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 4/4!

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 2019" 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.

Arms don’t excite me too much to start years but some solid guys there. Most interested in Zavolas & Francis. File & Taugner have been solid. Meister has big arm. Hintzen with aggressive placement so look forward to see what he can do.

Bats excite me more with the two catchers. It’s like having Salome & Lucroy together so be interesting to see how playing time is split up. DH & maybe Feliciano getting some reps at another position to add versatility? Lutz is the other big one. Silva & Clark are players I like. Silva was great last year. Clark in the 60% of ABs he doesn’t K... he can absolutely smoke the ball. If only he can get to the 25-30% K% he could take next step.

Toss up. Think Biloxi is going to have their first none fun year to follow. Love the starting rotation but bats are VERY unexciting. Carolina’s are very blah but love catching duo. Lutz is arguably my favorite prospect. Segovia & Clark each have 1-2 standout tools (Segovia hit tool, Clark’s power & speed) make them worth following. Silva could really sneak up on people. Everything outside of Bb% was outstanding. If he can jump that to around 10%, he could be in running with Roegner for Clancy’s #1 prospect. Low K, big power, real good average. Older but 140+ wRC in Helena & Wisconsin.

At least San Antonio will be exciting. Wisconsin will have growing pains but always fun watching & following young talented kids. Rookie teams should be loaded.... all 3 of them after draft

Also, look for the money quote from Tristen Lutz, who has his eye on the CF graveyard in Zebulon.

Joantgel Segovia, even in his breakout half-season last year at Wisconsin, only hit 2 homers in 50 games and only had one career home run before last year.

He's got 2 in 8 games to start the year and seems to be doing quite well to start the year in Carolina.

I know his hype train slowed down a bit in the 2nd half after his promotion last year, but excited to see that maybe he's growing into some more power (extreme SSS alert).

Interested to hear what scouts say about him this year.

Another homer for Segovia. I saw a tweet the other day that said he had modified his batting stance a bit from last year, probably in an attempt to get to more power. Seems to be working so far.

Power is more or less the one giant hole in his offensive game (career .290 hitter with a .354 OBP but .056 ISO). If he can sustain this power surge (he already has tied his largest home run total for a single season, one more and he'll tie his entire pre-2019 career professional homer count), are we looking at an interesting prospect?

Not sure how he rates out defensively in CF, but kinda looks like they've let him play all over the outfield so maybe he's got a reasonable projection to a 4th OF type with hope for more?
