Teams set 40-man rosters ahead of Rule 5 Draft

With only 40 spots on each organization’s roster, there are some very tough decisions for teams to make this time of year as to which prospects to protect.

The deadline to make those choices is Monday at 8 p.m. ET. Some moves have already been made, but that’s the timetable for all teams to figure out who lands a coveted 40-man spot and who is left unprotected. The latter group will be exposed to selection by the 29 other teams in the Rule 5 Draft on Dec. 14 at the Winter Meetings in Orlando.

It’s Official: MLB OKs Marlins Sale to Sherman-Jeter Group

Major League Baseball’s owners unanimously welcomed Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter to the ownership ranks on Wednesday, approving the Marlins’ sale to the group led by the venture capitalist and the Yankees legend.

The vote was conducted via conference call. Approval is contingent upon the closing of the sale transaction with the Marlins’ current ownership, led by Jeffrey Loria. That is expected to take place within the next week.

Release the hounds!
