Coming North

After weeks of machination and discussions, the group the Thunder will send north is finally set.
A source on Saturday told The Trentonian that the following players will help open Trenton’s 20th anniversary season and christen the new Arm & Hammer Park.

1 - J.R. Murphy
2 - Kyle Higashioka
3 - Tyson Blaser
4 - Kyle Roller
5 - Jose Pirela
6 - Walter Ibarra
7 - Rob Segedin
8 - Kevin Mahoney
9 - Reegie Corona
10 - Tyler Austin
11 - Slade Heathcott
12 - Ramon Flores
13 - Neil Medchill
14 - Shane Brown
15 - Nik Turley
16 - Francisco Rondon
17 - Matt Tracy
18 - Caleb Cotham
19 - Zach Nuding
20 - Dan Burawa
21 - Aaron Dott
22 - Shaeffer Hall
23 - Tommy Kahnle
24 - Kelvin Perez
25 - Josh Romanski
26 - Graham Stoneburner
27 - Branden Pinder
28 - Jeremy Bleich

Most of those names were easy to figure out. Austin, Heathcott and Flores, for example, were long rumored to be slated to form an all-prospect outfield.

The Trentonian reported last week that the rotation would be Tracy, Cotham, Turley, Rondon  and  Nuding.

Likewise, Burawa, Pinder and Kahnle were always a likely trio begin in Double-A. Jeremy Bleich’s return made a lot of sense, too.

The returns of Stoneburner and Romanski are also unsurprising, but Perez was a bit unexpected, considering he was promoted to Scranton in early August last year.

1) No, I don't know who is going in the opener.

2) Yep. I wrote Bleich twice and omitted Burawa. Oops.

Who out of this group gets the first callup to the big club? And is it likely to occur this season?
