25 Man Roster Prediction As Pitchers And Catchers Report

Pitchers and catchers report to camp this Saturday and I could not be more excited. The first real sign that baseball is almost back full force. So with this on the horizon I thought now was as good a time as any to post my first 25 man roster prediction. This of course assumes Ryan Braun is not suspended and is active on April 6th when the Brewers open at Miller Park vs the St. Louis Cardinals. I will do another prediction right before they break camp. This is just my gut feeling before anyone even takes the field.

Starting Lineup:

1. Rickie Weeks - 2B
2. Nyjer Morgan - CF
3. Ryan Braun - LF
4. Aramis Ramirez - 3B
5. Corey Hart - RF
6. Mat Gamel - 1B
7. Alex Gonzalez - SS
8. Jonathan Lucroy - C


George Kottaras - C
Cesar Izturis - IF
Brooks Conrad - IF/OF
Norichika Aoki - OF
Carlos Gomez - OF

Starting Rotation:

Yovani Gallardo
Zack Greinke
Shaun Marcum
Randy Wolf
Chris Narveson


John Axford
Francisco Rodriguez
Jose Veras
Manny Parra
Kameron Loe
Brandon Kintzler
Marco Estrada

It wouldn't shock me to see Gomez shipped/waived/shot-behind-a-barn, in favor of Taylor Green. You lose some glove in the OF, but the potential upside at the plate is nice. Plus, Aoki looks to have quite the glove and range already - and you gain Green in the IF.
