Pivetta was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

With Aaron Nola (back) expected to make his next start Sunday, Pivetta was sent back to Lehigh Valley as he is no longer needed as the Phillies' fifth starter. The 24-year-old struggled across four starts with the big club, going 0-2 with a 5.12 ERA across 19.2 innings. He'll continue to serve as depth at Triple-A.
