Altoona Curve announces 2015 roster

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Altoona Curve has announced its tentative roster for the coming season:

CATCHERS
Jacob Stallings
Sebastian Valle

INFIELDERS
Josh Bell
Dan Gamache
Gift Ngoepe
Max Moroff
Edward Salcedo
Eric Wood

OUTFIELDERS
Willy Garcia
Keon Broxton
Stetson Allie
Jonathan Schwind

PITCHERS
Tyler Glasnow
Jason Creasy
Zack Dodson
Chad Kuhl
Angel Sanchez
Matt Benedict
Tom Harlan
Tyler Sample
Yhonathan Barrios
John Kuchno
Jhondaniel Medina
Josh Smith

On Twitter, the Curve also lists outfielder Junior Sosa. I believe Wilbur will be doing minor-league previews, so I'll save most of the analysis for him. Overall, this is an exciting roster led by two of the Pirates' best prospects in Glasnow and Bell. The placements of most of the top prospects will be no surprise, since many of them are on the 40-man roster and had been assigned to the Double-A level when they were cut from big-league camp. Besides the obvious prospects and semi-prospects (Glasnow, Bell, Garcia, Broxton, Ngoepe and Allie in particular), players to watch include Moroff, Wood, Kuhl and Creasy. Garcia, Broxton and Allie appear to be candidates to move up to Indianapolis if they hit well to start the season.
