I'm trying to figure out who makes this 25 man roster. Usually by this time in Spring Training the decisions seem a lot more clear cut, but I haven't been paying very close attention. So this is me trying to catch up while blogging at the same time.
There are 26 players on the roster now and Thatcher will likely start the season on the Disabled List. That brings the count down to 25.
So if the starting rotation is Garland, Young, Correia, Richard and Latos then you can send LeBlanc to Portland to make room for Matt Stairs.
But as Corey Brock reminds us Matt Stairs isn't on the 40 man roster yet, so one player will need to be dropped from there as well. Then you send the two other non-roster invitees, Denorfia and Stewart, to Portland with LeBlanc.
So if I'm following all this correctly then the only real question left is who will be dropped from the 40 man roster to make room for Stairs. Somebody please tell me the answer to that question then I think I'll be up to date.
