The Reds Promote First Round Draft Choice Phillip Ervin

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 played in 34 games at Billings, hitting .326 with eight home runs and 29 RBI.  The speedster from Samford University in Alabama has stolen 12 bases in as many attempts.

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.

Ervin and Lorenzen join the top pick from the 2012 draft, starting pitcher Nick Travieso on the Dragons' roster.

Travieso is 5-3 in 11 starts for Dayton with a 4.85 ERA.

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