We will begin to see some formal minor league roster announcements soon. The formal announcement will come directly from the Timber Rattlers, not the Brewers. All four minor league affiliates will likely send out their press releases within an hour or so of each other once the Brewers have given them the official go-ahead to do so.

Opening Night is Thursday 4/6!

NOTE: Last season, the affiliates released their rosters on Monday AM (as if the Brewers' big league season opener didn't make it a busy enough day!)

Feel free to link to any formal notices you see here.

Often we learn via farmhand tweets, who has been assigned where, prior to the formal affiliate announcements. We'll link to any of those posts in this thread as they come out.

As you might know, we use the "Your 2017" threads to post and link to feature stories that are outside the scope of game activity covered in the Daily Link Report.

These threads have become among the most popular for viewing here, and we look forward to kicking them off formally.

Please don't speculate here at this time, this is an anxious time for many on the farm, and unfortunately we're also likely going to learn about more player releases in the next few days, in addition to those players excited about their assignments.

AUDIO via the Rattler Radio Podcast posted Fri. 3/31: "Kyle Lobner and Chris Mehring talk about Kyle's latest Frosty Microbrew on timberrattlers.com and (for a change of pace) Kyle asks Chris questions about Chris' trip to Minor League Spring Training and a possible Timber Rattlers roster."

SP Aaron Myers will be a TRat

Loved in interview hearing how much Erickson loves Mario at catcher and that he may spend all year at age 18 at catcher! That'd be extremely impressive!

Neither Myers or Roegner were projected to make the T-Rats roster on the pinned roster projections. Should be interesting to see who is squeezed out.

Well, there are a number of guys who probably were on the projections who might be hurt. (I might have missed them, but I can't say I've seen Pennington or Fox in the minor league box scores. Likewise, Grist and Owenby have been missing among likely Carolina pitchers, which would open spots for others to be promoted.)

Plus, another spot may come from starting Kirby in extended spring training to better control his innings, which one of the podcasts said they were leaning toward.

Feliciano, Orimoloye, Webb should be exciting to watch. Maybe Lara, but I sense he will be more of a let down.

Three pitchers with last name of Brown. That won't be too confusing. Lara will be interesting, I'm not expecting much from him so if he hits this year that would really be encouraging.

Lara looked really good for second half of the season and started to click more. That mixes with in Arizona where he was an absolute monster until he hit that awful wall he wasn't able to get through. He has smocked the ball all spring. He is now 6'4 200 lbs which I believe, he is a well build young player. Remember, he will only be 19 all season! The Brewers have to strongly believe in him since they continue to push him.

Feliciano may be the youngest player in MWL and even more impressive he is a catcher!

REALLY hoping to have a game where all three pitch, and they are the only three that pitch.

Not necessarily hating on Lara just think he is a bit of a slow learner. Hopefully he can put together a promising year, but I don't expect it to show on the stat sheet all that much.

I think the Brewers really believe in his glove to be pushing him all the way up to A-ball already.

According to Chris Mehring's twitter, this is what the rotation will be for the Timber Rattlers:

1. Zack Brown
2. Trey Supak/Jordan Desguin
3. Tom Jankins
4. Cam Roegner/Braden Webb
5. Victor Diaz/Jake Drossner

That has a T-Rats promotion written all over it!

Gotta love the headline on the Post-Crescent season preview (several quotes included, by the way).

Brown to start Timber Rattlers’ season opener Thursday
