Phillies sent RHP Michael Stutes outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Stutes cleared waivers and will remain with the organization. It isn't a surprise, as the 27-year-old right-hander missed a large part of the 2013 season due to biceps tendinitis. He collected a 4.58 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 9/8 K/BB ratio over just 17 2/3 innings.

Phillies optioned RHP Michael Stutes to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The 27-year-old right-hander missed a large part of the 2013 season due to biceps tendinitis, posting a 4.58 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 9/8 K/BB ratio in his 17 2/3 innings with the Phillies. He allowed seven runs in just three innings of work this spring, and will continue to function as bullpen depth in the minor leagues.

Michael Stutes (biceps) has been long-tossing.

Michael Stutes is still dealing with soreness in his right biceps/shoulder area.

Michael Stutes (biceps) will be shut down until at least July 5.

Stutes was placed on the DL over the weekend with right biceps tendinitis. Obviously, the right-hander is a longshot to return prior to the All-Star break.

Phillies recalled RHP Michael Stutes from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Michael Stutes (shoulder) threw Tuesday with hitters in the batter's box.

Most of his teammates just stood in the batter's box, but it was the closest Stutes has come to facing live hitters since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder last June. Assuming he continues to progress, he should be in the mix for a bullpen job this spring.

Michael Stutes said Wednesday that he's 100 percent following arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder last June.

Stutes was limited to just six appearances with the Phillies last season prior to the surgery, but he should be working with no limitations this spring. He should be in the mix for a bullpen job.

Phillies transferred RHP Michael Stutes (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
