Contractual Length and Optional Assignments for the 40-Man Roster

40manroster3_medium

Inspired by the Navarro subthread. Few things:

1. The options used this year are included. So, Leslie Anderson will have two option seasons remaining entering the 2011 season. On this note, I've assumed a demotion for Matt Joyce upon his return to the active roster. If he is not demoted, he will have an option remaining for next season as well.

2. Notable players who are no longer on the 40-man roster but if they were added could not be outrighted again without being able to option for free agency: Virgil Vasquez, Elliot Johnson, and Dan Johnson.

3. I didn't even attempt to figure out free agency years for those either yet to reach the majors or with sparse playing time. It's one thing to assume Wade Davis is here to stay, it's an entirely different bag of beans trying to figure out whether Dale Thayer gets a steady job anytime soon.

4. Given that Anderson has fewer than five years of professional experience, he has four options total, with three remaining.

5. Blalock is one of those cases where he has options remaining and can be sent down, but only if he consents since he has more than five years of service time in the majors. Otherwise, he can elect to become a free agent.

This should be about as accurate as possible, although oversights and errors are an unavoidable part of unofficial service time projections.
