Pivetta flashed a few good starts after he was called back up but then plummeted in value again and was sent to the bullpen. He is worth keeping an eye on, however, in case anything changes.

Most metrics painted Pivetta as the perfect breakout pick. On the strength of a stellar 19.7 K-BB%, he posted a 3.80 FIP and 3.51 SIERA despite a bloated 4.77 ERA in 2018. That made his abhorrent start to 2019 all the more frustrating. The polarizing pitcher had acquiesced 31 hits and 18 runs in 18.1 nightmarish innings prior to his demotion. Since dominating the Dodgers and Reds shortly after his return, he has served up nine homers in six starts. With his ERA back up to 5.74, the Phillies are moving him to the bullpen. It's time to move on in all formats.

Pivetta was a popular breakout pick this year thanks to his promising peripherals, but he's failed to live up to the hype yet again and is now back in the minors. Pivetta is an elite bat misser, but he's been consistently victimized by a high BABIP, low strand rate, and lots and lots of home runs. It is looking more and more likely that he's the next in a line of pitchers who don't quite live up to their peripherals.
