WASHINGTON -- As expected, Phillies first round pick Aaron Nola, the righthander from LSU, is moving up another level in the minor league system. Nola is going to be promoted from advanced Single-A Clearwater to Double-A Reading and will start there on Wednesday at home against Harrisburg.
In seven appearances, including six starts for the Threshers, he went 2-3 with a 3.16 ERA. Nola had 30 strikeouts and allowed five walks in 31 1/3 innings.
The No. 7 overall selection in June’s draft, Nola threw 116 1/3 innings for LSU and the Phillies are conscious of his work load.
He never pitched more than five innings in a game for the Threshers.
