TAMPA, Fla. -- Yankees left-hander Vidal Nuno was announced on Thursday as the recipient of the 2013 James P. Dawson Award, given annually to the outstanding Yankees rookie in Spring Training.

Nuno, 25, was 1-1 with one save and an 0.61 ERA in seven appearances (two starts) for the Yankees this spring. He permitted just one run in 14 2/3 innings, allowing 10 hits while walking four and striking out 13.

The Yankees are still considering Nuno to break camp with the club on the Major League roster as a long reliever and second left-hander behind Boone Logan.

Nuno pitched last season at Class A Tampa and Double-A Trenton, going 10-6 while leading all Yankees Minor Leaguers with a 2.54 ERA over 138 1/3 innings.
