Meet Your 2011 Fresno Grizzlies:

C Jackson Williams and Chris Stewart will platoon along with Dashenko Ricardo from the Rule 5 draft
1B Brett Pill will be the everyday 1st baseman
2B Emmanuel Burriss will be the everyday 2nd baseman
SS Brandon Crawford should start in AAA, but Ryan Rohlinger might get some AB's at Short in case of a call-up to the Big Leagues
3B Conor Gillespie should get some start, but Ryan Rohlinger will get a lot of AB's here too, especially if Pablo Sandoval struggles or gets hurt.
LF Thomas Neal will be the everyday Left Fielder
CF Darren Ford will be the everyday Center Fielder
RF Ben Copeland and Tyler Graham should platoon in Right Field

SP Josh Banks and Matt Yorkin should lead a promising staff, but the talent is in the bullpen.
