Minor League Rosters set, where are the Hawks

The MLB season is nearly a week old, while the full-season Minor League teams will begin their seasons on Thursday and Friday.  The four Cubs affiliates (Iowa Cubs – AAA, Tennessee Smokies – AA, Daytona Cubs – Advanced A, Peoria Chiefs – A) have announced their rosters with dozens of former Hawks peppering their roster.

The players who have not been assigned to the full season affiliates will remain at Fitch Park in Mesa to begin Extended Spring Training or rehab programs for injuries.

A total of 25 players who previously played for the Hawks have been released during the off-season – including Corey Martin, Mike Perconte, Danny Keefe, and Carlos Rojas, who were let go by the Cubs last week.

A couple interesting moves – former outfielders Ryan Harvey (’04) and Kyler Burke (’07, ’08) are being converted to pitchers – Harvey in the Red Sox organization and Burke with the Cubs.  Josh Harrison (’08) looks to be the starting second baseman for the Indianapolis Indians in the Pirates organization, while three former Hawks – Darin Downs (’04-’06), Jose Ceda (’06), and Adalberto Mendez (’03) are all with the New Orleans Zephyrs, the AAA affiliate of the Florida Marlins.
