2011: Altoona and Indy

Longtime reader, infrequent poster (lost my old password/email)....

As I've patiently waited for success to come at the MLB level,  I've gained more and more interest in the minor league affiliates.  There's been lots of discussion on where players like Locke or Morris might start next year, so I thought it might be interesting to project Indy and Altoona's lineups for next year.     If there's a "/", I mean a platoon at a position. 

Let me know what you all think....


Altoona 2011

1B Anderson/Fryer

2B Ford, Negrych/Harrison?

SS Holt, Picart

3B Farrell

OF Hernandez, Lambo, Marte, Latimore?     Grossman by July?

C Sanchez, Newton, Skelton?

SP  Locke, Morris, Adcock, Pribanic, Leach

RP Erickson, Krol, Cox, Colla, Boleska, Moreno, Aguero



Indy 2011

1B  Hague

2b Negrych/Friday/Harrison

SS Cicaro/Diaz/D'Arnaud
3B Mercer

OF Presley

C   Watts/Pit catcher #3

SP Owens, Wilson, Crotta

Swingman: Watson

RP  Moskos, Dubee, Hankins?, Hughes?, Molleken?

At some point, NH talked about Negrych and seemed to consider him an organizational player. He played quite well in a short stint at Indy this year. However, noting the logjam that may ensue, maybe he's stuck in Altoona again?

Lambo's done pretty decent at Altoona given his age, but with only a .700ish OPS since the trade, maybe leave him there for a bit.

 The gaps on the Indy roster (OF and Pitching) I assume will be filled by marginal players who don't make the cut, and maybe players who are out of options but still stick (Morton, Clement, etc)...And Pearce may still get a 4th option as a result of his injuries.

This projection also assumes the departure of some minor league vets like H. Giminez or most current Indy /Altoona relievers over the age of 25.
