40-man roster Question

Postby Rirruto » Sun Aug 14, 2005 6:49 pm

How does it actually work? Who can be on this roster? Do you have to be in at least AAA to be on the 40 man?

The reason I ask is because Lastings Milledge is not on the Mets' 40 man roster and we could kinda use him right now with Beltran and Cammy out.

The 40 man roster is simply the players who are protected by the organization from waivers and the Rule 5 Draft. Come September the active roster expands to allow for teams to make late season call-ups.
