    I think the Roster Matrix needs to show Palm Beach at 27+6 with Elijah Cabell off the IL, correct?

    Will you include J Miller and Webb among the free agents to track on the matrix? I realize they declared before the World Series ended, but not before this webpage of the Roster Matrix started.

    So is Justin Miller now considered a major-league or a minor-league free agent?

    Yes, that looks right to me now. Glad to help!

    You’ve got 40+4 for St. Louis but there are 45 players under major-league contracts, right? I’m counting 45 in bold (31+5 in St. Louis and 9 in Memphis). So is it really 41+4 at the moment, and the 40-man roster is over-full?

    Thank you, sir! Any word on what’s going on with still unsigned draftee IF Xavier Casserilla?

    The Roster Matrix currently (09/24/2021 morning) shows Memphis as 31-3, but it looks to be 32-2 (only Dean and Webb on IL).

    The Roster Matrix also shows Alec Willis as the lone signed-but-unassigned draftee, but the FCL Cardinals website shows him on that roster:

    The top of the Roster Matrix currently (morning of 08/18) says “40+7”, but I think there are currently only 46 players under major-league contracts: 26 active roster + 3 on 10-day IL + 11 on optional assignment + 6 on 60-day IL. I am also only seeing 46 players with their name in bold. Is this just about waiting for Hurst to clear waivers (or not)?

    With Johan Quezada moving from Springfield’s COVID injured list to the 60-day IL, what is his new “available” date?

    Brian,

    Today (07/05) Memphis is showing 31+4, but I believe that roster is 32+3 with only Austin Dean, Alex FaGalde, and Johan Quezada on the IL.

    Unrelated follow-up question: when does the DSL start? I’m seeing conflicting reports.

    Thanks as always,
    Joe

    The Roster Matrix currently (06/18) shows IF Darlyn Del Villar in both Palm Beach and the Complex. The narrative has him in Palm Beach. The Complex total shows 34 but I believe it should be 37 (38 names are listed, including Del Villar).

    Brian, thanks so much for these responses!

    I wanted to get a little more clarity about nos. 5 and 6. If I remember correctly, during the 2019 MiLB season the full-season leagues (so our teams Memphis, Springfield, Palm Beach, and Peoria) had 25-man active rosters, but players moved to the 7-day injured list or restricted lists for these teams did not count against that number. The short-season and rookie leagues (so our teams State College, Johnson City, GCL Cardinals, and DSL Cardinals Blue and Red) had 35-man active rosters, also not counting injured/restricted players.

    How will the new 180-man rule work with injured players? If the franchise is permitted to have 180 players on the Memphis, Springfield, Peoria, Palm Beach, and GCL teams, that averages to 36 players each! Is the idea that they don’t want each team releasing a ton of players on account of the reduction in number of teams; just cram more guys into the remaining dugouts?

    The Roster Matrix lists 10 unsigned minor-league free agents after the 11/01/2020 additions, but should Ryan Meisinger be added as an 11th? I wasn’t clear exactly what happened with him at the end of the postseason. It looked like he declared free agency after being outrighted.

    Thanks, Brian! Could we see a bigger-than-usual taxi squad since they won’t want to bring new people into the bubble, or will it remain three?

    What are the postseason roster mechanics this year? I’m guessing it’s a set 28-man roster for each series, but with some sort of taxi squad? Is the 60-man pool over with now?

    The 09/22 transactions of Hudson to the 45-day IL and Whitley to the 28-man active roster have finally reduced the 40-man roster to… well… forty men… but it seems that the 60-man player pool is still at 61, right? 28 active + 32 at alternate camp + 1 (Dean) on 10-day IL = 61. Maybe somebody left the Springfield camp when Whitley was activated?

    Brian, thanks as always for your very thoughtful and informative answers. In this confusing time especially, it is great to have a resource who can help people who want to follow the mechanics of the game this closely.

    Is Ricardo Sánchez currently on the IL or part of the Springfield Camp roster? I guess I’m unclear how the injured lists work in conjunction with an ongoing camp.

    With 59 currently in the 60-player pool, does that create an availability, or is Hick’s spot considered “burned” now?
