Ole Miss Baseball - Rebels in the Pros - MLB edition

As a follow up to last year, I'll do one now, for the players starting the year on a Major League roster, and another when the minor league camps break and I know who is where. We do have quite a few former Ole Miss players starting the season in the majors this year, so it is a pretty exciting time to be a Rebel given that and our nice start to the NCAA season. If I miss anything, please be sure to let me know.

Chris Coghlan, former NL Rookie of the Year, trying to get back on track, is the fourth outfielder for the Florida Miami Marlins this year.

Zack Cozart is the starting shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds. (Words I can never spell: Cincinnati and centennial). Looks like he had off-season elbow surgery, but I don't know much about that. Slated to bat second as well.

Lance Lynn was a key member of the World Champions of the World St. Louis Cardinals (1-0) bullpen last year, starts 2012 as the 5th starter. I am not sure when his first scheduled start will be.

Matt Maloney, Minnesota Twins. After spending the first 3 years of his MLB career with the Reds, Maloney has moved to a bullpen role with the Twins. Appears to be a 4A type, maybe he'll have some success out of their bullpen as a LOOGY.

Dreeeeeewwwwwwwww Pomeranz made the starting rotation for the Colorado Rockies out of Spring training. However, his first start is not until April 15, so he did not open the season with the club, but stayed behind in extended spring training for the minor leaguers. Antediluvian Jamie Moyer is taking his first scheduled start from what I gathered as they plan to limit Drew to 170 innings or so.

Alex Presley is the starting left fielder for the much maligned (by Thile, sorry Sam) Pittsburgh Pirates. (Pittsburgh, another Thile spelling deficiency. Also deficiency.)

Seth Smith has moved from the Rockies to the Oakland A's. He will be their DH verse right-handers it appears.
