My take on the Beloit Snappers 2009 Roster

The last three of days I looks at potential rosters for the Rochester Red Wings the New Britain Rock Cats and the Fort Myers Miracle. Today I am concluding the exercise by examining the potential roster of the Beloit Snappers

Beloit Snappers, Midwest League (A)

OF Angel Morales
OF Aaron Hicks
IF Starling De Los Santos
OF Ozzie Lewis
C Danny Rams
C Alexander Soto
C/UT Gregory Yersich
IF Ramon Santana
IF/OF Mark Dolenc
IF Juan Richardson
1B/DH Jonathan Waltenbury
OF Andrew Schmiesing
IF Nicholas Papasan

SP Tom Stuifbarger
SP David Bromberg
SP Dan Osterbrock
SP Michael Tarsi
SP Shooter Hunt
RP Briank Kirwan
RP Herly Reyes
RP Danny Berlind
RP Michael Allen
RP David Martin
RP Chris Anderson
RP/SP Steven Hirschfield

As you can see there a lot of players who were playing with the Elizabethton Twins (Apalachian League, Rookie) last season in this roster. In addition, Tom Stuifbarger, the surprising WBC competitor in included here. As I have been mentioning in these exercises, these are my thoughts and probably somewhat different from those of the Twins' organization. When you get down to A or high A, it is difficult to predict, because some of the older players listed in this potential roster, who have been under-performing might get cut at the end of the minor league spring training camp.

What are your thoughts?

So then, where do you see Jeff Lanning starting the season? He doesn't have a spot on any of your minor league rosters, yet he caught all of the playoff games for Elizabethton last season.

Jeff Lanning is in extended spring training in Ft. Myers. He will probably start again at Elizabethton, unless there are issues at Beloit. Soto and Tindor are the catchers there.
