The Philadelphia Phillies have called up right-hander Aaron Nola. Nola, the 7th pick in the 2014 Draft is considered to be the Phillies best prospect. Nola and AA shortstop J.P. Crawford are considered the only high level prospects in the organization.

The former LSU alum was ranked 12th and 38th hence rankings by Baseball America and Keith Law of ESPN during their midseason prospect rankings. His career 2.57 ERA in the minor leagues earned Nola the call up. Nola projects as a very safe prospect with little chance of becoming a bust as he has some of the best fastball command I have seen from a minor league pitcher. At 6’1″, 195 lbs, Nola projects as a number 2-3 starter in the bigs. Nola’s major league service time will also fall well short of super-two designation as he will be under team control through 2021.

Philly fans have been anxious to see Nola in the majors after watching their team progressively decline over the past few years. Only time will tell if Nola can be apart of the eventual rebuild in Philadelphia. the young right-hander will likely start Monday or Tuesday when the team takes on the Tampa Bay Rays at Citizens Bank Park.
