You might have noticed a lot of teams in baseball making signficiant roster changes today and yesterday. The Rays have added Desmond Jennings and Jeremy Hellickson to the 40-man. The Orioles have added Brandon Erbe and five others. The Cardinals have added a whopping eight players.
The Yankees have added none.
I checked with Austin Jackson this afternoon just to be sure, and Jackson said he hasn’t heard anything about 40-man moves to protect players from the Rule 5 draft. You can bet Jackson will be one of the Yankees protected. If he hasn’t heard anything, the moves haven’t happened.
Things have been pretty quiet since the World Series. Might start to get a bit louder as of tomorrow.
