De Los Santos was recalled by the Phillies on Tuesday. The 22-year-old will give the Phillies an additional arm in the bullpen down the stretch. He's allowed eight runs in 12 innings at the big-league level this season, though he posted an excellent 2.63 ERA in 22 starts for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
De Los Santos was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. De Los Santos will head back to the minors after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings of relief in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks. A corresponding move will be made prior to Friday's series opener against the Padres. The young righty owns a solid 2.51 ERA across 104 innings with Lehigh Valley.
De Los Santos was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. De Los Santos allowed five runs over 4.1 innings in the final game before the All-Star break Sunday, and will return to the IronPigs with Zach Eflin (finger) eligible to come off the disabled list early next week for the Phillies. The 22-year-old has a 6.75 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across two starts in the majors this season.
The Phillies recalled De Los Santos from Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to his scheduled start Sunday against the Marlins, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. When a sixth starter was needed Tuesday against the Mets, De Los Santos was summoned from Triple-A and made his MLB debut, giving up three runs over 6.1 innings and striking out six en route to the victory. He was optioned to Lehigh Valley following the outing, but De Los Santos will pick up a surprise two-start week after Zach Eflin (finger), who was initially scheduled to start Sunday, was moved to the 10-day disabled list. Eflin's injury doesn't sound particularly serious, so he could be back after the All-Star break, which would result in De Los Santos moving back to Triple-A.
De Los Santos will be called up to start Sunday against the Marlins, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Phillies will need a spot starter again with Zach Eflin hitting the disabled list with a blister. De Los Santos had a solid performance in his big-league debut Tuesday, picking up a win and a quality start against the Mets. Eflin isn't expected to miss more than one start, but if De Los Santos keeps pitching well the Phillies will eventually be forced to find a role for him.
