currently, the brewers have six minor leaguers on the 40-man roster that aren't part of the expanded september roster. and obviously, there is a slew of minor league players whose seasons have ended (not counting those getting ready for the arizona fall league).

obviously, any player could be recalled or have his contract selected for the rest of the regular season and/or the postseason (if postseason eligible), so what are these minor leaguers up to during this potential call-up time?

i'm sure they're working out in case they get a call, but i'm more curious if there's anything in their contracts (major league and minor league) that stipulates no vacations, no leaving the country (or in the case of foreign players, extending their visa through 1 october or even beyond), etc.

or is there nothing explicit in their contracts and minor leaguers just play it smart and postpone their weddings, vacations, etc. until after they know that their organization has been eliminated from postseason play?

from this tweet, we know that jorge lopez (on the 40-man) returned to puerto rico after the season ended. being a u.s. territory, lopez would've been free to return to the continental u.s. and not have to worry about visa issues (but obviously, travel logistics challenges as many in puerto rico are unfortunately facing right now).

this still doesn't answer my question . . . one has to think that mlb teams take steps to insure that they have reserve players readily available for activation from the second week of september on.

Well...if you're Tucker Neuhaus, Mitch Ghelfi, and Ryan Aguilar, you are living out of a decked out Ford Transit van out west. (check out their instagram accounts).
