The top two draft choices from the most recent draft are now with the Dayton Dragons.
The Reds promoted first pick Phillip Ervin from Billings in the Pioneer League to Dayton in the Midwest League.
Ervin joins the Reds' other first round pick Michael Lorenzen, who joined the Dragons earlier this month. Ervin was the 27th pick overall in June and Lorenzen was the 38th pick overall.
Lorenzen, who pitched and played outfield for Cal State Fullerton, has been pitching out of the bullpen in Dayton. He has a 1-0 record in nine games and has not allowed a run in 8-1/3 innings. He made one start for the Reds' Arizona League rookie team before his promotion to Dayton.

The Reds promoted the top pick from the 2011 draft Robert Stephenson to Bakersfield in mid-July.
