Nick Pivetta to be optioned to the minors

The Phillies are reportedly optioning Nick Pivetta to the minors and moving Jerad Eickhoff to the rotation.

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.

Nick Pivetta allows three earned runs in win Tuesday

Phillies starter Nick Pivetta allowed three earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings in a win over the Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

While Pivetta was not necessarily at his best -- allowing ten baserunners and three runs with only two punchouts -- he was staked to an early 10-0 lead and was able to cruise to the win. His next start is currently scheduled to come against the Rockies in Colorado.

Nick Pivetta gets rocked by Nationals Wednesday

Phillies starter Nick Pivetta allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six over 3 2/3 innings in a blowout loss to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta has not gone more than five innings in any of his three starts so far this season, and he now sports a 9.45 ERA to go with 14 strikeouts over his first 13 1/3 innings. While fantasy owners will take the strikeouts, they will not be able to tolerate the accompanying ERA unless Pivetta can turn things around. He is scheduled to take on the New York Mets at home in his next start.

Nick Pivetta earns first win Friday

Phillies pitcher Nick Pivetta allowed three earned runs on nine hits and one walk and four strikeouts over five innings in a win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta's ERA is an unsightly 6.52 through his first two starts, but he pitched well enough to secure the win on Friday. His next start is scheduled to come against the Nationals at home.

Nicke Pivetta allows eight hits and four earned runs in season debut

Nick Pivetta went a short 4.2 innings in his season debut. He allowed eight hits, a home run, four earned runs, a walk and struck out four.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta didn't look all that sharp in this one. He struggled with command and allowed far too many hits. His next start will come on Saturday against the Minnesota Twins where he will attempt to get back on track.
