The Harrisburg Senators, Double-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, and the Eastern League announced today that outfielder Adam Loewen will be taking the roster spot of teammate Shawn Bowman on the Eastern Division, Eastern League All-Star team.

 The move ensures that New Hampshire will remain the league-leader in number of representatives at the Eastern League All-Star Game with six on July 14 in Harrisburg.  Loewen will join fellow Fisher Cat outfielders Darin Mastroianni and Eric Thames, pitchers Trystan Magnuson and Kyle Drabek, as well as catcher Brian Jeroloman. 

 Other All-Star roster moves recently announced are as follows.  For the Eastern Division RHP Josh Schmidt (Trenton) is taking the place of teammate RHP Lance Pendleton, who is attending, but is unable to pitch.  Also RHP Drew Naylor (Reading) is now on the team over Michael Schwimmer (Reading), who has been promoted to AAA. Bowman is injured, and will neither play nor attend the game.

 For the Western Division RHP Paolo Espino (Akron) has been added, taking the place of RHP Bryce Stowell (Akron) who has been promoted to AAA Columbus.  RHP Clayton Tanner (Richmond) has been added, taking the place of RHP Daryl Maday (Richmond) who has been promoted to AAA Fresno.
