Outfielder Drew Poulk has been placed on the disabled list and he has been replaced by another outfielder, Kurtis Muller who has been promoted from Billings.

The Dragons roster remains at the Midwest League limit of 25.

Poulk had been bothered by a hand injury and was a late scratch from the lineup on Saturday night, although he entered the game and delivered a base hit on the final play with Billy Hamilton scoring the winning run on an error on the play.

Poulk has played in 19 games for Dayton this season, hitting .274 with one homer and 10 RBI’s.

Muller was in the Dragons opening night starting lineup to start the season but has been with Billings since the Pioneer League season started in June.
