18th round draft pick Randall Thorpe and 34th round draft pick Dusty Harvard. I see them on the Great Falls team for tonight’s opener:

The roster was augmented Saturday by the arrival of outfielder Dusty Harvard, a 34th-round draft pick from Oklahoma State. The Voyagers currently have only five outfielders on the roster.Cron has chosen a 24-year-old right-hander, Trey Delk, to start on the mound tonight. Delk was a 29th-round draft choice in 2009.

He will be followed to the hill by David Holmberg on Tuesday, Thomas Royse on Wednesday, Steven Upchurch on Thursday and Addison Reed on Friday for the home opener at Centene Stadium.

Reed is the top recent draft pick here, a third-rounder from San Diego State. The 18-year-old Holmberg was a second-round draft choice in 2009 and pitched in Bristol, Va.

Cron said it’s likely his starting position players will be Kyle Davis at shortstop, Jeff Tezak at second, Juan Silverio at third and Leighton Pangilinan at first. All played here or at Bristol, Va., last summer.

The outfield will be chosen from among veterans Ryan Hamme, Michael Early, Ryan Lee, Randall Thorpe and Harvard.

FutureSox on Randall Thorpe:

Expected to star as an Aggie and develop into a legit 5-tool player, Thorpe only had 21 AB’s as a freshman, going 2-21, finishing with a line of .095/.136/.238 with 3 SB/4 ATT. Unsatisfied with his playing time he transferred to San Jacinto JC (TX), but not before he excelled in the MINK Summer Collegiate League (wooden bat league), where he hit .282/.400/.479 and flashed his defensive prowess in center field. At San Jacinto Thorpe hit .297/.420/532 with 6 home runs and 11 stolen bases. He walked at a good rate, 16.1%, but his strikeout percentage, 25.4%, is alarming. Thorpe flashed all five tools at San Jacinto, but questions over his ability to hit remain, due to his inability to make consistent contact.

And here are their stats:
