Additions To 40-Man Rosters

Tuesday Nov. 20 was the deadline for teams to add players to their major league 40-man rosters to avoid exposing them to December’s Rule 5 Draft. The Rule 5 guidelines were adjusted in the 2006 Collective Bargaining Agreement, giving teams an extra protection year for players. High school players drafted in 2003 and college players drafted in 2004 become eligible for the Rule 5 for the first time this year.

The players listed below are those who were added to 40-man rosters in October and November to protect them from exposure to the Rule 5 draft.
