Sources: MLB plans for 28-man rosters for rest of season, postseason

MLB rosters will be reduced from 30 players to 28 starting Thursday and remain at that number for the rest of the season and postseason, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The initial plan had been to reduce the roster to 28 this week before reducing it again to 26 after another two weeks. However the recent outbreak of positive COVID-19 tests led to a change in plans..

The taxi squad will also be expanded from three players to five, sources confirmed.
