GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said Nola is close to being ready for the majors, the Phillies' official site reports. "I don't think he's that far away, but when he's ready he'll be here," Amaro said. "Just because our rotation is very poor right now, it doesn't mean we're going to bring him to the big leagues for that reason. We're going to bring him when it's time for him developmentally."
Interim manager Pete Mackanin said he will "be careful" with Herrera's playing time against lefties and pitchers that have a four-pitch mix that are different speeds, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Henry will transfer to La Salle, NBC Sports reports. He put up 6.0 points and 3.6 rebounds for South Carolina before getting suspended for the rest of the season for conduct detrimental to the team in February.
