The Altoona Curve have released their Opening Day 25 man roster. The top prospects on the roster are Alen Hanson, Nick Kingham and Joely Rodriguez, who were all among the top 15 prospects in our 2014 Prospect Guide. We had mentioned that Stetson Allie will begin his season there, but for now, he is being held back in Extended Spring Training due to an oblique injury. Below, you will find the complete roster. Left-handed pitchers are marked with an asterisk. We will have a complete season preview of the Curve on Tuesday.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
