Steve Bumbry to DL, outfielder Stantrel Smith added
After sustaining a concussion during the May 7 home game against Bridgeport, outfielder Steve Bumbry is still dealing with symptoms and has yet to return to the Revolution lineup. He has been placed on the disabled list as his treatment continues, and outfielder Stantrel Smith has been signed to the active roster. York’s roster remains at 27 active players, with the June 1 deadline for all Atlantic League rosters to be at 25 looming. There is still plenty of time for the roster to figure itself out, via MLB signings, injuries and so forth. But cuts remain a possibility.
Smith has previous playing experience in the Atlantic League. In 50 games for Bridgeport last year, he hit .244 with a homer and 11 RBI. Mark Mason’s commitment to running remains strong with the signing of Smith, as during his 10-year professional career the 30-year-old has swiped 279 bases. His career-best season as a professional came in 2011 with the Edinburg Roadrunners, when he batted .305 with two home runs and 46 RBI in 88 games, (42 steals). Smith set a career-high in steals the following season with Edinburg, pillaging 59 bases. He was selected in the 16th round of the 2003 draft by the Anaheim Angels.
Smith is active and available for the series in Sugar Land, May 19-22.
