Minor League Baseball rosters

As with nearly all North American professional team sports, the size of Minor League Baseball teams is limited by rosters. These size limits vary by each classification. All MLB-affiliated Triple-A and Double-A teams are limited to 25-man active rosters.[1] Unaffiliated Mexican League teams have 35-man rosters, but are limited to 30 active players per game.[2] Class A-Advanced and Class A teams are limited to 25 active players with a total of 35 players under control with additional limitations in regard to prior minor league experience. Teams at lower levels have 35-man active rosters with limitations on minor league service time. A team's reserve roster consists of injured players on the disabled list, those who are restricted or suspended, or who are otherwise temporarily inactive.[1] Major league players on rehabilitation assignments do not count against active roster limits.[3]
