Left-handed pitcher Troy Patton was officially promoted to Norfolk, according to the team. It hasn't been announced when he will make his first start for the Tides, but Tuesday night's starter is listed as TBA, so use your best judgment.

In order to make room for Patton on the Tides' roster, right-hander Fredy Deza was sent back to Bowie.
