With 2 acquisitions to the roster (one of them with options but a good chance at making the team) and the trade of Plawecki, the Roster looks like it's shaping up.

April 1:

C: Ramos
1B: McNeil
2B: Cano
3B: Frazier
SS: Rosario
LF: Conforto
CF: Lagares
RF: Nimmo

Bench

d'Arnaud
JD Davis (3B, 1B, occasional OF)
Broxton (CF)
TJ Rivera (maybe, if he looks good in Spring Training) - has options but glove was an issue. Might see some time at 1st until Alonso comes up.

and room for 1 more or maybe they go with 8 pitchers for some of that time.

- - -

After Alonso . . . I think Frazier/McNeil will platoon at 3rd, Frazier will be an occasional defensive replacement to Alonso. TJ's role could go either way but if he hits, I think they'll keep him up.

They might need a SS in there, but I hate to waste a roster spot on a SS who can't hit like Guillorme. Maybe another trade is coming, but it looks like the roster is shaping up.

I don't think Dom makes the opening day roster, probably he's a trade chip unless he looks spectacular this spring.

- - -

I'm not going to do pitching. Too many unknowns.

I'd be really surprised if Alonso doesn't make the trip north. Though maybe that's what the Davis deal was about.

I’ll take a shot at this...

Depth Chart (13)
C - Ramos, Darnaud
1B - Alonso, Davis
2B - Cano, McNeil,
3B - Frazier, McNeil, Davis,
SS - Rosario,
LF - Conforto, Davis
CF - Lagares, Broxton
RF - Nimmo, Davis
Spring Battle: Last position player spot: TJR, Cheech, Dom, Guillorme, Blanco, Liriano, R Davis, Herrera

Pitching Staff (12)

Rotation:
1 - DeGrom
2 - Thor
3 - Wheeler
4 - Matz

Spring Position Battle - #5 Rotation spot - Oswalt, Vargas, Lockett, Lugo, Gagon, Flexen

Bullpen
Closer - Diaz
Setup - Gsellman
Setup - Familia
Swing Men, Lockett & Lugo

Spring Position Battle - 2 Bullpen Arms
Hanhold, Bashlor, Smith, Dowdy, Zamora, Sewald, Peterson, Santiago,Caminero, Rhame, ORourke

The team still might make 1-2 more trades but this is my view if nothing happens..

I find it hard to believe TdA will be ready for opening day. I think BVW still wants Maldonado if he can get him cheap. If he can, he signs another MiL FA at C and cuts TdA to save the money.

Deepest ML team roster we have had in awhile...whether they all remain effective pieces who knows

Nimmo/Rosario/Cano/Conforto/Ramos/Lagares/Frazier/Lowrie
Broxton/TDA/McNeil/Davis (then Dom, Alonso or Guillorme if they go 7 deep on pen)

deGrom/Thor/Wheeler/Matz/Vargas
Diaz/Familia/Wilson/Lugo/Gsellman/Smith/Zamora or Avilan or Santiago

They need to work on Syracuse a bit (catcher, outfield, starting pitching).
