Eflin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies needed a roster spot for the acquisition of Justin Bour, and Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets will allow the team to recall Eflin as the 26th man. The 24-year-old won't be skipped in the starting rotation but must remain in the minors until that twin bill, barring an injury move from the Phillies.
