Nolasco concerned about knee

Ricky Nolasco, feeling discomfort in his right knee, is now doubtful to make his scheduled start on Friday against the Braves.

“He’s concerned about his knee,” Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “Right now, that’s the only thing I can say.”

Nolasco has a torn medial meniscus in his right knee. He went 11 days without pitching before he faced the Braves last Saturday (Aug. 28) at Atlanta.

In a rough outing, Nolasco gave up six runs in two innings, throwing 62 pitches, with 41 in the second inning.

Nolasco’s season may be over. The right-hander is 14-9 with a 4.51 ERA.

Andrew Miller, who took batting practice with the pitchers on Wednesday, is the likely replacement to face the Braves on Friday. But that has not been announced.
