Former Durham Bulls in the Playoffs

At least 13 former Durham Bulls are on the rosters of this year's playoff teams. Two of them are on the 60-day disabled list, so unlikely that we will see them in action. It's a bit of a commentary on the Rays that three of them (Gimenez, Navarro, and Lobaton) are catchers.

Congrats to them all. Good luck to them all.

Who did I miss?

Boston Red Sox
  • David Price, Durham Bull 2008, 2009 [stats]

  • Joey Rickard (DL, thumb injury), Durham Bull in 2015 [stats]

  • Melvin Upton, Jr., Durham Bull 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 [stats]

  • Chris Gimenez, Durham Bull 2013, 2014 [stats]
  • Brandon Guyer, Durham Bull 2011, 12, 13, 14 [stats]

We missed two former Bulls, but thanks to the Hit Bull Win Blog, we stand corrected.
  • Mike Montgomery, now with the Cubs, was a Bull back in 2013 and 2014.
  • Adam Liberatore, now with the LA Dodgers, was a Bull in 2012 thru 2014. He won't be pitching this post-season since he's out for elbow surgery.

Lots of interesting trivia at HBWB.
