Between now and mid-March, I'll be finalizing minor league roster projections for all 30 organizations. The NL EAST, AL EAST, and AL CENTRAL are done. The NL Central, AL West, and NL West are up next.
Since there are a lot more players, especially pitchers, in an organization than there are available roster spots, I expanded the roster projection by as many as 10-20 spots for middle relief candidates and bench players. In many cases, starting rotations are expanded to six because there are so many candidates. As players are released or injured and we get closer to Opening Day, these projections will become closer to reality. Please let me know if I'm missing someone or if a player is injured or has been released.

I'm currently working on full Organizational Depth Charts in an excel spreadsheet that is available for MLBDepthCharts Magazine subscribers only. After I finish a team, I'll project the rosters for that organization's four full-season affiliates and post on the site as I did with the Braves. Click on the screenshots below to check it out.
