The recent former Phillies have been as successful as other teams-what else is new?
There is no way to determine whether the Phillies will get the same output from former pitcher Nick Pivita as the Red Sox currently has.
Pressure may have been exerting on him-it is difficult to invest in Philly. In Philadelphia’s four seasons, the fourth-round draft pick scored a 5.50 ERA in 396.1 innings and set a record of 19-30. It seems that every spring, there are stories about him on the verge of a breakthrough, but he never did it. He has no chance.
But like many Philly prospects before him, Pivita went to greener pastures and was able to perform. In fact, Dave Dombrowski and some of the players the company chose not to bring back in 2021 performed well in their new houses.
We will start with Pivetta:
Nick Pivetta, Red Sox
Pivetta’s struggles are well documented, and the previous regime led by Matt Klentak sent him to Boston last season to help strengthen the bullpen (none). At the end of 2020, he has a 1.80 ERA record of 2-0, which is nothing short of a big picture.
However, so far, he has proved that this is not the case in 2021. With seven starts from the Red Sox, Pivita is a perfect 5-0 and has a 3.19 ERA. These numbers may be exaggerated-he lacks control and somehow has not paid the price for leading AL to participate in trail 22. But he has done it.
Compared to Matt Moore, Chase Anderson or Vince Velázquez, will Piaveta be a more popular fifth starter? Observe after the fact that the game is going on here, but without changing the scenery, Pivetta is unlikely to achieve better results in Philly.
Ironically, the Red Sox came to town within a few weeks. Will Pivita take revenge? Or has he experienced post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the mounds of South Philly before?
Cole Irvin, athletics
Remember Cole Irvin (Cole Irvin)? He is a natural mid-level potential client, and he made his compelling debut in 2019-and then, nothing more. In 45.1 innings for the Phillies in two seasons, the fifth-round pick era was 6.75. But for him, a landscape change like Pivetta seems feasible. He started seven games in Oakland and his ERA so far is 3.29.
Angel Phil Gosselin
Gosselin was loved by some fans during his alum alum Philly at Malvern Prep. During the shortened 2020 campaign period, Jack in all industries performed well with bats as a utility player and had a high hit rate. Since then, he has continued to advance and started school in Los Angeles, where he has consistently performed well, hitting .304 in third base and DH for the Angels. The Phillies want to have him and the depth he can provide.
Kyle Garlick, twins
The Phillies thought they had enough outfielders, and after he had nothing special last season, Garrick let go. So far, he proved them wrong, they saved the ball in Minnesota. So far, in 18 games, his shooting percentage is .295, and he is showing off his guns on the court.
David Phelps, Blue Jays
Phelps was one of the main components that failed in the worst bullpen in the history of the Phillies last year, and it makes perfect sense for him to walk. However, he has gotten rid of the downturn. So far, his weak 0.87 ERA in 10.1 innings has been relieved. This begs the question, How unfortunate Who is the Philadelphian in the bullpen?
Jake Arrieta, bear
The former Phillies a season ago were not just sunshine and lollipops. Philadelphia decided not to pay too much to Arietta and rejected his team selection in 2021, so he returned to the old team in Chicago. So far, Arrieta has a 4.31 ERA and a 3-3 record. He is currently experiencing minor injuries, which gave him some beginnings. It sounds like his time in Philadelphia.
Jay Bruce, Yankees
Letting their dull DH walk-especially when there is no DH in NL this year-is a wise move for Phils. A few weeks before his retirement in the 2021 season, Bruce reached .118 with just one home run.
The Phillies also had some other bullpen weapons last year.
