Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta will transition into a bullpen role for the Phillies, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies signed Drew Smyly on Friday and are inserting him into the starting rotation, bumping Pivetta to the bullpen. The 26-year-old should be available to pitch this weekend since Wednesday's start lasted only 2.1 innings due to a rain delay. Pivetta has a 5.74 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 58:25 K:BB through 69 innings this season.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Rain-shortened outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta fired 2.1 hitless innings during which he allowed four walks and recorded four strikeouts Wednesday against the Dodgers. He did not factor into the decision.

Pivetta ran into major trouble in the first frame, walking three consecutive batters to load the bases after retiring just one Dodger. He avoided major trouble by setting down the next two men to come to the plate, though he still allowed an earned run. Pivetta had his start cut short by a lengthy rain delay, but should take the ball next on Tuesday at Detroit in a favorable matchup.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Takes another loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (4-4) allowed three runs on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts across five innings while taking a loss against the Nationals on Friday.

The 26-year-old pitched much better than he did in any of his last three outings. Pivetta didn't give up a homer Friday, which is a big deal because he had tossed up nine homers in his last four appearances. However, he was still saddled with his third loss in his last four starts, and his ERA barely decreased. Pivetta now has a 5.81 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, .293 batting average against and 54 strikeouts in 66.2 innings. He is schedule to pitch next at home against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Hurt by homers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (4-3) was dealt the loss Wednesday in Atlanta after surrendering six runs (five earned) on five hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out four and walked one.

Pivetta pitched relatively well for much of the evening but struggled with runners on base, giving up a pair of three-run homers to sink the performance. The 26-year-old heads into the All-Star break with a 5.84 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 52:19 K:BB through 11 starts.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Missing out on two-start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Braves, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Pivetta was initially lined up to start Tuesday's series opener in Atlanta, but the Phillies will take advantage of Monday's off day and instead flip the right-hander with ace Aaron Nola. The change will result in Pivetta missing out on a two-start week, with Nola now expected to take the hill a second time in the Phillies' final game before the All-Star break Sunday versus the Mets.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Allows two more homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta allowed four earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out three across 5.2 innings Wednesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

Pivetta consistently worked around danger, allowing at least one baserunner in each of his six innings. However, through five frames, he'd limited the damage to two solo home runs. The real issues came in the sixth inning, when he walked the first two batters he faced prior to allowing an RBI single and double. Pivetta has been uninspiring in his last two starts, allowing 10 earned runs across 11 innings while recording five strikeouts and walks apiece. The team likely needs him to stick in the rotation due to their lack of depth, but his struggles are still noteworthy. He'll look to improve in his next start, a tough road matchup against the Braves.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Hit hard by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (4-2) allowed six earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two across 5.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Nationals.

Pivetta struggled in nearly every facet Thursday, as he was taken deep twice -- once apiece Kurt Suzuki and Anthony Rendon -- and walked more batters than he struck out. He wasn't deceptive, generating just nine swinging strikes on 92 pitches. After pitching fairly well through his first three starts since recalled on May 28, Pivetta has now allowed 10 earned runs across his last 12 innings, allowing five long balls in that span. He'll look to get back on track Wednesday at home against the Mets.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Listed as Thursday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies list Pivetta as their probable starter for Thursday's series finale against the Nationals.

Initially lined up to start Wednesday, Pivetta was bumped back a day in the schedule on account of postponements Monday and Tuesday. Though Aaron Nola would have been available to face Washington on Thursday on his normal four days' rest, his recent struggles might have prompted manager Gabe Kapler to keep Pivetta ahead of the ace in the pitching order. Pivetta has been mostly stellar in his four starts since returning from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, posting a 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB in 26.2 innings.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Bumped from Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta won't start in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Two straight postponements to begin the series in Washington means Zach Eflin and Jake Arrieta will start in Wednesday's twin bill. The Phillies have yet to announce their extended rotation plans, but Pivetta figures to take the mound Thursday in the series finale or in Friday's series opener versus the Marlins.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Escapes with no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta struck out six bbut didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-8 loss to Atlanta, giving up four runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 6.2 innings.

The right-hander was effective early and carried a 5-1 lead into the sixth inning, but once Atlanta's bats got rolling neither Pivetta nor the bullpen could slow the Braves down. He'll take a 5.00 ERA and 43:12 K:BB over 45 innings into his next start Wednesday, on the road against the Nationals.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Goes distance versus Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (4-1) surrendered one run on six hits in a complete game to earn the victory against the Reds on Saturday. He struck out six and walked none.

Pivetta delivered the first complete game of his career by pouring in the strikes, with 71 of his 105 pitches finding the zone. The 26-year-old has strung together his two best starts of the season and has allowed one run on nine hits across his last 15 innings. Pivetta will look to continue that trend next weekend versus the Braves.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Posts first quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta completed six scoreless innings against the Dodgers on Sunday but did not factor into the decision. He allowed three hits and no walks while striking out nine.

Pivetta dominated the vaunted Dodgers lineup but did not garner any support from a Phillies offense that was stymied by opposing starter Rich Hill. Nonetheless, this was by far the best appearance of the year for Pivetta, who entered the game in danger of losing his spot in the rotation after posting a 7.71 ERA through his first five starts. The nine strikeouts and six innings pitched were season highs for the 26-year-old, and Sunday marked the first time this season that he did not issue a walk. With another start almost certainly secured, Pivetta will face the Reds on Saturday in his next scheduled outing.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Slated for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta will start Sunday against the Dodgers, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pivetta will stick in the big-league rotation for at least one more start after picking up the win in his return to the rotation Tuesday against the Cardinals, allowing three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings in that outing. Whether he sticks in the rotation beyond Sunday could depend on how the right-hander performs.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Earns win in return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (3-1) allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Pivetta got off to a rocky start, surrendering homers to two of the first four batters of the game. However, he settled in from there and held the Cardinals scoreless for the remainder of his outing. Pivetta's continued struggles with walks and home runs jeopardize his chances of sustained success, but he may have finished well enough Tuesday to earn himself another start. Manager Gabe Kapler has yet to confirm his rotation plans, but Pivetta tentatively lines up for a second start Sunday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Will start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pivetta and Vince Velasquez were both candidates to start Tuesday, but Pivetta will have the opportunity with the Phillies wanting to keep Velasquez in the bullpen. Pivetta struggled in his four outings in the majors this season with 17 runs allowed and a 16:8 K:BB over 18.1 innings, and has been at Triple-A since mid-April. The 26-year-old has fared much better at Lehigh Valley with a 3.41 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 12.2 K/9.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Could come up to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta is one of two candidates, along with Vince Velasquez, to start Tuesday against the Cardinals, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies have an opening in the rotation after demoting Cole Irvin to Triple-A, and it will be one of Pivetta or Velasquez. Pivetta has a 3.41 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 37 innings through six starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but he has also walked at least three batters in every start he has made at Triple-A this season. Manager Gabe Kapler noted Wednesday that Velasquez, who is on the 10-day injured list with a forearm strain, would be a good fit in the bullpen and went out of his way to say that Velasquez doesn't automatically get to return to the rotation when he is healthy, but there has also been speculation that Pivetta could move to the bullpen at some point this season.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Bullpen transition considered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta is being considered for a move to the bullpen, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pivetta was demoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley after getting lit up to the tune of an 8.35 ERA in his first four starts of the season. In two turns at the Triple-A level, he has a 3.75 ERA and a 46.0 percent strikeout rate. A move to the bullpen would eliminate any need to face a lineup a third time, something he's struggled with so far (6.53 ERA). There's no guarantee the move will happen, as manager Gabe Kapler referred to the idea simply as, "something that we're discussing and brainstorming."

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Strikes out 14 in second MiLB start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta struck out 14 over six innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley in its 6-5 win Sunday over Buffalo. He gave up one run on three hits and three walks in the 101-pitch outing.

Pivetta has racked up 23 punchouts through his first two starts at Triple-A, but it's probably too early to say that he's solved the command and control problems that plagued him prior to being demoted to the minors. He kept the ball in the yard Sunday but allowed a home run in his previous turn with Lehigh Valley and has also issued three walks in both of those turns. Moreover, with back-end starters Zach Eflin, Vince Velasquez and Jerad Eickhoff all pitching well at the moment for the Phillies, there's no real impetus for the organization to rush Pivetta back to the big leagues.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Sent packing to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Pivetta to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Few players have seen their fantasy stock plummet in the past month as much as Pivetta, one of the trendier wide-awake sleepers heading into draft season. Though he scooped up his second win in Tuesday's 14-3 decimation of the Mets, Pivetta recorded more walks (three) than strikeouts (two) and fell short of a quality start for the fourth time in as many turns. Philadelphia will turn to the recently recalled Jerad Eickhoff as its fifth starter while Pivetta looks to right the ship in the minors after submitting a 8.35 ERA and 2.13 WHIP in 18.1 innings with the big club.

Phillies' Nick Pivetta: Cruises to easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pivetta (2-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 14-3 rout of the Mets, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings while striking out two.

The right-hander was far from sharp, throwing only 59 of 100 pitches for strikes and serving up two homers, but a 10-run first inning by the Phillies gave Pivetta all the cushion he could have wanted. Despite the winning record, he sports a rough 8.35 ERA through four starts and 18.1 innings, and Pivetta's numbers may not improve any time soon -- his next start comes Sunday in Coors Field.
