PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Nola has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained lower back, the Phillies announced Monday. The transaction is retroactive to Friday.

“Aaron experienced soreness in his lower back during his start on Thursday,” Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said in a statement. “After receiving treatment over the last few days, the symptoms improved, but he still felt some tightness during his side session yesterday. Our hope and expectation is that this will not be a lengthy DL placement and that Aaron will miss only one or two starts.”

Nola, 23, is 2-0 with a 4.50 ERA in three starts this season.
