Phillies' Sean O'Sullivan to begin rehab assignment Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Phillies pitcher Sean O'Sullivan (knee) will begin a rehab assigment with Class A Lakewood Thursday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

O'Sullivan threw 50 pitches during a simulated game Saturday and appears ready to take the next step, taking the mound for a start Thursday. He made just two starts this season before hitting the disabled list, going 0-1 with a 4.91 ERA and 7:3 K:BB ratio in 11 innings.


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.

O'Sullivan hel a 4.91 ERA through three starts. He was projected to start Thursday against the Marlins. Instead, right-hander Dustin McGowan will get the call.


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. 

O'Sullivan, credited with a loss, now holds a 4.91 ERA this season. His next projected start is on April 23 against the Marlins. 


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.


Phillies add Sean O'Sullivan, designate Jimenez for assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) The Phillies selected the contract of pitcher Sean O'Sullivan from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Sunday, designated pitcher Cesar Jimenez for assignment in a corresponding move.

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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

O'Sullivan is likely to make just the one start, though he could be staying with the team, as he was not added as the 26th man for the doubleheader.
