On Friday, right-handed starting pitcher Tyler Cloyd was promoted from Double-A Reading Phillies to the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Cloyd opened the season with Lehigh Valley, as he made a spot start for suspended hurler Dave Bush, but has been dominating the Eastern League since then.
Overall in 5 starts this season, Cloyd, the Phillies' 18th round draft pick from 2008, posted a 4-0 record with a 1.45 ERA and a .200 batting average against.
Last week, this site featured a profile piece on Cloyd that can be found by clicking here.
