Phillies' Aaron Nola: Throwing well in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Pete Mackanin said he is pleased with how Nola has been throwing thus far in camp, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.

Nola was diagnosed with a sprained UCL last July which ended his season early. He was given a platelet-rich plasma injection and rehabbed his injury during the offseason. Nola has said he is fully healthy, but he hasn’t truly tested his arm yet. That will happen when he starts pitching in games this spring. His first appearance in game action should come within the next week. He’s a risky investment this year given his elbow issue, but he could return significant value if he finds his form from early last season.

Phillies' Victor Arano: Out four weeks with UCL sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arano (elbow) has a right UCL sprain and will be shut down for four weeks, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.

Arano had experienced soreness in his elbow for weeks, but this is tough news for the 22-year-old. It's unlikely he'll be able to report to camp this year after receiving a plasma-rich platelet injection yesterday in Philadelphia. The reliever posted a 2.26 ERA over 46 minor league games last season and was promoted to Double-A Reading in August. Arano will try to get back on track when he returns later this spring.

Phillies' Jake Thompson: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (wrist) successfully threw an indoor bullpen session Wednesday, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.

The young right-hander has been held back from pitching activities while dealing with soreness in his right wrist. Thompson made 10 starts for the Phillies last season, posting a 5.70 ERA and a 32:28 K:BB ratio. Expect him to begin the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, barring any major injuries to the starting rotation.

Phillies' Cameron Rupp: Played through injury last season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rupp played through much of last season with an undisclosed arm injury, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The injury didn't seem to impact Rupp at the plate as his .447 slugging percentage put him among the top catchers in baseball. It did hurt his ability to slow down the run game, however, as he threw out just 27 percent of possible base stealers after averaging 38 percent his previous two seasons. The Phillies want to see Rupp improve on his game calling and pitch framing this season after he struggled in both areas last year. Phillies' bullpen coach John McLaren, who also works with the catchers, said Rupp needs to improve his focus during games. It will be important for Rupp to further develop defensively this season with top prospect Jorge Alfaro in Triple-A Lehigh Valley this year. He could start pushing for Rupp's job as soon as midseason if he gets off to a strong start in the minors.

Phillies' Drew Anderson: Highly regarded by some team scouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joe Jordan, the Phillies' director of player development, said there are scouts in the organization that think Anderson is the team's best pitching prospect, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Anderson, a 21st round draft pick in 2012, was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster this offseason. He has steadily added velocity to his fastball since he was drafted, and topped out at 97 mph last summer. He compliments his fastball with a solid breaking pitch and an improving changeup. Anderson made just 15 starts last season after returning from Tommy John surgery, but pitched well, going 3-4 with a 2.70 ERA and a 78:22 K:BB in 70 innings between Low-A Lakewood and High-A Clearwater. He will open the 2017 season at Double-A Reading.
