Roster currently sits at 34 (20 pitchers, 14 position players).
Key upcoming dates:
November 15–Roster must be finalized ahead of next month’s Rule 5 draft
Possible additions (6):
RHP Jayden Murray (MLBP #12, BA #18)
SS Christian Gonzalez (MLBP #17, BA #26)

OF Corey Julks (MLBP #30)
OF/1B Scott Schreiber (Arizona Fall League standout)
RHP Matt Ruppenthal (Arizona Fall League standout)
Note: rankings per MLB Pipeline (MLBP) or Baseball America (BA)
None of the guys listed are slam dunks to be added (most are in fact longshots). I’ll guess Murray and Julks get added.
November 18–Non-tender deadline
Possible subtractions (7):
A number of guys left the org as minor league free agents the past few days including 2 with past MLB service time–Alex De Goti and most notably Andre Scrubb.

France’s fastball sits 91-94 mph with riding cut and a flat vertical approach angle. His primary secondaries are a mid-80s cutter and low-80s sweeping slider, but he’ll mix in a mid-70s curveball with depth in lieu of either at times. His fifth pitch is a low-80s changeup that mimics the shape of his fastball It had the lowest usage rate of his four secondaries but is still a primary part of his arsenal.
