The Phillies are reportedly optioning Nick Pivetta to the minors and moving Jerad Eickhoff to the rotation. (Matt Gelb on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Pivetta earned the win in last night's start against the Mets, but was mediocre at best, allowing three runs and 10 base-runners over five innings. He's struggled all season and the Phillies appear to have reached their temporary breaking point. Pivetta still has quality raw stuff and should be back in the rotation at some point, but for now, fantasy owners in redraft leagues can move on.
