Bullpen (All RHP): Hunter Carnevale, Julian Hilario, Jake Keubler, Bret Mitchell, Tim Peterson, Paul Sewald
Matz is the biggest name here with the highest ceiling. I’m looking forward to seeing how Ynoa, Lara and Cessa handle full-season ball after nice seasons in 2012 in Brooklyn. Hilario throws hard out of the bullpen. I’ll have a little more on Matt Bowman for Opening Day on Thursday.
Kevin Plawecki, Jeff Glenn, Nelfi Zapata
Plawecki pointed out that he caught nearly this entire staff, with the exception of Matz and convert project Jake Keubler in Brooklyn last year, so this is a pretty comfortable situation for 2012’s supplemental first round pick.
1B – Jayce Boyd, 2B Chad Zurcher, SS Philip Evans, 3B Cole Frenzel, UTIL Yucarybert De La Cruz and UTIL Jeff Reynolds
CF – Brandon Nimmo, LF Stefan Sabol, RF Eudy Pina and OF Gregory Pron
Nimmo was his usual outgoing, enthusiastic self on Tuesday.
Update 4:06: I was just told that this roster is not “official” yet. All the same, all of these guys are here, at media day and on the field.
