Pettibone was fourth on the Phillies in starts and quality starts in 2013.
There were four Phillies pitchers in 2013 to throw 100 or more innings. The three obvious answers are Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, and Kyle Kendrick. The fourth? Jonathan Pettibone.
The 6’6″ Pettibone entered the 2013 season as a 22-year old who had success in Double-A Reading in 2012 (3.30 ERA in 19 starts) and even more success in a late-season call-up to Triple-A Lehigh Valley (2.55 ERA in seven starts) but considered by most to be behind Tyler Cloyd, Ethan Martin and Adam Morgan as a minor league injury call-up. Yet, by April 22, Pettibone was the starting pitcher against the NL Wild Card-winning Pittsburgh Pirates despite posting a 7.71 ERA in three starts with the IronPigs.
Pettibone rewarded the Phillies for their confidence, giving the Phillies 18 starts with a 4.04 ERA, striking a batter and three-quarters for every batter he walked. There were a lot of positives about Pettibone’s performance in 2013: as ...

Heading into 2013, Kyle Kendrick had spent the previous two seasons as a versatile swingman. In 2011 and 2012 combined, Kendrick posted a 3.61 ERA with 5.7 K/9 IP (career high) and 2.6 BB/9 IP (career low) with a 1.252 WHIP.
Through eight starts, Kyle Kendrick posted a 2.47 ERA with a .231 BAA. It looked like the strides Kendrick had made in ’11 and ’12 were real and that he...
The 2014 auditions are visible in the clubhouse to the decision-makers of the Philadelphia Phillies, who, for example, can observe Cody Asche’s preparation. In other words, most of us only see the performances on the diamond. During spring training, the lid on that refuge may open a crack.

The Philadelphia Phillies had very few bright spots in the 2013 season, which saw them fall to 73-89. But one of those bright spots, despite some injury problems, was the emergence of rookie pitcher Jonathan Pettibone.
Pettibone was called up to the Phillies in April when injuries started to hit the starting rotation. It didn’t appear at the time that his time with the Phillies...

In the 12 games in September, Ryne Sandberg has penciled in the names Asche, Ruf, and Hernandez together 10 times. The Phillies have won 6 of those games with the three names I mentioned scoring 20 of the Phillies 50 runs (40%), knocking in 19 (38%), and accounting for 35 total runs (70%).
Are these three (along with Dom Brown) the core of the future? Are we witnessing stars before...

Recap and stats from the final month of the season for the Phils
Any team in the MLB would love to have Giancarlo Stanton. He’s athletic, has incredible power, and is only 23-years old.
So it’s no surprise that the Philadelphia Phillies would ask the Marlins about him. Of course, the Phillies came into the season with Delmon Young being the starting right fielder, so that’s all the more reason for Fightins GM Ruben Amaro Jr. to inquire about...
