The Phillies’ 60 names are due today by 4 p.m. ET today.

They’ll break camp with 30 players while another 30 will head to Allentown to train at Coca-Cola Park as part of a satellite roster.

Any three of those 30 reserves could be on road trips with the big-league team as part of a “taxi squad.”

Anyone can be removed from the initial 60-player pool, but it will require a legitimate transaction (trade, release, waiver claim, outright assignment, etc.). And, once removed, those players cannot return. So, there is an element of strategy to how teams form these pools.
