Yet many players are still not on DL according to Yahoo!'s provider?
ESPN has all of them on DL.
Actually Utley and Howard were placed on DL yesterday according to MLB.
Can you clarify what deadline you're talking about?
And when you say Utley and Howard were placed on the DL yesterday "according to MLB", what source are you referring to? Because again, if it is the mlb.com website, that data is not only unofficial, by now I'm quite certain that it is editorial in nature and reflects information that is NOT official.
To be clear, all our data still indicates that neither Utley or Howard are officially on the DL.
Yeah I have to correct myself. I was wrong when I said official.
5 pm was the deadline for teams to set their opening day roster.
So it's technically not official deadline to place players on DL.
But in reality it is, and teams do place those injured players on DL prior to that deadline.
No team is going to play with only 24 players on their roster.
And if anyone pays attention to the 'not so official MLB site', will see that exactly whats happening.
So thats the deadline.
And ESPN had all those players on DL.
