Historical Matchup:
  • Players in bold are on the active playing roster
  • The 40-man Date is only available for players who were not on the roster as of May 2012 which is when TBC started tracking 40-man roster daily movement.
  • Players listed on the 60-day DL or who are on restricted list are not considered as part of the roster.
  • The rosters are not updated in real-time. There's a lag of about 4-6 hours.
