Well, the Trenton roster is here, and it's confusing

There were a few surprises regarding today's Thunder roster being announced:
1. No Tim Battle. This isn't a total shock, but most did predict him to be in the mix for a spot in the outfield.

2. The team's continuing trend of carrying three catchers. Last year it was Eladio Rodriguez, this year it appears to be Jose Gil (although the roster is preliminary and there will be two more cuts to get it from 26 to 24).

3. This is the big one. No Humberto Sanchez. After being "optioned to Trenton," Sanchez is not on the preliminary roster. Is he injured? Is he staying with Tampa? Is he moving to Scranton? Nobody really knows, and the Yankees aren't giving out much information.
