Default 40 man roster set for Rule 5 protection

Hansen not on it, but there isn't a risk he will be snatched.

No surprises there.

Presuming the Sox sign 3 to 5 free agents and call up Robert and Madrigal by late April, that's 5 to 7 players they'll have to cut or expose to waivers. Who is expendable? Palka and Covey seem like top choices, but who beyond that? Anybody here that can be moved? I'd assume one of Leury or Yolmer is gone. I wonder if one can be packaged in a trade.

Ugh.

The fact that this team deemed Matt Foster worthy of a 40-man spot is very disheartening. He strikes people out, but he is an extreme flyball pitcher who will get wrecked at this level.

That puts him in the same bucket as several other relievers on the 40-man. Foster deserves his shot.

Some of those relievers will be released, I hope, as soon as better relievers are available.
