Teams faced a midnight EST deadline on Nov. 20 to add players to their 40-man rosters in order to keep them free from the clutches of rival organizations. Any player with requisite experience left unprotected is fair game in December’s Rule 5 draft. Eligibility for the Rule 5 hinges on the player’s age when signed.
• Players signed at age 19 and older must have four years in the organization. This group consists mostly of college players drafted in ’06.
• Players signed at age 18 or younger must have five years in the organization. This pertains mostly to players signed internationally or drafted out of high school in ’05.
Players in [brackets] were added to 40-man rosters earlier in the offseason to prevent them from qualifying for minor league free agency. On average, they have two or three additional years of experience than the players here, so they don’t count against the teams’ totals. But by the same token, they qualify as offseason additions, seeing as they did not receive September callups.
