Pirates | Juan Nicasio moved to bullpen

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:55:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio will pitch out of the bullpen full time going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Nicasio should be replaced in all fantasy formats. Look for updates on who will replace him in the starting rotation, but Tyler Glasnow is worth grabbing in the majority of seasonal leagues. He has a 1.61 ERA and 10.7 K/9 through 84 innings over 15 starts with Class AAA Indianapolis and looks ready to make the jump to the majors.

Pirates | Juan Nicasio to be used in bullpen

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 16:12:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio initially will be used out of the bullpen when he returns to the team, according to manager Clint Hurdle.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Nicasio would lose value if he remains in the bullpen. He should be a starting option in NL-only leagues and some deeper mixed leagues at this point.

Pirates | Juan Nicasio placed on restricted list

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 07:16:51 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed SP Juan Nicasio on the restricted list so that he can return to the Dominican Republic to take care of a family matter. The team is likely to call up SP Wilfredo Boscan from Class AAA Indianapolis to start in his place Tuesday, June 21, against the San Francisco Giants. In other moves, the Pirates recalled RPs Curtis Partch and Jorge Rondon and INF Jason Rogers from Indianapolis, while designating RP Cory Luebke for assignment and optioning RP Rob Scahill to Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Nicasio is 5-6 with a 5.83 ERA through 13 appearances (12 starts) this season, with 27 walks and 65 strikeouts through 63 1/3 innings. Despite the high strikeout totals, the 29-year-old right-hander is in jeopardy of being demoted to the bullpen soon because of his struggles facing batters during the second and third times through the batting order. Boscan is 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA in five relief appearances at the MLB level this season but would make a risky play in DFS Tuesday.

Pirates | Juan Nicasio's spot in danger

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 11:49:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Juan Nicasio was roughed up in his last start, and he might be moving to the bullpen soon. His next turn would come against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, June 21, but the Pirates haven't announced their pitchers for that series. Nicasio is holding opponents to a .235 average the first time through the lineup with a 4.88 strikeout-to-walk ratio, but hitters are batting .326 and his strikeout-to-walk ratio moves to 1.15 the second time through. SPs Tyler Glasnow, Wilfredo Boscan and A.J. Schugel are options to replace Nicasio in the rotation if he's booted.

Fantasy Tip: Nicasio was an early season sleeper target because of his impressive spring training work, but he's quickly faded and should only be rostered in NL-only leagues at this point. Top pitching prospect Jameson Taillon is already up, but Glasnow's addition would be welcomed immensely by fantasy owners everywhere. Stash Glasnow now if he's out there in your league.
