40-Man Roster Roundup


This evening marked the deadline for teams to add Rule 5 draft-eligible players to their 40-man rosters. (MLBTR’s Steve Adams explained the process in full this morning). Accordingly, we’ve seen a large swath of transactions in the last few hours. Here, we’ll make note of the players each team protected from the Rule 5 draft, acquired from outside the organization, and removed from the roster before the deadline. We’ll also keep track of how many 40-man roster spots each team has left vacant.
