Farmstros' Round Rock 2010 lineup

Farmstros has a projected lineup for the Express in 2010, with some notes:

Catcher- Jason Castro (Up to Houston by mid-season)
1B- Jimmy Van Ostrand (Any chance RR can play a few games in Midland?)
2B- Jose Vallejo (Pudge trade pick-up gets full season in Round Rock)
SS- Wladimir Sutil (26 errors in AA in 2009)
3B- Chris Johnson (Feliz signed, Johnson will spend year in AAA)
Utility- Edwin Maysonet (Will probably bounce between Dell Diamond and Minute Maid)
OF- Drew Locke (Can he do in AAA what he did in AA?)
OF- Yordany Ramirez (Will bat catch up with glove?)
OF- Brian Bogusevic (Second full season as a position player)
SP- Polin Trinidad (Looking for big league precision)
SP- Yorman Bazardo (Called up at 1st big league injury)
SP- Wilton Lopez (Ended 2009 on fire)
SP- Wesley Wright (Continues transition to starter)
SP- Sergio Perez (5th man in rotation)
Bullpen- Chia-jen Lo (Moving up fast. May see Houston before September)
Bullpen- Casey Daigle (Veteran presence, could see the big leagues this year)
Bullpen- Evan Englebrook (Impressed in Arizona Fall League)

The point of about Wesley Wright certainly makes sense, and if Paulino and Norris start the year in Houston, it would open up a rotation spot for Wright. I find no fault with this.
