September Roster Expansions Newsbeat

How MLB Can Improve Its September Roster Problem

September is here, which means crowded dugouts, endless pitching changes and players you haven’t seen since spring training are coming in tow. Historically (this season included), teams have been able to call up any player on their 40-man roster in September. Starting next season rosters must consist of 28 players in September, and top out at 26 players in every other month.

Roster expansion is still a hot-button topic in baseball circles, so our staff weighs in on the best way for roster manipulation to be handled in the final month of the regular season.

A roundtable discussion of a “solution” in search of a problem….

LEADING OFF: Carrasco, Frazier, Zobrist up as rosters expand

SPECIAL RETURN

Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who hasn’t pitched in the majors since late May when he was diagnosed with leukemia, will be reinstated from the 60-day injured list for a game at Tampa Bay. Carrasco made four rehab appearances with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, permitting one run while striking out eight in five innings. He’ll start up in Cleveland’s bullpen as he continues to build endurance in his arm.

“Great feeling, back to the baseball field,” Carrasco said on Instagram.

This will be an interesting day to watch in one regard- assuming there are no changes, this will be the last year of 40-man call-ups, and it will be interesting to see how the teams respond to this being the case.
