Jonathan Pettibone still shaking off the rust


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Pettibone calls setback 'unfortunate and upsetting'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2014) Phillies starting pitcher Jonathan Pettibone is hoping his latest setback due to shoulder soreness won't keep him sidelined for long, according to The Delaware County Daily Times.

"I think we're just getting it at an early stage, so hopefully we can just push going off the mound back a few days and go for there," he said. "I'm going to get on anti-inflammatories (Sunday) and hopefully that shuts it down."

Pettibone understands he can't afford to be sidelined for too long as he competes for a spot in the team's rotation.

"I want to be ready more than anyone, especially missing the end of last year," he said. "This wasn't part of the plan. I was working my tail off this offseason making sure I'd be ready, so it's unfortunate and upsetting.

"My main goal is that I want to be healthy and I want to be in that competition, so that's the only thing I'm focused on. I want to be in a position where I give myself a chance to make that fifth spot."
