    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.

    Thanks for the quick response, and the one I hoped!

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

    How does Hicks’ decision affect rosters — specifically, is a player who opts out due to COVID automatically removed from the team’s 40-man roster (like a player placed on the 45/60-day IL)? If so, I think this means we currently have 59 men in the 60-player pool, 47 in the Busch camp, and 38 on the 40-man roster, right?

    I get your point.

    Strange that he should reappear on Memphis’ website re-do after being removed. I will indeed do more research before posting here. I know there have been errors in the matrix in the past, and that you work hard to keep it as accurate as possible. I’ll do my due diligence more… diligently… before posting here.

    Interesting, thank you. Another I just noticed is a catcher named Ryan McCarvel on the Springfield Cardinals website whom I haven’t seen in this matrix.

    Thanks Brian, you’re right. I didn’t see the 3 international players added on 09/03, or notice that 5 players on the 40-Man were being included in the Memphis and Springfield totals. That fixes it!

    I need some help reconciling the current Roster Matrix (Sat morning 11/16). The organization total says 309, but if you add up the teams it looks like 311.

    St. Louis 38
    Memphis 27
    Springfield 25
    Palm Beach 27
    Peoria 27
    State College 29
    Johnson City 29
    GCL 28
    DSL Blue 30
    DSL Red 28
    International Signed 23

    Urías is back but now Chris Ellis looks to be missing from Memphis (should be at 23?).

    It looks like Ramón Urías disappeared from the matrix. I think Memphis has 27 on its roster right now…

    Brian’s handy roster matrix gives the story on Voit as this:

    06/25: Voit Memphis to STL, added to 40-Man Roster.
    08/21: Voit STL to Memphis.
    08/27: Voit Memphis to STL.

    Thank you both. Sounds like clock starts when they hit the MLB roster, regardless of MLB service time.

    So of the twelve guys who aren’t arbitration-eligible until 2021, bottom line is:

    3 option years remaining: Alcántara, Brebbia, DeJong, Flaherty, Sherriff, and Voit.

    2 option years remaining: Bader, Lucas, Sierra, Sosa, Valera, and Wick.

    Have I got it?
