2011 Indianapolis Indians Roster Announced

Owens will be one of the top prospects in Indianapolis to start the season.

Here are the players who will be with the Indianapolis Indians on Opening Day:

Catchers: Dusty Brown, Wyatt Toregas

Infielders: Pedro Ciriaco, Chase D’Arnaud, Brian Friday, Matt Hague, Josh Harrison, Andy Marte

Outfielders: Gorkys Hernandez, Andrew Lambo, Alex Presley, Corey Wimberly

Pitchers: Brian Burres, Sean Gallagher, Chris Leroux, Daniel McCutchen, Dan Meyer, Daniel Moskos, Rudy Owens, Justin Thomas, Cesar Valdez, Tony Watson, Justin Wilson, Tim Wood

The starting rotation looks to include Burres, Gallagher, McCutchen, Owens, and Wilson.  I would expect that Brad Lincoln will join that group when he gets off the disabled list. Bryan Morris and Jeff Locke should also be arriving early in the season.

The Pirates signed Wood last week, and signed Meyer last night, giving the bullpen some depth.

Tyler Yates isn’t on any rosters due to an injury.  An update on his condition should come later this week.
