The Likely 25-Man Roster

Just for reference.

C Ryan Doumit, Jason Jaramillo

1B Adam LaRoche

2B Freddy Sanchez, Ramon Vazquez

SS Jack Wilson, Luis Cruz

3B Andy LaRoche

CF Nate McLouth

OF Brandon Moss, Nyjer Morgan, Eric Hinske, Craig Monroe

SP Paul Maholm, Ian Snell, Zach Duke, Ross Ohlendorf, Jeff Karstens

RP Matt Capps, John Grabow, Tyler Yates, Craig Hansen, Evan Meek, Donnie Veal, Sean Burnett, Jesse Chavez*

*One of the last five relievers will not make the 25-man; perhaps Meek will be placed on the DL.

There isn't anything too surprising here, and there's nothing that would have shocked me too much going into Spring Training, with the possible exception of the demotion of Tom Gorzelanny. The rotation looks fine; Karstens was the right choice for the last spot. I'd still like to see the Pirates grab another outfielder and reliever.
