The Phillies designated Andrew Bellatti for assignment.
This was a corresponding move to the Phillies trading for Michael Rucker. Bellatti will look to land with a new team through waivers.
Andrew Bellatti walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning against the Reds on Monday, earning his second save.
Bellatti probably won't factor into the saves mix much even with Seranthony Dominguez on the IL, but with the Phillies bullpen exhausted from the weekend and David Robertson unavailable, he got the call. Bellatti has a 3.76 ERA and 1.33 WHIP and is likely far down the pecking order for ninth-inning options, so don't bother adding him despite his second career save.
Andrew Bellatti pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to record the save in the Phillies' win over the Padres on Sunday.
Bellatti saved 11 games in Triple-A last season but he was hardly considered in contention to be a ninth-inning option this year. Brad Hand and Seranthony Dominguez had both worked on Saturday, but that should hardly have precluded them from pitching again the following day. Bellatti could see more save chances down the road, but even if he does, he'll almost certainly be the absolute smallest part of a committee. Still, after locking down his first career save in the majors, it's good to know that he's a potential option if necessary.
Philadelphia Phillies RP Andrew Bellatti pitched 2/3 of an inning on Thursday, walking one in the Phillies 9-7 win over the Dodgers.
Bellatti is not worth rostering in fantasy as he has no saves on the season and picked up just his first win of the season as a pitcher who sees little to no high leverage baseball. The relief pitcher does however boast an ERA of 2.08 with a WHIP of 1.27 and should just be considered a better real life pitcher than someone who is good for fantasy.
