The Philadelphia Phillies unveiled their 2022 Opening Day roster Thursday morning, and it includes infielder Bryson Stott.

Stott — who hit .406 in 32 Spring Training at-bats — will wear No. 5, and is part of a 28-man roster that the Phillies will bring to Citizens Bank Park Friday when they begin the season by hosting the Oakland Athletics:

As Phillies Nation‘s Destiny Lugardo noted above, the Phillies created a 40-man roster spot for Stott by recalling catcher Rafael Marchan and then placing him on the 60-day injured list. Left-handed relievers JoJo Romero (still recovering from Tommy John surgery in May of 2021) and Kent Emmanuel (dealing with a left elbow impingement) were already on the 60-day injured list.

Additionally, outfielder Odúbel Herrera (right oblique strain), left-handed reliever Ryan Sherriff (left shoulder strain) and right-handed reliever Sam Coonrod (right shoulder strain) will open the season on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to April 4.

Right-handed reliever James Norwood will open the 2022 season on the bereavement list.

Major League Baseball and the MLBPA agreed to expand active rosters to 28 players for April, after the owner-imposed lockout led to an abbreviated Spring Training. On May 1, the active roster will go back to being 26 players.
