A pleasant surprise for the Phillies bullpen last season, Andrew Bellatti appeared in 59 games, making one start and serving as an opener for a bullpen game last July 12th.  Only Jose Alvarado, also with 59, pitched in as many games last season for the National League Champions.  Overall, Bellatti was 4-4 with a 3.31 ERA over 54 1/3 innings.  He pitched in eight postseason games, owning an impressive 1.29 ERA in seven innings pitched.

Bellatti made the opening day roster in 2023, but landed on the 15-day IL on April 22nd with right triceps tendinitis.  He was activated on May 10th, and on the active roster for 11 games before being optioned down to Lehigh Valley to open up a roster spot for the newly acquired Dylan Covey.  Bellatti hasn't found the same success in 2023 as of yet, as he owns a 5.68 ERA through 15 appearances and 12 2/3 innings pitched.
