Vincent hasn't been the quality go-to guy he was the previous couple of years for the M's. He started the 2018 campaign slumping, putting up an ugly 6.10 ERA in April, then seemed to get things together in May (2-1, 2.31) before hitting the DL with a groin strain for three-plus weeks. He returned for a brutal month of July (0-1, 6.35) before once again seeming to turn things around in August. Before this season, he'd never posted an ERA higher than 3.75, but this year's mark hasn't been that low all season and Nick will need to finish with a tremendous final two months to keep that streak intact.
He's been a more reliable option from the 'pen than Juan Nicasio has, but maybe high-leverage situations should be given sparingly to Vincent for a while.
