Rainiers Opening Day Game Thread

Season Preview below. I’d link to it, but just scroll down – it’s not that hard.

Tacoma is opening up at home tonight against Salt Lake City. First pitch is at 7:20, with pregame festivities beginning at 7:00. Matt Fox will be on the hill for the Rainiers, which isn’t super exciting, but if you go to Cheney, you’ll get to see Vinnie Catricala, Carlos Triunfel, Adam Moore, and some guy named Mike Trout for Salt Lake. Garrett Richards, a good prospect for the Angels, is taking the hill for SLC as well.

If you don’t want to trek down to Tacoma, you can listen to the game or watch it on MILB.tv.

    In addition to Trout, the Angels have another of their top 10 guys in Salt Lake, 3B Luis Jimenez. While Jimenez is half the player of Tacoma’s Luis Jimenez by volume, he’s a much bigger prospect.

    He’s a 3B whose ascent up the ranks was slowed by a bad injury (labrum tear) in the low-minors. He put up a pretty nice line at AA Arkansas last year and has a chance to break out in the PCL this year.

    Hank Conger’s still hanging around, hitting in AAA and not in MLB. He really could use a change of scenery.

    Loek van Mil is 7’1″ tall.

    David Pauley’s in their bullpen, and was pretty good for the M’s. Jeremy Berg’s a submarining reliever, which is always sort of interesting.

    Brad Mills is their version of Anthony Vasquez (it’s actually somewhat comforting to know that many/most teams have one).

    Ryan Langerhans caught on with the Angels and is in the OF for Salt Lake.

    Jorge Cantu’s on the roster, because why not.

    Adam Moore gets the rehab start tonight.

    Adam Moore playing like a m already. Passed ball.

    Treyvon strikes out on a ball in the dirt. Then two weak pops. After that top of the first… Inauspicious start to the season.

    Is it just me or is luis jimenez actually bigger than the batters box?
