A few notes:
I still count Magglio Ordonez as a free agent. His option hasn't vested yet, even though it likely will.

Remember, any marginal Type A free agent probably won't net the draft picks. Between the team's unwillingness to offer arbitration in a dampened free agent market and the player likely to accept any arbitration, there are a ton of obstacles to those draft picks.

Orlando Cabrera has a clause in his contract that he can't be offered arbitration if he's Type A.

Positions are calculated as of today. No effort is made to project what position somebody will have played the most games by the end of the year.

The rosters are weird. Last year I used ESPN's rosters, but they no longer have the active rosters on their site (Seriously, what good does a 40 man roster do?). I instead used CNNSI, but am going to have to change that. Off the top of my head, I see Phil Humber, Juan Miranda, and Jack Egbert (all demoted) as well as the late Nick Adenhart, who is definitely not on the Angels' roster. So if anybody knows of a place that updates rosters daily and accurately and can be imported via web query into excel, leave a comment. Thanks.

I'll shoot to have these in spreadsheet format with all sorts of friendly sorting tools, sometime next month. There's no rush, since the results are pretty insignificant right now. Leave any suggestions on presentation if you like.

Doesn't mlb.com have accurate 25 and 40 man rosters? They seem to be updated promptly.

jose 'cy young' canseco said...

Is there any chance you can include all free agents? Maybe make all Tigers blue, all free agents bold, and all Tigers free agents bold and blue.
Thanks

Patrick said...

Nice work, Eddie. I always go to the team websites at MLB.com for roster information. They give you 40 man rosters, Active (25 man) rosters, and they have the NRI's up until opening day. They also have a list of all transactions, and it's very up to date. (I've had to scroll the transactions to see if a given player has options left- no site seems to have collated that information).
Suggestion- maybe you could bolden the free agents on other clubs in black?
Again- nice job.

MLBDepthcharts.com, it's a new site, and it is fabulous! They have been keeping the rosters up-to-date since the offseason, and they're trying to include as much relevant information as possible. Better depth charts and roster information than the teams' sites.

Can you provide your RSS address for subscribing to your posts? There is a link to subscribing to the comments RSS at the bottom of your page, but I can find no posts RSS.

Thanks.

MLB.com does not import into Excel, so I was unable to use it. I'll try MLBDepthCharts.com. Thanks.
