The 40-man Roster

As the Astros prepare for next month's Rule 5 draft (which has brought the likes of Wesley Wright and Drew Locke to the organization), the Astros will be examining the 40-man roster. Who's on it now? (Note: * - denotes impending free agency)

Pitchers (17)
Alberto Arias
Yorman Bazardo
Tim Byrdak
Jeff Fulchino
Sam Gervacio
LaTroy Hawkins*
Brad James
Wilton Lopez
Brian Moehler
Bud Norris
Roy Oswalt
Felipe Paulino
Wandy Rodriguez
Chris Sampson
Polin Trinidad
Jose Valverde*
Wesley Wright

Catchers (2)
Humberto Quintero
J.R. Towles

Infielders (10)
Lance Berkman
Geoff Blum
Aaron Boone*
Chris Johnson
Jeff Keppinger
Tommy Manzella

Edwin Maysonet
Miguel Tejada*
Jose Vallejo

Outfielders (8)

Obviously, you add this up and see that there are currently 37 players on the 40-man roster. So there's some tweaking to be done here fairly soon. Anyone surprise you? Anyone you'd like to see added?
