With the conclusion of Spring Training this weekend, the rosters for the Twins minor league affiliates have been set. The Beloit Roster is below.

Evan Bigley OF Elizabethton 10th Round – 2008
Michael Harrington OF Elizabethton 13th Round – 2008
Ozzie Lewis OF Beloit 21st Round – 2007
Angel Morales OF Elizabethton 3rd Round – 2007
Adan Severino OF Elizabethton 26th Round – 2008

That’s 15 guys from last year’s Elizabethton team that won their league.

Lots of guys on the disabled list as well.  Those include – Brian Kirwan, Curtis Leavitt, Blake Martin, Michael Tarsi, Thomas Wright, Juan Richardson, Paul Kelly, and Andrew Thompson.

Players taken in last year’s draft – the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 10th, 13th (2), 21st, 26th, and 28th rounds.

Two first round picks – Shooter Hunt (an exciting prospect) and Hank Sanchez (nearing his last chance in the organization).

I’m most excited to see Shooter Hunt, Angel Morales, and Dan Osterbrock. I’m kind of disappointed that Aaron Hicks isn’t on this roster but I’m sure he’ll be moved up once the weather warms up (much like Revere last year).

    • Me too, I should note that the Snappers opener is tonight. So far, not so good – they trail 3-0 in the fourth.
