Giants’ Fresno Grizzlies Release AAA Roster

By Bryan Rose

Below, you’ll find the opening roster of the Fresno Grizzlies:


Terry Evans
Darren Ford
Tyler Graham
Thomas Neal


Chris Stewart
Jackson Williams


Brock Bond
Manny Burriss
Conor Gillaspie
Edgar Gonzalez
Brett Pill
Ryan Rohlinger


Josh Banks
Casey Daigle
Steve Edlefsen
Alex Hinshaw
Andrew Kown
Marc Kroon
Shane Loux
Doug Mathis
David Mixon
Henry Sosa
Ryan Vogelsong
Matt Yourkin

First thing you might notice (which I’ve bolded because I have magical powers) is that Marc Kroon is indeed a Fresno Grizzlie – something that will make most of our baseball pants happy. Kroon’s simply in a waiting game right now – he should be up with the Big Boys at first opportunity, which is hopefully Mota blowing up. Not like a bomb or anything, though, that would work too.

Another thing you might notice is the lack of talent when it comes to the AAA starting pitching group. I mean, bajesus, Daigle isn’t even the best arm in his family. And it must be a little odd when your big league parent club has a bobblehead giveaway – of your wife.

In all seriousness though, an injury to the Giants starting five and the minor league ready options don’t look very hot. So um, cross those fingers snowflakes.

And look on the bright side. Todd Wellemeyer is waiting for a call…
