Four Baysox players were selected to represent the Western Division squad in the Eastern League All-Star Game. Starting pitcher Zach Britton, left fielder Tyler Henson, first baseman Joel Guzman and relief pitcher Pedro Beato all received nods for the contest.
Britton, however, will not participate in the game because of his Triple-A promotion, as well as his participation in the MLB Futures Game as part of All-Star Weekend in Anaheim, Calif.
Also, the Shorebirds placed third baseman Tyler Stampone on the disabled list with a left hand injury and transferred infielder Michael Mooney to Delmarva from the GCL Orioles in order to take his roster spot.
