2018 Fantasy Baseball Outlook

Nicasio has found himself in the bullpen over the past few years since fizzling out as a starter with Colorado. While he didn't exactly post a gaudy strikeout rate last season (9.0 K/9), he did enough...

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

As a starter, Nicasio lasted only 12 games, compiling a 5.05 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 63:25 K:BB in 62.1 innings. Opponents stacked lineups with left-handed batters, who slashed .291/.366/.568 in 233 plate appearances against him. A midseason move to the bullpen then salvaged some of Nicasio's season. As a reliever, he registered a 3.88 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 75:20 K:BB in 55.2 innings. He also set a franchise record by striking out at least one batter in 33 straight relief appearances, during which he compiled a 2.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a whopping 73 strikeouts in 48 innings. Nicasio ranks behind Tony Watson, Dan Hudson and Felipe Rivero in the pecking order for saves, but he showed he has closer-like stuff.

2016

Nicasio had an up-and-down season in Los Angeles last year. He struggled with his control to the tune of a 4.9 BB/9, and for the second straight year left-handed batters hit over .300 against him, a whopping .348. His 10.0 K/9 was certainly impressive enough, but he's not likely going to get lucky enough again to post a 2.0 HR/FB rate. He has been one of the darlings of spring training, fanning over a batter per inning while excelling at preventing runs, and it's possible that he is this year's Ray Searage reclamation success. First, he'll have to win a rotation spot.

2015

With a fastball capable of touching the mid-90s, Nicasio has often tantalized with his gifts but has seen his productivity trend downward since his 2011 MLB debut. Though he was one of the few Rockies pitchers to avoid the DL last season, Nicasio was a complete mess at the back end of the rotation, yielding a 5.92 ERA and 15 home runs over 73 frames before the Rockies sent him to the minors. He returned to the majors in August and served in a relief role the rest of the way, where he found better results (3.48 ERA, 17:5 K:BB ratio over 20.2 innings). Alas, it wasn’t enough to convince the Rockies that they had a future bullpen ace on their hands, as he was traded to the Dodgers in November. Nicasio’s new team is hopeful the move away from Coors Field might be precisely what he needs to emerge as a useful fifth starter, but he’ll work in middle relief if he fails to claim a rotation spot in spring training.

2014

After his previous two campaigns were besieged by injuries, Nicasio enjoyed a healthy 2013 season, but his habitual inconsistency resulted in disappointing returns. Erratic command of the strike zone often mounted Nicasio’s pitch counts early on in games, limiting him to just nine quality starts in his 31 turns. As one might expect from his failure to work deep in games, Nicasio’s walk rate spiked to a career-worst (9.1 percent), while his strikeout rate also bottomed out at 16.9 percent, the latter of which may have been influenced by a two mile-per-hour decline in his fastball velocity. With Nicasio no longer an enigma after finally completing a full season in the majors and his rate stats headed in the wrong direction, it’s difficult to be bullish on the 27-year-old’s prospects at this point. Nicasio will almost certainly claim the No. 4 or 5 rotation spot coming out of the spring, but he seems a prime candidate to get pushed to long relief once some of the Rockies’ more promising younger pitchers are ready for the big leagues.

2013

Nicasio's 2012 season was marred by bad luck in both performance and health. After opening the year in the Colorado rotation, Nicasio's campaign came to an end after he required season-ending surgery to remove four bone chips from his knee. When he was on the mound, he was hit around with regularity, resulting in a 1.62 WHIP. However, aside from a rise in walk rate, most of Nicasio's peripherals argue that he actually took a step forward, as his strikeout rate ticked up (8.4 K/9) despite giving up an inordinate amount of hits, as his .378 BABIP suggests. Nicasio recovered from knee surgery quickly enough to pitch in fall instructional and winter leagues, allowing him to regain some lost innings and sufficiently prepare for 2013. Now fully healthy, Nicasio could very well emerge as one of the team's better starters, assuming his walk rate and batting average against fall more in line with his career norms.

2012

Nicasio's season ended in a very scary incident on the mound as a line drive that hit him in the head ultimately required surgery to repair a fracture to the C1 vertebra in his neck. Initially, there were questions as to whether Nicasio would pitch again, but the offseason reports about his progress have been very encouraging as he shed his brace in late September, was throwing from a mound in October and started taking full bullpen sessions in the Dominican Republic in November. Nicasio showed excellent control throughout his time in the minors, while his success during a 13-start stint with Colorado before the injury (7.28 K/9IP, 2.26 BB/9IP) should open up an opportunity for him coming out of spring training assuming that he's back to full health.
