PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WEHT) Phillies starting pitcher Jerad Eickhoff has been demoted to the bullpen. The Mater Dei graduate has struggled over the past month and has become ineffective in the starting rotation.
Eickhoff allowed 5 home runs in his last start against the Diamondbacks.
On the season, Eickhoff is 3-4 with a 5.02 ERA.
Phillies manager Gabe Kapler says once Eickhoff gets back on track, he will consider moving him back into the rotation.
