Almora received the call last night and was told to head to Philadelphia to join the team.
The move likely signals that Jorge Soler will go on the disabled list due to a hamstring injury.
Almora, 22, is a 6-foot-2, 190 lb outfielder with elite defensive skills. He is also an improving hitter, but he isn’t a power hitter. For a detailed scouting report on Almora, check out Today’s Knuckleball.
In 55 games with Triple-A Iowa, Almora has hit .318 with three home runs and 30 RBI.
In five minor-league seasons, he has hit .292 with 23 home runs and 178 RBI.
