Notable players not on the roster include Bartolo Colon, Raul Valdes, Hector Noesi, and Austin Romine.

David Waldstein is reporting that Raul Valdes will not be on the playoff roster. Meanwhile, Chad Jennings offers some more information.

Notable players who do still have a full locker: Valdes, Chris Dickerson, Austin Romine, Francisco Cervelli, Luis Ayala and Hector Noesi.

Notable players who do not still have a full locker: Laffey, Greg Golson, Ramiro Pena, Brandon Laird, Dellin Betances, George Kontos, Andrew Brackman and Scott Proctor.

This could be a sign of which players are making the roster, or it could just be random. I'm leaning towards it meaning something, as the players that do not have lockers look like they should be the players that don't make the roster.

As for Dickerson, Jennings already reported that he will be on the playoff roster.

When the entire roster is announced, we will update this post with the roster. We will front page it, but still check here for updates.
