Padres Roster Moves Are Coming

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

October is here which means it is the beginning of the paring down of rosters begins for teams eliminated from the playoffs. The Padres currently have 48 players on their 40-man roster due to players on the 60-day disabled list who do not count. Once the World Series is completed, the Padres will need to get down to 40 players or less. 6 players (noted below with lines thru their names) will become free agents and will automatically fall off the roster. This leaves at least 2 cuts that need to happen.

I have also bolded the arbitration eligible players. Information for this list comes from Padres.com as well as Cot's Contracts and an excellent article by A.J. Cassavell on MLB.com.
