Victoria RHP Nick Pivetta expected to make big-league debut with Phillies Wednesday


The Philadelphia Phillies placed right-hander Aaron Nola on the disabled list on Monday with a lower-back strain, and reporter Matt Breen is among those predicting that Victoria righty Nick Pivetta will get the call from the triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs and make his big-league debut on Wednesday against the visiting Miami Marlins.

Pivetta, 24, a Lambrick Park graduate, has a 3-0 record and a 0.95 earned run average in three starts with the IronPigs this season, and has been mentioned as a potential call-up during previous injury situations with the Philadelphia starting rotation.
