Hey guys, the Asheville Tourists (Rockies) released there official opening day roster this morning.  It will be a talented squad led by high profile right hander Riley Pint.  Pint was selected 4th overall in the 2016 draft out of high school in the Kansas City area, he’s been clocked as high as 102 MPH and has two very good secondary pitches.

Some other names that stand out include:  3rd basemen, Colton Welker and Tyler Nevin and outfielders Manuel Melendez and Willie Abreu.

For scouting reports on many of these players and a whole lot more I’ve attached a link to my 2017 Tourists team preview that landed on the site back in December.

At Notes from the Sally it’s all about live look scouting.  The Tourists are my home town team so expect plenty of write ups.

    texas seems like it often is the first organization to release rosters in the sally league – both this year and in 2016 the hickory roster was released on march 29th, several days ahead of any other roster. release in the league.
