Nuno makes strong case for D-backs rotation

PHOENIX -- Vidal Nuno could not have been much better his first Arizona start. Nuno mixed five pitches, touched every gradation on the radar gun from 92 mph to 74 mph, and generally had the Miami Marlins at his disposal through seven shutout innings Tuesday at Chase Field.

Ninth-inning blast ruins Nuno's debut with D-backs

PHOENIX -- Marcell Ozuna hit a two-out, two-run home run off Addison Reed in the ninth inning to spoil a brilliant Arizona debut by Vidal Nuno and give the Miami Marlins a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Ozuna hit Reed's 2-2 pitch off the batter's eye far above the 407-foot sign in straightaway center. It was the fifth blown save in 25 tries for Reed ...

B-Mac Attack (Photo credit: misternaxal) You probably heard the New York Yankees latest trade news today that pitcher Vidal Nuno was sent to the Arizona Diamondbacks for starter Brandon McCarthy.

New York Yankees: Enough of Vidal Nuno

Vidal Nuno has appeared in 14 games and started 11 for the New York Yankees this season, and I think we’ve seen enough. Nuno, 26, is 1-3 in those games with an abysmal 5.90 ERA. For pitchers who have thrown at least 60 innings, that’s the worst ERA in the American League. He’s given up 12 home-runs in 61 innings, and opponents are hitting a staggering .293 against him.

Yankees game 68: Nuno gives up game early

New York Yankees 5 — Oakland Athletics 10 Vidal Nuno struggled right from the beginning of the game. After a quick first inning on the offense, Vidal Nuno started the game and it was bad right away.
