BELOIT, WI - The Oakland Athletics have announced that pitcher Dylan Covey has been added to the roster of the Beloit Snappers. Covey was the Athletics fourth round selection in the 2013 draft out of the University of San Diego and Beloit will be his second stop in professional baseball.
To make room for Covey, pitcher Deyvi Jimenez is being transferred to the Vermont Lake Monsters.
