The Phillies on Tuesday announced the signing of No. 7 overall draft pick Aaron Nola, a pitcher out of LSU.

The news was announced by Assistant GM Marti Wolever. Nola, who turned 21 last week, went 11-1 with a 1.47 ERA and 134/27 K/BB ratio over 116 innings this past season at LSU. The previous year, he was 12-1 with 1.57 ERA and 122/18 K/BB ratio in 126 innings.

In 2011, he was selected out of high school by the Toronto Blues in the 22nd round of the 2011 draft, but ultimately decided to forgo the offer and attend college. He is a two-time SEC Pitcher of the year, earning the title both his  junior and senior seasons at LSU.
