Date:

Sean O'Sullivan has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

O'Sullivan could have elected to become a free agent, but he will instead remain in the Phillies' organization. The right-hander was shelled for five runs over six innings in a spot start last Thursday against the Astros.
Aug 13 - 4:54 PM

Phillies sent RHP Sean O'Sullivan outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

It's the second time he's been designated for assignment by the Phillies and cleared waivers in the last month. He seems likely to again accept the assignment rather than declare free agency.
Aug 13 - 8:52 AM

Phillies designated RHP Sean O'Sullivan for assignment.

O'Sullivan allowed five runs over six innings in a spot start Thursday. He'll be replaced in the Phillies' rotation by Jerome Williams.
Aug 10 - 2:04 PM

Sean O'Sullivan made an emergency start against the Astros on Thursday and struggled, allowing five runs over six innings but didn't factor into the decision as the Phillies came from behind late to win 6-5.

The Phillies traded Roberto Hernandez, slated to start Thursday's match against the Astros, to the Dodgers in the afternoon. O'Sullivan scrambled to get to Citizens Bank Park on time, and the Astros -- particularly Chris Carter, who homered twice -- had his number. The right-hander gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. It's unclear if he'll stick in the rotation with Hernandez gone, but the two starts he has made for the Phillies this season won't help his cause.
Aug 7 - 10:12 PM

Sean O'Sullivan will start Thursday against the Astros.

That was the expectation after Roberto Hernandez was traded to the Dodgers on Thursday, but it's now official. O'Sullivan owns an ugly 5.90 ERA in the majors and shouldn't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Aug 7 - 5:51 PM

Phillies purchased the contract of RHP Sean O'Sullivan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

O'Sullivan will make an emergency start on Thursday night for the Phillies, who just traded Roberto Hernandez to the Dodgers. O'Sullivan owns a rough 5.90 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 224 1/3 career major league innings. He is not a good fantasy bet, even against the Astros.
Aug 7 - 2:31 PM

Phillies sent RHP Sean O'Sullivan outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

O'Sullivan cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Phillies over the weekend. The 26-year-old has the option to reject the assignment to Triple-A and choose free agency.
Jul 1 - 1:38 PM

Phillies designated RHP Sean O'Sullivan for assignment.

O'Sullivan allowed four earned runs in 5 2/3 innings in a spot start Saturday versus the Braves. He seems likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization as depth.
Jun 29 - 10:38 AM

Sean O'Sullivan surrendered four earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Braves.

It was the second the half of a doubleheader and the Phillies lost both games. O'Sullivan did not walk a batter, but the Braves got to him for eight hits. He'll likely be sent back to Triple-A on Sunday morning.
Jun 28 - 10:31 PM

Phillies purchased the contract of RHP Sean O'Sullivan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

O'Sullivan is starting for the Phillies in the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves. The right-hander will be sent back to Triple-A on Sunday.
Jun 28 - 5:45 PM

Sean O'Sullivan will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves.

He'll follow Roberto Hernandez. Signed to a minor league deal over the winter, O'Sullivan holds a 4.31 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 87 2/3 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season. He should be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Jun 26 - 4:14 PM

Padres signed RHP Sean O'Sullivan to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. The 26-year-old had a 3.83 ERA over 115 innings this past season at the Triple-A level. O'Sullivan's problems begin when he's asked to take to a major league hill, where he's been taxed with a 5.89 ERA over 50 career appearances (37 starts). He'll need a big spring to win a roster spot.

Padres sent RHP Sean O'Sullivan outright to Triple-A Tucson.

O'Sullivan was designated for assignment earlier this week, but he'll wind up sticking around. He holds a 3.96 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 25 big league innings this season.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 08:27:00 AM

Padres designated RHP Sean O'Sullivan for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Brad Boxberger on the active roster. O'Sullivan has a 3.96 ERA in three starts and four relief appearances this season, despite a lousy 12/14 K/BB ratio in 25 innings.
