The answer is yes and no. I posed this same to the Ft. Myers FO last week about the possibility of Sano/Rosario being send down to Class Hi A where they played a bulk of their 2013 season. So yes they can be sent down to play in playoffs but there is a roster deadline a few weeks beforehand plus it is extremely frowned upon to send prospects back down. Of course there are stipulations mainly due to injuries etc. I did hear that back in ~1995 the Yankees sent several prospects down to face Ft. Myers in the playoffs for "more experience" it was hotly talked about in minor league circuits in a negative manner.
How do minor league playoff rosters work? Can Sano/Rosario etc. get promoted for Rochester's playoff run?
