Spots To Fill?

For most teams in the American League, the 25-man roster will consist of five starting pitchers, seven relief pitchers, two catchers, six infielders, and five outfielders– with one of the infielders/outfielders/catchers also being a regular DH. Though for the Mariners we have more DHs than lockers in the locker room.

So let’s assume– yes, I know what assuming does we have discussed it before– that the Mariners start the season with seven guys in the bullpen.
