40-man deadline: Which prospects are getting roster spots?

20 minutes ago

All 30 Major League teams had decisions to make ahead of today’s deadline to set 40-man rosters. Eligible players who were not added to their respective organization’s roster can be selected by another organization in the Rule 5 Draft, which is set for Wednesday, Dec. 6, in Nashville.

Players first signed at age 18 or younger must be added to 40-man rosters within five seasons or they become eligible to be drafted by other organizations through the Rule 5 process. Players signed at 19 years or older have to be protected within four seasons. Clubs pay $100,000 to select a player in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft. If that player doesn’t stay on the 26-man roster for the full season, he must be offered back to his former team for $50,000.

For this year, that means an international or high school Draft pick signed in 2019 had to be protected. A college player taken in the 2020 Draft was in the same position.

There were six players on MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects list who needed to be protected or become exposed to the Rule 5 Draft:

+ Adael Amador, SS/2B, Rockies (No. 21)
+ Jeferson Quero, C, Brewers (No. 32)
+ Emmanuel Rodriguez, OF, Twins (No. 48)
+ Yanquiel Fernandez, OF, Rockies (No. 49)
Nick Frasso, RHP, Dodgers (No. 65)
+ Daniel Espino, RHP, Guardians (No. 80)

+ indicates player has been added to the 40-man roster

It would have been surprising if any of these prospects did not end up on 40-man rosters by the deadline. Over the past eight seasons, all 88 Top 100 prospects who were eligible got roster spots:
