Rattlers Alumni in the 2013 MiLB Playoffs

The Playoffs begin in most of the Minor Leagues tonight.  This is a post to give you a little information on which teams you may want to root for this year….if you’re into that kind of thing.

The details for this list were taken from the final stats of each team in the playoffs that listed the current players.

There are three leagues – four if you count the Mexican League – in the National Association without any former Timber Rattlers participating in the its postseason.  Those leagues are: Pacific Coast League, California League, and South Atlantic League.

Here are the former Rattlers in the playoffs.

International League:
Pawtucket (Boston): Ryan Rowland-Smith (’03)
Rochester (Minnesota): Jeff Clement (’05)
Durham (Tampa Bay): Jake Odorizzi (’10), Juan Sandoval (’03). Also, former Timber Rattlers General Manager Mike Birling is the GM for Durham.
