The Arizona Diamondbacks have released the roster for the Reno Aces, their AAA affililiate in the Pacific Coast League. The most exciting prospects on the club are outfielder A.J. Pollock (our #6 prospect) and infielder Ryan Wheeler (#15), both moving up after a season in AA Mobile. Most of the rest of the roster includes veteran minor leaguers, who are ready to be called up if needed in the Majors. The starting rotation will be led by two pitchers with some Major League experience, Barry Enright and Joe Martinez, while the bullpen will be led by closer Mike DeMark. Here is the full roster for the AAA Reno Aces:
SP: Barry Enright, Chris Jakubauskas, Zach Kroenke, Tom Layne, Joe Martinez
RP: Jonathan Albaladejo, Sam Demel, Jason Lane, Jensen Lewis, Daniel Stange, Mike Zagurski, Mike DeMark, Bryan Woodall
C: Konrad Schmidt, Mark Reed, Ryan Budde (DL)
IF: Jake Elmore, Taylor Harbin, Mike Jacobs (Suspended), Tommy Manzella, Cody Ransom, Randy Ruiz, Rusty Ryal (DL), Ryan Wheeler
OF: Evan Frey, Cole Gillespie, Ryan LaPensee, A.J. Pollock
Two players are starting the season on the Disabled List, catcher Ryan Budde and infielder Rusty Ryal, while 1B Mike Jacobs is serving a 50 game suspension for a positive HGH test.
