VIDAL NUNO RUMORS & GOSSIP
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Early control problems kept Diamondbacks starter Vidal Nuno from ending an inglorious streak.
The Arizona hitters didn't provide much help, either.
Phil Hughes set a single-season major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio, pitching eight strong innings for the Minnesota Twins in a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on a wet Wednesday afternoon.

PHOENIX -- For weeks, Vidal Nuno had pitched well only to be hurt by a lack of run support.
This time, the Arizona Diamondbacks finally scored a few for him -- but he was far from his best.
Eric Stults, himself unaccustomed to much support this season, got some help from San Diego's bats in a 6-5 victory Friday night over Arizona, extending the Diamondbacks' losing streak...

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. He gave up only four hits and struck out a career-high seven. He did not permit a runner past second base.

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.
New York Yankees 1 — Baltimore Orioles 2
Vidal Nuno started today’s game and was efficient and effective. He didn’t blow anyone away with fast pitches but he kept the Orioles from making good contact. He induced four ground balls and three fly balls in his start.

Like Nuno, Orioles...
