Scioscia wants to see baseball limit September callups

ANAHEIM -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia is among those who would like to see Major League Baseball limit the amount of callups teams can make in September.

On Sept. 1, rosters expand from 25 to up to 40 players.

Scioscia, on Commissioner Bud Selig's Special Committee for On-Field Matters, would like to see that number decrease to 30.

"It's just not representative of what a championship roster is for a championship season," Scioscia said of rosters with nearly 40 players. "There's a lot of strategy in when you build a roster. I think a team that has consciously gotten those players that are versatile to help them through a Major League season loses that advantage when a roster can be 40, because the versatility isn't as much of a factor."
