MLB moving to 28-man rosters for rest of season and playoffs


In light of two teams suffering COVID-19 outbreaks, Major League Baseball has made a change to the roster size for the rest of the season.

Teams had been allowed to carry 30 players since the start of the season. That was slated to go down to 28 on Thursday, and then to 26 after two weeks. As first reported by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, however, MLB still stick with 28-man rosters for the remainder of the season, as well as the postseason.
