Hey guys, the Lakewood Blueclaws have released there opening day roster for 2017 and they’ll be loaded as I anticipated (here’s the complete roster): http://www.milb.com/documents/8/1/8/221921818/Lakewood_BlueClaws_2017_Roster_Opening_Day_Preliminary_8p506c47.pdf

Lakewood was my pick for most talented team at the conclusion of the team previews.  They’ll be led by the 1st overall pick in the 2016 draft Mickey Moniak, and young fireballers Sixto Sanchez and Adonis Medina.  The middle infield combo of 2B) Daniel Brito and SS) Arquimedes Gamboa are intriguing as are young lefties Bailey Falter and Jojo Romero.  We’ll see who else stands out.

The most surprising omissions are 2nd round pick RHP) Kevin Gowdy and 3rd rd pick (SS, 3B) Cole Stobbe.  I was also hoping to see slugging RF) Jhailyn Ortiz but I thought he was a bit of a long shot.
