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.

About the bloggers
A Baltimore native, Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 14 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 10 seasons, including the past six with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Steve Gould is an assistant sports editor for The Sun, overseeing Orioles coverage. The Columbia native joined The Sun as a sports copy editor in 2006 after graduating from the University of Maryland.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for a lot longer than Steve Gould has been on this earth. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer. If you want more of his insight on the Orioles and other sports issues, check out his personal blog -- The Schmuck Stops Here.
