Now that we are only a handful of days from the Elizabethton Twins starting their short season I have been kicking around in my head on what the roster might look like initially.Most likely it will consist of some holdovers from last years team, some players from the 2017 GCL Twins and some new talent from this most recent MLB draft.

 

Here are some of my thoughts on the roster construction. Obviously, the roster will be more robust than this but I'm just throwing out some names.

 

Who am I missing?Some names that shouldn't be on this list?  

Have at it, tear it down and let me know what you think.

 

Pitchers:

RHP Jordan Balazovic

RHP Cole Sands

RHP Pedro Garcia

RHP Landon Leach

LHP Matt Jones

RHP Miguel De Jesus

RHP Tyler Benninghoff

LHP Ryley Widell

RHP Juan Gamez

RHP Josh Winder

 

Catcher:

Chris Williams

Janigson Villalobos

Ryan Jeffers

Andy Cosgrove

 

 

1B:Kolton Kendrick

2B: Yunior Severino/ Emmanuel Morel

SS:Ricky De La Torre

3B: Victor Tademo

 

Utility: Alex Robles

 

Outfield:

Jared Akins

DaShawn Keirsey

Colton Burns

Trevor Larnach

Matt Albanese

It appears Jordan Balazovic was called up Cedar Rapids and is dealing it pretty good today.Perhaps we won't see him at E-Town anytime soon if he keeps this up.

I had Jordan pegged for Elizabethton as well.He must have impressed in extended spring training.Hope he can stay in Cedar Rapids and if he keeps pitching like that we got a steal with that pick in the draft.

This was my thinking too....that he had a bit of an "off" season last year.They'd want to slow play it for awhile.  

 

Seth mentioned that he had a great spring, however.

 

Ted rolled with this tweet summarizing Balazovic's great outing:

I would picture a few of the signees starting at Ft. Myers, or whatever their "draft pick" camp is before going to Eliz.

 

Yes, be interested to see what movement happens as we approach mid-July in the system as a whole.
