Roster Rules Series

As we enter the free agency period, you’re likely to hear a lot of terms about transactions that you may or may not be very familiar with. Over the coming posts, I am going to go over a lot of the concepts involved with major and minor league transactions, and the impact that they can have. Some of them are pretty straightforward, and some are confusing. I am hoping to shed some light on those ones.

  1. The 25 man roster
  2. The 40 man roster
  3. The Disabled List
  4. Free Agency and Free Agent Compensation
  5. Arbitration
  6. The Rule 4 draft (June Amateur)
  7. The Rule 5 draft (December)
  8. Trades, the Trade Deadlines and Waivers
