With Robert Andino's late addition to the Triple-A Norfolk Tides roster, there became a numbers crunch in the middle infield and Blake Davis became the casualty.
The 26-year-old shortstop, who was expected to play in a utility role at Norfolk, was a last-minute addition to the Double-A Bowie Baysox roster. Davis batted .235 with two home runs and 19 RBIs while splitting time between the short-season Aberdeen IronBirds and Tides last season.
Pedro Florimon, who hit .267 with nine home runs and 68 RBIs in 115 games for the Single-A Frederick Keys last season, was expected to be the starting shortstop in Bowie before Davis joined the roster. It's unclear how the playing time will break down now.
Two other players were also added to the Baysox roster in preparation of tonight's Opening Day game against the Richmond Flying Squirrels -- right-handed pitcher Armando Gabino and outfielder Miguel Abreu.
