Thursday, April 8 minor league updates (Opening Night!)
It's Minor League Opening Night!
Louisville kicks off the season this evening on the road at Toledo. First pitch is scheduled for 5:30 as RHP Sam Lecure will make the start for the Bats. It should be a lot of fun following Louisville this season as they appear to be loaded with talent.
Carolina gets underway at 8:05 down in Birmingham. I haven't seen a starting pitcher listed yet but I'm expecting it to be Matt Klinker. I'm looking forward to seeing how Yonder Alonso handles left field.
Our new affiliate the Lynchburg Hillcats start their season off at home against the Frederick Keys. The game starts at 6:05 with LHP Matt Fairel making the start. Notable position players include Devin Mesoraco, Neftali Soto, and Josh Fellhauer.
Dayton opens up at home against Lansing with RHP Josh Ravin making the start. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00.
Here's hoping to healthy and productive seasons by the Reds prospects.
