This is the roster as of now

That is 33 players + 2-60 day DL players (14 pitchers, 19 position players)

  • 3 years if older than 18 on the previous June 5

 

Tyler Graham 
Michael McBryde
Kevin Pucetas
Adam Witter
Bradley Boyer
Robert Felmy
Jose Flores
Darren Ford
Matt Klimas
Daryl Maday
EME
Thomas Neal* ?
Brett Pill
Ben Snyder

 

*Not sure, kind of surprised me. However he was drafted in 2005

You figure we will add probably 1 catcher, 1 utility player and 3 pitchers ( 1 starter and 2 relievers) and we will probably cut F. The Lewis(I love that nickname) we will 3 spots on the 40 man roster available to "protect" prospects in the system. I find the only prospects i would even consider worth protecting are Neal, Pill, Snyder, Pucetas and Ford.

 

I only included a limited list of Rule 5 players, let me know if I left anyone notable off the list.
