Kenny Giles gets AAA promotion

Hard throwing righty gets the call to Lehigh Valley

Kenny Giles promoted to Lehigh Valley

READING, Pa. - For as cold as its been at FirstEnergy Stadium through the first month of the season, Kenny Giles has brought plenty of heat. The flamethrower has been so impressive that he's earned the promotion to AAA Lehigh Valley.

The move was announced Friday as the Fightins lose their lights out closer. He had 7 saves and a 1.20 ERA with 29 strikeouts over 15 innings pitched.

But when a team has a guy throwing 101 on the farm, and a bullpen as suspect as the Phillies',he won't be in AA-ball for long.

Fellow reliever Kyle Simon has also earned a call-up to the IronPigs. Righty Colton Murray joins Reading from Clearwater.
