Printable 2015 Timber Rattlers Roster

Three new Timber Rattlers!

Three new Timber Rattlers!

Here’s the release on the website:

Three of the top 50 players taken in the 2014 Major League Baseball Entry Draft will be Timber Rattlers in 2015. Pitcher Kodi Medeiros (1st round, 12th overall pick), infielder Jake Gatewood (Competitive Balance Round A, 41st overall pick), and outfielder Monte Harrison (2nd round, 50th overall pick) were the first three picks of the Brewer last year.

There are 28 players on this roster. There will need to be three moves before the season begins on the road at Burlington, Iowa on Thursday, April 9 at 6:30pm to get to the league’s 25-player roster limit.

2015 Roster: 4 6 2015 Timber Rattlers Roster

NOTE: Updated roster to correct a player number.  There were a pair of #38s on the previous roster.

Older Transactions

After yesterday’s post, I went back to December and found three more transactions involving former Timber Rattlers.

Alex Liddi as a Timber Rattler in 2008.

Alex Liddi as a Timber Rattler in 2008.

Alex Liddi (’06, ’07, ’08) is now in the Kansas City Royals system.

Adding depth at third base and a potential platoon partner for Mike Moustakas in the form of right-handed former prospect Alex Liddi, the Royals unwittingly added a player whose personal and prospect history are both shrouded in mystery. In his age-21 season, Liddi crushed PCL pitching while playing for the Tacoma Rainiers. Playing half his games in a park that favored pitchers over right-handed batters, Liddi still managed a .259/.332/.488 split with 30 dongs hung in 138 minor-league games. Of course, Liddi whiffed at alarming rates in his September 2011 cup of coffee, and after a brief return to form following a June demotion to Tacoma, Liddi’s K-rates settle in over 30% at pretty much every stop between then and now.

Nathan Adcock (’07, ’08) signed with the Cincinnati Reds organization.

A Kentucky native, Adcock, 26, has the most major league experience of the three players signed, appearing in 43 games over parts of three seasons with the Royals and Rangers. Pitching primarily out of the bullpen, Adcock has gone 1-4 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. Adcock missed the first two months of the 2014 season, but pitched fairly effectively after his return. In 18 games at Triple-A Round Rock, Adcock went 1-0 with a 2.95 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He saw time with the Rangers as well, going 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in seven appearances. He saw his strikeout numbers increase from a career rate of 6.6 to 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings between Triple-A and the Rangers.

Rene Rivera as a Timber Rattlers catcher in 2003.

Rene Rivera as a Timber Rattlers catcher in 2003.

Rene Rivera (’03) was traded by the San Diego Padres to the Tampa Bay Rays.

What team isn’t enhanced by a strong catcher? The Rays have had trouble developing catchers within their developmental system throughout recent years, so trades have been their way to try to find solutions at the position. The duo of Hanigan and Jose Molina underwhelmed last season, so Tampa Bay hopes it’s stronger at catcher with Rivera and John Jaso, who was acquired in the trade that sent Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar to the Oakland Athletics.

Rivera’s ability to throw out potential base stealers is especially promising. Molina only caught 14 potential base stealers last season as opposed to allowing 38 stolen bases. Hanigan, meanwhile, threw out just eight potential base stealers but allowed 30 stolen bases. 

Alumni Birthdays for January 21:
Shawn Zarraga (’09) – 28
Colin Ryan (’90) – 48
Bill Eveline (’86) – 49
Gary Peters (’87) – 50
Scott Kershaw (’86) – 51
Jose Galvez (’75) – 60
