The Phillies have called up pitcher Henderson Alvarez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Alvarez, 27, agreed to a minor league deal with the Phillies last month after making seven starts for the Long Island Ducks in the independent Atlantic League. In three starts with Lehigh Valley, Alvarez yielded seven runs (six earned) on 19 hits and six walks with eight strikeouts in 19 innings.

Alvarez hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2015 due to shoulder injuries, but the Phillies have nothing to lose by giving him an audition through the end of the year.
