40-Man Roster, Current Payroll, and Uniform Number Pages –

Royals 40-man Roster / Royals Payroll

I've added current (as of 5am each morning) 40-man rosters to the team-year pages, and I've also added new pages for Payroll and Uniform numbers. These tables aren't new, but I've split them off by themselves to make things a bit more clear since they can vary by what year you are looking at.

    The 40-man rosters are a great addition. Will you be adding this feature to previous years as well? For instance, everyone who was on the 40 man during a given season?

    We don't have that info unfortunately and I'm not sure a source exists beyond MLB giving me full access to their player records. So I wouldn't exect that addition.

    The annual team media guides typically list the 40 man roster as it stands in spring training, plus a break down of the previous year’s roster moves. Gathering this info may end up being a community effort.

    Now where do I find the pinch-hitting and pinch-running totals for a team's players in a given year? That information was in the link you broke apart. I used that info extensively.
