CBSDespite being 24 years old, Nicasio has shined with Double-A Tulsa this year and is 5-1 with a 2.22 ERA in nine starts. He owns impressive control, boasting a 63:10 K:BB ratio which has contributed to a glistening 1.02 WHIP. He earns a tough assignment against the Cardinals, who are first in the majors in runs scored and batting average. But with a fastball that can reach 100 mph, Fantasy owners should consider Nicasio a decent SP option in NL-only formats.
63:10 K:BB ratio and a 100 mph fastball...what is the deal? Haven't really heard his name kicked around the boards.
