2021 Player Adds/Drops

Postby Kevin » Thu Feb 25, 2021 11:04 pm

I have completed my first draft of the players who will make up the player pool for the 2021 season. Notably, there are far fewer changes than normal among hitters. Perhaps that makes sense following a severely shortened 2020 season. But on the other hand, the number of new pitchers is pretty typical.

As usual, I am very open to suggested changes to these lists. I plan to finalize the player pool late next week, so you have plenty of time to look things over and share your thoughts.

Here are the current changes for the upcoming season:

Mike elected to move Shohei Ohtani from staring pitcher back to outfield this season. As a result, I have made the follow corresponding changes to the lists above: Mike Minor will remain in the league, but Josh Naylor will not be added.

Still a couple more days before I make this official, if you have any feedback to provide.

One final change... Josh Naylor is back on the add list and Yasiel Puig will now be dropped. I think it was a bit of an oversight on my part to not have Puig dropped from the get-go, considering I have heard absolutely nothing about him signing with a MLB team in recent weeks.

These changes will be fully implemented and the official draft pool will be available in the next 24 hours or so.
