Nola will be on the bench for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Thursday.
Nola has started all five postseason games thus far but has had very little success at the plate, grabbing just a single hit. Jason Castro (jaw) will be the catcher in his absence.
Nola isn't starting Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Giants.
Nola went 2-for-4 with one run during Friday's matinee. Jason Castro will start behind the dish with Nola out of the lineup for Game 2.
Nola is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.
Nola sits for the second time in three games, giving way to Jason Castro behind the dish. With Nola slashing .189/.295/.358 since coming over in a trade with Seattle on Aug. 30, he could be in danger of falling into a timeshare at catcher with Castro heading into the postseason.
Nola is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.
Nola gets a breather after starting behind the plate in both of the past two games, allowing Jason Castro to catch for Dinelson Lamet in the series finale. Since being acquired from the Mariners on Aug. 30, Nola has gotten off to a slow start to his tenure with the Padres, slashing .208/.321/.396 over 14 games.
Nola will sit Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Nola has handled a heavy workload since joining the Padres in a trade from the Mariners at the deadline, as Wednesday's day off will be just his third since the move. Jason Castro starts behind the plate in his absence.
Nola went 1-for-4 with a home run, another run scored and four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.
He was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the first inning and then hit a three-run blast in the second inning to help San Diego score 10 runs in the first two frames alone. Nola now has two home runs and five RBI over his last two games.
Nola went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's loss to the Athletics.
Although the Padres were unable to keep up with the Athletics on the scoreboard Saturday, Nola continued his power surge as he now has three extra-base hits over the past two games. The 30-year-old should continue to play behind the dish in San Diego, but his defensive versatility should allow him to move around the infield if needed.
Nola has been taking reps at second and third base and could play any of the four infield positions, if needed, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Nola was acquired from the Mariners on Aug. 30 and has made each of his four starts at catcher since that time. However, he made two starts at first base earlier this season with the Mariners and also switched to third base during one contest. Nola figures to spend most of his time with San Diego at catcher, but his defensive versatility could allow him to get a few more at-bats over the course of the season with both Jason Castro and Luis Campusano (hand) in line for starts behind the plate.
Nola is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Angels.
Nola made his debut with the Padres on Monday and went 1-for-3 with a run and a walk. Jason Castro, a fellow trade acquisition, will start behind the plate and bat ninth Wednesday for the Friars.
Nola was traded from the Mariners to the Padres on Sunday in exchange for catcher Luis Torrens, among others, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Nola is the second catcher that the Padres traded for Sunday, but his defensive versatility throughout the infield should allow him to carve out a role in San Diego. Prior to sitting Sunday, Nola had started in 12 consecutive games for the Mariners and he's hit .306/.373/.531 with five home runs and 19 RBI to begin the season. Joseph Odom could take over as the new starting catcher in Seattle.
Nola is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

Nola went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's win over the Padres.
He did not enter the season with catcher eligibility (at least not in most leagues), but Nola gained it early on and has been among the top fantasy contributors at that position so far. The 30-year-old is up to a .315 average and .920 OPS through 25 games. Nola has been locked into the five hole for Seattle and Tom Murphy (foot) remains out indefinitely.
Nola went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.
Nola extended the Mariners' lead to 2-0 with his solo shot off Rangers starter Mike Minor in the second inning. The 30-year-old Nola has his safely in five straight games, going 8-for-20 (.400) with two homers, seven RBI and six runs scored in that span. The catcher is slashing .298/.344/.524 with four homers, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored in 24 games overall this year.
Nola went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and three runs in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.
Nola contributed to the Mariners' 10-run outburst with a third-inning RBI single that plated Kyle Lewis, and he was able to cross the plate himself on each of the three occasions he reached base.

Nola went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and four RBI during Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.
Nola gave the Mariners the first lead of the game with a two-out RBI single against Julio Urias in the first inning.

Nola is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Nola will retreat to the bench after starting five consecutive games at catcher, during which he went 4-for-20 with a solo home run and a double. Joseph Odom will spell Nola behind the dish.
Nola went 2-for-5 with a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.
Nola continues to generate surprising offensive numbers out of the catcher spot for manager Scott Servais, as Wednesday's production brought his season slash to an impressive .292/.346/.563 across 52 plate appearances. Nola now has a quartet of two-hit efforts in his last six games, a stretch during which he's laced six extra-base hits (four doubles, two home runs) and knocked in eight runs.
Nola (hand) went 1-for-5 in Monday's 10-2 win over the Rangers.

The 30-year-old catcher is hitting .308/.372/.538 with a homer, seven RBI and four runs scored in 12 contests this year. With Tom Murphy (foot) on the injured list, Nola figures to see most of the playing time behind the dish.
Nola (hand) is starting Monday against the Rangers.
Nola was on the bench for two consecutive games after being hit by a pitch in Friday's contest. However, he'll reclaim his spot behind the dish and bat fifth Monday. Nola is hitting .324/.395/.588 with six extra-base hits and seven RBI this season.
Nola (hand) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Nola's injured hand remains tender after he hurt it in Friday's series opener, but he'll still be available off the bench in an emergency, which suggests the Mariners are optimistic he'll avoid a trip to the injured list. Joe Hudson will step in behind the dish for a second straight day in his stead.
