as the strikeout rate could tumble a bit as he faces more advanced hitters at higher levels.

2012

The 2nd round pick from 2010 had a very fine season at Low-A and Single-A in 2011, posting a 1.33 ERA across 15 appearances (12 starts) and striking out 73 batters in 61 innings with just 13 walks. His low-90s fastball is complemented with some nice secondary offerings so he should continue to dominate at the lower levels.
