Aaron Nola inks 7-year deal to stay with Phillies

“Aaron has proven to be one of the best and most durable pitchers in our game for a number of years now, and when considering his leadership abilities and his character, it was very important for us to keep him a part of the Phillies family.”

Philadelphia selected Nola with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft. He made his debut with the Phillies in July 2015 and became one of the mainstays in the rotation.

He had a 4.46 ERA in 32 appearances this season along with 202 strikeouts. It’s the third straight year he struck out at least 200 batters. He finished fourth in National League Cy Young Award voting in 2022.

Now that Nola is locked up, it leaves only a few big-name pitchers on the market. Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Blake Snell, Sonny Gray, Jordan Montgomery and Eduardo Rodriguez are among those set to earn big deals. Shohei Ohtani is also on the market, but he will likely be relegated to hitting only in 2024 due to an arm injury.
