You could let Nicasio pitch 5 innings and go from there. Nicasio was a starter during his days in Colorado. Actually Nicasio has started 70 games. Despite the fact that his ERA in those games is 5.14, you have little options at this point. Besides, those were all starts at Coors Field, and Nicasio has been generally effective this year. Why not let him throw some innings and e what happens?
