Nolasco likely to be scratched

Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco likely will be scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday against the Astros.

Nolasco is being tested to see if he has a torn meniscus in his right knee. Details remain sketchy at this point.

With a 14-8 record and a 4.22 ERA, Nolasco paces the Marlins in victories. He has made 25 starts, and he’s thrown 155 2/3 innings.

Nolasco is 9-2 since June 23.

790 The Ticket’s Josh Friedman reported Nolasco has a torn meniscus and he could be out for the season. There has been no official word yet on Nolasco’s status.
