Juan Nicasio: Optioned To Triple-A
Update: Nicasio was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.

Recommendation: A seven-run debacle on Tuesday was evidently the last straw for Nicasio, as the Rockies decided to officially demote the right-hander to the minors Friday. Closer Rafael Betancourt (groin) was activated to take Nicasio's spot on the active roster, while Drew Pomeranz will take his spot in the starting rotation, beginning Sunday.
