Philadelphia Phillies Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Manager Pete Mackanin said he is pleased with how Nola has been throwing thus far in camp, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.
Impact: Nola was diagnosed with a sprained UCL last July which ended his season early. He was given a platelet-rich plasma injection and rehabbed his injury during the offseason. Nola has said he is fully healthy, but he hasn't truly tested his arm yet. That will happen when he starts pitching in games this spring. His first appearance in game action should come within the next week. He's a risky investment this year given his elbow issue, but he could return significant value if he finds his form from early last season.
News: Arano (elbow) has a right UCL sprain and will be shut down for four weeks, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.
Impact: Arano had experienced soreness in his elbow for weeks, but this is tough news for the 22-year-old. It's unlikely he'll be able to report to camp this year after receiving a plasma-rich platelet injection yesterday in Philadelphia. The reliever posted a 2.26 ERA over 46 minor league games last season and was promoted to Double-A Reading in August. Arano will try to get back on track when he returns later this spring.
News: Thompson (wrist) successfully threw an indoor bullpen session Wednesday, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.
Impact: The young right-hander has been held back from pitching activities while dealing with soreness in his right wrist. Thompson made 10 starts for the Phillies last season, posting a 5.70 ERA and a 32:28 K:BB ratio. Expect him to begin the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, barring any major injuries to the starting rotation.
