Roster only reflects players currently on the 40-man roster.
Players who are out of options heading in to the 2011 season get preference over players with options remaining.
Additional preference goes to players with guaranteed contracts, and players who have been tendered arbitration offers.
Actual roster predictions won't begin until Spring Training starts.
