A few tweaks to the roster

The Thunder officially announced their Opening Day roster on Thursday, and there were a few tweaks to the roster. Infielder Reegie Corona was placed on the disabled list and Casey Stevenson was added in his place. Catcher Tyson Blaser was added and placed on the disabled list. Outfielder Shane Brown is just, well, gone. He's is Portland with the club but is no longer on its roster. He's also not on any rosters within the system. Basically, he's in baseball purgatory. 

The Thunder are in Portland today to start the season against the Sea Dogs, who will have rehabbing shortstop Stephen Drew with them all series. I'm in Lakewood to watch the BlueClaws take on Kannapolis, but here are the lineups for today: 

CF - Slade Heathcott
LF - Ramon Flores
RF - Tyler Austin
C - J.R. Murphy
1B - Kyle Roller
3B - Rob Segedin
2B - Jose Pirela
DH - Neil Medchill
SS - Walter Ibarra
LHP - Nik Turley

CF - Shannon Wilkerson
DH - Xander Bogaerts
SS - Stephen Drew
LF - Tony Thomas
1B - Travis Shaw
3B - Kolbrin Vitek
C - Christian Vazquez
2B - Heiker Meneses
RF - Peter Hissey
LHP - Drake Britton

As I mentioned, I'm in Lakewood. To prove it, here are videos of Phillies prospects Carlos Tocci and Roman Quinn taking batting practice. Enjoy.
