Florida Gators on MLB Rosters

The 2020 MLB season is just around the corner. With a delayed start, the 2020 campaign will be only 60 games with teams reporting to their respective cities to start a three-week spring training-Esque build-up to opening day on July 23 and 24.

To make up for the truncated season and help teams cope with the difficulties of COVID-19, rosters have been expanded to allow up to 60 players that will be available to play this season. That includes a 30-man active roster, 10 players that will travel with the team and be eligible to be activated, and a 20 man taxi squad that will practice at a different site but will not travel with the team.

With players set to report on Wednesday, Gator Country wanted to keep track of all of the former Florida Gators that are on rosters with Major League clubs this summer.

Below is the full list of Gators and the teams they will play for this summer.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
