Nola (2-2) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five across six innings to take the loss Friday against the Reds.
Nola gave up a pair of runs in the first inning on a night the Phillies bats were quiet, and he was unable to keep them in the contest. He's failed to post a quality start in two of his last three outings, and his ERA has risen from 3.27 to 4.34, but the fact he's struck out 35 hitters over his last 38 innings make him a useful fantasy option in most leagues. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Marlins.
Nola allowed one run on four hits over seven innings in a 1-0 loss to the Pirates on Sunday. He struck out five and walked two.
Nola, who was making his first start since coming off the disabled list with a lower-back strain, topped out at 95.5 mph with his fastball and averaged 92.3 mph, according to Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia. He needed just 89 pitches to get through seven innings. The 23-year-old righty is scheduled to face the Reds in his next start.
Nola (back) has been activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Pirates, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Nola has been out for nearly a month with a lower-back strain, but he shouldn't face any pinch-count limitations in his return from the DL on Sunday after he cruised through two rehab starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, covering 10.1 innings and turning in a 0.87 ERA and 0.68 WHIP. The right-hander will benefit from a favorable matchup right off the bat against a Pirates squad that has compiled a .269 team wOBA over the last two weeks, ranking last in the majors during that span.
Nola (back) is expected to come off the disabled list to start Sunday's game against the Pirates, Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Nola tossed 6.1 shutout innings (83 pitches) without a hitch during his last rehab start for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, clearing the way for him to return to the big-league rotation. His first start back is expected to be May 21 against the Pirates. Nola held a 4.50 ERA and struck out 15 batters across 16 innings (three starts) this season before landing on the disabled list.
Nola threw 6.1 shutout innings in his final rehab start Monday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Nola fired 83 pitches in the start and struck out seven against just one walk. Unless the Phillies make a surprise decision to send him out for another rehab appearance, Nola appears to be in line to start May 20 against Pittsburgh. He has been out since April 20 with the back injury but had a solid 15 strikeouts in 16 innings pitched before he went down.
