Phillies optioned RHP Phillippe Aumont to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Aumont, 25, has been awful in limited exposure at the big league level this year, allowing six runs on six hits over 3 2/3 innings (14.73 ERA and 2.72 WHIP). The former top prospect retains superb velocity, but walking nearly a batter an inning isn't going to hack it at the sport's highest level. Aug 2 - 10:47 PM

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

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.

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.

He'll likely be used in lower-leverage situations in his first taste of the big leagues.
