We will begin to see some formal minor league roster announcements soon. The formal announcement will come directly from the Sky Sox, 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 4/5!

NOTE: Last season, the affiliates released their rosters on Tuesday AM, just two days prior)

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 2018" 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.

The Timber Rattlers got a preliminary roster from the Brewers last Thursday. Subject to change, but it was pretty much what you would expect. The ones that stood out were Harrison and Henry at catcher, Garcia in the infield and Demi returns in the outfield.

Looking forward to seeing how Lutz and Harrison (especially behind the dish) do. I’m hoping Lutz is a prodigy and am hoping Harrison is a keeper at catcher, even if it’s as an average defender.

Timber Rattlers roster announced.

GRAND CHUTE, WI - The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have announced a tentative roster for the 2018 Midwest League season. The Milwaukee Brewers have placed 28 players on this roster. The team will need to be down to the 25-player limit by Thursday when the team opens their schedule with a game against the Beloit Snappers.

Baseball America ranks four players on this tentative roster as Top 30 Prospects in the Brewers system. They rank outfielder Tristan Lutz (11), catchers KJ Harrison (16) and Payton Henry (28), and pitcher Carlos Herrera (26) on their list. MLB Pipeline has placed Lutz (9) and Harrison (21) on their list of Brewers prospects.

Wisconsin has eight members of the 2017 Milwaukee Brewers draft class, including four players from the top ten rounds of the draft: Lutz (Competitive Balance Round A; James W. Martin High School, Arlington, Texas), Harrison (3rd round; Oregon State University), pitcher Bowden Francis (7th round; Chipola (FL) College), and pitcher Alec Bettinger (10th Round; University of Virginia) were all picked in the top ten rounds. The other 2017 draft picks of the Brewers to join the Rattlers this year are: Pitchers Dylan File (21st round, Dixie State College of Utah), Robbie Hitt (24th round, Quinnipiac University), and Christian Taugner (37th round, Brown University) and catcher Brent Diaz (29th round, Louisiana Tech University).

Seven players return to the Fox Cities from the 2017 team: Pitchers Herrera and Rodrigo Benoit; infielders Gilbert Lara and Trever Morrison; and outfielders Zach Clark, Demi Orimoloye, and Joantgel Segovia.

2018 TIMBER RATTLERS:
PITCHERS (14): Rodrigo Benoit, Alec Bettinger, Joaquín De La Cruz, Dylan File, Bowden Francis, Gabe Friese, Matt hardy, Nelson Hernández, Carlos Herrera, Robbie Hitt, Jenri Montas, Braulio Ortiz, Michael Petersen, Christian Taugner

CATCHERS (3): Brent Diaz, KJ Harrison, Payton Henry

INFIELDERS (6): Gabriel García, Gilbert Lara, Franly Mallen, Pat McInerney, Trever Morrison, Nick Roscetti

OUTFIELDERS (5): Zach Clark, Jay Feliciano, Tristen Lutz, Demi Orimoloye, Joantgel Segovia

I was at the opener about 5 years ago. It wasn't meant to be the opener as that game got snowed out, so the one I went to was a double header.

For $10, I got 5-1/2 hours of baseball. [smile]

Yeah, Scooter...

My wife fell in love with him right away there. He's about the same age as my son, except he's not 6'3" like my kid.

Was neat seeing him make it all the way up from there.

Gilbert Lara, who coming into 2018 had 35 career walks in 190 Minor League games, has 4 walks in his first 5 games. Way too early to tell but maybe a sign that he's making some adjustments?
