Roster Questions

SECOND UPDATE: 2B Kike Hernandez tweeted out that he would be returning to Corpus Christi and based on the fact that they are driving, I think it is safe to say that RHP Brady Rodgers, LHP Theron Geith and OF Andrew Aplin are headed for Corpus Christi as well. Add Delino DeShields and Rene Garcia to the Corpus list.

UPDATE: According to tweets that came out this morning, we know a few players are on their way to Iowa (Low A Quad Cities):

C Brian Holberton
IF Jack Mayfield
1B Chase McDonald
3B Tyler White

I've been getting a lot of questions about when the minor league rosters are going to be posted. Unfortunately, they aren't available yet and last year, they didn't post them until about three days before the minor league season started.

It is my understanding that tentative rosters were posted for the team a few days ago, but that information isn't public because there is usually a lot of adjustment to them right up until the last minute. I believe that everyone is flying out to respective teams on Sunday and I would imagine some info will start to trickle out then, but I really don't expect rosters to be posted until probably Monday (guessing).

I promise that I will post them as soon as I have them in my hot little hands. In the meantime, in case you missed it, there was news a few days ago on where three of the Astros top prospects will land. Mark Appel and Carlos Correa were reported to be headed to Lancaster to start the season, and Mike Foltynewicz will be in Oklahoma City.

I wish I could tell you more, but that is all that has been made public at this time.
