Reading righthander Aaron Nola could make as many as four more starts before the end of the season. Nola, the Phillies first round pick from LSU, had an impressive debut for during Wednesday’s win over Harrisburg. He allowed six hits in five innings, struck out four and walked one. Nola threw 72 pitches, 47 for strikes.

Counting the 116 1/3 innings he threw at LSU this season, Nola has totaled 152 2/3 innings. The Phillies have been limiting him to five innings per start.

“He has approximately 20 innings left and it could be four more starts if it goes in a straight line,” said Joe Jordan, the Phillies director of player development.  “If there are some stressful outings, we may back off on that.”

Nola’s next start hasn’t been announced but he is likely to get an extra day’s rest.
