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


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.
