Dodgers Officially Announce Opening Day Roster: The Complete Depth Chart for 2023

The Dodgers set out to secure another NL West title starting today and, as you know, they do it with a fairly different squad than we saw a year ago. Justin and Trea Turner are gone. Tyler Anderson and Andrew Heaney are playing for AL West teams. They don’t have a de facto closer.

Still, hopes and vibes are high out of the LA clubhouse as the championship aspired club looks to bring home another World Series ring.

Newcomers J.D. Martinez and Noah Syndergaard bring playoff experience and All-Star pedigree to the roster. Miguel Rojas brings an elite glove at shortstop to close the gap in the post-shift world. Rookies Miguel Vargas and James Outman bring some youthful exuberance to what had been an aging roster.

Here’s a look at the official 26-man roster for opening day 2023.

The one last minute surprise is RHP Ryan Pepiot heading to the injured list. Michael Grove takes his spot on the roster.


Outside of the last minute injury, there were no surprises from what Dave Roberts has said over the last week or so. Now, let’s take a look at how that roster shakes out and who can play where in the event of injury or days off.
