Phillies Send Santana to Houston as PTBN

The Phillies sent outfielder Domingo Santana to the Houston Astros as the player to be named in the Hunter Pence trade.

Santana, 19, had been playing with Class A Lakewood. He has been assigned to Class A Lexington.

He was hitting .269 with 29 doubles, four triples, seven home runs, 32 RBIs and four stolen bases for the BlueClaws. Baseball America had him the ninth-best prospect in the organization before the season.

The Phillies traded right-hander Jarred Cosart, first baseman Jonathan Singleton, right-hander Josh Zeid and a player to be named to the Astros on July 29 for Pence. The Astros had a group of players they could choose as the player to be named before settling on Santana.
