My Minor League Roster Projections

These are my projections for the Giants' opening-day minor league rosters at AAA Fresno, AA Richmond, and A+ San Jose, based on last year's statistics, natural progressions, and what I've heard the groups are looking like so far at minor league camp. I'm basing this on the assumption that the major league bench will consist of Stewart, Pill, one among Fontenot or Theriot, Burriss, and Blanco, with Clay Hensley getting the last spot in the bullpen.

Tell me what you think and if you'd like to see changes.
