Why can't this player take part in the playoffs?

Only players who are on the active roster (by default the 25 man roster) on the day before the roster expansion deadline are eligible to be put on the playoff roster.  If a player is on the Major League disabled list on that date they will also be eligible.  

Example : If a player is sent down to the minors at the beginning of August and called up again on the 1st September then they will not be eligible for the playoff roster (this assumes a expanded roster date of 1st September)

If a player is injured they can be replaced by a player on the 40 man (expanded) roster.
