As always, these rosters are anything but locked in. At least a handful of players will drop out due to injuries, so if you feel a deserving player was snubbed, fear not -- there’s a decent chance he will make the roster in due time.

Some current snubs include Brandon Nimmo, Jesús Aguilar, Trea Turner, Brandon Belt, Ross Stripling, Jeremy Jeffress and Adam Ottavino in the NL, and Andrelton Simmons, Eddie Rosario, Jed Lowrie, Andrew Benintendi, Blake Snell, James Paxton, Charlie Morton, Collin McHugh, and Héctor Rondón in the AL.
