Reese McGuire Returns to West Virginia Roster

The West Virginia Power have activated catcher Reese McGuire off the disabled list today. To make room on the roster, catcher Francisco Diaz was transferred to the Jamestown roster. McGuire has been out for the last week with a groin contusion, but it only caused him to miss the minimum seven days for a disabled list stay. McGuire last played on April 25th and he spent his last two games before going on the DL, in the designated...
