Four teams, Washington, the Philadelphia Athletics, Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati, already have trimmed their squads to the prescribed 25. The St. Louis Browns, who yesterday acquired second baseman Cass Michaels from Washington and entered a claim for Stubby Overmire of the New York Yankees, may have the biggest roster to chop. If they obtain Overmire, who will be released by the Yanks, the Browns will have 30 players. They can carry 26 because pitcher Dave Madison is a service returnee. ·ararstttfs centage basis from regular season play.
