Phillies placed RHP Jonathan Pettibone on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Pettibone is facing hitters again as he works his way back from shoulder surgery but won't be an option for the big club until for at least another month or so. He threw just nine innings last season.
Apr 5 - 2:03 PM

Jonathan Pettibone is scheduled to face live hitters Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery last June to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Pettibone has already completed 10 bullpen sessions without issue. The 24-year-old right-hander will hang back at extended spring training when camp breaks, but he could be an option for the Phillies' starting rotation at some point in May. It's a very weak group of starters beyond Cole Hamels.
Mar 30 - 11:20 AM

Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) said he's probably a few weeks away from throwing to live hitters in batting practice.

Pettibone is recovering from shoulder surgery in June, and as such he remains a few weeks behind his peers. Pettibone, 24, threw just nine innings this past season, but he had a 4.04 ERA in 18 starts for the Phillies in 2013. Given how weak the back end of the Phillies rotation appears, the right-hander could find his way into the rotation once healthy.
Feb 28 - 5:30 PM

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro indicated Tuesday that it's unclear whether Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) will be ready for the start of next season.

Pettibone underwent shoulder surgery back in June. "That will be determined over the next few months," Amaro said regarding the right-hander's availability. The Phillies could conceivably have a few rotation spots up for grabs in spring training, but it sounds like Pettibone might not be healthy enough to participate in the competition.

Jonathan Pettibone will undergo exploratory surgery on Tuesday.

Pettibone was diagnosed with a small tear of the labrum in his right shoulder last month. We should know more about a potential timetable after the surgery is completed.

Jonathan Pettibone was diagnosed Wednesday with a small tear of the labrum in his right shoulder.

Dr. James Andrews did the exam. Pettibone was given an anti-inflammatory shot and prescribed rest. He's expected to avoid surgery but could be out for a while.

Jonathan Pettibone has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to shoulder issues.

Pettibone dealt with shoulder problems last season and during spring training this year. It's not clear at this point how long he might be sidelined, but obviously he won't be an option for the Phillies' rotation anytime soon.

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.

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.

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.
