Just a quick note, on May 7th, Garciaparra was sent to Reading, as he had already been added from Extended.

Couple of questions, is there a roster for players at Extended? Also, how long is Extended? I would think until the GCL starts.

I haven't received a roster from Extended in quite awhile.

If my memory is correct, you're right about the length of it.
