"We discussed it yesterday, and for me, looking at the big picture ... looking at the whole season, it's not my preference,'' Nuno said Thursday. "What I told them is I'll just go there as a reliever. The way I became a part of the team, they selected me as a reliever. So, I opted out as a starter. It's a privilege that they asked me (to be a starter), but I'm still going as a reliever."
