This is not necessarily a surprise, but it is piece that needed placing to be able to finalize this roster. Since Holder was a Rule 5 pick, he was taking a spot on both the 40-man roster, and the active roster, so now both of those will presumably go to the only guy that we know has made the team who isn’t on the roster already. Jonathan India is about to officially be a big leaguer. Still another spot to clear before that’s official, though, so stay tuned.
