Matt Harvey had his rehab assignment transferred to Double-A Bowie and he’s starting tonight.
Connor Norby is leading off and playing second base, followed by center fielder Colton Cowser and designated hitter Coby Mayo in their Eastern League debuts.
The Orioles released infielder AJ Graffanino from Bowie’s roster. He was acquired from the Braves in the Tommy Milone trade in 2020.
