3. Juan Nicasio– 1.298 WHIP, 7.5 H/9, 0.2 HR/9, 4.2 BB/9, 10.0 K/9
Nicasio being one of the better relievers on this team probably says more about the rest of the relievers than it does Nicasio. But still, Nicasio has been good this year, especially considering that he was picked up for Noel Cuevas in the offseason. He has the lowest WHIP and h/9 of his career, and if he could stop walking batters his 10.0 k/9 rate would look a lot better. A converted failed starter in Colorado, Nicasio may have extended his career by proving himself as a good relief pitcher. He might be the best eighth inning option on the team, and if he can get his walk rate down he could be a legitimate setup guy.
