The Phillies are getting some potential good news on the injury front, but lets digest it all than wait and see.
The Phillies are hearing good things about starting pitcher Aaron Nola. The 23-year-old missed the final two months of this season (after making 20 starts), suffering from sprains and strains of ligaments and tendons in his pitching elbow. Instead of surgery, the Phils shut Nola down, and hoped rest would do the trick.
“After completing a full throwing program, and getting his side work in, he feels 100 percent healthy and ready for spring training,” Nola’s agent, Joe Longo, said this week in an email. “So, he is starting his normally planned offseason program.”
