Through their @NYYPlayerDev Twitter account, the New York Yankees have revealed their Opening Day rosters at the minor-league level, including that of the Double-A Somerset Patriots.
With Double-A rosters now at 28 players instead of the more traditional 25, Somerset will have 15 pitchers and 13 position players when the team makes its debut as a Yankees affiliate on May 4. They’re currently carrying 29 players.
As far as the organization’s top-ranked prospects go, the majority of them aren’t ready for TD Bank Ballpark just yet, so only a handful of Baseball America’s Top 30 will be here to begin the season; only Luis Gil (4). Estevan Florial (12) are on Somerset’s roster this season. In addition, Matt Krook, who was ranked as BA’s 40th-best Yankees prospect, has also made the team, while Glenn Otto (28-MLB) is considered to be a Top 30 prospect by MLB Pipeline.
Additional rosters are as follows…
