The Dodgers set their forty man roster on Wednesday night and although most of the decisions were obvious, there were a few that stood out. The more obvious decisions were Keibert Ruiz and Yadier Alvarez being added to the forty man roster. Ruiz is the Dodgers’ catcher of the future and Alvarez has been a headache but he still possesses a talented right arm.
The players designated for assignment or cut were Tom Koehler, Erik Goeddel, Zac Rosscup, and Tim Locastro. The unprotected players were Drew Jackson, Cristian Santana, and Andrew Sopko.
