Scott Mathieson could get another shot with the Philadelphia Phillies soon

26-year old righty reliever Scott Mathieson didn’t look too good in his first shot with the Phillies in 2006 when he pitched in 9 games (8 starts) for them in which he was 1-4 with a 7.47 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He has been hurting lately as he missed all of the 2008 season due to major surgery. But, he is looking sharp right now and the Phillies need another arm in the bullpen so Mathieson could get another shot with them soon. He was the Phillies’ #15 rated prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America. Mathieson has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball so far this season and he is 1-0 with 3 saves, a 0.77 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP. Mathieson is doing a great job of missing bats in AAA as he has only given up 7 hits in 11 2/3 innings while whiffing 11 batters. If Mathieson keeps pitching well and he stays healthy he will be in Philly at some point in 2010.
