Justin Nicolino: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
