The Phillies have announced just 29 names.  The 30th name could be utility player Phil Gosselin, who impressed during Spring Training and Summer Camp.   The reason there might not be a move made yet is that another transaction needs to free a roster space.

MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that Robert Stock has been designated for assignment, freeing up one 40-man spot.  Other moves should be announced to account for Rosso, Kelley, and Davis, all of whom were not on the 40-man roster.

The Phillies also announced that Ranger Suarez will open the season on the injured list.  No announcement has been made as to his condition, but it has been suspected to be COVID-19 related.
