Bohm and other Phils minor leaguers on the move

News landed on Thursday evening that third baseman Alec Bohm would be moving up from Class A Advanced Clearwater to Double-A Reading.

Bohm, the Phillies' first round draft choice last year, opened the season with Class A Lakewood and was promoted to Clearwater after a scorching April in which he batted .367 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 22 games.  In 40 games with the Threshers, the 22-year-old batted .329 with four homers and 27 RBI. 

At the rate he is progressing, it won't be long before Bohm is making an impact with the best sportsbooks.

A move to make room with Reading saw Austin Listi moving up to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Overall this season, Listi's offensive efforts (.220/.339/.364) aren't great, but he has been hot in June, slashing at a .328/.406/.552 clip in 19 games this month with the Fightins.

The 25-year-old righty hitter was a 17th round pick by the Phillies in 2017.  Listi was honored as the Phils' top positional minor league player last year with the Paul Owens Award, when he posted a .312 average with 18 homers and 84 RBI in 123 games across Class A Advanced and Double-A. 

Moving up from Class A Lakewood to Clearwater are right-handed pitcher Kyle Glogoski and corner infielder Luke Miller.

Glogoski was the BlueClaws' lone All-Star representative this year and earned the win in the South Atlantic League's annual exhibition this week. In eight regular season appearances, the 20-year-old New Zealand native has tallied a 3-1 record with a 1.80 ERA and a .144 batting average against.

Miller, a 22-year-old righty batter, opened the season in extended spring training and has performed well since joining the BlueClaws.  In 21 games he has posted a .260 average with three home runs and 12 RBI.  He's also notched a .372 on base percentage.  Miller was the Phillies' 22nd round draft pick last year.

The Phillies released Damek Tomscha and Gift Ngoepe.  Both players had been on the Lehigh Valley roster this season. Right-handed pitcher Ismael Cabrera, in his fourth season with Lakewood, was also released from his contract, per a source.

Bohm is expected to make his Eastern League debut on Friday with Reading on the road in Portland for three days.  The team then opens a three-game set on Monday at Trenton, before heading home to open a homestand next Thursday, June 27th.

Biddle slated to make Reading return on Saturday

On Saturday, he'll make his long awaited return to the FirstEnergy Stadium mound when he starts the first game of the Fightins' scheduled double header against Binghamton. The 22-year-old posted a 0-4 record with a 12.64 ERA in four June starts. It was clear that there was something quite wrong with Biddle, who had missed a start in late May after being pelted with hail and suffering a concussion. A mixture of feelings including confusion and anger were firmly settling in while Biddle's efforts on the mound were not. The Phils saw a need for the Philadelphia native and Germantown Friends School product to take a break. Exams discovered lasting impact on Biddle stemming from the concussion and time off was required. "For me it was an important time not only to take a mental break and to go down
