Counting Down The 20 Best MLB Players Under 25

19. Aaron Nola – Philadelphia Phillies – RHP


This may be a bit of a stretch, but Nola’s numbers reveal a better pitcher than his ERA and record would convey. He holds a career 9.0 SO/9, walks few batters, and has an arsenal that should help establish him as a solid pitcher in the big leagues. Before an elbow injury ended his season, Nola showed promise despite his high ERA. Early starts in his career show the true promise of Nola’s eventual path to the top of the rotation.
