The Phillies promoted Andrew Pullin to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Pullin has been deserving of a promotion for some time, but the Phillies didn't have playing time available for him at Triple-A until now. He hit .308/.368/.556 with 14 home runs and two stolen bases in 266 at-bats for Double-A Reading this season. He could get a look in Philadelphia later this year since he has to be added to the 40-man roster this offseason anyway to be protected from the Rule 5 draft.
Andrew Pullin is hitting .316/.378/.564 with 13 home runs and a stolen base in 250 at-bats for Double-A Reading.
Pullin is overdue for a promotion to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but the Phillies don't have regular at-bats available for him at that level just yet. A promotion should come once one of Lehigh Valley's outfielders gets a call to the majors. Pullin, 23, was available in the Rule 5 draft this past offseason, but that is unlikely to happen again this winter. He's a prime candidate to earn a 40-man roster spot this coming offseason.
