West Virginia and Bradenton Rosters Set
The 2010 West Virginia Power roster, plus the 2010 Bradenton Marauders roster, were both set today. The West Virginia roster can be found on their official site, while the Bradenton roster was announced through this press release.
The Indianapolis roster has been partially released, although it’s still incomplete.
My guess on the lineups/rotations is as follows:
Kyle Morgan will probably get some time in the outfield, as well as backing up Baker at first base. Jason Erickson, Kyle McPherson, and Maurice Bankston will probably work out of the pen, although each player could see some significant innings, possibly piggybacking starts.
I’ve got Brett Lorin listed at the level on the BUCCO Fans Player Page index, as I think Lorin will start the season in Bradenton when he returns from his injury. The Bradenton roster has a lot of talent, with some of the guys (Sanchez, Morris, Locke) candidates for a quick ascension to Altoona. Diego Moreno, Tom Boleska, Tyler Cox, and Brian Leach add strong arms out of the bullpen. I could see Cox and Leach piggybacking with Adcock and Erickson, while Moreno and Boleska work 2-3 inning outings out of the pen. Michael Colla and Noah Krol are two more interesting bullpen prospects at the level.
A few omissions were Erik Huber, Harrison Bishop, Chris Cullen, and Chris Garcia. I stored them on the State College roster for now, at least until official word comes out. Huber, Bishop, and Cullen were on the Bradenton roster last year, and Garcia was expected to play there this season. The Altoona and West Virginia rosters have been announced, so either these players are injured to start the year, or they’ve been released.
