Team to watch
The Isotopes begin the season with several players who will likely spend some time in the Majors before the season comes to a close. Jeff Hoffman, Raimel Tapia, Harrison Musgrave and Jordan Patterson all have the potential to be called up at some point in the near future.

On the shelf
Tom Murphy, the club's No. 11 prospect, sustained a hairline fracture in his right forearm during the middle of Spring Training. The catcher is expected to miss four to six weeks and after beginning spring competing for a roster spot, he's beginning the season on the DL. Rayan Gonzalez will miss the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Ben Bowden and Sam Howard are rehabbing to start the season as well and should be good to go in a couple weeks.
