Minor league game previews -- April 19
The Triple-A Norfolk Tides return home to play the Gwinnett Braves at Harbor Park, and the Double-A Bowie Baysox continue their road trip against the Erie SeaWolves.
The Single-A Frederick Keys travel to meet the Potomac Nationals, and the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds wrap up their series against the Hagerstown Suns.
One tidbit to note for today's game between the Baysox and SeaWolves -- St. Paul's graduate Steve Johnson pitches for Bowie against Erie's Jon Kibler, who is a Calvert Hall alum.
Shorebirds third baseman Tyler Kolodny was selected as the South Atlantic League Player of the Week for the opening period of the season (April 8-18). The 22-year-old infielder leads the league with six home runs so far this year.
Also, there were a series of roster moves in the organization.
The Shorebirds placed catcher Justin Dalles on the disabled list after he was injured in a collision at home plate in Sunday's game against Hagerstown.
In order to replace Dalles on the roster, catcher Luis Bernardo was transferred from Frederick. It's unclear how much time Dalles will be out of action.
In another move, shortstop Blake Davis was promoted from the Baysox to Norfolk. Infielder Matthew Tucker was added to Bowie's roster in order to replace Davis.
