Milb season starts today.
Players you are most looking forward to following this year/who you think could break out?
I got Alfaro, Mazara, Nick Williams and the Wiper amongst other.
I need 75 words so here is Keith Law taking about the Myrtle Beach Pelicans roster:
Top 100 prospects: C Jorge Alfaro
Former top 100 guys: RHP Cody Buckel
First-round picks: RHP Alex Gonzalez (2013)
Other prospects of note: 3B Joey Gallo, OF Nomar Mazara, 2B Chris Bostick, OF Nick Williams, RHP Keone Kela, LHP Victor Payano
Wilmington has some competition for the best roster in the Carolina League -- and it comes from the team the Blue Rocks host in their home opener Tuesday.
While Myrtle Beach has just one top-100 guy right now in Colombian catcher Alfaro, who has a plus-plus arm with plus-plus power and minus-minus patience at the plate, it's loaded with guys who could become top-100 guys in a year or so, depending on their development.
