Projecting Each MLB Teams Opening Day Roster

This years MLB season is certainly a bit different due to the outbreak of COVID 19. The season will begin on July 24th, and there are a number of compelling storylines. How good are the Houston Astros in a post-sign stealing world? Will Albert Pujols pass Willie Mays on the all-time Homerun list? With a shorter season, can a team surprise people and make postseason aspirations come true?

There are also rule changes, such as the outrageous and fragrant extra-inning runner on second rule. But, perhaps the two biggest for rosters, is when it comes to teams. This’ll be the first season with the 26-man roster implementation, but the first two weeks will feature 30 players on each Big League squad. On top of this, the National League has included an option for the designated hitter, which will allow 15 teams to utilize their roster differently than they did last year. With 60 players in each teams pool for Spring Training part II, I’m projecting who I think gives each team the strongest roster. I’ll give my personal lineup, rotation, bench and bullpen for each club.

Note: Players such as the Rockies Ian Desmond and the Nationals Ryan Zimmerman who have opted to sit out will not be included, nor will players who recently had surgery such as Mets Noah Syndergaard and Cubs Jose Quintana. I chose 15 pitchers and 15 hitters for each team.

The other aspect is the scheduling. Due to travel, teams will only be playing the other nine teams within their region. Thus, for this, I will be sorting teams by region. I will start with the AL East, and then go into the NL East counterpart, then continue from there.
