Phillies optioned RHP Jonathan Pettibone to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
This comes in the wake of Friday's disastrous start against the Rockies where he allowed eight runs on nine hits in his four innings of work. With Cole Hamels set to rejoin the rotation this week, Pettibone will continue to function as organizational depth in the minor leagues. Apr 19 - 12:10 AM

Phillies recalled RHP Jonathan Pettibone from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

After Monday's rainout, the team needed an extra starter and Pettibone is the lucky one to get the call. The 23-year-old posted a 4.04 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 66/32 K/BB ratio in 100 1/3 innings for the Phillies in 2013, and shouldn't be trusted as a streaming option in mixed leagues.

Jonathan Pettibone will start Saturday against the Marlins.

The Phillies need to call up a fifth starter for Saturday because of Monday's rainout. Pettibone ultimately got the call over David Buchanan or a possible bullpen game with Jeff Manship starting. He shouldn't be an option in most fantasy leagues.

Jonathan Pettibone could start on Saturday against the Marlins.

The Phillies will choose between Pettibone, David Buchanan, or using relievers to get through Saturday's game. With Monday's postponement, the Phillies need a fifth starter six days earlier than expected. Two factors pointing in favor of Pettibone: he is on track to be on normal rest on Saturday, and he is already on the 40-man roster.

Phillies optioned RHP Jonathan Pettibone to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Pettibone fell behind this spring due to right shoulder soreness and finally made his Grapefruit League debut Thursday. He'll continue to get stretched out in the minors for now and could be an option when the Phillies need a fifth starter for the first time in mid-April.
Mar 27 - 4:24 PM

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to pitch in a minor league game Saturday.

He fired 2 1/3 scoreless innings Thursday in Clearwater. "Just work into the delivery, work into throwing strikes," pitching coach Bob McClure said. "I wanted to see him mix it up a little more, see him use his breaking ball a little more, which he did. I'm trying to get him to understand that you don't have to throw max effort all the time to be effective. I just don't know if he can do that throwing one inning every time." The spring hasn't been kind to Pettibone, as he owns a 1/7 K/BB rate over 10 1/3 innings. Even with the Phillies, that isn't going to hack it for a No. 5 starter.

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to pitch in a minor league game Monday.

Pettibone has been out with a sore shoulder since the beginning of camp but appears to be making progress. He's hoping to catch up in time to be considered for the No. 5 starter job, which might be doable since the Phillies won't need someone until April 13.

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) threw to live hitters on Wednesday.

"I felt good, no pain," Pettibone said after his workout. The 23-year-old right-hander believes he could still enter the mix for Philadelphia's fifth starter vacancy. The competition currently houses an uninspiring mix of David Buchanan, Jeff Manship, Sean O'Sullivan and Mario Hollands. "I think it could be perfect," Pettibone said. "I’m behind, but I don’t feel like I’m a month out of it."

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) will throw live batting practice or appear in a minor league game Wednesday.

It will be the first time he's faced hitters since being shut down with shoulder soreness early on in camp. Pettibone could have enough time to get ready for Opening Day, but he's not expected to crack the big league roster.
Mar 10 - 7:02 PM

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) threw from a mound with no issues Friday.

Pettibone received a cortisone injection in his right shoulder last week and appears to be all systems go now. He'll be fine for Opening Day if he can avoid a setback, though he's expected to serve as rotation insurance at Triple-A.
Feb 28 - 8:57 AM

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) resumed throwing on flat ground Saturday.

Pettibone received a cortisone injection in his right shoulder five days ago to address some soreness, and he hopes to be back on a mound within the next week. The right-hander called the throwing session "fine." If healthy, Pettibone will serve as rotation depth for the Phillies.
Feb 22 - 4:59 PM

Jonathan Pettibone received a cortisone injection Monday morning for his sore right shoulder.

Pettibone missed the final two months of the 2013 season due to inflammation in his biceps and rotator cuff, and it seems as though the issue was not resolved over the winter. He will attempt to throw in five days. If that doesn't go well, he'll likely visit a specialist.
Feb 17 - 12:09 PM

Jonathan Pettibone didn't throw a scheduled bullpen session Sunday due to shoulder soreness.

It's a bit of a concern after biceps and shoulder issues cost him the final two months of last season, but the Phillies don't seem too worried at this point. "Hopefully nothing big," GM Ruben Amaro said. We are just trying to be cautious." It's not clear at this point when Pettibone will attempt to throw again. The 23-year-old doesn't have a rotation spot following the A.J. Burnett signing, but losing him would hurt the Phils' depth.
Feb 16 - 11:25 AM

Jonathan Pettibone (arm) will throw off a mound Friday.

Inflammation in the right biceps and rotator cuff cost the 23-year-old righty the last two months of 2013 and limited his rookie season to 18 starts. Pettibone threw a few side sessions in October without pain, and will now resume work. "Last year, they had five starters," Pettibone said. "My goal last year was to show them what I could do. Give them an image in the back of their minds in case something went wrong - like it did - and they knew what they had. This year, tides have turned, and I'm going in competing for a job. It's going to be fun. I'm looking forward to it." Pettibone enters the spring competition an underdog to Miguel Gonzalez to seize the last spot in the rotation.
Jan 23 - 11:35 AM

Phillies activated RHP Jonathan Pettibone from the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move in order to add him back to the 40-man roster. Pettibone missed the last two months of the season due to shoulder soreness, but he's been throwing for a month and should be fine for spring training.
