Vidal Nuno – Hot

The 28-year-old southpaw was brilliant this week, going 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA. Nuno nearly no-hit the Texas Rangers this week, allowing just 1 hit through 7.2 innings of work. He struck out a career high 10 batters and walked 2 en route to earning the win.

Nuno has been very effective for Seattle since being acquired from the Diamondbacks in early June. Nuno is 1-2 with a 3.25 ERA through 25 appearances in 2015. He has started 6 games for the M’s this season, but I believe his future in as a lefty specialist in the bullpen.
