BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (July 1, 2020)---- A total of 143 players from Southeastern Conference universities were listed on 60-man pools of Major League Baseball teams. All 14 SEC schools are represented among the 2020 rosters.

Florida led the way with 18 former players, followed by Vanderbilt with 16, LSU with 14, Arkansas with 13 and South Carolina with 12.

According to MLB's Operating Manual for the upcoming season, all players on a 40-man roster "that the Club anticipates participating" during the season are included in the player pool, while the rest are made up of non-40-man roster players under contract.

No team will be allowed to exceed the limit of 60 players in its player pool at any time during camp or the regular season.

The 2020 season will open on July 23 or 24 with 30-man active rosters. Players not in that group will be assigned to an alternate training site, likely a nearby Minor League affiliate ballpark.
