Eickhoff (biceps) will be shut down for at least three weeks, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
He was placed on the injured list with biceps tendinitis Monday. If he won't throw for three weeks, that means he won't be returning to the big-league rotation until at least late July.
Eickhoff was placed on the 10-day injured list with right biceps tendinitis Monday.
Eickhoff allowed 12 runs and seven homers in just four innings over his last two appearances, which can possibly be explained by the biceps injury. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss. Edgar Garcia was called up to take his place in the bullpen in a corresponding move.
Eickhoff surrendered five runs on six hits and a walk over his lone inning of relief in Sunday's 15-1 loss to the Braves.
Eickhoff had lined up for two starts entering the week, but he ultimately missed out on the two step since he was removed from the Philadelphia rotation after surrendering seven runs in three innings to the Diamondbacks on June 10. Unfortunately for those that included him in weekly lineups, Eickhoff still did plenty of damage to fantasy managers' ratios while mopping up in the blowout loss to Atlanta. The Phillies have yet to decide on a permanent fifth starter, but Eickhoff probably doesn't rank high among the team's potential options after serving up a whopping 18 home runs in his last seven appearances.
Eickhoff is no longer a member of Philadelphia's starting rotation, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Eickhoff was shelled by the Diamondbacks on Monday, allowing seven runs over three-plus innings, so the Phillies have elected to move him to the bullpen. It remains to be seen who will take Eickhoff's spot in the rotation.
Eickhoff (3-4) took the loss Monday, surrendering seven runs on five hits -- all five of them home runs -- and two walks over three-plus innings while striking out two as the Phillies were downed 13-8 by the Diamondbacks.
Arizona's first three batters of the night all took Eickhoff yard. then Eduardo Escobar and Alex Avila chased him from the game in the fourth inning with two-run shots. The D-backs ended up setting a club record with eight total homers, while the two teams combined for an MLB-record 13 long balls. Eickhoff will take a 5.02 ERA, 50:17 K:BB and ghastly 2.5 HR/9 through 57.1 innings into his next start Sunday in Atlanta.
Eickhoff (3-3) allowed three runs in six innings and picked up the win against San Diego on Tuesday, giving up four hits and striking out five. He did not walk a batter.
Handed the task of snapping Philadelphia's five-game losing streak, Eickhoff was up to the challenge, earning both his first quality start and first win in nearly a month. He did so by limiting the Padres to five baserunners and allowing only one ball to leave the yard after having surrendered multiple home runs in each of his previous four starts. After an effective April in which he posted a 2.12 ERA in 17 innings of work, Eickhoff struggled with a 5.17 ERA in 31 innings in May. He'll look to build upon a positive start to June when he faces Arizona on Monday in his next scheduled start.
Eickhoff (2-3) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out four across 6.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cardinals.
Eickhoff's outing was ruined by the long ball, as he surrendered three homers that accounted for all four of his earned runs. He's struggled to keep the ball in the yard of late, as he's now allowed all 10 of his home runs for the season in his past four starts. As a result, he's surrendered 17 earned runs across 18.1 innings in that span, with his ERA on the campaign rising from 1.50 to 4.10. He'll look to snap out of the slump in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at San Diego.
Eickhoff didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-4 win over the Brewers, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over three innings while striking out one.
Christian Yelich and Orlando Arcia both took Eickhoff deep, but the Phillies rallied in the middle innings to take the right-hander off the hook for his third loss. He's now given up multiple homers in three straight starts, not lasting longer than five innings in any of them, and the rough stretch has inflated Eickhoff's ERA to 3.86. He'll try to turn things around in his next outing Thursday, at home against the Cardinals.
Eickhoff allowed four earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five across five innings Sunday against the Rockies. He did not factor into the decision.
Eickhoff allowed three home runs, accounting for all four of his earned runs in the contest. His skills were solid otherwise, as he managed to generate 15 swinging strikes and started 13 of the 22 batters he faced with a strike. However, his struggles with the long ball overshadow any positive work, as he's now allowed five home runs across his last two starts -- a span of nine innings. He'll look to be more effective in keeping the ball in the yard in his next start but will face a tough test at Milwaukee on Friday.
Eickhoff (2-2) allowed five earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two to take the loss Tuesday against the Brewers.
Eickhoff was burned by the long ball -- he surrendered a three-run home run to Yasmani Grandal and a two-run shot to Ryan Braun -- in his worst start of the season. However, those were the first two home runs he's allowed this season, and despite the rough outing, his 2.65 ERA and 1.15 WHIP are indicative of how well he had pitched prior to the start. Despite the strong results, it's worth noting that Eickhoff continued to issue free passes Tuesday, and has now allowed 3.4 BB/9 across 34 innings. He'll look to rebound in his next start, likely to come on Sunday at home against the Rockies.
Eickhoff (2-1) earned the win against the Cardinals on Wednesday by allowing only three hits over eight scoreless innings. He struck out four and walked three.
Eickhoff turned in his best performance of the season as he didn't allow a baserunner to reach second base until Yadier Molina's ground-rule double during the eighth inning. The 28-year-old has given up only one run on eight hits in his last three starts (20 innings). Eickhoff lines up to face the Brewers early next week.
Eickhoff didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Nationals, allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out seven across five innings.
Eickhoff was on track to record his second consecutive quality start but was removed prior to the sixth inning at just 87 pitches -- likely a precaution given his injury history. The right-hander has been sharp in four appearances (three starts) since earning a promotion in mid-April, compiling a 2.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 22 innings. Eickhoff will look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Cardinals.
Eickhoff (1-1) threw seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits with six strikeouts and a walk in a victory against the Marlins on Friday.
This was only Eickhoff's second start of the year, but he also has a four-inning scoreless relief appearance to his name. Eickhoff struggled in his other start, giving up four runs and four walks. On Friday, he threw 57 of 88 pitches for strikes, including 15 called strikes. Eickhoff is 1-1 with a 2.12 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 17 innings this season. His next start is scheduled to be Friday against the Nationals.
Eickhoff (0-1) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out eight across six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rockies.
Eickhoff danced in and out of trouble in his first start of the season, but handled Coors fairly well by allowing only two extra-base hits and no home runs. He entered the sixth inning having allowed only one earned run but ultimately let the first four runners he faced reach base, leading to a three-run inning. He'll be in a much better environment to succeed in his next start, which comes at home against Miami.
Eickhoff is expected to move into the Phillies' rotation Sunday against the Rockies after Philadelphia optioned Nick Pivetta to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Though it was Nick Pivetta who came away with the victory in Tuesday's 14-3 win over the Mets, Eickhoff was the far more impressive of the two pitchers while working in long relief. In what marked his 2019 debut for the Phillies after he opened the season in the minors, Eickhoff struck out six and gave up three hits and no walks over four scoreless frames to notch the save. Pivetta, meanwhile, failed to record a quality start for the fourth time in as many turns and recorded more walks than strikeouts in what was somehow his best outing of the season, prompting the Phillies to go in another direction at the back end of the rotation. After the lengthy relief appearance, Eickhoff should be reasonably stretched out heading into his start this weekend, though he could struggle to find success while pitching at Coors Field.
Eickhoff tossed four scoreless innings of relief Tuesday, allowing three hits and striking out six, to record his first career save in a 14-3 rout of the Mets.
The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley earlier in the day and immediately thrust into action, albeit in a mop-up role. Eickhoff threw 59 pitches (38 strikes), and despite the strong outing he could immediately be optioned back down for a fresh bullpen arm as he won't be available to pitch again for a few days.
Eickhoff was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.
Injuries, including a lat strain and carpal tunnel syndrome, stole most of Eickhoff's 2018 campaign. The later issue popped up again in spring, delaying his Grapefruit League debut and causing him to start the season in the minors. He's been an effective back-end starter in the past, and could be one again if called upon this season, but he looks to be in a long-relief role for now, as Drew Anderson was the player optioned in a corresponding move.
The Phillies optioned Eickhoff to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Eickhoff's spring training debut was delayed by a recurrence of symptoms relating to the carpal tunnel surgery he required in January, but he returned to action March 11 and looked good over three Grapefruit League appearances, giving up four runs across nine innings while striking out 12. Because Eickhoff had missed the majority of the 2018 campaign while recovering from a lat strain, the Phillies likely want to see him pitch on a regular basis in the minors before giving him an extended look at the major-league level. Eickhoff could be the top choice for a callup in the event either Zach Eflin and/or Vince Velasquez flop as the Phillies' back-end starters.
Eickhoff (wrist) will make his spring debut Monday against the Rays, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
He has been dealing with a wrist injury in camp, but completed a simulated game last week and is ready to make his spring debut. Eickhoff is competing for a rotation spot, but seems likely to be the odd man out to start the season. However, even if he starts the year at Triple-A, he could spend most of the year in the majors if he pitches well in 2019.
Eickhoff (wrist) will throw a simulated game Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
After missing nearly the entirety of 2018 with a lat strain and carpal tunnel syndrome, Eickhoff has remained bothered by injuries this spring. He's yet to get into a Grapefruit League game due to recurring symptoms from his carpal tunnel surgery, but if Wednesday's outing goes well that could be his next step. Eickhoff can't be ruled out of the Phillies' rotation picture, but his injury risk and the development of Vince Velasquez and Zach Eflin in his absence would seem to make him a long shot.
