Nick Pivetta optioned to the minors

Nick Pivetta was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta was shifted to the bullpen earlier this season, but has allowed at least one earned run in four of his last five appearances. He will look to get back on track in Triple-A, but whether he is used as a starter or reliever remains to be seen.

Nick Pivetta earns first save Saturday

Phillies pitcher Nick Pivetta allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless innings to earn his first save in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

The Phillies transitioned Pivetta to the bullpen a few weeks ago, and the results have been somewhat mixed. He has allowed at least one run in three of his six appearances, but now has a hold and a save under his belt. He should continue to see the occasional late-inning opportunity as the Phillies continue to figure out their bullpen situation.

Nick Pivetta destined for the 'pen?

Pivetta will reportedly move to the bullpen once the Phillies' signing of Drew Smyly is official.

Fantasy Impact

This isn't a surprising development given Pivetta's struggles this season. The 26-year-old right-hander boasts a 5.74 ERA, a 5.72 xFIP, a 1.49 WHIP and 58 strikeouts over 69 innings; he can safely be dropped in all but the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Nick Pivetta allows one run in rain-shortened outing

Phillies starter Nick Pivetta allowed one earned run on no hits and four walks while striking out four over 2 1/3 innings in a rain-shortened no-decision against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta got into trouble almost immediately on Wednesday, walking three batters to load the bases. He eventually escaped the jam after allowing just one run but would eventually leave the game after throwing just 2 1/3 innings because of a rain delay. He will now take a 5.74 ERA into his next start against the Tigers in Detroit.

Nick Pivetta allows three runs in loss to Nationals Friday

Phillies starter Nick Pivetta allowed three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings in a loss to the Nationals on Friday. The loss drops him to 4-4 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Pivetta now has a 5.81 ERA on the season across 11 starts, and more importantly, for fantasy owners, his strikeout numbers have been down over his four starts. While his usually solid strikeout numbers help some fantasy owners overlook his inconsistent overall performance, any kind of dip in strikeouts would all but erase Pivetta's fantasy appeal. He will look to bounce back when he takes on the Dodgers at home in his next start.
