Fresno Roster


It's only in a PDF, so I'll type it out:

Pitchers:
Scott Atchinson
Travis Blackley
Brian Bowles
Dan Giese
Matt Kinney
Tim Lincecum
Ryan Meaux
Pat Misch
Scott Munter
Matt Palmer
Billy Sadler
Erick Threets
Brian Wilson

Catchers:
Justin Knoedler
Guillermo Rodriguez

Infielders:
William Bergolla
Tomas De La Rosa
Luis Figueroa
Justin Leone
Scott McClain
Ivan Ochoa
Chad Santos
Tyler Von Schell

Outfielders:
Fred Lewis
Dan Ortmeier
Nate Schierholtz
Clay Timpner


The outfield has some real offensive potential. The infield looks lackluster in terms of prospects, but they should be a good Triple-A team. McClain was the PCL's MVP in 2006 with Sacramento, and Justin Leone was a 20 HR hitter in Portland last year.

The pitching staff is the most interesting (No [sign in to see URL] be in extended ST). The biggest surprise for me was no Pereira, but he must be in CT. Still, a Lincecum/Misch/Palmer start to the rotation will be good. No Sunny Kim either. Suddenly, the bullpen looks shallow, especially considering how many of the bullpen guys are likely to be called up sometime this season.

Pereira had some major problems in Fresno. I'm more surprised that they made him tough it out for half a season than at his current demotion (particularly considering how conservative the team is with many of their prospects).

Re: Fresno Roster


I haven't heard of Palmer [sign in to see URL] the word on him? Is he a legit prospect or is he an older guy that has no future?

He's an older guy, and while I wouldn't say he has no future, he's probably not a likely major leaguer beyond being a reliever or mop-up guy. He turned 28 this offseason, as his progress was slowed by spending the parts of 4 seasons in Double-A before finally getting his first shot at Triple-A last season. He didn't embarrass himself, putting up a solid [sign in to see URL] ERA in the hitter friendly park. Recently moved into starting. Might get a chance to help if the bullpen this year is as bad as it seemed in ST, but he's way down the line.

Re: Fresno Roster


threets as a starter should be interesting in a car accident sort of a way.

So can someone explain why, Threets is in the rotation in Fresno while Sanchez is in the bullpen with the big club?

If anything, Sanchez needs to be in Fresneck, learing to be a starter. And Threets has been around long enough he either needs to be in the show or out of the organization.

Again, I think this is a case of the organization thinking "win now" instead of building for the future.

Just sayin'

I think the Threets starting this is similar to the Aardsma starting a couple of years ago: it's designed to get him more innings, since Threets has lost so much time to injury, he needs to rack them up a bit.

Re: Fresno Roster


Well that's the only reason why they would start Threets. However, even if they do get him more innings, is he really going to crack the roster of the big club this year? I'm still thinking it would be better to have Sanchez in AAA getting time as a starter instead of giving up runs out of the bullpen.

Just my $.02
