Boise Hawks on 2011 Opening Day Rosters

A total of 14 former Boise Hawks have made the 2011 Opening Day rosters in the Major Leagues, while eight other players have earned a spot on their club’s 40-Man Roster.

Of the 14, only one (Andrew Cashner) is on his first Opening Day roster, while no new former Hawks have cracked the big leagues to start 2011.

The list – Felix Pie (’02) – Baltimore; John Lackey (’97) – Boston; Joel Peralta (’99) – Tampa Bay; Jerry Blevins (’04, ’06) – Oakland; Francisco Rodriguez (’00) – New York Mets; Ricky Nolasco (’02) – Florida; Ronny Cedeno (’02) – Pittsburgh; Sergio Mitre (’01) – Milwaukee; Andrew Cashner (’08), Sean Marshall (’03), Randy Wells (’01), Geovany Soto (’02), Tyler Colvin (’06), Jeff Samarzija (’06) – Chicago Cubs.

On the 40-Man – Jose Ceda (’07) – Florida; Josh Donaldson (’07) – Oakland; Al Albuquerque (’06) – Detroit; Robinson Chirnios (’02), Brandon Guyer (’07) – Tampa Bay; Alberto Cabrera (’07), Casey Coleman (’08), Welington Castillo (’06) – Chicago Cubs.

In the next week or so, I will have the assignments for former Hawks as the Full Season minor league teams break camp – and a list of who is no longer with various organizations.
