Roster Moves!

The Opening Day roster will be announced on Wednesday, but will feature five players who have never made an Opening Day roster, meaning:

Jose Altuve
Brian Bogusevic
Jason Castro
Marwin Gonzalez
J.D. Martinez

The main thing is that Brett Wallace will be headed to Triple-A, where he said:
“I’m obviously disappointed. But I’m going to take it and go down there and work hard and try to get back here as soon as I can.”

So we can reasonably assume the following:

*Your defensive lineup will be:
C1 - Castro/Snyder
1B - Carlos Lee
2B - Jose Altuve
3B - Chris Johnson
SS - Jed Lowrie*
LF - J.D. Martinez
CF - Jordan Schafer*
RF - Brian Bogusevic

* - Both are currently injured, with no real timetable for their return. The Rule 5er Gonzalez making the Opening Day roster could indicate that Lowrie's thumb is in rough shape, and he may have a DL stint in his future.
