Padres' Austin Nola: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola will remain on the bench for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

Nola finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row. He's spent much of the season battling injuries and owns a modest .656 OPS in 74 plate appearances when available, though his 10:6 BB:K gives some reason for optimism. Victor Caratini will catch Yu Darvish in his absence.

Padres' Austin Nola: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola isn't starting Friday's game against the Rockies.

Nola drew starts in each of the last two games and went 2-for-7 with a double, an RBI and a strikeout. Victor Caratini will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Padres' Austin Nola: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The 31-year-old has gone 0-for-6 with a pair of walks in two games since returning from the injured list. Victor Caratini will once again start behind the dish as San Diego begins its series against Oakland.

Padres' Austin Nola: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

After being activated from the injured list Thursday, Nola started behind the plate in two of the Padres' subsequent three contests, going hitless with two walks across eight plate appearances. Though he'll sit in favor of Victor Caratini for the second time in the series, Nola should see the larger share of playing time between the two over the final two months of the season.

Padres' Austin Nola: Sitting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola will be on the bench for Friday's game against the Marlins.

Nola returned from a knee injury Thursday but won't be asked to start two games in a row right away. Victor Caratini will catch Joe Musgrove in his absence.

Padres' Austin Nola: Draws two walks in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks in Thursday's 3-2 win over Miami.

Nola missed nearly two months with a sprained knee, although he got on base twice in his first game back. The 31-year-old is batting just .204 through 19 games this season, but Victor Caratini hit only .215 in Nola's absence. As such, San Diego's catchers may split time more evenly going forward unless one of them gets hot with the bat.

Padres' Austin Nola: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

The 31-year-old has been on the shelf since late May with a sprained knee, and he'll rejoin the active roster for Thursday's series opener against the Marlins. Nola has been limited to 18 games this season due to injury and has a .217/.373/.326 slash line in 59 plate appearances. He saw some work at first base during his rehab assignment, and now that he's healthy he should share catching duties with Victor Caratini.

Padres' Austin Nola: Thursday activation expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres are expected to reinstate Nola (knee) from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

A left knee sprain has sidelined the 31-year-old since May 24, but he's set to finally make his return to start the four-game series in Miami. Once Nola is activated, backup catcher Webster Rivas will almost certainly be sent down.

Padres' Austin Nola: Could be activated over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said Tuesday that Nola (knee) could be activated from the 10-day injured list during the upcoming weekend series against the Marlins, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Tingler didn't provide a specific day for when the backstop could be reinstated, but the update suggests he could be activated as soon as Thursday's series opener. Nola has been out since May 24 with a left knee sprain, and he figures to resume sharing the catching duties with Victor Caratini when he returns.

Padres' Austin Nola: Nearing return from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) served as a designated hitter for Triple-A El Paso on Friday and went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts.

Nola has played in seven of the past eight days for El Paso, going 6-for-18 with a 2:4 BB:K thus far during his rehab assignment. He notably caught five innings Thursday, and the Padres could bring him back from the 10-day injured list once he catches a full nine-inning game for El Paso. Victor Caratini will continue to serve as the Padres' top backstop until Nola is reinstated.

Padres' Austin Nola: Playing first base in rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) played seven innings at first base in the second game of his rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego-Union Tribune reports.

Nola has taken the field at first base in each of his two rehab games thus far, going a combined 3-for-5 with a run, an RBI and a walk. The backstop has ample experience playing the infield throughout his career, but the decision to have him start at first base rather than at catcher during the beginning of his assignment with the Triple-A club is a clear indication that he's not quite ready to test his sprained left knee behind the plate. He'll almost certainly need to progress to getting in some games at catcher before he's deemed ready to return to the big-league club.

Padres' Austin Nola: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) was sent to Triple-A El Paso on Friday to begin a rehab assignment.

Manager Jayce Tingler said earlier in the week that Nola almost surely wouldn't be activated prior to the All-Star break, but him beginning a rehab stint Friday indicates that he should be able to return right around when the club resumes play July 16. The backstop hasn't played since suffering a knee sprain May 24 and should see substantial time behind the dish when he returns.

Padres' Austin Nola: Likely out through All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that it's "safe to assume" Nola (knee) won't return until after the All-Star break, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old is catching a couple bullpen sessions Monday and continues to progress slowly as he returns from the knee sprain he suffered in late May. Nola may need to begin a rehab assignment soon to have a chance of being activated immediately after the All-Star break, which ends July 16.

Padres' Austin Nola: Still inching toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) caught a bullpen session and played long toss in addition to doing agility work earlier this week, MLB.com reports.

The backstop remains without a definite timeline for a return, but he appears to be progressing from the left knee sprain that put him on the shelf in late May. In addition to his recent activity, Nola has also been doing blocking drills and taking batting practice. Given his extended absence, he'll almost certainly need to go on a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Padres.

Padres' Austin Nola: Takes batting practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) participated in batting practice Monday and did catching work off a machine Sunday, Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press reports.

Nola isn't necessarily close to a return, but he at least appears to be making progress as he works his way back from a sprained left knee. The Padres haven't mentioned a timeframe for the backstop's return. While he's out, Victor Caratini will continue to serve as the team's primary catcher.

Padres' Austin Nola: Continues inching toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola is progressing in his recovery from a sprained left knee, the Associated Press reports.

Nola has been said to be showing improvement for over a week, though he has yet to progress to a rehab assignment. Manager Jayce Tingler indicated earlier this week that such an assignment is unlikely to happen until closer to the end of the month. While Nola is out, Victor Caratini will continue to function as the Padres' primary catcher.

Padres' Austin Nola: Weeks away from rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Nola (knee) won't start a rehab assignment for at least a few weeks, the Associated Press reports.

Tingler indicated late last week that Nola has been showing improvement and is on the verge of ramping up baseball activities, but it appears that the backstop remains weeks away from being able to participate in a minor-league rehab stint. That means his return to the big club will happen no sooner than early July.

Padres' Austin Nola: Showing improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) is experiencing less swelling and has shown better mobility, and he could ramp up his baseball activities soon, the Associated Press reports.

Nola went on the injured list May 28 due to what was termed a "light" knee sprain, but it sounds like he hasn't been able to do much in term of baseball activities to this point. However, there remains a chance that he could return to the big club by the end of June if he is indeed able to start ramping up in the near future. Victor Caratini has been filling in as the Padres' primary catcher in Nola's absence.

Padres' Austin Nola: Trending toward late June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nola (knee) isn't expected to return from the injured list until late June or early July, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Nola has gotten into just 18 games this season, as he missed most of April with a broken finger before spraining his knee in late May. The Padres previously said he needed a week or two before he's cleared to return, but it now looks like he'll need at least two or three. Victor Caratini is the primary catcher in his absence.

Padres' Austin Nola: Not yet ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Jayce Tingler said Friday that Nola (knee) still needs "a week or two" before he's cleared to return, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Nola has been on the 10-day injured list since May 28 due to a slight knee sprain. It's not yet clear whether the 31-year-old will require a rehab assignment before he returns to the Padres, but Victor Caratini should continue to serve as the primary catcher in his absence.
