The one and only Jason Leblebijian
Going through the 2014 Lansing Lugnuts position players with 2015 forecasts/guesses:
Anthony Alford: impressed in five games with the Lugnuts before heading to the SEC to play college football; decided to play baseball full-time and spent the winter in Australia; would not be surprising to see a return to Lansing this season.
Justin Atkinson: utility infielder has transitioned to catcher, could very well return to Lansing
Seth Conner: catcher/nicest human alive, could well return to Lansing
L.B. Dantzler: likely bound for Dunedin with potential promotion to New Hampshire
D.J. Davis: top prospect struggled with the Lugnuts, could well return to Lansing
Matt Dean: on his way to Dunedin to start (and slug) at first base
Chaz Frank: hustle outfielder could land in either Lansing or Dunedin
David Harris: potential breakthrough player with speed and surprising power, Lansing or Dunedin
Daniel Klein: likely bound to catch in Dunedin
Jason Leblebijian: by the end of last year, he was the heart of the Lugnuts; send him to Dunedin
Derrick Loveless: Dunedin's starting corner outfielder, hopefully continuing last year's breakout showing
Dawel Lugo: Dunedin's starting shortstop, with huge offensive potential if he keeps maturing
Mitch Nay: Dunedin's starting third baseman, and ready to crush it
Santiago Nessy: traded to Kansas City, and likely a starting role with the A-Adv. Wilmington Blue Rocks
Ian Parmley: outfielder in Dunedin
Carlos Ramirez: converted to pitching, could well see action on Lansing mound
Mike Reeves: catcher in Dunedin/New Hampshire
Jorge Saez: catcher in Double-A New Hampshire... and potential 2016/2017 Major Leaguer? It couldn't happen to a better guy.
Chris Schaeffer: outstanding organizational guy, should have whatever role he wants with Blue Jays; New Hampshire catcher?
Rowdy Tellez: Lugnuts starting first baseman / power hitter
Dickie Joe Thon: starter in Dunedin

I present to you this box score, in which future Hall of Famer Joe Morgan collected zero hits and still scored five runs.
