Starting pitcher Yohan Flande was promoted from Single-A Clearwater to Double-A Reading yesterday. He will make his first start with the Reading Phillies tonight.
In Clearwater, Flande was 7-1 with a 2.52 earned run average.
The move could also indicate a promotion for two other players in the farm system. The Phillies need a starter on Thursday, so a player will be called up from Triple-A or Double-A. There could also be a Double-A to Triple-A promotion.
