News: Nuno is part of a large competition for one of the final three spots in the Arizona rotation to begin the season.
Impact: After being acquired from the Yankees for Brandon McCarthy last summer, Nuno pitched well for the Diamondbacks (20.3% K%, 5.9% BB%, 3.76 ERA, 1.09 WHIP). His chances to keep a rotation spot took a significant hit with the addition of Jeremy Hellickson, Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, and Robbie Ray via trade during the offseason. Further, the team has a slew of prospects on the brink of joining the big league club, so Nuno figures to have a short leash even if he emerges with one of the three available spots leading into Opening Day.
