Teased on Twitter by De Los Santos's gurlfriend Melissa and confirmed by IronPigs beat writer Tom Housenick, the promising prospect is on his way to join a first place Phillies club.
Per the Housenick report, De Los Santos will start against the Mets at New York's Citi Field instead of at Huntington Park in Columbus, OH at the Triple-A exhibition.
Through 16 starts this season, De Los Santos sports a 9-3 record, with 1.89 ERA and a .210 BAA with 87K, 31BB in 95 1/3 IP.
The Dominican Republic native was acquired last off-season from San Diego in a trade for shortstop Freddy Galvis.
The Phillies have a need for an extra hurler with a double header (make up of an April 2nd rain out) slated in New York for Monday using up two of the team's pitchers.
