There will be 29-man rosters when baseball returns




 

One of the odder parts of the general agreement between MLB and the MLBPA governing the truncated 2020 baseball season was revealed earlier this afternoon: rosters are expected to expand to 29 players for the first month of the season once games begin.

"We made a proposal to the union that is completely consistent with the economic realities facing our sport," MLB said in a statement.
