Round Rock Express Opening Day Roster (from Scott Lucas)

Here is the Opening Day roster for the Round Rock Express, with added insights from Scott Lucas (@scottrlucas), who writes the minor league reports for the Newberg Report. Make sure to add Michael Kirkman to this roster and take Daniel McCutchen off, as those moves were made after this writing. If C Chris Gimenez clears waivers, he will also be on this roster.
