Romine Headlines 2010 Thunder Roster

The Trenton Thunder released their 2010 roster.  Let me get the names out right away, then I’ll add some thoughts later…

PITCHERS (13): Cory Arbiso, Wilkins Arias, Jeremy Bleich, Noel Castillo, Wilkin De La Rosa, Grant Duff, Christian Garcia, D.J. Mitchell, Lance Pendleton, David Phelps, Ryan Pope, Josh Schmidt, Eric Wordekemper

CATCHERS (2): Jose Gil, Austin Romine

INFIELDERS (7): David Adams, Neall French, Brandon Laird, Luis Nunez, Kevin Smith, Justin Snyder, Marcos Vechionacci

OUTFIELDERS (4): Daniel Brewer, Edwar Gonzalez, Austin Krum, Damon Sublett

The first thing that jumped out at me is that there are 26 guys on this roster.  They can only carry 24 active players, so two guys are either going up, going down or “getting hurt.”  There is no break after the first four games of the season, so they will need a fifth starter…so they can’t can’t buy themselves some time that way as they have in season’s past.  Just based on the numbers, one pitcher and one infielder will likely find themselves inactive come April 8th.

Austin Romine and D.J. Mitchell unquestionably headline the newcomers in Trenton this season…Mitchell, being a pitcher, could move much quicker than Romine, although Romine will likely be the player most people keep an eye on this season. 

10 pitchers return from last season, but only one catcher, three infielders and two outfielders.  Here’s hoping Noel Castillo got better, and here’s wondering what Josh Schmidt and Eric Wordekemper have to do to start a season in Scranton.

    there are a lot of players at swb and trenton who probably are on a short leash this year. in trenton, i have to believe that arbiso, duff, schmidt, wordekemper, gonzalez, snyder and vechionacci will be moved up or out by 6/1.

  3. Stephen Says:

    Duff and Snyder are very good prospects. Schmidt has proved himself. I don’t see why for those guys. The others will only if they get pushed by someone in A ball who needs to move up.
