Dodgers Officially Set Their 60-Man Player Pool With Some Surprises

The roster is set, and the season is on.



The Dodgers kept us waiting, but they finally announced their (sort of) full 60-man player pool for the 2020 season. That player pool included a few surprises, including plenty of catchers to choose from. 

The new roster rule for the 2020 season includes 60 players in order to account for the lack of the minor leagues and keeping a full roster at the big leagues. The Dodgers, along with every other team, will be able to keep 30 men on their active roster for the first two weeks of the season. After those two weeks, that number drops to 28. After a month, the roster will be set at 26 players for the remainder of the year. Players not on the roster will likely play at a close, but off-site facility. 

For the Dodgers, there were not any surprise signings or late additions as many had hoped. Fans were hoping that they would add to their catching depth by resigning Russell Martin, but that has not happened quite yet. There is still a chance that Martin could be signed. 

The 40-Man Roster

Everyone from the Dodgers’ current 40-man roster is currently involved in the player pool, as expected. Those names can be found here

The Surprises

There weren’t many surprises here, other than the fact that there were not any recent top draft picks involved. That could change once the draft signings become official. The addition of Diego Cartaya and Rocky Gale to the catching team was more than expected, though having plenty of catchers makes sense.

As it stands, there are 51 players on the player pool with the first update, so things could change. We will keep this list updated.

      • I’m a fan which is why I care. Everyone else seems to always be content with falling short. The fans are drooling over the offense while not realizing this pitching staff is not championship caliber

        • I might interject the team does have the best pitching staff in MLB. Any of the undesirables that we see on this list are actually positioned for many shut outs and those who are they’re can be exceptional for 3 innings or less. Baseball this year will be a game of changing rotations after each line up. Most teams will not let a batter of opposition see the same pitcher every at bat. We will only have 60 games so it is a great year to throw caution to the wind with the intent to develop players to go the distance at all positions. My strategy with this current pitching roaster and shortened year. “Don’t wait to change.”

          • Specifically the bullpen has a ton of names I’ve never heard of that is a huge weakness. I’m pretty sure those guys have never even pitched in the majors correct me if I’m wrong though

  1. Love baseball and love the Dodgers! And Dodgers fan for 70 years, but, unfortunately, this season is nothing but a sham. Count me out.

    • Ageed. I’ll watch the games but even if we win it all it won’t feel like a real championship.

      • I mean what do you want them to do? We’re already in June and missed 3 full months. Would you rather there be no season?

  2. I hope every one of them stays healthy. With the SP’s going only 4-5 innings, and assuming Urias and Woods are SP’s, I see the importance of multi-inning RP’s like Stripling, May, Gonsolin, and perhaps even Jimmy Nelson …… all capable. A solid roster for the Dodgers …………. go blue!
