Thank you to Johnny Walbert, Ryan Williams, Jeff Burkett, Paul Henderson, Ken Simone, and Jeff Swenson for great work in addressing usage and ways to ensure that all Groundouts have ample opportunity to fully stock rosters with enough innings and at-bats. We wrestled with five different concepts, and ultimately ended up passing only one resolution:
Starting with the upcoming 2023 season, PGB rosters will consist of 42-man active rosters, and we'll be eliminating the Restricted List. The extra spots can still continue to be used to house injured players, or they can be used to fortify rosters to ensure proper usage coverage. This should give managers another tool to aid in roster construction.
