Here’s Your 25-Man Dodger Roster

jansen_dustinVia press release, the Dodgers announced their 25-man Opening Day roster. As we discussed yesterday, Clayton Kershaw‘s trip to the disabled list removed any remaining intrigue, since removing him and Jose Dominguez opened up two necessary spots.

For posterity, here it is:

Pitchers (12):

Zack Greinke
Dan Haren
J.P. Howell (L)
Kenley Jansen
Brandon League
Paul Maholm (L)
Chris Perez
Paco Rodriguez (L)
Hyun-jin Ryu (L)
Brian Wilson
Chris Withrow
Jamey Wright

Catchers (2):

Drew Butera
A.J. Ellis

Infielders (5):

Dee Gordon (L)
Adrian Gonzalez (L)
Hanley Ramirez
Justin Turner
Juan Uribe

Outfielders (5):

Mike Baxter (L)
Carl Crawford (L)
Andre Ethier (L)
Yasiel Puig
Scott Van Slyke

Infielder/Outfielder (1):

Chone Figgins (S)

Disabled List (6):

Josh Beckett, RHP (15-day, right thumb contusion, retroactive to March 19)
Chad Billingsley, RHP (15-day, right elbow surgery, retroactive to March 19)
Scott Elbert, LHP (60-day, left elbow surgery, retroactive to March 22)
Onelki Garcia, LHP (60-day, left elbow surgery, retroactive to March 22)
Matt Kemp, OF (15-day, right ankle surgery, retroactive to March 19)
Clayton Kershaw, LHP (Teres Major strain, retroactive to March 23)

I don’t know why it entertains me so that Figgins is listed separately, but it does. It really does.
