Jonathan Pettibone, a right-handed starting pitcher for the Reading Phillies, has been selected as the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the period of June 18th-June 24th. The 21-year old started two games for the R-Phils last week and had a record of 1-0 with 15 strikeouts and a 1.29 ERA. Pettibone, who is a native of Yorba Linda, California, made his first appearance of the week on Monday morning against the visiting Akron Aeros and gave up two runs, one earned, on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over seven plus innings. He was in line for the win when he left the game in the top of the eighth inning but wound up with a no-decision in Reading's 4-3, 10-inning victory. In his second start of the week the 6'5", 200 lb. hurler threw a complete game to lead Reading to a 3-1 win at Bowie in the opening game of a doubleheader. He struck out seven and walked two while giving up one run on three hits over seven innings to improve his record to 7-5 on the season while lowering his ERA to 3.27. Jonathan, who led all Eastern League pitchers in strikeouts (15) and innings pitched (14.0) last week, was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the third round of the 2008 draft out of Esperanza High School in Anaheim, California.
