Garrison optioned to Double-A; five others sent down
Garrison, Mesa and Pope are interesting because you'd figure that, with their relative levels of experience, they'd be sent to different spots.
Mesa, who hasn't played a game above High-A, figures to be the Thunder's opening day center fielder. With 371 1/3 innings of Double-A ball between them, Pope and Garrison both seem ticketed for Scranton.
The options made today are only placeholders, to be sure, but they are a bit intriguing on March 16.
