Alex Montoyo, the youngest son of Durham manager Charlie Montoyo, will be with the Bulls on Saturday when they face the Rays.
Alex, 2 1/2, suffers from a heart condition that also has limited his ability to travel. Charlie said they decided to make the trip after their cardiologist said Alex was healthy enough that he doesn't need another checkup until August.
Alex, brother Tyson and mom Sam fly to North Carolina on Friday and will stay until the Bulls leave for their April 8 Opening Day game at Norfolk. If all goes well, Charlie said, they'll return in June and stay through July.
