As a reminder, the move comes just a few weeks removed from Ruben Amaro Jr. saying that Phillies fans "don't understand the game" when they clamored for Nola to join the Phillies.
Now Nola, a 22-year-old right-hander who was drafted seventh overall out of LSU in 2014, will give the organization and fans a glimpse into the future of the club as it looks to rebuild.
In all, Nola compiled a 10-4 record with a 2.39 ERA across two levels this year, striking out 92 batters and walking just 18 in 109 1/3 innings of work.
The Phillies will look to Nola to inject some life into a team currently on pace to lose 111 games this year, though his innings are likely to be closely monitored since it is still just his first full season in the pros.
Nola will bring to the rotation a fastball that reaches the mid-90s paired with a curveball and change-up. The thing that stands out for the young righty, however, is his command. With the ability to command all of his pitches, the Phillies hope that Nola will be able to quickly adjust to life in the majors.
Whether he does that or not will have huge ramifications on the Phillies' future, as Nola is seen as a key cog in the organization's rebuild.
The future of the Phillies appears one step closer, and one thing is for certain, the crowd at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday is likely to be more lively than it has been all season.
