Lauren is in the early stages of her pregnancy. The Eflin’s were married in December 2020, according to a social media post.
The Orlando, Florida native — who will be 27-years-old in April — has spent the last five seasons pitching for the Phillies. Things could get complicated if Eflin and the Phillies make the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season.
If they do make the playoffs, Eflin could be pitching when his wife is due to have the baby unless the baby comes early.
