Alumni roster update
With spring training finished and the first of the minor leagues beginning their season today, here is an updated list of which Revolution alums are where. The exemption from this list is RHP Shawn Hill (’12), who’s late arrival to Toronto Blue Jays camp means he has not been assigned to Triple-A Buffalo yet, and is in extended spring training in Dunedin, Florida instead. First baseman Chad Tracy (’13) was released by the Baltimore Orioles, after he was left off the Triple-A Norfolk roster out of camp, despite making some late appearances in big league spring training games.
LHP Scott Rice ’11: New York Mets (MLB)
LHP Ian Thomas ’12: Atlanta Braves (MLB)
LHP Ryan Feierabend ’12: Round Rock Express (PCL, AAA Rangers)
RHP Josh Judy ’13: Albuquerque Isotopes (PCL, AAA Dodgers)
3B Andy Marte ’13: Reno Aces (PCL, AAA Diamondbacks)
RHP Brett Tomko ’13: Omaha Storm Chasers (PCL, AAA Royals)
1B Brian Burgamy ’13: Binghamton Mets (EL, AA Mets)
OF Tyler Graham ’13: Richmond Flying Squirrels (EL, AA Giants)
Scott Rice and Ian Thomas both in the National League East makes for a long list of firsts and potential firsts: Rice becomes the first Revolution alum to play in the Majors in back to back seasons, the combination of Rice and Thomas make for the first time two Revolution alums are in the Majors at the same time, with Rice and Thomas each pitching on Opening Day on March 31, the date marked the first time two Revolution alums appeared in the Majors on the same day. The Braves host the Mets April 8-10, which will mark the first time two Revolution alums are on Major League rosters of opposing teams. Should they each appear in the same game, it will mark the first time two Revolution alums will compete against one another in the same Major League game, and the first time two Revolution alums will appear in the same MLB game period.
