Following yet another strong outing for Harrisburg, Brad Meyers has been finally promoted to AAA.
Meyers was 3-2 with a 2.48 ERA in six starts for Harrisburg, throwing 36⅓ innings and allowing 35 hits with 38 strikeouts. The 25-year-old has been ranked by Baseball America as the #27 prospect in the Washington organization, despite missing most of the 2010 season with a foot injury.
Replacing Myers on the Harrisburg roster is LHP Matt Chico, who has been 0-2 with a 5.06 ERA in eight relief appearances for Syracuse. Chico is a former major-leaguer, posting a mediocre 7-9, 4.63 line as a 24-year-old in 2007, but has pitched just once for the parent club since his July 2008 TJ surgery.
