Understood but that's still a misleading form of a deadline. By that definition a team could have submit a 1 man roster and left 59 spots open. 

True but then they'd have to sign the other 59 guys and all their regular 25 man guys would be ineligible.

I think the 40-man was automatically included for every team anyway so the minimum a team could've submitted as 40.

Did anyone on the Marlins 40 man not make the player pool? 

I don't think that's possible, from how I understand it. I think everyone on 40-man is automatically part of it. I could be wrong though, this whole process has confused the crap out of me.

I read that someone on the 40man could be excluded if the team didn't think they could play this season such as someone with a long term injury or someone the team didn't want to play this season like a prospect not yet ready for the majors. 

If so then it makes it more interesting that guys like Bleday and Meyers made the list.

17 of the Marlins players will workout at the "Alternate Training Site" in Jupiter which means they almost for sure won't make the opening day roster, they're basically back up options for later in the season.

So that leaves about 40 players which means they only need 10 cuts to finalize the opening day roster. 

With the original rosters set to be 26 that means 4 extra guys will make the team, I'd assume the Marlins use that on 2 pitchers and 2 position players.

I like Coop and think DH will help keep him in the game longer with his injury history. I didn’t realize he was closer to 30. Really hoping to see BA come out and have another strong season as well. Adding one more reason to hate this virus it freaking hurts that we lost most of the season. I was really looking forward to seeing the growth from all the prospects.
