Additional Knights Roster Move – April 14, 2017
C Chris O’Dowd promoted to Charlotte from Birmingham (Double-A)
Roster 25 Active
Notes: Catcher Chris O’Dowd was activated off of Birmingham’s disabled list today and promoted to Charlotte. O’Dowd has yet to appear in a game this season. Last year, the 26-year-old catcher appeared in one game (May 29 at Rochester) with the Charlotte Knights and went 0-for-1 at the plate with three walks. He was signed by the Chicago White Sox as a free agent on April 5, 2016. Originally drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 23rd round of the 2012 draft out of Dartmouth College, O’Dowd is the son of former Colorado Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd. Earlier in the day, outfielder Willy Garcia was recalled to Chicago to take the place of outfielder Melky Cabrera, who was placed on the Paternity List.
