With the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot announced, there are plenty of former Dodgers eligible for enshrinement in 2020.
Even though none of these players won a World Series with the Dodgers, and few of them were with the Dodgers during seriously competitive seasons, all of these players had at least partial seasons with the boys in blue. Some came in as prospects and others came in as veterans, but as fans, we certainly remember all of these players.
For some, like Andruw Jones and Bobby Abreu, their names lent more excitement than their actual on-field production. Their veteran presences are similar to that of Russell Martin and David Freese, just without their level of production.
For others, like Josh Beckett and Jeff Kent, there still was plenty of juice left in the tank for a major moment or two, even if their presence on the roster did not make or break the team’s chances at securing a spot in the postseason.
Some of the players on this list certainly do not seem like they belong together. How could Manny Ramirez and Paul Konerko be on the same bracket as Gary Sheffield? Really, every player on this list played at least part of their career during the same early 2000s era that defined how the Dodgers would roll into the 2010s, which they exit now with plenty of momentum headed into the new decade.
In this list, I’ll break down the ex-Dodgers’ existing Hall of Fame ballot members by position, splitting pitchers, infielders, and outfielders.
