Blue Crabs complete 2016 roster before opening day
Just a day before its opening night game versus Lancaster at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf, the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs put the finishing touches on its roster for the 2016 season.
Just two days after signing former Washington Nationals second baseman Steve Lombardozzi Jr., the Blue Crabs signed three more players Wednesday to the 26-man complete roster.
The Blue Crabs re-signed pitcher Tim Sexton and signed catcher Adrian Martinez and outfielder Jon Dziomba. The team currently has 12 returning players on the roster.
Last season, Southern Maryland finished with a 69-71 overall record, winning the first-half Freedom Division regular season title with a 42-28 record, clinching a spot into the postseason. The Blue Crabs claimed the Freedom Division championship series over 2014 defending champion Lancaster, then fell to Somerset in four games in the Atlantic League
