Nola went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Angels on Sunday.
The rookie's second-inning, 407-foot shot to center extended the Mariners' 2-0 lead at the time and served as Nola's second career round tripper. The 29-year-old has multi-hit efforts in two of his last four starts and continues to sport an impressive .323/.364/.548 line across his first 33 big-league plate appearances.
Nola went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Nola continued the strong start to his big-league career with his second straight multi-hit effort. The rookie is now an impressive 7-for-17 with Tuesday's two-bagger, a home run, two RBI and four runs overall since his promotion June 16. With the Mariners essentially devoid of postseason aspirations this season, he could continue earning time at the big-league level as the season unfolds.
Nola went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an extra-inning loss to the Astros on Friday.
Nola launched a third-inning Wade Miley offering 360 feet to left for his first career round tripper and the first run of the contest for either club. The rookie was drawing his fourth start overall since his June 16 promotion and is now 5-for-13 with Friday's homer, two RBI, a walk and three runs over 11 games with the Mariners.
Nola, who was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, is 2-for-5 with a run over his first two games with the Mariners.
The 29-year-old rookie spent eight long seasons in the minors prior to his promotion, so the fast start to a long-awaited majors stint is particularly rewarding. Nola was slashing an impressive .327/.415/.520 with seven home runs and 37 RBI with the Rainiers, and his ability to fill multiple positions combined with Ryon Healy's extended recovery from spinal stenosis could result in Nola sticking around longer than some may have expected.
Nola will have his contract selected from Triple-A Tacoma by the Mariners on Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Nola signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners in November and will make his way to the majors after slashing .327/.415/.520 in 55 games. According to Corey Brock of The Athletic, the 29-year-old has been playing first base with the Rainiers over the last month, and he could seemingly see some time there with the Mariners after the departure of Edwin Encarnacion.
Nola agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday, Mariners Minors reports.
Nola appeared in 69 games for Triple-A New Orleans last year, piecing together a .279/.370/.376 slash line with two homers and 32 RBI. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign with Triple-A Tacoma.
Nola cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Nola has spent time at Triple-A in each of the past three seasons, so he is developing a reputation as a career minor leaguer. If the Marlins suffer some injuries at the major-league level this season, he could finally make his big-league debut, but will more likely continue to offer organizational depth at New Orleans.
Nola was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports
Nola was just 1-for-11 at the plate in a brief showing this spring, but even with J.T. Realmuto (back) not ready to begin the year, Nola is a ways away from factoring into the catching mix in Miami. The converted backstop is still expected to work on his catching at the Double-A level in 2018, provided he stays within the organization as opposed to free agency.
Nola was optioned to Double-A Jacksonville on Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The former middle infielder will work on his transition to catcher at a lower level than his 2016 campaign, when Nola managed a .261/.308/.376 output. Keep an eye this year on whether the 27-year-old can start replicating the success of J.T. Realmuto, who underwent a similar transformation.
Nola is making the transition to catcher, The Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins had great success converting another middle infielder, J.T. Realmuto, into a catcher a few years ago, but Nola doesn't possess close to that kind of upside at the plate. Still, if he's able to add backstop to his defensive portfolio, he might be able to carve out a spot for himself in the majors down the road as a versatile bench player.
Nola was added to Miami's 40-man roster Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Nola was a serviceable infielder at the Triple-A level last season, batting .261 with 23 doubles and a low strikeout rate, although he doesn't have much luster to his prospect shine. His defensive versatility and proximity to the big leagues could help him creep onto the major league roster at some point in 2017, but the 26-year-old's ceiling isn't overly high.
