San Diego Padres catcher Austin Nola is not in Wednesday's starting lineup versus the Cincinnati Reds.
Nola got the nod behind the plate Tuesday but will sit in favor of Brett Sullivan on Wednesday afternoon. While neither backstop is hitting much at all, it's been a particularly disappointing season for Nola who is hitting just .149 with one homer and a .493 OPS across 79 plate appearances.
Padres catcher Austin Nola hit his first home run of the season Sunday, going 1-for-4 with a two-run shot in a 6-4 win vs. the Giants.
Nola has really struggled this year, hitting a paltry .156 but he does at least have enough early walks to boost his OBP to a palatable .280. For those in two-catcher leagues, Nola should be in consideration but outside of that, until he starts hitting more consistently, he is a hard pass.
