SS Tyler Wade (#7), OF Dustin Fowler (#10), and RHP Brady Lail (#22) each ranked on the pre-season list and project to begin the season with the Thunder. Fowler would be making his Double-A debut.

17 players listed have already worn a Thunder uniform in their professional career including the 2015 Smith’s Ace Hardware Pitcher of the Year, LHP Caleb Smith.

The Thunder and Yankees will make a separate announcement prior to Opening Day (Thursday, April 7) containing the Opening Day roster.

Fans will have their first chance to meet the 2016 Thunder at the team’s Welcome North Open House on Tuesday, April 5. For more information, click here.
