The minor league season is just five days away, and Josh Norris has the full slate of rosters for the four full season affiliates plus Extended Spring Training and players rehabbing from injuries. You’ll notice that the Triple-A rotation is mostly empty at the moment, giving the impression that David Phelps, D.J. Mitchell, and Adam Warren still have a chance to crack the big league roster. Ravel Santana is currently listed under ExST and not rehab, which is good to see.
As expected, the Low-A Charleston squad is going to be stacked. Gary Sanchez is headed back there to start the season and will headline a lineup that also features Dante Bichette Jr., Cito Culver, Angelo Gumbs, Tyler Austin, Ben Gamel, and Mason Williams. Jose Campos and Bryan Mitchell highlight the pitching staff. I don’t see too many surprises in the rosters other than Evan DeLuca in ExST rather than Low-A, though it does stink that sleeper Matt Tracy is in the rehab group. I was looking forward to seeing him out of the chute.
