22-year old righty starting pitcher Jonathan Pettibone is off to a good start to his major league career. He has started 3 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. He has given up 18 hits and walked 2 batters while whiffing 13 in his first 16 2/3 innings so far this year. He came into this season as the Phillies’ #4 prospect according to Baseball America. He pitched in 89 games (87 starts) in his five years in the minors for the Phillies and he was 33-31 with a 3.44 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Pettibone will have a good chance of keeping his starting role for a while if he keeps pitching well as #5 starter John Lannan isn’t going to be ready to return any time soon.
