How the Omaha Roster is shaping up

Royals optioned Manny Pina, Greg Holland and Blake Wood while assigning Mike Montgomery to AAA Omaha. Montgomery wasn't a guy I projected in the Omaha rotation but it appears the Royals believe he is ready to go which adds intrigue to a stout Omaha rotation and potential roster.

Here is what is headed to Omaha currently next to what I predicted early this year.

Projection vs What I thought previously
Mike Montgomery - Didn't have him on the breakdown
Danny Duffy - 50/50
Everett Teaford - Very Likely

Blake Wood - KC
Greg Holland - KC
Blaine Hardy - Very Likely
Brandon Sisk - Very Likely
Jesse Chavez - Very Likely

C Manny Pina - Lock
1b Eric Hosmer - 50/50
1b/DH Clint Robinson - Lock
2b Johnny Giavotella - Lock
3b Mike Moustakas - Lock
LF David Lough - Very Likely

We've yet to see how the Outfield, Middle Infield and the rest of the rotation and bullpen will breakdown but it appears Omaha will have the most talented roster it has had in a long time.
