The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 23-year old righty starting pitcher Aaron Nola on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained right elbow. Nola has pitched in 20 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 6-9 with a 4.78 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He has given up 116 hits and 29 walks while whiffing 121 batters in his 111 innings pitched this year. He has now pitched in 33 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 12-11 with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. The Phillies might be smart to just shut Nola down for the year as he is a big part of their future plans.
