Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Aumont has struck out 26 over 24 innings at Lehigh Valley this season, but he's also walked 21 while posting a 4.12 ERA. He'll be used in low-leverage situations.

Phillies optioned RHP Phillippe Aumont to minor league camp.

Aumont might have sealed his own fate Friday, allowing two runs while recording only one out in taking the loss. The 25-year-old had a 4.05 ERA with just three strikeouts this spring. There's a good chance Aumont will be in Philadelphia sometime before the year is over.

Phillippe Aumont believes that he fixed a mechanical flaw in his delivery, which led to the poor results and inconsistency he experienced in 2013.

The 25-year-old hurler compiled a 4.19 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 19/13 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings with the Phillies in 2013. He still has elite stuff, so if the correction can lead to improved command, he could be a name to watch as a setup man in the Phillies bullpen.

Phillippe Aumont is working on his control in the minors.

Aumont is still walking a batter per inning in the minors, and the Phillies still believe the young hurler is headstrong, but there's hope that the 11th-overall pick in the 2007 draft will eventually figure it out. "He's doing everything he's asked to do," Triple-A Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage said. "Trying to make some adjustments here and there. And I think Philippe Aumont has to make those adjustments. It's up to him. It's not anyone else, it's not anything that we can say or do. We can help him, and everyone wants to help him. He shows glimpses of it." Aumont, who was demoted last month, posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 19 1/3 innings at the major league level.

Phillies optioned RHP Phillippe Aumont to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Aumont has a 4.19 ERA and 1.91 WHIP in 19 1/3 innings this season at the major league level. The 24-year-old right-hander will work on his craft in the minors.

Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Phillies optioned RHP Phillippe Aumont to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Aumont struck out 15 over 13 innings but also posted a 4.15 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over 16 appearances. The Phillies are likely to call up Mike Stutes prior to Friday's game.

Phillippe Aumont gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning mopping up against the Marlins on Monday.

Aumont seems about due for a demotion. His 4.05 ERA still isn't bad, but it's come with a terrible 2.08 WHIP in 13 innings. All he's doing is mopping up anyway; all but one of his 16 appearances has come in a Phillies loss.

Phillippe Aumont has won a spot in the Phillies' Opening Day bullpen.

He beat out Michael Stutes, who will likely be optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies have also announced that Rule 5 pick Ender Inciarte and Humberto Quintero have made the Opening Day roster.

Phillippe Aumont recorded his first major league save despite giving up a run in the ninth Monday against the Reds.

Jonathan Papelbon had the day off after Sunday night's blown save and loss. Aumont couldn't hack it as a starter, but he has closer potential with his 94-98 mph fastball and sharp curve. It'd be a big lift to the Phillies' chances if he turns into a quality setup man next year.

Phillies recalled RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He'll take the roster spot of Jeremy Horst, who was placed on the paternity leave list Monday. Aumont, who was acquired from the Mariners in the Cliff Lee deal, has a 4.26 ERA and 59 strikeouts over 44 1/3 innings at the Triple-A level this season, but he has also averaged 6.9 BB/9. He'll likely be used in lower-leverage situations in his first taste of the big leagues.

Phillies optioned RHP Philippe Aumont to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Aumont allowed six hits and four runs in four Grapefruit League innings this spring. The 23-year-old righty will function as organizational relief depth this season.
Tue, Mar 20, 2012 08:09:00 AM

Phillies purchased the contract of RHP Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Aumont had a nice bounce-back season in 2011, posting a 2.68 ERA and 78/25 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. The Phillies have finally given up on the idea of him starting, and he has closer-upside as a reliever. Aumont was one of the key pieces acquired in the Cliff Lee deal during the 2009 offseason.

Phillies assistant general manager Chuck LaMar said that prospect right-hander Phillippe Aumont will move back to the bullpen in 2011.

"That's where he's comfortable," said LaMar. "We wanted to start him last year and we did. His results weren't very good. But we put him in that position. I felt bad sometimes for the kid. He wants to relieve. He feels comfortable relieving. That's what he did in Seattle." Aumont was demoted to Single-A Clearwater last season after posting an awful 7.43 ERA and 38/38 K/BB ratio over 11 starts with Double-A Reading. The 22-year-old right-hander was one of the top relief prospects in baseball before coming over in the Cliff Lee trade, so perhaps a return to the bullpen will get his career back on track.
