Juan Nicasio P LAD 23 Days

Nicasio was traded to the Dodgers on Monday for either a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Nicasio struggled over the span off 93.2 innings with the Rockies last season to the tune of a 5.38 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 2014. Part of the poor numbers can be attributed to his home park being Coors Field, but his numbers on the road (4.78 ERA, 1.62 WHIP) weren't that much better. It's unclear what role the Dodgers have in mind for Nicasio, but he could fight for a spot in the back end of the rotation or in the bullpen.

Nicasio was designated for assignment Thursday.

Nicasio owns an unsightly 5.03 ERA over 88 big league appearances, so the Rockies decided to remove him from the 40-man roster. His next step will be based on whether or not he clears waivers.

The Rockies will decide over the winter whether or not Nicasio will remain with the team as a starter or a reliever in 2015, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

The first order of business for the Rockies will be in determining if they even want to tender Nicasio a contract in the offseason, as the organization's patience with the right-hander has perhaps worn thin due the lack of development up to this point in his career. Should they decide to keep Nicasio in the fold, the numbers would seem to argue that the bullpen would be a better fit for him, given his better numbers since moving to relief in the second half. Over his 16.2 innings out of the bullpen this season, Nicasio has posted a 3.75 K/BB ratio, nearly double the figure he posted over 73 frames as a starter.

Nicasio tossed two scoreless innings in relief Wednesday vs. the Padres, giving up two hits and a walk.

Banished from the Rockies rotation earlier this season, Nicasio will see time as long man in the bullpen for now. Since his Aug. 7 recall, he's given up two runs over five relief innings. Should the Rockies suffer another injury to one of the members of their rotation, Nicasio would likely be the team's first option to make a spot start.

Nicasio was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

It seems Nicasio was brought up for insurance just in case Thursday's game goes into extra innings. In 14 starts for the Rockies earlier this season, Nicasio posted a 5.92 ERA and 1.59 WHIP, but he's at least more stretched out than Brooks Brown.

Rockies optioned RHP Juan Nicasio to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Nicasio has posted a 5.92 ERA over 14 starts this season and allowed a whopping 25 runs over his last 15 2/3 innings to earn the demotion. It's not clear at this point who will replace him in the Rockies' rotation.

Juan Nicasio took the loss, allowing seven runs over 5 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the D'Backs.

Nicasio's struggles continue, allowing five-plus runs in back-to-back starts. The right-hander allowed 11 hits -- including home runs to Miguel Montero and Paul Goldschmidt -- while walking one and striking out three. Nicasio will take his 4.68 ERA and 1.40 WHIP into next week's home start against the Braves.

Juan Nicasio was tagged for five runs over 4 2/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Indians.

Nicasio held the Indians to one run before giving up four runs in his final inning of work. He gave up nine hits (including a two-run homer to Asdrubal Cabrera) and no walks before being pulled. The outing pulled his ERA back up over 4.00 (to 4.06) on the year. He lines up for a start against the Dodgers next.

Juan Nicasio earned the no-decision, allowing four runs in six innings as the Rockies defeated the Padres 8-6 in ten innings on Sunday.

Nicasio allowed nine hits, including two home runs to Seth Smith and Rene Rivera, while walking one and striking out two. It's the fourth consecutive start in which Nicasio has registered three or fewer strikeouts, which is concerning. Overall, he has a 4.03 ERA with a 32/15 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings. Nicasio will face the Braves on the road in his next start.

Juan Nicasio improved to 3-1 with seven shutout innings against the Mets on Thursday as the Rockies went on to win 7-4.

Nicasio has been very inconsistent to start the season, entering Thursday's start with a 5.27 ERA. But he was brilliant against the Mets, holding them scoreless on three hits and a walk while striking out two. His ERA is now down to 4.19. Nicasio has shown flashes of brilliance at times in recent years but has simply been far too unreliable due to his spotty command. Nicasio will face the Rangers at home in his next outing.
