The Triple-A Louisville Bats made two roster moves this afternoon. Steve Selsky was placed on the disabled list with a meniscus injury in his left knee. Replacing him on the roster will be outfielder Kyle Waldrop, who was promoted from Double-A Pensacola.
In his time over the last two seasons with the Blue Wahoos at the Double-A level, Kyle Waldrop has posted these stats:
