Hey guys, the Charleston Riverdogs (Yankees) released there opening day roster today.  You can find the article here:  https://www.milb.com/riverdogs/news/rutherford-five-yankees-top-30-prospects-headline-riverdogs-opening-day-roster/c-221919720/t-196097258

It’s a loaded squad led by high profile CF Blake Rutherford plus toolsy OF’s Estavan Florial and Leonardo Molina and young backstop Donny Sands.  I’m also intrigued by SP’ers Albert Abreu and Freicer Perez and shortstop Diego Castillo.

The omissions that stand out to me are:  pitchers Austin DeCarr and Drew Finley and some of the high profile J2 signings from a couple of years ago mainly Wilkerman and Dermis Garcia.  But despite the omissions this should be a really strong club.

Hey guys, the Lexington Legends (Royals) released there opening day roster recently. You can find that here:  http://www.milb.com/roster/index.jsp?sid=t495

It’ll be a talented group led by (C) Meibrys Viloria, (CF, RF) Khalil Lee and pitchers Garrett Davila and Nolan Watson.

The notable omissions re kids that aren’t making the jump to full season yet.  (CF, RF) Seuly Matias, SS) Jeison Guzman and RHP) Ashe Russell.  And (SS) Nicky Lopez who’s probably heading to Wilmington.  It’s a good squad even without this group.

They’ll be headlined by starting pitchers Matthias Dietz and Alex Wells.  CF Ryan McKenna and SS Irving Ortega are intriguing as well.  We’ll see who else stands out.

The most notable omissions are the college arms: Cody Sedlock and Keegan Akin.  And also OF) Austin Hays.  Looks like they’ll all be headed for Frederick to start the season.   It should still be a very squad.
