Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan receives loss in Friday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Despite only giving up two runs over six innings of work, Phillies starter Sean O'Sullivan received his third loss of the season during Friday's 2-1 loss to the Nationals.

"It's definitely a confidence builder and something to build on," he said, per MLB.com. "It feels good to take the mound and have my team feel like we've got a chance to win that day."

O'Sullivan allowed five hits during the outing. He struck out three batters and walked one. His biggest mistake was surrendering a solo home run to Bryce Harper in the second inning.

"We were trying to go up, I went up," O'Sullivan said. "Right now, the best way to pitch to him is with nobody on base. At least I [was getting] the first two guys out in front of him."

O'Sullivan has not pitched past the sixth inning in any of five starts this season. His next scheduled start is set for Wednesday at the New York Mets.


Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan earns first win of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan tossed six scoreless innings, allowing five hits in Philadelphia's 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

O'Sullivan's only issue came in the third inning when with two men on, he threw a wild pitch, allowing them to move to second and third. O'Sullivan worked out of it, however, getting A.J. Pollock to ground out to end the inning.

"Everyone's kind of feeding off each other," O'Sullivan said to MLB.com. "The rotation is kind of feeding off each other. It's almost like everyone's kind of accountable for their part because you don't want to be the guy that's not accountable for his part. I think everyone's really playing as a unit right now."

O'Sullivan, now 1-2, lowered his ERA to 3.68 in 22 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Nationals.

"It's been really frustrating," he said to Philly.com. "I've actually had conversations with [pitching coach Bob McClure] and Chooch [catcher Carlos Ruiz] about it. I wasn't giving up a lot of hits. It was just the one hit. Today, we really focused on when we got ahead of guys, trying to bury the ball or not be too fine early in the count. We worked on some mechanical things. After, I would say about the second inning, everything started to feel real smooth with the things we were working on. We were able to pound strike zone and let the guys behind us work."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan throws 50-pitch simulated game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan took the mound hours before the game against Miami to throw a two-inning simulated game. 

O'Sullivan is on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury. He threw 50 pitches and followed a normal game-day routine. 

"Tried to treat it like a normal outing," O'Sullivan said, per MLB.com. "I warmed up and threw my pregame warmup like I normally would, then waited a few minutes, went out, threw a first inning of 20 pitches or so, sat down for a few minutes, back out there for another 20 or so pitches. It felt good. Threw everything ... The idea was mostly to see how my knee would hold up, let it loose with the break in between to see if it would stiffen up or not. But it didn't, so everything feels good so far."


Phillies place Sean O'Sullivan on DL, recall Hector Neris


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Phillies placed Sean O'Sullivan on the 15-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis and recalled right-hander Hector Neris from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, reports the Philadelphia Daily News.

Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan gives up two homers in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan had a tough outing during Friday night's 7-2 loss to the Nationals. 

O'Sullivan allowed four earned runs in five innings. He gave up five hits, two walks and two home runs. He struck out two batters. The first home run he allowed came in the first inning, which was a three-run shot from Bryce Harper. 

Danny Espinosa then hit a solo homer off of him in the fourth.

Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan allows two runs in season debut Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan surrendered two earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five but didn't factor into the decision in his team's 4-3, 10-inning loss to the Nationals.

O'Sullivan served up a solo home run in the top of the first inning but settled down to have a largely successful season debut, with the Nationals only managing a second run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The Phillies offense was able to take the starter off the hook for the loss by evening the score in the seventh inning.

"With [Scherzer] out there I knew if I did get into trouble I was going to have to limit it as much as I could and keep crooked numbers off the board and give our guys a shot to stay within striking distance," the righty said to Philly.com. "So I was very pleased with my ability to do that today."

O'Sullivan should find himself in a rematch with Washington starter Max Scherzer Friday, provided neither team alters the rotation this week.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

O'Sullivan will take the mound as the team's starter against the Nationals Sunday. Jimenez retired the two batters he faced in his only appearance with the Phillies before being shipped off the roster.

The Phillies are heavy home underdogs (+180) against the Nationals and Max Scherzer Sunday.


Sean O'Sullivan named Phillies' starter for Sunday vs. Nats


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan was named the starter for Sunday's contest against the Nationals, reports Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. O'Sullivan, considered the favorite for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, holds a 5.91 career ERA over 231 1/3 big-league innings. He worked just 12 2/3 innings in the majors last season for the Phillies. 

"We've seen him before. He did a good job for us last year in some spot starts, and (him) being a guy who has some experience in doing that," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.


Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan allows four runs vs. Blue Jays Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan surrendered four earned runs on five hits and four walks in four innings while striking out two and fiving up two home runs in his team's 10-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

"It didn't quite go as well as I would have liked it," O'Sullivan said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I felt a little off on my release points. That's mostly because I've only been on the mound once in the last 11 days."

O'Sullivan is the favorite to serve as the team's fifth starter but didn't help his candidacy Tuesday, as his spring ERA rose from 6.75 to 7.59 after the mediocre showing. He ends Grapefruit League action with an 8:5 K:BB ratio and four home runs allowed in 10 2/3 innings.


Phillies' Slowey struggles Monday, O'Sullivan favorite to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits in two innings while striking out two and giving up two home runs in Monday's 18-4 loss to the Pirates.

Slowey remains a candidate for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, but Sean O'Sullivan, who was reassigned to minor-league camp earlier this month, is scheduled to start Tuesday and is the favorite to take the mound the first time the Phillies need a fifth starter, MLB.com reports.

The Phillies are also looking outside the organization for rotation help, but "it's likely to be an internal candidate," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

If the Phillies do add someone, it'll likely be via a minor trade or through waivers.
