On April 15, 1987, against the Baltimore Orioles, became the second-youngest player in major league history to throw a no-hitter, and so far the only Milwaukee Brewer to do so. Nieves' no-hitter became the first ever thrown by a Puerto Rican in Major League Baseball.
After playing for the Brewers from 1986 to 1988, he suffered a career-ending arm injury. He was named Boston's 2013 pitching coach on November 7, 2012, after serving for the previous five seasons as bullpen coach of the Chicago White Sox. He worked as a minor league pitching instructor for the New York Yankees (1992–1996) and the White Sox (1999–2007) before joining the ChiSox' Major League staff.
