Teams will have a 30 man roster in July and that pares down to 23 by Sep or the start of the season. So 7 will be cut or move to the affiliate list.
Affiliate lists are 18 deep. In general each year they consiste of 10 futures that were just drafted in May, Six from the prior years futures draft, and four others.
So this July most teams will have an affiliate list of ten '01's, six '00's and two '99's.
Thanks for the info. Good discussion.
