INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - Major League Baseball is considering a change to its longtime rule allowing active rosters to expand from 25 to 40 from Sept. 1 through the rest of the regular season.
MLB executive vice president for baseball operations Joe Torre says general managers discussed the matter Wednesday on the opening day of their annual meeting.
Some teams have been reluctant to use the larger limit late in the season. They have cited not wanting to disrupt minor league teams in their playoffs, and those decisions have led to big league games in which teams have differing numbers of available players.
