9/1/21 : Did Ya Know 🤔🤷‍♂️



At present eight National League clubs are vying for five playoff spots. The Dodgers, Giants, Brewers, Braves, Reds, Padres, Cardinals and Phillies are set to make the final push to determine who appears in the 2021 National League playoffs.


Here’s a look at the active roster makeup as of 8/31 for each club … ranked in order by the total of “Internally developed” … although Freddy Galvis was recently reacquired by the Phillies via trade I’m including him in the “Internally developed” total since he grew up with the Phillies.


Just a glimpse of the current playoff contending active rosters … of course they will continue to change … expands to 28 today plus players will move back and forth from the IL.


Summary of the 8 rosters … 208 players - traded for - 71 ( 34 % ), internally developed - 63 ( 30 % ), free agents - 66 ( 32 % ) and waivers/rule - 8 - 5 ( 4 % )
