"Each of these players was instrumental in his team's regular-season and postseason success," Raymond Richardson, Pitcher of the Year Award co-chair, said in a news release. "They maintained their impressive numbers throughout the season, and they're going to make it difficult to choose a winner."
Nola was voted the SEC Pitcher of the Year for the second year in 2014 after going 11-1 with a 1.47 ERA and 134 strikeouts. Philadelphia picked Nola with the 7th overall pick of the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft earlier this month.
