As expected, the Dodgers took until the absolute very last second to make this decision, so much so that this didn’t even become public until 34 minutes after the 10am ET deadline. But finally, we have a roster:
C (2) — A.J. Ellis, Tim Federowicz
IF (6) — Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Ellis, Hanley Ramirez, Juan Uribe, Nick Punto, Michael Young
OF (4) — Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig, Skip Schumaker, Scott Van Slyke
PH (1) — Andre Ethier
PR (1 )— Dee Gordon
Pretty close to what we expected, really, but with the great news that Gordon did in fact make it over Jerry Hairston, which I find shocking but exciting — it’s absolutely the right move.
Capuano did end up making it over Edinson Volquez, which I considered to be something of a toss-up, but as the last pitcher in the bullpen it’s not super relevant. No Brandon League, no Carlos Marmol, no Hairston… considering the options available, this is about the best we could have hoped for, I think.
