The Phillies acquired 25 year old SS Devin Lohman from the Reds today to add some depth to their minor league middle infield corps. Lohman was the Reds third round pick in the 2010 draft and spent much of the last two seasons at AA Pensacola in the Reds organization.
The Cal State Long Beach product hit .245/.310/.352 in 375 plate appearances last year in AA, with 5HR 29RBI and 8SB. Most of Lohman’s time was spent at SS, where he committed 22 errors in 82 games. Lohman will also occasionally fill in at 2B. Expect to see Lohman in Reading opening day.
