Phillies promote No. 9 prospect Erik Miller to Triple-A Lehigh Valley
The promotions keep on coming for the Philadelphia Phillies minor league prospects.
After both Andrew Painter and Mick Abel were promoted to Double-A Reading yesterday, the Phillies announced today that LHP Erik Miller would be heading to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Erik Miller is the Phillies No. 9 ranked prospect and top reliever prospect. The 24-year old left handed pitcher was a fourth round draft selection by the Phillies in the 2019 MLB draft (120 overall).
On the season, Miller is 1-0 with a 2.23 ERA over 22 games (7 Starts) in 36.1 innings pitched.
Earlier today, the Phillies also announced that Corey Knebel would be heading to the 15-Day IL with a lat strain suffered during yesterday’s 6-0 loss to the Mets. Sam Coonrod was then activated from the 60-Day IL in a corresponding move.
The Phillies open up at three-game series in Cincinnati against the Reds tonight at 6:40PM.
