Aaron Nola surrendered two runs on four hits over 2 2/3 innings

Aaron Nola surrendered two runs on four hits over 2 2/3 innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League start against the Astros.
The right-hander struggled with his command in this one, issuing three free passes while striking out two. He hasn't been as sharp as we're used to seeing this spring, compiling a 5.19 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 8 2/3 innings, though he has racked up 11 strikeouts.
Nola will reportedly throw 90 pitches, and this way, the Phillies will be able to monitor his workload in what could be his final appearance for the start of the season. The right-hander is coming off an excellent 2018 season, and considering he doesn't turn 26 until June 4, it's not insane to think he's going to be just as good -- or better -- in 2019.

The Philadelphia Phillies havenât had multiple National League All-Star Game representatives since 2013, when Cliff Lee and Domonic Brown represented the team at Citi Field. That streak will almost certainly be snapped in 2019.
And it could be snapped in a big way.
Aaron Nola, who was an All-Star for the first time in 2018, enters the 2019 season among the favorites to win the National League Cy Young Award. General manager Matt Klentak added three players this offseason who were All-Stars in 2018; Bryce Harper, Jean Segura and J.T. Realmuto. Both Harper and Segura are multiple-time All-Stars, and Realmuto stands to become even better offensively now that he plays his home games outside of Marlins Park (více...)

Aaron Nola was in the dugout on Saturday afternoon when a sold-out Spectrum Field greeted Bryce Harper with a standing ovation. He could feel the crowd's energy from his perch on the top step. But this was just a Grapefruit League game. Imagine, Nola was asked Sunday, what the scene will be later... (více...)
