The Philadelphia Phillies have begun the process of picking up or declining player options. They have until Thursday to complete the process.
The Phils made a pair of moves official.
As was expected, the Phillies have picked up the option for starting pitcher Aaron Nola. Nola will make $16MM for the 2023 season. Nola was 11-13 with a 3.25 ERA, 235 K, and a .96 WHIP in 205 innings pitched. The 29-year old was 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA in five postseason starts.
Also as expected, both parties declined the $15MM option on pitcher Zach Eflin making him a free agent. Eflin was 3-5 with a 4.04 ERA, 65 K, a 1.123 WHIP in 75.2 innings pitched. He spilt his time as starter and a reliever.
The Phillies have yet to officially make a decision on Jean Segura. However, the 32-year old recently took to his Instagram thanking Philadelphia.
