Camden native Mike MacDonald will be wearing the Portland Sea Dogs uniform for the first time on the Hadlock Field mound Tuesday night.
MacDonald is scheduled to start Tuesday night for Portland in a 7 p.m. games against the Reading Phillies.
MacDonald, 30, was signed by the Red Sox July 8 and assigned to Portland. In his first start, at Trenton, MacDonald tweaked his hamstring in the first inning and landed on the disabled list. He will be activated for today’s game.
MacDonald has pitched as a pro at Hadlock Field before, when he was with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, an affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Since being drafted out of the University of Maine, MacDonald spent most of his pro career in the Blue Jays organization.
He was pitching for the Somerset Patriots of the independent Atlantic League when the Red Sox signed him.
