Offseason Active Roster Tracker

Recommended Posts

I created this to be a tracker of "what the active (26 man) roster would be if there were a game today." I think it can be a helpful tool to see how things progress in the offseason. It is NOT a projection of what I think the roster will look like on March 31, just a roster you can make of players in the organization on a particular day. For example, Brian Goodwin and Danny Mendick are listed right now but I don't actually think either of them will be on the roster on March 31.

Who is NOT included : Free agents, even if they haven't been signed by another team yet (Rodon, Garcia, Tepera)

Who IS included: Players with options, up until the point those options are acted upon (Kimbrel, Hernandez)

Also included: Arb-eligible players, up until the point where tender decisions are made (Goodwin, Marshall, Engel, Giolito, Lopez)

For the last roster spots where there might be debate (Mendick vs Goodwin vs Gonzalez, Ruiz vs Burr) I just listed the player(s) who spent the most time on the roster in 2021 as a place holder until the organization makes a move.

That said, this is our current roster:

 

SP: Keuchel, Lynn, Giolito, Cease, Kopech

RP: Kimbrel, Marshall, Lopez, Hendriks, Bummer, Ruiz, Cordero, Crochet

C : Grandal, Collins

IF: Hernandez, Abreu, Anderson, Moncada, Mendick, Sheets

OF: Goodwin, Engel, Jimenez, Robert, Vaughn

 

As transactions are made, I will update this.

While it would create a significant amount of initial leg work, what would make this super useful is if it included current salary obligations.  That will give us a pretty good idea of what is realistic on the FA market.  I think as things stand, especially with Kimbrel and Cesar options exercised in this analysis, the Sox are nearing $170M payroll.  Not great for a team that probably shouldn't be expected to be in the top 5 spenders in the game next season.

That $19.67 figure includes a pro-rated portion of his signing bonus that was paid in 2020, and $4M of his 2022 salary that is deferred. I prefer to work with the actual amounts players will be paid in 2022 rather than what list listed on the books for that year.

Anyone else get the feeling that with the upcoming CBA talks we’re in for a very long free agency season and a drawn out hot stove?

My guess is a lot of teams will want to see that resolved before making big moves.

Yeah...I think your feeling is going to be reality!  Sadly...this will make the "hot stove" stuff go away!
