Single-A Great Lakes pitcher Victor Arano has been sent to the Phillies to complete the August 7 trade for starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez.

Arano joins former Loons teammate Jesmuel Valentin as a component of the trade.

A 19-year-old righty from Mexico, Arano had a 4.08 ERA in 86 innings for Great Lakes with 83 strikeouts against 108 baserunners.
