The Phillies have promoted right-hander Seranthony Dominguez to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 23-year old made 13 starts and two relief appearances with High-A Clearwater last season. He missed almost two months with a right shoulder strain. This season he opened the year with Double-A Reading pitching out of the bullpen and made eight appearances with Reading prior to his promotion to the IronPigs on Friday.
With Reading, Dominguez was 1-2 with a 2.08 ERA this season. Over seven minor league seasons, Dominguez is 22-22 with a 3.07 ERA in 83 games, 54 of which were starts.
Last season, Dominguez was named as a Florida State League midseason All-Star while with Clearwater. Dominguez was initially signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent in October of 2011 and was added to the Phillies 40-man roster last November to protect him from the Rule 5 Draft.
To make room for Dominguez on the Lehigh Valley roster, right-hander Tyler Viza was moved down to Double-A Reading. Viza had a 5.40 ERA in 8 1/3 innings of work with the IronPigs this season.
