Welcome to Wisconsin….
A few odds and ends from the first full day of the Timber Rattlers in Appleton, Wisconsin.
It was Media Day today and there will be plenty of stories in various Fox Valley media to link to later tonight or sometime tomorrow.
I can share the 2013 Timber Rattlers rotation as it was announced by pitching coach David Chavarria. There will be four tandems to start the season with one stand alone starter:
THU: Tyler Wagner/Mike Strong
FRI: Damien Magnifico/Leonard Lorenzo
SAT: Brent Suter
SUN: Jorge Lopez/Ryan Gibbard
MON: Preston Gainey/Eric Semmelhack
There was a roster move yesterday. RHP Taylor Mangum – @themangral10 -has joined the Timber Rattlers. That puts the Timber Rattlers roster at 25.
Click the link below for the new roster, which has been cleaned up as far as the removal of double numbers and a few typos:
I taped the first edition of Timber Rattlers Field Pass for Time Warner Cable SportsChannel after Media Day. Manager Matt Erickson and team president Rob Zerjav are the guests. JP Cadorin will have a piece on Scooter Gennett and Hunter Morris that he taped in Arizona earlier in March.
The team did manage to get outside after media day. A quick stretch on the concourse and a quick game of catch in the parking lot. Field is still a little soft.
It can start warming up any day now. Any. Day. Now.
