Nick Lodolo, the top prospect in the Cincinnati Reds organization, was promoted Tuesday from the Class AA Chattanooga Lookouts to Triple-A Louisville.
The left-handed Lodolo made 10 starts for the Lookouts and compiled a 2-1 record with a 1.84 earned run average. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder racked up 68 strikeouts and allowed just nine walks in his 44 innings worked.
Blisters on his left hand prevented Lodolo, the seventh overall pick in the 2019 Major League Baseball draft out of TCU, from making more appearances with Chattanooga.
Lodolo follows the promotion of Hunter Greene to Triple-A in mid June. The historically hard-throwing Greene has made eight starts for Louisville, compiling a 2-5 record and a 4.23 ERA.
