Orioles executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias said Wednesday that the team plans to use Prince George’s Stadium in Bowie as its alternate training site in April to replace the first month of the Triple-A season. However, the home of the Orioles’ Double-A Baysox will be more dedicated to Triple-A players and major league depth than younger prospects the way it was last summer. Elias said Heston Kjerstad, who is recovering from myocarditis and hasn’t taken part in any baseball activities since the Orioles selected him second overall last June, will report there once that site opens instead of going to major league camp in Florida.
