As first reported on Twitter by Ryan Petzar, and quickly confirmed by the Phillies, Joe Savery has been optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and a corresponding roster move will be announced Friday. Savery last pitched Tuesday, giving up 1 hit against 2 batters against the Mets. Savery has thrown strikes but is getting hit hard. Savery has a 4.50 ERA and an identical 2.25 K/9 IP and BB/9 IP rate. It is anticipated Jake Diekman will replace Savery on the 25-man roster. Diekman has been on fire with the IronPigs, racking up 22 Ks over 15.1 IP, walking 3 with a 0.59 ERA and 5 saves.
