- Mike Napoli (again, let's assume the deal gets finalized)
- Daniel Nava (don't be surprised to see him play some 1B in spring training)
We all know that injuries will take a toll on a few of these players which will make it possible to get to 25 by opening day. We also know that there will be a few surprises in spring training that we don't expect that will throw a wrinkle into things. Bryce Brentz is someone who I think could make the team ahead of schedule with a really strong spring training.
Here's how I'd get to 25: Lavarnway, de la Rosa, Kalish to Pawtucket; trade Aceves and put one relief pitcher on the DL (or send Bard to Pawtucket if he doesn't find his command)
What would you do?
