Former Oregon State pitcher Mike Stutes threw one scoreless inning in Philadelphia's 4-0 loss at Arizona on Monday night.

The right-hander became the 25th former OSU player to play at the Major League Baseball level.

Stutes was called up by the Phillies from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday when they placed Jose Contreras on the 15-day disabled list. He entered the game in relief for Cliff Lee in the eighth and struck out one in facing three batters.

Prior to being selected by the Phillies, Stutes had appeared in seven games at the Triple-A level, accumulating a 2-1 record and 1.80 ERA with one save in 10 innings. He had 14 strikeouts.

A native of Lake Oswego, Stutes played three seasons for the Beavers, from 2006-08, and was an 11th-round selection by the Phillies in 2008.

He finished his OSU career with a 24-13 record and 4.17 ERA. He had 287 strikeouts in 302 innings, which placed him third in team history.

With his promotion, Stutes became the fourth former OSU player in the major leagues this season, one shy of the school record of five in 2008.

Darwin Barney is batting .320 in 21 games for the Chicago Cubs, and hit his first career home run on Monday in the team's 5-3 loss to Colorado at Wrigley Field.

Jacoby Ellsbury is in his fourth full season with the Boston Red Sox and has four home runs and 12 RBIs in 21 games this season.

Stutes' former teammate, Joe Paterson, is a member of the Diamondbacks. Paterson, a left-handed specialist, has thrown in 10 games this season, accumulating 42/3 innings. He has allowed just two hits and two walks.
