I thought there was some wiggle room where if you have a position player on the 60 man DL, you can swap a separate position player for a position player on the 25 man roster.
If you have a pitcher on the 60 day DL, you can do the same with two different pitchers. As I recall, this is how the Reds got Chapman on the post season roster in 2010 even though he wasn't called up until Sept 1.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
