  • Phillies Still In Play For Yoshinobu Yamamoto

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    The Philadelphia Phillies just signed a seven-year, $172 million contract extension with starting pitcher Aaron Nola, but Philadelphia Inquirer's Alex Coffey reported Monday that the team will likely try to sign one more starting pitcher this offseason. This includes Japanese right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto, who was officially posted Monday. Bringing in both Nola and Yamamoto would definitely sure up the team's rotation but would be costly, as the 25-year-old is expected to sign this season's richest contract for a starting pitcher. While the Phillies are expected to be "pretty aggressive" in pursuing him, they will only push for a deal if they feel the price is right, as Yamamoto will surely have a number of suitors.

    Even after officially reuniting with Aaron Nola on a seven-year, $172MM deal earlier today, the Phillies are still in the hunt for Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Alex Coffey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.  A source tells Coffey that the Phils will be “pretty aggressive” in going after the Japanese right-hander, “but if they don't settle on the…

  • Aaron Nola Signs Seven-Year Extension

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola has reached a long term extension with the organization. The 30-year-old has agreed to a seven-year, $172 million extension on Sunday. The right-hander went 12-9 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and a 202/45 K/BB ratio over 193 2/3 innings in 2023. He has been a reliable option for the Phillies since breaking into the league in 2017. Nola has thrown more than 180 innings in each of the last five seasons, excluding the shortened 2020 campaign. The deal is pending a physical, but it sounds like Nola is going to stick around in Philly for a long time.

    Starting pitching is a clear priority for the Red Sox. Boston’s new chief baseball officer Craig Breslow acknowledged as much last week, although they’re certainly not alone in that pursuit. That could extend to the top end of the market. Jeff Passan of ESPN wrote on Tuesday that the Sox were targeting front-line starting pitching.…

  • Yankees Showing Interest In Aaron Nola, Yoshinobu Yamamoto

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    The New York Yankees are among the most active teams in the starting pitching market this offseason, and sources are saying they are showing early interest in free-agent right-handers Aaron Nola and Yoshinobu Yamamoto. Nola is expected to decline his $20.3 million qualifying offer from the Philadelphia Phillies by the deadline early next week, while the Orix Buffaloes of Nippon Professional Baseball announced last week that Yamamoto will officially be posted for MLB teams this winter. Nola is more of a known commodity and reliable workhorse, while the 25-year-old Yamamoto has an impressive 1.72 ERA in seven seasons in Japan. He had a 1.16 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 176 innings to just 28 walks in 171 innings in 2023 and will be highly coveted on the open market.

  • Braves, Cardinals Interested In Aaron Nola

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    The Atlanta Braves and St. Louis Cardinals are among the teams showing early interest in free-agent right-hander Aaron Nola, according to sources. Nola has until Tuesday to decide on whether he will accept the $20.3 million qualifying offer the Philadelphia Phillies extended to him last week. He's expected to reject the offer in hopes of securing a more lucrative multi-year deal on the open market. The 30-year-old is reportedly "close" with Braves pitching coach Rich Kranitz, who served as the Phillies' bullpen coach in 2016 and 2017 before being elevated to pitching coach in 2018. Nola had somewhat of a down year in the 2023 regular season, going 12-9 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 202 strikeouts in 193 2/3 innings. Still, he was dominant in the postseason and will be one of the more coveted starting pitchers on the market this offseason.

  • Aaron Nola Has Unique Free-Agent Appeal

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell is likely to win the National League Cy Young in 2023, but his highest single-season innings total of 180 2/3 innings matches free-agent right-hander Aaron Nola's lowest in his last five full seasons. The 30-year-old would be an attractive free agent in any offseason, but the way the game is trending, he might have even more appeal now than he would have 10 years ago. Nola is second in innings pitched to only Gerrit Cole in the last six seasons. The last time he was on the injured list was in 2017, and the last time he was on the IL for an arm-related injury was in 2016. He threw 193 2/3 innings in 2023. Only five pitchers worked more than 200 frames in 2023. He relies on a four-seam fastball that has averaged just 93 mph since 2020.

  • Aaron Nola Receives Qualifying Offer

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola has been issued a qualifying offer from the club ahead of his potential free agency this winter. Should Nola accept the offer, he will play the 2024 season under a one-year, $20.325 million contract after playing out a four-year $45 million contract that bought out his remaining arbitration years. The right-hander has been a steady force atop the Phillies' rotation since the 2017 season but did have a shaky 2023 season that included a 4.46 ERA across 32 starts. Nola also tossed a superior 2.35 ERA across four starts and 23 innings in the 2023 postseason before the Phillies bowed out to the D-backs in the NLCS. Nola is likely to decline the qualifying offer while searching for a multi-year deal on the open market.

  • Aaron Nola Fantastic In Game 2 Victory

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola was on point in the easy 10-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Nola improved to 3-0 this postseason by tossing six shutout innings, allowing only three hits, walking none and striking out seven. The 30-year-old kept the Snakes off balance all night and was in complete command of his arsenal with the home crowd behind him. Nola has been absolutely dominant so far this postseason after a slightly disappointing regular season, going 3-0 with a 0.96 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 19 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings in his three starts. Depending on how the rest of this series goes, his next start could be in the World Series.

    The Philadelphia Phillies are going back to their aces for Games 2 and 3 of the Division Series against the Atlanta Braves. For Game 2, Zack Wheeler will take the mound against Max Fried of the Braves. In Game 3, Aaron Nola will pitch for the Phils, but it is not yet known who he will face. In the Wild Card round, Wheeler and Nola showed why they have been considered one of the best one-two punches in baseball, throwing a combined 13 innings of one-run ball to lead the Phillies to a sweep over the Miami Marlins. The Braves are a different beast, but if the duo can pitch up to their potential it could mean a date in the Championship Series for the Phillies.

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola will start Game 2 against the Marlins in Wednesday's wild-card matchup. Braxton Garrett will oppose him on the mound. The 30-year-old continued his string of inconsistent seasons in 2023, going 12-9 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 25.5% strikeout rate in 32 starts over 193 2/3 innings pitched. He faced the Marlins three times during the regular season and did not fare well, allowing 13 runs (12 earned) in 16 IP with 18 strikeouts, no walks, and five home runs.

  • Aaron Nola Won't Pitch Again In Regular Season

    Headshot for Aaron Nola

    Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola won't pitch again in the 2023 regular season, with his next start coming in Game 2 of the wild-card series a week from Wednesday. Right-hander Zack Wheeler will get the nod in Game 1. The team's Game 3 starter will depend on how the first two games of the series go, according to manager Rob Thomson. It will most likely be left-hander Ranger Suarez for Game 3, unless the Phillies need him out of the bullpen before then. The Phillies are locked into the top wild-card spot and will give Nola some extra rest before the start of the postseason. Nola struck out 200-plus batters for the fifth time in his career in 2023, but he also had a 4.46 ERA (4.03 FIP) and 1.15 WHIP in 193 2/3 innings over his 32 starts.
