Rules state that each club is required to provide 6 players.

Could be it means a minimum of 6...

No mention of that in the official press release-

Roster size is established at 35 players per team. Each major-league organization is required to provide seven players subject to the following eligibility requirements:

• All Triple-A and Double-A players are eligible provided they are on Double-A rosters no later than August 15.

• Each organization is permitted to send two Class A Advanced-level players in addition to the current allowance of two "A-exempt" players (who are under contract as of August 15). Foreign players are allowed as long as the player is not on his native country’s primary protected player list.

• No players with more than one year active or two years total of credited major-league service as of August 31 (including major league disabled list time) are eligible except a team may select one player picked in the most recently concluded Major League Rule 5 Draft.

• Each team is allotted 20 pitchers but only 15 are designated "eligible" each game day.

If the number is 7 and they announced 4, then doesn't that mean they can add 3 more?

So I guess the number (7) is either just suggested or a minimum.

According to Michael Mayer they can add 4 pitchers aka not McNeil without removing someone. He flat out said 4 pitchers spots.

Yup. 4 pitchers, Roster says NYM in 4 pitchers slots. They can add 4 pitchers. Team already has 4 OF's on the roster, 8 IF's (one pending from the Reds)

I thought they could also provide "taxi squad" players or something like that, who only play 2-3 times a week. Maybe McNeil could slot there?

I feel like they might want to give Uceta some rest since he'll probably end the year with roughly 70 innings but I can see the rest.

I can also see PJ Conlon.

Shaw and Taylor seem like wastes, but we do usually send over a few NPs to get beaten up a bit over there.

Wondering if they use the spots for some bigger names guys who are shut down but not necessarily seriously hurt - Dunn (depending on what happens there), Holderman, etc.

This could've been one reason they slowed down his innings (moved him to pen).
