Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: DFA'd by Philly
Bellati was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday.
Bellati made 27 appearances for the Phillies last season and was unimpressive with a 5.11 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB over 24.2 innings. The right-hander has no remaining minor-league options, so Philadelphia opted to removed him from the 40-man roster to clear space for trade-acquisition Michael Rucker.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Back from injured list
The Phillies reinstated Bellatti (triceps) off the 15-day injured list Wednesday, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Bellatti will join the active roster as a replacement for left-hander Jose Alvarado, who was placed on the IL with elbow inflammation. Bellatti missed a little over two weeks with right triceps tendinitis, but now that he's healthy again after tossing scoreless innings in both of his rehab appearances with Single-A Clearwater, he'll be a bridge option for the Phillies in the mid-to-late innings....

Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Cleared for rehab assignment
Bellatti (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment Friday with Low-A Clearwater.
Bellatti got the go-ahead to return to live competition after completing a 25-pitch round of live batting practice earlier this week. Out since April 22 due to right triceps tendinitis, he should be an option again for the Phillies' bullpen by mid-May.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Lands on injured list
Bellatti was placed on the 15-day injured list with right triceps tendinitis Saturday.
The move was made retroactive to Friday, so Bellatti will be eligible to return May 6, but it's unclear if he'll have a chance to make it back after a minimum-length stay. The righty gave up just two hits and zero runs in his first six appearances but allowed six runs on nine hits in his last four outings. It's possible those struggles were injury-related. Cristopher Sanchez (triceps) was activated off the injured list to take Bellati's place on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Picks up second save
Bellatti walked one batter and struck out two in a scoreless inning while earning a save over the Reds on Monday.
Bellatti worked around a leadoff walk to finish the 4-1 win with little issue. It was his second save of the year and first since June 26. The 31-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.76 through 45 appearances. Bellatti is one of several Phillies that are expected to see some ninth-inning work while Seranthony Dominguez (triceps) is out....

Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: To serve as opener
Bellatti has been named the starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bellatti has allowed just one run over his last eight appearances, fanning 12 and walking two over that stretch (7.2 innings). His longest outing of the season lasted 1.1 innings, so he'll be asked to give his club an inning or so before making way for the primary pitcher, who has yet to be determined.... See More ...

Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Collects first big-league save
Bellatti pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn the save in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Padres.
Interim manager Rob Thomson didn't want to turn to his top relievers, Seranthony Dominguez and Brad Hand, due to heavy usage lately, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Bellatti was called upon instead, and he was able to lock down his first major-league save with 14 pitches (nine strikes). In June, Bellatti has allowed three runs (two earned) in 7.1 innings, and he owns a reasonable 3.42 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 35:10 K:BB across 23.2 innings overall. He's added four holds and a 1-2 record, but Sunday's save doesn't necessarily signal his entrance into the Phillies' closer committee just yet.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Can't finish save chance
Bellatti picked up his third hold of the year in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals, striking out two batters in two-thirds of an inning while allowing an unearned run on one hit.
He entered the game in the top of the ninth inning in position to record his first career save, as the Phillies has already used Seranthony Dominguez and Brad Hand in the first game of the day. Bellatti sandwiched a Yadiel Hernandez single between a pair of strikeouts but was pulled for lefty Jose Alvarado with Juan Soto up and the game on the line. Hernandez would eventually come around to score on a Didi Gregorius error, denying Bellatti the save and leaving him with a hold.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Andrew Bellatti: Contract selected by Phillies
Bellatti's contract was selected by the Phillies on Thursday.
The 30-year-old righty owns a 3.71 ERA in 26.2 career major-league innings, though his 19.3 percent strikeout rate and 10.5 percent walk rate suggest that number is due to rise. He'll fill a low-leverage role for the Phillies for now after Connor Brogdon and Damon Jones were optioned Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
