First rumored here in the comments, just confirmed through my sources, and now officially announced on MiLB.com — Cameron Selik is coming to Potomac.
As the headline says, this is one of several moves that were made today…
• OF Eury Perez was activated from the disabled list
• OF J.R. Higley was returned to Extended Spring Training (XST)
• RHP Dean Weaver was assigned from XST
• LHP Ryan Demmin was sent to XST
Selik last pitched for Hagerstown on Saturday. With Hagerstown traveling today from Georgia to Maryland, and Potomac headed to Kinston tomorrow night, he’s most likely going to make his first High-A start this weekend in North Carolina. So far, there has been no corresponding move to backfill Selik, but if/when that information comes to light, we’ll update this post.
UPDATE: Jeremy Mayo was activated and played last night with Brian Peacock placed on the DL. Cameron Selik was tracking pitches in Woodbridge so it’s apparent that these moves were made much earlier than announced, particularly as Mayo had been spotted in the bullpen earlier this series (though it’s not unusual for inactive guys to stay with the team).
