Let’s Talk About the Giants Current 40-Man Roster.

It’s time for teams to make the final decisions on the 40-Man to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft. The Giants planned ahead and did not make any new roster moves, as predicted.

One never knows how such moves can be so important for a team. In 2016 the Giants did this:

SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants selected the contracts of five Minor Leaguers on Friday and added them to the 40-man roster. The moves protected each member of the quintet from being taken in next month’s Rule 5 Draft.
The prospects involved were right-handers Chase Johnson, Reyes Moronta and Dan Slania, infielder Miguel Gomez and infielder-outfielder Orlando Calixte.

Reyes Moronta has been a key part of the Giants bullpen, until his serious arm injury. Get well soon Reyes!
Remember Miguel Gomez? He had a couple cups of coffee at Willie Mays Field and at one point appeared to be a legit cold-blooded hitter..

This tweet by Pavlovic sums things up pretty well:
