Jordan Bastian reports the Jays have set their 40 man roster. Ricky Romero, Robert Ray and Luis Perez were added. Les Walrond and Angel Sanchez have been removed.
Walrond and Sanchez were claimed by the Jays since the end of the season. Walrond is on his way to Japan while Sanchez has cleared waivers and is now on the Las Vegas roster. Yesterday Bastian reported that another player the Jays selected on waivers after the season, Kelvin Jimenez, was claimed by the White Sox. The major league rule 5 draft will be held at the winter meetings in a couple of weeks and today is the deadline for all teams to set their rosters. There is no indication as to whether the Jays will be active in the rule 5 draft.
Paul DePodesta describes the process and some of the thinking front offices go through in making their decisions.
