Fayetteville 2024

Talk about the Woodpeckers young roster here -

There are more players 20 and under on this roster than I remember being on low A rosters in the past:

RHP Sandy Mejia (1/3/04)
RHP Raimy Rodriguez (7/16/05)
C Will Bush (3/4/04)
SS Alberto Hernandez (2/4/04)
SS Chase Jaworsky (7/31/04)
3B Waner Luciano (1/13/05)
SS Alejandro Nunez (9/8/04)
OF Kenni Gomez (5/14/05)
OF Nehomar Ochoa Jr. (7/31/05)

Lots of high ceilings here.

And thanks for starting all these school busses this year!


I noted the amount of young starters in another thread and that it’s probably the reason why I’m more excited about this roster than any other in the system. A lot of high ceiling prospects on this team.


RHP Derek True, 2023’s 18th rounder, had a good season debut for the Woodpeckers last night. He threw 4.2 innings, 7K, 3H, 1BB. He pitched in relief all through college but the Astros are developing him as a starter.

Alonzo Treadwell (2nd round 2023) is now in Fayetteville after some time in EST. Hadn’t pitched since a back injury in April of last year.

Tredwell had a little more mojo tonight in his second appearance for the Woodpeckers. Seven strikeouts in 3.1 no-hit innings. Three walks, too, but still a big improvement over his first outing. Short clip:


He’s every bit of his listed 6’8”, huh.
