There are still more than four weeks until Opening Day, but here's a stab at the Opening Day 25-man roster:
Jose Reyes, ss
Angel Pagan, cf
David Wright, 3b
Carlos Beltran, rf
Jason Bay, lf
Ike Davis, 1b
Brad Emaus, 2b
Josh Thole, c
Mike Nickeas (while Ronny Paulino serves remaining eight games on suspension)
If these projections materialize, that means Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez both are released. It also means out-of-options Nick Evans, Luis Hernandez and Manny Acosta are exposed to waivers before being sent to Buffalo, or traded beforehand. (Hernandez, still recovering from a foot injury, conceivably could open on the DL too.)
Jason Isringhausen obviously is a wild card for the bullpen if he can stay healthy.
