Re: Dragons announce 2012 roster
A few interesting things I noticed:
-Yorman and Duran were both promoted. I thought Duran might have stayed a bit longer based on his strikeouts, and Yorman based on his age/performance, but apparently not. Perhaps they can get back some prospect value and confidence in a hitter's paradise.
-Cingrani skips up to Bakersfield. I guess he's going to get a trial by fire with regards to starting pitching, as he was a closer up until recently.
-Kyle McMyne in the bullpen. I'm glad they're going ahead and making the transition due to his struggles starting in rookie ball. Hopefully it brings back his value as a prospect.
-Sean Buckley is at first base. Guess they really don't believe in his defensive play, though it may be because Junior Arias is taking up the 3B slot. It'll be interesting to see if Buckley gets time there or if the change is permanent.
