I received the Bradenton roster this afternoon while I was on the road, heading to West Virginia for their media day. I only had enough time to pull over, post the roster, and get back on the road, so I didn’t get a chance to take a look at the details, and realize who was missing.
Victor Black and Brett Lorin are two names left off the list. Charlie at Bucs Dugout has an update on each player from Kyle Stark. Black is still in extended Spring Training, still behind on his schedule from his shoulder injury last year. Lorin tweaked his groin, which explains his absence.
I spoke with Kyle as well, and learned that each player is slated for high-A when they are ready to start their individual seasons. Also, as reported here over the off-season, Black is still in line to move to the bullpen.
