While their roster is not yet final, the following is a first view of the 27 players currently scheduled to make up the initial 2011 Muckdogs. The group includes ten just-drafted and signed players. Expect additions as other players are signed this week and beyond.
Once the official season-opening rosters for Batavia, Johnson City and the Gulf Coast League Cardinals are available, our roster pages here will be updated as will the Roster Matrix at The Cardinal Nation Blog.
