2011 Los Angeles Dodgers Opening Day Roster

The Dodgers set their 25-man opening day roster after tonight's 8-1 win in their spring finale at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers will open with five players on the disabled list, with nearly all of them expected back at various points in April. The biggest surprise on the roster is probably Hector Gimenez, the 28-year old catcher who also saw time at first base and even left field this spring. Here is the full 25-man roster:

The Dodgers had 39 players on their 40-man roster, but with the additions of non-roster invitees MacDougal, Cormier, and Miles, they needed to make two corresponding moves. The club designated John Lindsey and Jon Link for assignment to make room.

The Dodgers will need a fifth starter on April 10, so another move will need to be made to accommodate the pitcher, who will likely be Tim Redding, who will begin his season with the Triple A Albuquerque Isotopes.
