We gave you the BlueClaws roster the other day but might as well give you the others – right?

Here is Reading’s Opening Day roster for manger Dusty Wathan.

Notable: They should have an exceptional defensive outfield with Jiwan James, Tyson Gillies, and Leandro Castro. Congrats to 2011 BlueClaws pitchers David Buchanan and Jay Johnson, who both made the Reading Opening Day roster. In Johnson’s case, he joins Vance Worley, Mike Stutes, and BJ Rosenberg who have gone from Lakewood straight to Reading. Of the “Baby Aces,” Jonathan Pettibone, Trevor May, and Julio Rodriguez all will get tested in Double-A for the first time this year.

Here is Lehigh Valley’s Opening Day roster for manager Ryne Sandberg.

Notable: 2009 BlueClaws RHP Austin Hyatt is the lone “homegrown” starter. Jake Diekman, Phillippe Aumont and Michael Schwimmer head what should be a tremendous bullpen. Tuffy Gosewisch gets his first shot at a full-year in Lehigh Valley. Domonic Brown homered in his first two Triple-A spring training games and he heads the outfield.

Clearwater’s roster hasn’t been released yet but it appears that SPs Perci Garner (2nd rd, 2010) and Adam Morgan (3rd rd, 2011) will skip Lakewood and head there as they obviously aren’t on Lakewood’s roster.
