Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Big improvements in curveball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta's hot start can be traced to a number of improvements in his curveball, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The curve has improved in just about every way possible. It's now dropping by 10 inches after dropping just 5.7 inches last year. Its horizontal movement is up from 3.3 inches to 6.3 inches. Pivetta's now throwing it at 80 mph after it averaged 77 mph in the first half of 2017. The changes stem from a change in grip after he decided to copy the spiked grip used by teammate Aaron Nola. Pivetta has also quieted his hands during his windup, which has helped not just the curve but also his overall command, and he's now walking just 3.6 percent of the batters he faces. Pivetta's 2.57 ERA seems at first glance easy to dismiss as a small-sample fluke after his 6.02 ERA last year, but changes in the curve seem to be driving a legitimately improved performance from the young righty, and his 2.28 FIP backs up the idea that he's deserved his excellent results.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Turns in quality start versus Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed two runs on five hits and two walks across 6.1 innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Pirates. He struck out seven.

Pivetta threw an impressive 70 percent of his pitches for strikes, inducing 15 swinging strikes as he reached seven punchouts for the third time this year. His only major mistake came in the fifth inning, when Elias Diaz hit a two-run home run to center. Pivetta pitched well enough to win, but neither team found another run until Aaron Altherr's game-winning hit in the 11th inning. Though he's still won just once, the early returns have been excellent for Pivetta, who will take a 2.57 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP into his next scheduled outing against the Braves.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Turns in another strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (1-0) allowed one run on five hits over five innings and struck out two in Tuesday's win over the Braves. He did not factor into the decision.

Pivetta labored a bit, needing 98 pitches to make it through five innings and wasn't missing many bats with a season-low two strikeouts. That aside, the 25-year-old still turned in another strong outing and has a sterling 16:0 K:BB in 12.2 innings his past three starts. Pivetta will need to go deeper into games going forward to really pay dividends for fantasy owners -- he's made it through six innings in just one of his four starts -- but he's now got a 2.49 ERA and it's tough not to take notice. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Takes no-decision in brilliant outing against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta held the Reds to just two runs on five hits and no walks with seven strikeouts through seven innings but was stuck with a no-decision in Wednesday's start.

Pivetta was coming off 5.2 shutout innings with nine strikeouts in his last start. In 2017, Pivetta struggled mightily but had flashes of brilliance, with 140 strikeouts in 133 innings. Now, it looks like he's starting to put it together. Pivetta, critically, hasn't walked a batter in either of these past two starts. He walked 57 batters (3.9 BB/9) in his rough 2017 campaign, and if that control improvement proves to be real, Pivetta could do big things in 2018. It's too early to believe fully just yet -- these starts were against the Marlins and Reds, after all -- but Pivetta is becoming worthy of fantasy attention.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Earns win Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed no earned runs on four hits while striking out nine and walking none across 5.2 innings to earn a win Thursday against the Marlins.

Pivetta took advantage of a positive matchup against the Marlins and helped the Phillies win their home opener Thursday. After only working only four innings in his season debut, Pivetta was nearly able to record a quality start but was pulled after throwing 97 pitches. His ability to rack up strikeouts-- he recorded 140 in 133 innings last season-- is intriguing but it remains to be seen if he can consistently post solid ratios as he did today, as the Marlins figure to be one of the worst offenses in the league this season.
