Hey everyone, just wanted to check in really quickly because the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees just announced their Opening Day roster. It’s pretty much as expected, except that Ryan Pope is going to start the season on the disabled list. I’m not sure why, but I’m sure Donnie Collins will have it covered.

Rotation: David Phelps, Hector Noesi, Adam Warren, D.J. Mitchell, Andrew Brackman

Bullpen: Kevin Whelan, Buddy Carlyle, George Kontos, Lance Pendleton, Amaury Sanit, Andy Sisco, Eric Wordekemper

Catchers: Jesus Montero, Jose Gil

Infielders: Doug Bernier, Brandon Laird, Ramiro Pena, Kevin Russo, Jorge Vazquez

Outfielders: Dan Brewer, Chris Dickerson, Greg Golson, Justin Maxwell, Jordan Parraz

Disabled list: RHP Warner Madrigal, LHP Jose Ortegano, RHP Ryan Pope, RHP Josh Schmidt, C Ryan Baker, C P.J. Pilittere, INF Luis Nunez

Long-time Yankees minor league catcher Pilittere was signed earlier this week. He was not in spring training with the Yankees. As usual, the Triple-A roster has a lot of guys on the DL, some of which are probably phantom injuries meant to open roster spots.
