The Phillies have placed 23-year old righty starting pitcher Jonathan Pettibone on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 29th, due to a strained right shoulder.  Pettibone has pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-4 with a 4.04 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  The Phillies have called up 24-year old righty starting pitcher Ethan Martin to replace Pettibone in the starting rotation.  Martin came into this season as the Phillies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America.  Martin pitched in 21 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 11-5 with a 4.12 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  Martin gave up 94 hits and 67 walks while whiffing 107 batters in his first 115 2/3 innings this year, so he has good stuff but issues with his control.  Martin has now pitched in 137 games (101 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 48-40 with 3 saves, a 4.64 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  The Phillies hope that Martin is ready for the big time and that Pettibone only has to miss a couple of weeks.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 9 June 2013 at 9:19 am

The Phillies have placed 32-year old righty swinging catcher Erik Kratz on the 15-day disabled list due to a left knee injury.  Kratz has played in 43 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 32 of 140 (.229 avg, .726 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 8 homers and 22 RBIs.  With Carlos Ruiz also out of action, 33-year old righty swinging Humberto Quintero becomes the Phillies’ starting catcher.  He has played in 11 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 7 for 29 (.241 avg, .635 OPS) with 2 RBIs.  28-year old lefty swinging Steven Lerud has been summoned from AAA-ball to serve as Quintero’s backup until Ruiz or Kratz return to action.  Lerud has played in 31 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 21 of 95 (.221 avg, .699 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 homers, 14 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He got his first taste of the majors for the Phillies in 2012, appearing in 3 games in which he was 2 for 10 (.200 avg, .400 OPS) with 1 run scored.  The Phillies should be o.k. defensively with Quintero and Lerud behind the plate, but they are going to lose a lot offensively.
